    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.

    that's true tuxcat. the first time I looked at the DE sites in SA when initially considering our options I got upset that none looked like me - apart from one who looked like my sister & niece (but she smoked). but then I remembered that I look like my Dad, nothing like Mum. so it's not the important thing (& was prob me being selfish/my hangups - I've never even liked my looks that much whilst growing up so not looking like me is prob a bonus anyway)

    RE donor and looks - All I have to do is look at my own family. None of us look alike. My mum is short and thin I am tall and solid like my dad. My donor looks nothing like me but a lot like my cousin. I didn't select based on any looks just health and personality and proven. One big thing that swayed me was my donor is a huge animal lover she actually volunteers at her local shelter. I too am a huge animal lover.
    @Bongley I liked that blog thanks for sharing.

    Thats great. The things I love about our PD are that she's someone we would be friends with if we had met in life. I guess the way she views the world and her interests etc are in line with mine so I feel like thats so amazing! DH really likes her too. Looks wise we have a similar stature, height and build wise but we certainly weren't looking for a type. I am just so wrapt that we found someone who we really gel with in so many ways. Hence why I don't want to lose her!!!
    @winsor its funny how theres things we don't like about our own looks yet its one of the first things you think of when you aren't going to use your own eggs! At the end of the day that child will be all the things you pour into it and thats the case however they've come into the world

    yes, the more I've been thinking about it all the more I realise that the things I want to pass on aren't genetic so hopefully we get the chance to bring up the child and teach them things and make them curious of the world and love learning & be a good person

    Another interesting thing was my donor showed me photos of her previously donation (twins) and I was blown away they looked more like me than her. They actually looked nothing like her or their dad. Both boys were blonde, fair and brown eyed. Very chubby and solid build all my traits. It shows you really could end up with anything. I agree it is good to like your donor as well I get on well with mine. She could be almost a cousin or distant relative. When I met her she was easy to be around, easy to talk too and no awkward moments.
