Thanks @Maxwellsmum. I know some people are on multiple threads and it's hard to reply to all of them.
thanks, I hope so too. we're down as 'no contact preferred except in future if the child wants to'. so I'm not sure if that narrows our choices by a lot or if there's enough potential donors OK with that on there already. you've got to be in it to win it as they say, so all we can do now is try
sorry you're not feeling well @tuxcat (& thanks for posting on my ad so now it's off 0 replies). do you have endo? could that be part of the pain. I hope you feel better soon.
@winsor that would be my preference too if I was looking for a donor. My DH actually said he wouldn't mind being a SD if there was an option for complete anonymity (he wouldn't want any contact even after they were 18). Not that he would be accepted. After 2 cancers and various other conditions I think he would be in the "Thanks, but no thanks category".
i think it's the adenomyosis that's causes the pain, I had a lap in 2012 and they only found very minor endo and I've always had fairly significant AF pain so who knows!
tuxcat and keeps us sane on this rollercoaster (or at least as much as is possible). I'm 5DP5DT x 2 (with Pregnyl boosters).
Sorry you aren't feeling well. You cannot take something stronger? I find panadol useless and actively refuse it in hospital. You can buy Panadeine Extra OTC, but I've found with endo, Aden and IVF I need Endone for 2-3 days (FS or GP prescribe it - apparently not unusual for IVF ladies). I didn't need anything for AF pre IVF, but now even when I'm not cycling I get horrid cramps. If it's really bad or getting worse, I'd also mention it to your FS as that was the first step in my being diagnosed with Adenomyosis - I'd thought it was just the Endo. I hope it settles soon.
Yep, we need to keep an eye on our meds! You go girl!
Some people prefer it winsor and that includes donors one donor on known donors wants no contact or she did. She might have changed her mind. Mine let's us choose. She isn't worried either way we discussed it more as a siblings thing. She wants to have her own children one day plus there are 3 donor bubs already 2 in Malaysia and 1 in uterine in Thailand so for me it is more about my kids been able to meet their siblings when they are older. I told my donor I will send her a picture every now and then as well if we have success.
well it was nice of him to offer!
thanks @tuxcat and @Maxwellsmum. I guess we'll see how it goes. I had originally written minimal/no contact and DP changed it to none. if it was just a pic every xmas or something I'd prob be ok with that but I guess we'll see what happens if we get that far. that sounds nice having the kids all catch up. that might be nice in the future. I guess we're just not looking for a new close relationship with the donor, but who knows how it'll turn out once we meet them (if we find one)
oh very cute!
I'm cat sitting my sister's cat for a couple of weeks soon when they drive down from Cairns. am looking forward to it. haven't been able to have a pet due to all the travel for work, though now that's stopped I might be able to
