@Summer the “outing” me part I struggled with too on EDA. Myself and DH both have a web presence for our careers (we’re not famous by any stretch!!) but it seemed tricky. Knowing what I know now, I know that you don’t have to share anything more on there than the basics, you can be under a similar anonymity as you are on BH really. you also don’t need to go to meet ups. So it might be worth while putting an ad up, people can pm you and your username can be anything. You can just use your first names or just use yours and refer to your partner, you don’t have to share much really. As @Bongley has been saying there are a few donors on the FB page (Im not on this either as my business is linked to mine and I don’t want to share all that) who would like to be anonymous but are struggling to find recipients apparently! So clearly the donors are lurking and sussing out people all the time, it can feel like there are hardly any around though but I guess its probably just a matter of time. Some people have found a donor in a couple of weeks, so it can happen! Oh and btw we have not mentioned our surnames at any stage on there either so you would have to be pretty lucky to trace us back to there. In the end I got over it and thought well so what if people knew, we wouldn’t be hiding that info from the child and people can say what they like, WTF cares!!
Great news @faithandhopellove
@Blossom ive often thought about writing a book as well but then i think who would buy it ? oh and i cant write either so just a small problem. Haha so im studying my masters instead. You're a very articulate writter though and i think you have a fabulous sense of humor.
@Bib i am glad you have sorted out your living situation its difficult even with the best intentions to be living with someone you would rather not.
@winsor give it some more time luv its very early. I'm sure the right donor will appear when the time is right. Gracie will show her the way
@faithandhopellove well done big bubba and mummy thats great growth.
Afm the drugs must of worked a treat as it was only uncomfortable. Alot less pain then epu without GA. So im resting up. @BlondeinBrisvegas and @Tahli thanks so much you both really helped. My cycle should start in a wk's time. Its time for some bfp's in here and im happy to lead the way. Also a huge shout out to wazza what a great man. Legend. He really is the bomb.
Oh I'm so pleased it wasn't too much of an ordeal for you.
No pressure everyone, but I think all the invasive painful crap should be out of the way by now. Time to knuckle down and sort out new stim cycles, find donors, and give birth to lots of happy chubby babies please!
I am having severe stick withdrawals here and it's about bl00dy time we had a run of BFP's, thank you!
@tuxcat thanks for that info - the privacy thing with having online businesses and it being linked to FB etc is something that really bothered me, so it's good to know that I could go on to EDA and be quite anonymous if I wanted to. I wouldn't put up photo's either though, so I'm not sure what type of response I'd get if I wasn't willing to go that far... Anyway, I'll see about my friend first and then talk to DH about whether he would want to try EDA or just go to SA.
@Summer im sorry to hear this lovely. One of my previous fs who has an excellent reputation and came highly recommended for his bedside manner i found to be a condescending jerk. I did 3 cycles and a hysteroscopy with him and hated every minute but i stayed because I thought its my fault. Haha i regret this. I think its impossible to get along with everyone so even though I think wazza is lovely i imagine there would be a few that dont. I read elsewhere about this to. Your not alone but for me so far he is amazing 😀
Also im so happy to hear you and dh are so close and united again its lovely to feel that peace isnt it xx
Thanks @infinity888 I reallly like Wazza I loved his sense of humour and DH thought he was awesome. He actually assisted Wazza with my internal and thought that qualified him as a gyno, LOL - it was beyond hilarious! My problem was that Wazza appeared to have very little interest in me at all, never once remembered my name or what I was there for even if I was there two days prior, and it felt like he had no investment in me getting a result at all, which seems very different from what most girls say, as most say that he does everything possible to get them over the line... And then when I got sick no-one in their clinic really believed me about how sick I was and in the end I had to make the decision to stop my cycles myself or I don't think I would be here. There was no follow up, no suggestions of doing something different, just hammering me with masses of drugs that nearly killed me. Anyway.... everyone's experience is different and as you've said, different people will work better with different doctors.
