@infinty888 I'm so sorry to hear your news. It's so unfair 😥 we are all thinking of u and sending u virtual hugs xxx It all is so frucked up.
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?
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.....
@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.
