    @Blossom74 I think I agree, there's possibly just something about my first ED and I that just didn't jell, but I guess having a go with a new fresh egg donor with the same quality embryos is the only way I'll ever be able to measure that.
    I do very much like the idea of trying these 3 embryos from a new ED. I love the idea of full siblings in the same town.
    My embryo donor has super kindly also offered me her remaining vial of sperm in CT. So if I do a fresh cycle I could create half siblings, yay! The SD is also the same colouring as my son & I, bonus.
    I forgot to mention, I was generously offered donor embryos a month ago but their gradings were so poor they shouldn't have been frozen. The wonderful embryo donor, her FS and the CFC embryologist agreed. There were 3 x 1CC (shouldn't have been frozen) and 1 x 2AB. They're not at CFC and it was such a waste to let them go.
    Re a fresh cycle, I've just found out my 1st preference ED has low AMH and my 2nd preference reacted badly to her first cycle. Both have been removed from the ED program & didn't donate. This means the unproven 18 y/o twin & one of the BHers ED are still in the running!

    @winsor I think there's going to be a stack of things like that that will be different for a donor conceived child. Its probably worth writing it all down and speaking to a counsellor about it. We've been talking a bit about the things we need to consider in regards to all this too, I just need to get through this last cycle first but its good you're thinking about these little things. The world has changed a lot since we were at high school and there are loads of different kinds of families even now so I'd say by the time they're in high school it will be even more diverse. If you're open with the child from the beginning then I think it normalises it all, of course not everyone has to know but I guess the more secretive this stuff stays the trickier things are.

    I'd just start making list of your concerns/questions and then when it comes time to see the counsellor you can get their perspective on things. Might be worthwhile doing some reading online into this kind of stuff too, Im sure theres loads of info out there.

    @BlondeinBrisvegas It's not that I don't want to do a full fresh cycle. I'm really happy to do one. It's just that I love the idea of full siblings near by. Even half siblings would be amazing. It's interesting what's become more important the second time round.
    @ECM1981 When you begged Dr W to transfer your 3 embryos did he mention anything about their policy on transferring 3?
    @Charlie74 Huge hugs hun. It was always going to be challenging wasn't it. A double edged sword. I really feel for you. Big love.
    @faithandhopellove I can't wait too hear how @Vixjc gets on with triple grade A transfer.

    thanks, yes making a list. when I spoke to the rpa counsellor I mentioned some of these things and she said it was good to be reflecting on possible future issues now too. thanks for your thoughts xx

    @Tahli no he didnt really. He did say not to blame him if they all took and i ended up with triplets. I think because the 3rd little one that i begged him to transfer didnt look that good to him he didnt have a problem transfering it. He probably knew it would most likely not take. Are all you 3 frozen together?

    @ECM1981 Ta, so he didn't recite some CFC policy or SA law about only transferring 2. I thought he'd be ok with it as long as you were discrete. Yep, all 3 are frozen together so I think it will be a case of just thawing them and transferring regardless of what they look like. In the 2 hours they usually allocate for thawing they're not going to morph into hatching blasts so I think it'll be an easy decision. A Zen decision!!

    Then have a crack with all 3 donor embies & buy yourself some more time to find another ED/SD if needs be😊

    @Tahli Well, he was a B2 on day 5. If they'd grown him out to day 6 then presumably he would have reached a higher grade. I've heard of early blastocysts resulting in a pregnancy, I think it's when you're talking about morulas that it gets really sketchy.

    The embryologist at Genea told me they don't freeze any blastocysts that haven't reached expanded blast by day 6 so I always assumed anything frozen must be pretty good but obviously other clinics are different. It's not terribly straightforward is it?

    Hi ladies. @Tahli fwiw i think a zen cycle with a thaw all 3 and see what happens approach sounds perfect. Follow up new DE fresh cycle from your twin if you need to.

    @winsor it would be so difficult to think of all future issues that may or may not pop up. I really think with great parents it wont be a problem as you will work through them as a family unit as they arise. Kids need unconditional love as you know to get through life no matter what it is they face. If they have support it will all be ok in the end. If its not ok then its not the end. Jmo fwiw.

    thanks @infinity888. yes, true. sometimes I wonder if I'm just going through the scenarios in my head to prepare, or to delay/postpone it all. slowly processing it all I guess. I hope your distractions are going well this w/e xx
