    Good morning, lovelies.

    I'm just about to head off to work (back tomorrow evening) so am hereby officially handing the POAS Baton over to @Tahli. Make sure you disinfect it well first my love, it's just pulled up what will be my final BFN for this cycle. Sorry girls, looks like I'm out

    DH and I have decided we are not going to waste any more time, worry or money on OE cycles, and are instead seriously considering donor embies or failing that, donor eggs. Between you all and I, I have secreted away a last amount of about $4K which is what I call my "Last ditch, final chance" at becoming a Mother. I would much rather do our final shot with embryos or eggs which are more likely to produce a successful result, and have no reservations about the non-genetic link at all. So we are moving forward with that in mind, and hopefully an Angel will come to us in our time of need

    I guess the best part is that this route also gives us a little leeway time-wise too. Time for us to heal after the loss of Blossom, time to heal physically from all the meds, and time for us to save some money for our future nursery (I hope!)

    OK, I'd better get moving.

    So @Tahli, when might we expect you to start POAS? Hmmmm?!

    See you tomorrow ladies

    @Blossom74 I'm shedding tears for you in my car on my way to work today. I'm so sorry. The decision to give up on anything is so hard but often it is what is needed to create a new opportunity. Soft cuddles for you today xxx

    Blossom I am so sorry to hear about your bfn. I am glad you have some money to move on with donor embryos.

    Personally I don't think I would consider DE but that's just me. Want our own baby but won't break the bank doing it. Women who donate Embies are Saints, I couldn't do it.
    Must be a long waiting list for DE I would imagine

    So sorry @Blossom74
    The world is just so bloody unfair!!!!!!
    For me personally when we made our decision to use DE I felt this massive sense of relief, like a mountain of pressure had been taken off me.
    Might I suggest you use a tiny bit of your stashed cash to do a little something nice for yourself? (Massage/facial) I think you've earned it. X

    @Blossom74 Fruck and Double Fruck!!! I'm so sorry Luv

    I'm so glad you've got some $ stashed away for your Plan B with DE/Embryo's though I'm sure it still must be heartbreaking making the decision to stop with your OE's. Better than the alternative though isn't it Luv

    I'm glad your DH is on board with it too as I know going down the donor whatever path isn't for everyone but I'm guessing it makes it easier not to have plead your case when one of you is for it and the other against. One less battle on this sh!t of a journey that is infertility/IVF.

    Have a safe and swift trip Luv and we'll see you when you get homexo
