    Excellent idea, and just what I would do. In fact, that's how our whole IVF journey has been. I make the decisions, I schedule it all in, I give DH 2 weeks notice if he needs to do something or be somewhere, and he just falls into line and co-operates

    No reason the same thing can't work for you

    @Tahli, just wondering...

    Is it possible for you to approach the bank and borrow against what will eventually be your settlement sum?

    today a lovely possible donor contacted me!! I won't go in to details but I feel so excited, early days but it's our first one and she sounds like a great match in lots of ways which is nice. It made my afternoon!

    Stay positive @Blossom74 you'll find someone!

    @Summer yes, I do the same as @Blossom74 with DP. I let him know things but stress the dates he has to do his bits.

    great news @tuxcat! fingers crossed you won't need her as your OE cycle will work out, but great to have a backup in place

    good luck tomorror @infinity888. I hope it's not too painful for you
    @Tahli, I like Blossom's idea at the bank too. otherwise, I'm sure they can wait a little while longer, right? it would just move the cycle out a bit wouldn't it? or is it really early prep so cycle dates wouldn't change

    Great news @tuxcat that's gotta make your day for sure!
    @Tahli is pestering your ex a method that worked in the past to get something done quickly?
    @Blossom74 I hope the cleaning is not astronomical for you. To come home to that must truly be annoying. Is he beyond teaching new home skills?? I'm lucky in that my dp whom I've only been with for two years does the majority of the house work. And I'm not complaining 😀😀😀.

    Hello @Charlie74 glad to hear your dad is getting some assistance and hope there's a positive result from all of it. I also hope you're ok xx

    @bib how are things going in your home. Has the ex dh found another place yet? Sorry if you've said and I missed it. When do you start the counselling? Hope you're doing ok too in a stressful situation.

    Afm I've convinced myself I have silent endo so although I wish to be healthy (I really do) I honestly pray that on the 12/04 the lap reveals silent endo and it is removed creating me a shiny and new uterus that is screaming out for an embie to implant. Am I insane? If nothing is wrong with my oven then it's my sad old tired eggs and that can't be fixed 😣.
