    I take my hat off to the lovely woman on Surprised By 5, who recently gave birth to 5 beautiful babies. She is Superwoman I reckon.
    Ditto. Along with her 3 other kids of course! My goodness. She should post some babies to this thread.

I think he's overwhelmed and not dealing with it all particularly well.

    So right now I'm being the bigger person and am trying my best to support him and relieve some of the pressure wherever I can. But that means the baby talk has not come up again. Because my cycle was all stuffed up and now my timing doesn't work the way I was hoping, I'm planning on seeing my FS next week and getting a plan like @Blossom74 where my cycle is managed so I can fit one or two in before I turn 45 and time it in-between my traveling. I will need DH on board, so I'm just biding my time to pick the right moment to bring it up as I have no time to waste. I think he will be OK with it if he knows for sure that this is the end of my OE journey and the cut off is when I turn 45. I don't think he'll deny me that. But as for talking DE, that might have to come a bit later once he's in a better place and not quite as overwhelmed. I'm doing my research so I'll aim to get through OE first, and then I'll have a good starting point to approach him about DE.

    Unless we split up. Then I'm f**ked.

    Oh gosh hon, I do hope it doesn't come to that. I agree that it sounds like your DH is under a lot of pressure at the moment, but at the same time, they say "There is no right time to have a baby." And frankly I would argue that at 45 it's a bl@@dy good time to be thinking about it, especially if you're considering OE's!

    Is it illegal to find an Aussie donor just by advertising on sites like BH etc? I seem to see advertisements like that from time to time....

    I still have a few attempts up my sleeve for an OE cycle and hope for success with that, but I will be looking into EDA's site etc for further information in due course.

    @Blossom74 Only if the recipients live in Victoria and haven't had their ad approved by the guvmint. Once its approved I guess you can slap the ad anywhere you want to.

    @Summer I was good with all that until the last line! It does sound like a horrendous amount of pressure on you both. Just terrible timing for all these things to be happening at once but you aren't in the position of being able to wait
    Going back to your last line, do you think your relationship is on the rocks??

    congrats Caesardust!

    I had my P4/progesterone BT today. it's 38.7. not sure what this means (I don't think I've ever known the number before) - she said it's all good and to keep taking the meds each night as I have been.
