Apparently, a week after I booked everything, the donor has a new job and needs to attend a conference that falls right across our treatment dates.

    I'm furious. Changing the dates will cost us more than $1,000 in cancellation / booking change fees (flights, accommodation, car etc).

    The other option the clinic and agency have presented is that we should try to find, screen etc a new donor with a month to go until the cycle starts. This doesn't seem very feasible to me.

    Has anyone else been in this situation? What did you do? I seem to recall someone in this thread had this happen a while ago.
    Ughh. They really should compensate you for ****ing you around so much.

    Big congratulations @ferngirl she is gorgeous. You must be so happy!

    I agree, it so easy to get caught up in what can go wrong. I get it, it's frustrating dealing with a clinic in a different time zone and having a lot of elements out of your control in this process ( such as donors changing their dates) sometimes you've just got to go with it as hard as that is (trust me I'm a control freak).

    I had successful and failed cycles with CFC so feel that I'm pretty objective.

    I've always said in this process there's one point where you feel so anxious, frustrated and a loss of control and trust me on every one of my cycles I've felt this...the time lines are tight, you can't book flights/accommodation until about 2 weeks before going (you'll hear of one unicorn cycle where someone got their treatment plan 3 months ahead if time and think that will be you too, but most likely it won't be)..and then there's just the general pressure of cycling/being on meds, but you get through it. As Ferngirl said, keep your eye on the prize girls, I know I am! CFC are a good clinic, they are flat out too... but I've had no doubt that every time I have cycled they have bent over backwards to get me a transfer and I've seen them go above and beyond to help others.

    I second what @emski72 has explained. I've actually been a day or two into my FETs before receiving my treatment plans. On the first one I freaked out and the girls on here helped me to know what to do. On the following ones you know what to take so it stressed me a lot less. Also on my fresh cycle I'd arrived in CT before I knew if any of my eggs had actually fertilised.
    But I do have to say, since Dr W left, things aren't as they were. I presume they're finding their feet and need another FS or two to keep up with demand.

    What beautiful bubbas on this thread @JulieMalooley and @ferngirl.
    I do remember having an absolute freakout with each cycle. I just get soooooo frustrated that it has to be that way, us running around like chooks with our heads cut off and getting guidance on sites like this or having to find out ourselves to know what to do. I just imagine those people that perhaps aren't as assertive, confident or capable of advocating for themselves and sorting their own treatment - what happens to them???
    Anyway, time to be positive for me!!!!! I just got myself a lovely new gyno/obs and am feeling reassured about that : )

    I believe they do but can't recall what it is as it was back in 2013 that I looked at those details. They do match you to a donor based on your photos - at least Serum did, some of the others can be a bit hit and miss I think.

    Sorry for jumping in on the thread but just wanted to congratulate @JulieMalooley and @ferngirl @ECM1981 when I went to Greece I was asked to send over a couple of photos of myself etc, was asked to do the same in Czech and give my donor requirements etc also Czech have a limit of 2 donations or 3 if they have a child already, although the clinic is allowed to approach the donor if she has reached that limit and you want a sibling
