    @BlondeinBrisvegas it went well, and just highlights all the issues that you have to think about with a donor, she was very experienced and had some examples of things that have arisen in the past so it was great to hear about the broad range of stuff that needs to be considered. It really emphasises the importance of a good fit with your donor I think. There's three sessions all up, next one is donor and her hubby and then it's all of us. It's also a way of informing everyone of the legalities around it all

    How are things with ex-dp? Have you guys agreed to do any counselling yourselves? Or are you ready to put the whole thing to bed?

    I was thinking to get my donor a gift pack of Australian made beeswax beauty products. What do you think?

    Sorry you're feeling so crappy hon. Take care of you

    By the way, I think that is a lovely gift for your donor, she will love it!

    They are all Pgd tested normal embryos. But then so were the 4 that we put back and didn't work. Honestly the chances of me having multiples is slim.

    @Lastchance75 - I think I would consider doing the same if your fs is willing. What reason if any have you been given that those pgd in the past may have not worked or is it just down to luck?

    Aaaah...thanks for explaining that Luv. I do find it all very interesting from my side of the fence

    Things are going ok with the Ex (most of the time). He's having counselling which is good and it's something I hope he will continue with as there is some kind of Medicare scheme where he can get further sessions (10 I think under the scheme) for free?? I've told him to ask his Psychologist about them and to get her to apply for them through Medicare

    As far as he and I go..I'm done Luv and always was. There was never any going back for me. The counselling was ultimately going to be for the benefit of DD so we could Co=Parent her to the best of our abilities as possible under the circumstances. Him having counselling means there's been no need for us both to have it IYKWIM??? as it was him that was having the issues with accepting what was happening and coping with the separation etc.

    He still has his moments of behaving like an immature a r s e hat which is frustrating but I'm hoping the fact he's just begun to dip his toe into the dating pool again (he's been on 2 dates with this lady who lives just around the corner from my place FFS's!!!) might help him to resolve his feelings of anger/hurt etc towards me that he still has for ending the relationship and he might start to move forward and act more like the grown up he's meant to be!!!

    Hi @Heyside the first transfer was apparently "bad luck" not sure yet what their response is for the second one. I have an appointment with the Dr from Hawaii on Friday and one with Dr M so will see what they both have to say.

    All the more reason for Dr M to throw everything he's got at you Luv IMO

    @Lastchance75 - Its so so gard when it comes down to luck, thats the stage we are also at, would love there to be a clear reason why things are going wrong so we could address it 😳. Hope the dctrs have some idea of where you go from here to make things work for you. I wonder how many times we keep going like this putting pgd normals back with no result.
    @BlondeinBrisvegas - Sounds like you are dealing with a lot for yiur ex hun hope the counseling helps him for your DD's sake, thinking of you xx

    @BlondeinBrisvegas glad to hear things are moving forward and the counselling seems to be helping. The new date my just be the interim relationship before really moving on,bloody typical she's just around the corner!! At least you were the one who wanted out!
    @Lastchance75 it's really bloody deflating when this happens with donor eggs, juliemalooley had lots of failed transfers too and they never seemed to be able to figure out why. It's a good idea to throw everything at it, it's such a bloody expensive endeavour too, I hope you get some answers from one of them. Have you had a lap done before just to check everything is good in your oven?

    Yeah had a Lap done about a year ago and had a hysterscopy and endo scratch done just before last transfer plus intralipids. Not sure there is anything more I can do really.
