I'm a bit worried about doing the standard ICSI since even with the HAICSI my fert rates have been about 50% twice and once got to 70%.

    All those acronyms, I have no idea what most of them even mean! I'm still such a newbie even now I'm a year and a half in

    I do know that our clinic does ICSI for us. I'm not sure if they offer other alternatives or not.

    We also do TESA for sperm retrieval.

    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.

    On my stupid i phone and every time I go into a thread on here I keep hitting the pregnancy due date icon at the top of the frucking page. Why do they have it there it is so annoying. I am so angry ATM I think it might be the prednisone. Had a yell at the DH yesterday and today have just woken up grumpy so it's not looking good. Here we go again one cycle last year I threw him up against the wall because of a cooked chicken incident & I mean literally picked him up and threw him. My Poor DH.

    @Summer Gorgeous, beautiful, always putting others needs in front of your own Summer. I remember about 6 months back @BlondeinBrisvegas saying something along the lines of 'you know where I stand on this'....in relation to your DH being unsupportive and your absolute burning desire to be a Mum. I am now in BiB's camp.
    What would happen if you emailed Cape Fertility Clinic for example and just got the ball rolling. Started filling out the forms at home. Printing off egg donors profiles and leaving them sitting where you work and DH could see them. So not actually transferring money for the donor/cycle to start...but putting all the ground work in.
    Surely it would either see DH on board or not.
    Also, have you got access to some funds to make motherhood happen. I appreciate that DH is financially comfortable, but can you actually access some of it to have your own needs met?
    I say this from the bottom of my heart....it is your time to be a mother. YOUR TIME. Are you listening??
    With massive compassionate love, .

    I'm sorry, hon. I do sympathise, I really do. But that is freaking hilarious and I can't stop giggling about it.

    A cooked chicken incident

    I must hear more!

    Nicely said @Tahli.

    @Summer, we are all coming from a place of friendship and love for you. We know none of this is easy, but I think the general consensus is that it is YOUR time now hon You have paid your dues.

    Motherhood and TTC is not easy and there is no guarantee for any of us that it will work, but don't leave yourself wondering hon. It's time for you to give it a shot

    That's it there isn't much more to it. He bought home a cooked chook for dinner and I flipped out because I had already taken something else out. It was completely irrational. So now he just refers to it as the cooked chicken incident.
