    @Charlie74 my AF after I turned 40 was 3 days of moderate and 2 days of spotting. My lining was always around the 9mm mark at the last scan before transfer.

These eggs would have never had a chance of developing into a life at all unless a beautiful soul had a longing to be a mumma. The DE Bubba's, so deliberately planned and fought for, have to belong to the one who longed for them. Genetics has nothing to do with it.
    Yes. Without our very persistence and sheer will these kids wouldn't be here. Seems more committed than forgetting to use a condom.

    This reminds me when I was talking this stuff through with my counselor she was very reluctant to say 'genetic mother' preferring just 'donor' or 'egg donor' with 'mother' firmly being the woman who raises the child. But when referring to siblings she was quite happy to say 'genetic siblings' I guess that is different to brother or sister. It's all so confusing! Mind you, I think my donor would be horrified to be labelled 'mother' anything, she's admitted she's not terribly maternal.

When you read the posts on here and other threads you certainly realise that people's emotional investment is just the same doing DE cycles. It is definitely not someone else's baby when a second line appears on a POAS or a HCG fails to rise.
    As you said @tuxcat I think there is definitely a benefit to getting the DE stories known and I hope people who are silently reading along and maybe considering DE get the feeling that this option is not second class or in anyway shameful. However I also realise that DE Mumma's are also trailblasers in some sense (it's been around for awhile but is still rare) and not everyone has the emotional strength to face negative reactions. I think this thread has been very supportive of everyone no matter what they decide in relation to tell/ don't tell. So while I would love the wider world to know that DE is just another beautiful way of creating a family I completely understand and support those who don't want to talk openly about it.
    I hope everybody feels free to talk about it here if you can't elsewhere. This is the safest space I have seen so far for all things TTC (I have seen other threads implode on issues like this). From what I read and the support given here I think that will definitely continue.
    It's definitely nothing to hide and I have no problem talking about it. In fact my two little DE's measured in today at 2 and 2.1kg each at 32w4d. Got two nice profile shots and they look almost exactly alike - but yep, still a boy and girl These two fiesty little kicking machines wouldn't be here without a.)the BH forums opening my eyes to DE options, b) a very generous CT donor c) asking the right questions (eventually) of the right doctors and d) lots of determination. I can't say for sure, but I suspect it wouldn't feel any different if they were my OE babies - although in that case there would more than likely only be one of them - so bonus ! I can't recommend DE strongly enough for those that are running out of options.

    @Aimee999 fabulous news on your golden lovely. Fx for a smooth transfer. Is it day3 or day5 transfer or are you hoping to pgd. As for your mum its tough when who is supposed to be your greatest allies becomes your weakest link. Like @greenlady said sometimes you learn what not to do. My mother and I live close in location but i see her maybe 3 times a yr at best. Very different people. Always have been. My mil who is stauch catholic and is funny about ivf comes over 4 months ago to tell me all about immune protocols including intralipids that she had researched and offered to pay bless her. Definitely wasnt expecting that. We are here to support you whenever you need. Good luck.
    @Tinachris thanx for the ginger tip my symptoms have lessoned all by themselves now. Not sure if this is good or bad. Im having a E2 and P4 level bt on monday so i guess ill know then. I hope you're feeling ok today @Blossom74 how exciting to you. Very deserving of a quick pd. @Charlie74 i got af at 9yo yep super frigging early. Always heavy day 2 to 7 then d I sappear for 2days then return for 3. Post 35 af for 3days go away for 2 return for 3 spotting last 2 days really. Post ivf its about the 3 to 5 days moderate flow and spotting. My lining is always great. Even post scratch and flush which caused quite heavy to moderate flow for 7days then light spotting for 3days and lining was 10mm at trigger day. Hope this helps. @Summer where are you lovely. Are you ok? What did fs say. Thinking of you.

    OK, I'm calming the farm now! After the rush of getting ad approval, posting it up, and dealing with the excitement of it all, I think I'm ok!

    It was funny, after weeks of nothing all of a sudden I was on full-tilt with it!

    Can't wait for the next exciting step I'm starting to feel like this may actually happen for us....

    @infinity888 yes mine have settled down too. I have another pregnyl booster due tonight so expecting side affects to start up again following that. What's the blood test for? Does it tell you earlier than tww? I don't know what to do really, mines due on the Monday May Day holiday, so if I wait till Tuesday to get it I'll be out of progesterone and crinone by a day. Don't want to buy it all preempting something then it's a negative and I've just bought all that. Do u reckon they'd let me do a Friday blood test or too early?

    I'm trying to gauge whether these Trental tablets are having any impact yet on my lining.. AF started Monday, and so far I've had 3 days of good to moderate AF I'd say. Today is day 4 and it's all but gone. It may reappear tomoro day 5 for just a day very lightly. That tends to happen.

    When I was younger AF used to be over about 6 days. It would start, be pretty heavy, then disappear around day 3-4, then come back for 2 days.

    Does anyone mind sharing what their AF is like duration & quantity wise??? I'm just trying to figure out what is normal (ie for a good lining).
    when I was young I'd get light day1 (full bleed), heavy day2-3, then mid-tapering off to spotting day 4-7 (sometimes it'd be this over 5-6days but usually spread out over 7 with day7 being spotting/very light to finish up)

    these days I get spotting 1-2days prior, then light-mid day1 (full bleed), heavy day2-3, mid day 4, then it's doing like yours - either spotting for day5 and coming back mid-light days 6-7 (where 7 is spotting/very light as it finishes)

    so it's changed since I was younger but still consistent in the new-mode now if that makes sense
