    Fair enough hun. I understand. (And my calculations were out on how many days you'd lose out on - sorry about that).
    So the next practical question is how you can not only protect YOUR own sanity but how you can get YOUR baby. I'm guessing the court process for DSS is going to take awhile now, or will a judge this week grant the Parenting Order?
    Can DH release equity from one of his/your properties to keep your DE journey going?

    All good sweetie. We have court in two weeks, so it should be finalised then, but following that we will have to initiate a costs case to claim the funds back and I'm not sure how long that will take. DH and I will have to discuss what happens with the $ side of things for DE, there will be a way, it just won't be as straightforward as it was going to be.

    So yes, we can possibly draw some funds from a property, or maybe my business will kick on and I'll have the funds, or DH will sell his business, or just draw the funds out of his business... We will do it (if worst comes to worst I have a clear credit card that I could put it on), so it will happen, but now it just means more stress and juggling rather than being relatively easy.

    And if DH spends this money on court, then even though he's on board with DE, it just puts me in a more awkward position wanting to spend another $20K straight after spending $30+ in court. Just when all was settled and looking good, I just didn't need this pressure. DH might be fine, but I don't want to be back where we were a few months ago

    ETA: She is not taking away my opportunity to have a child. Mumma Bear is on the warpath - NOTHING and NOONE will get in the way of us creating our family

    Understood. So the (messy) end is in sight. Yay. I can't wait for you to get to the day when it's all more straight-forward. God knows you deserve it.
    Where's she getting her money from to pay for all her legal costs?
    I know I want to settle with my ex asap as the hourly rate for my solicitor is extortionate!!

    Yes, not long now, it's just that after the weekend's discussion between her and DH where they agreed to finalise things, I thought it was all wrapped up today.... She would be drawing money out of her house, her first husband had a huge compo payout so she either owns her house or doesn't owe much on it, so can drawdown on the mortgage, we assume that's where the money is coming from.

    Our lawyer is $500 per hour, it adds up very, very quickly

    So she does have a significant pool of funds to draw from. I see. She must know she could only push your DH so far before he snapped. So April is going to be an interesting month. Well at least by the end of the month a judge will have come to a conclusion for you and you and DH can breath a little. Then it's on to addressing the costs.
    And at the same time your CT ED is producing gorgeous eggs for another woman and you can benefit from her experience. You're moving forward.
    Yep, mine is $500 p/h too. Ouch!!

    I'm thinking final stage pushing would be great for Marilyn Manson @Chiefsgirl!!
    I hope you can get some rest tonight hun. You must be so uncomfortable yet so excited.
    How amazing to think by this time tomorrow you'll be putting those cookies to good use. Happy days!
    Wishing you a wonderfully positive birthing experience and enjoy your first precious cuddles with your much longed for baby girl. We look forward to seeing a pic when you're ready. Huge hugs, xx.

    @Caesardust sorry they found something, but glad they found something - if that makes sense! Hopefully this is the missing piece of the puzzle that has been stopping you getting your bfp!
