Fly safely @Bongley.
And bless those gorgeous people who didn't reach their destinations today. RIP. xx
No embryo transfer for me today -- all arrested yesterday it seems. WTF meeting next week with Warren after I spend a few days eating my own weight in chocolate and fruit buns.
Sorry to hear that Rubywoohoo. I was hoping the slow and steadies would make it across the line for you.
THIS. Exactly this @Summer. Yes, your DH's relationship with DSS is important, but so is your need to become a Mother. I see you as such a warm, loving woman and it upsets me greatly that of everything you are having to deal with right now, becoming a Mother has not been on the list of priorities with your DH.
We all recognise stress around here. Everyone is stressed. But at the end of the day, that's not enough of an excuse for your DH not wanting to support you in this. It's not an excuse for ignoring the issue or hoping it will go away either. I so worry that in your generosity you will continue to put yourself and your needs last, and I would be so devastated for you if in 5 years time you find yourself bitter and resentful with your dreams to become a Mother unfulfilled.
I KNOW you know all of this. I KNOW you know that time is constantly and quietly slipping away from us all. I really hope that you can get your DH on board with your plans to become a Mother ASAP, because as a man and as a husband who is supposed to love and support you, well frankly... right now he is letting down the team
Hoping I have again not overstepped the mark. Go gently on yourself hon and get rest where you can, even if it is just having a lie down for half and hour and closing your eyes
Sorry to keep banging on about it, but in the interests of arming myself with as much information as possible and attempting to quiet my addled mind....
For those of you who have done local DE, can you give me a little bit more information about the process? Assuming I get my ad approved and posted up, what happens next with regard to:
1. What sort of initial contact should I expect from a potential donor?
2. What sort of things should we be discussing?
3. How do things proceed with regards to actually starting the process?
4. What sort of things do the counselling sessions address?
Any information about the process would be gratefully received
@Summer people think they are giving you some consolation telling you things like that but it's really just making you feel like C R A P. I'm sorry you have to put up with that when so many other things are going on with your life. It's the last thing you need. I'm with the others here: Look after yourself first. You have to keep your eyes on the prize and make sure your health doesn't suffer and your TTC journey doesn't get lost in the backwash from this latest development with DSS.
