    The entire time I was on the list waiting for a donor I was told that I was going to get 6 embies. Then when my number came up they changed it to only getting 4 defrosted eggs with no guarantee of fertilisation. I was devastated but I had to go along as I had been waiting a while and not getting any younger. It failed and then I was told the waiting list for another go was 18 months at least. Never again😡

    mc details mentioned in this post

    I passed the baby intact in its sac a few mins before 4am, just under 7months earlier than we would have liked. the sac looks like a large grape and I can just see her inside. we saved her for either testing or a goodbye in the ocean. I didn't want her to be flushed down the toilet. she's back on ice for the moment. the heaviest cramps started around 3am in frequent waves a few mins apart but it's calm now, 30mins later (so far) I didn't take the neurofen - felt like it a few times but it wasn't screaming pain and I felt I needed to feel everything. thanks everyone for your support and love. I'm still numb but happy she's safe again and at rest

    I hope this isn't tmi. wanted to save what happened for my future reference/email logs

    today/sat 19th march is 9weeks 2days by scan date/transfer date or 8weeks6days by LMP. I suspect she passed in me overnight thurs night (or perhaps friday daytime) but as I woke fri and the happiness feeling I'd had all along (even in the midst of all the pain these last few days it was present underlying - hard to explain) was gone I think it was overnight thurs or at least by 7:30/8am fri when I woke

    i've always thought her name was Grace / Gracie. DP wanted Harry (Henry ) if a boy

    I feel there was so much beauty too shining within the sadness & pain of the past hours. she was a special gift, never to be forgotten. RIP little Gracie

    @winsor, sitting here crying for you and your DH this morning. I am so very, very sorry for your loss.

    Little Gracie will always be a part of you both, and knew nothing but the surrounding love of her parents until the end.

    Sending you massive, massive hugs

    I would strongly suggest, if you have used the same FS for previous cycles requesting a discount and perhaps mention that nowadays it is cheaper to go overseas.
    I personally think they "double dip" for DE cycles and the extra costs are unjustified. Ask for a discount and ask to pay "option b" so you don't have to pay it all upfront just the Medicare gap further down the track.
    Hope that helps a little

    Thank you @MissDa, that is very helpful.

    It also highlights to me that we don't have enough money to do a DE cycle and may instead have to pursue donor embryos as a lower cost alternative.

    There are pros and cons on both sides, I know. I had very much liked the idea of a donor egg cycle and felt confident that I might be able to find a donor. Not sure about embryo donors and how common they are though, through EDA?

    This weekend DH and I are going to formulate 2 advertisements to send to the Minister for approval. I might actually do two separate ads - one for eggs and one for embryos. I have emailed my clinic about estimated costs for a DE cycle so that we are more informed in our decision. I am also going to look into World Egg Bank at my clinic's suggestion.

    Winsor I am so sorry for your partner and you.

    I am sorry that little Grace couldn't stay and happy that she got to experience so much love in the time she was with you.

    I know my advice means diddly, but I wouldn't go for the chromosome testing. I have had to have 4 d&c's and only passed one naturally. This one was measuring behind and I just knew in my heart it was chromosomal. Had he been measuring to dates with good heartbeats like some of the others I may have been tempted but once I saw him in his little sac, I knew I didn't want anything done to him. What I did was buy a beautiful rose bush in a pot and buried him there. I also have bought 5 little cherubs and they sit in the pot. I still remember all my due dates and all my bubs would have been born in Spring/Summer and I just love it if a rose blooms around any of their due dates. What you do is up to you but just thought I would share what my husband and I did.

    Big hugs to your partner and you.
