    thanks so much @Precious40 thats a great story. Im really hoping (trying not to get my hopes up!! yeh like thats working) that this lady we are chatting to will be our donor, she's someone that both of us feel is a person we would be friends with if we had met in life.. She seems to think in similar ways to myself and I nearly cried when I read her most current email, out of WOW she's the perfect person for this. Its made me realise just how amazing these women are who would do such a thing, what an amazing gift for someone. Makes me teary!!

    We are going to our first meet up this sunday, initially the idea of going to a meet up wasn't great, but the more Ive been on the forum I feel like its actually nice to have a community of people who are doing the same thing. It makes it feel less weird I suppose. You realise that actually theres tons of people out there who have gone through similar or worse and who are embracing the option too. Its nice. I don't know if that helps the undecided ladies in here any? Just to know that even though its total foreign and puts you out of your comfort zone, it can actually end up being a good experience. And there ain't much in this frucked up world of infertility that you can say that about. Lets just hope we have a baby or 2 at the end of it all, one way or another.

    @faith. Thanks for the roll call. AF is due any day now. I can feel her. Eekkkk. She's only five days early. Noooo. OR Yessss ???


    And
    Great news on seeing big bubba. I'm glad he/she?? Is very active. I'm sure seeing the gymnast at play was a sight for sore eyes xxx
    that part made me tear up xx

    I'll be there too, my donor always goes along to these things so its good to catch up with her this way. I'll be the one staring longingly at the wine and beer. Finally I'll meet a bub hubber in real life!

    I remember my first meet up, it's a weird experience of feeling awkward and sheepish, (like you are going along hat in hand...please give me your eggs!) and also being really touched by seeing donors with their recipients with babies, bumps or cycling..........

    Yes hon, I've texted @Tahli a couple of times now but have not had a response. That's ok though. Sometimes we just need to take a little step back so we can evaluate where we are at in life, and to be able to find a way forward. I reckon our @Tahli is probably checking in and reading all of our posts and getting the support she needs, but is perhaps just not in the right place to be commenting at the moment. I have no doubt she knows how much we care for her and that she will come back to us just as soon as she is able to
