I know I haven't got to epu yet but it just feels like its gonna go down hill from here. Anyway, its a nice article and once Im through this cycle i will be excited again, I know it.

    thanks for posting.

    How are you going with the pregnancy?
    @tuxcat good thanks! The DE aspect is still on my mind with the new bub but as the pregnancy progresses normally and all the other stuff happens (tiredness,big belly, movement, appointments, parental leave arrangements etc) its becoming less front and center I guess as everything else is just...... normal. I saw a picture of my donor as a baby and I wondered if he'd look like her and it didn't even really bother me anymore. I'm more interested in who we're going to meet rather than grieving what we/I couldn't make.

    When do you think EPU will be?

    I reckon it will be thursday which worries me regarding not being able to transfer at day 3 if there is only the one. I suppose if it doesnt make it to day 5 then it won't work anyway but its just the mental aspect of not getting to transfer. Anyhoo Im getting ahead of myself and its not even the TWW yet

    Ive been having thoughts of cancelling the cycle and going again in another month but then I think just do this and move on. Will see how things go over the next few days. Haven't mentioned it to DH yet either so I dunno. Why cant anything just go to plan in all this

    @tuxcat When is your next scan? It'd be nice to go out on a good cycle but then I don't know if it might tempt you to do another? My last OE cycle was a cracker, best embryo by far put back on day 5 (expanding) and it still didn't blumin work. Think that broke me a bit but DE plans were in motion by then.....

    Monday. my oestrogen is 468 yesterday so its crap! And yeah I think I could just keep going and going thinking that the next cycle if we just did this etc.. so you have to draw the line somewhere and I do feel like its time to move on. I also don't want to lose the PD we have so if I keep pushing things out then that could potentially happen. She's basically suggested all along that she's on board so Im guessing that as soon as we are ready to go ahead there then she will be ready. And at the end of the day Im sick of this hard basket and waiting waiting sh!te!!

    @Bongley I also really love your honesty about your feelings as the pregnancy is progressing as I think its important to hear for all of us contemplating or going down that path. Sorry I didn't even respond to your stuff (too wrapped up in my own issues!!). Ive been taking a bit more notice of kids and their mothers lately and seeing if they look alike, and you realise that so many don't. The important stuff is how you can influence your child through your relationships with each other and the things you do with them, and teach them, the personality traits and looks are something you cant have any influence over even with your own eggs.
