    @Rhino
    For me deciding to use DE was a no-brainer, I had 3 cycles with my own eggs
    Cycle 1- 1 to transfer no frozen bfn
    Cycle 2 0 fert
    Cycle 3 cancelled - no response
    Statistically we had a less than 5% chance of a "live birth"
    I had a friend offer her eggs so decision made, unfortunately hasn't been a great outcome, so my only advice is "if" you use a donor choosing someone who has donated before and produced good quality eggs would be the priority.

    Not sure what's next for me, guess I'll know in a few days, but my next option would probably be Greece but hopefully neither of us will have to book that flight

    Exactly @BlondeinBrisvegas...do I go and do the TET and then draw the line?
    It's amazing how much of a wake up call having the puppy has been! Yes I know he's an animal rather than a human but the extra work, lack of sleep, etc has all been a reminder of the early years with a wee babe.
    I thought DS was starting primary school next year but we had an interview with his kinder teacher yesterday and because he's a Jan baby we've decided to hold him back a year so he'll start prep the month he turns 6 instead. It should give him a level playing field with his peers rather than being the kid always trying to catch up. This means I'll be a stay at home mum for an extra year which feeds into my decision as to whether to do another ttc round or not.
    Thats an extremely powerful question...do I want to be a mum again.
    Hugs to you for 'getting it'.

    Thanks everyone for your support! @MissDa I don't know that we get any info about our donors in Greece - we don't get to chose them - the doctor does that. I did ask a question about the donor and if I could get any info about her but Dr Nikos never answered that question... and I forgot to ask again at the time we spoke...

    @Tahli I hope your body get a break and that you find it easier to make a decision that's best for you over the next couple of months!

    I keep changing my mind all the time too! Last week had everything organised to be in Greece end Aug - but big freak out/melt down/lots of tears soon followed and I justcouldn't let go of last OE cycle (I didn't start taking the Pill) - so we've delayed one cycle so it'll be Sept in Greece for us (if Dr K agrees). I have one more chance and final month to really deal with letting go of OE! Part of me already thinks I've made a bad decision and am wasting another month where we could be closer to a BFP in Greece! AHHHH
    @Rhino I think it gets to a tipping point and each BFN got harder and harder for me. I think I could have done one more OE cycle, (especially as it had worked for me in the past) but the lure of a 'sure thing' (which of course it isn't!) eventually pulled me over to the DE route and @Tahli I totally, totally understand where you are coming from, my son's age was a factor in doing DE sooner than later, he will be nearly 4 when this little guy arrives in sept.

    I don't regret not trying once or twice more with my OE but there is a little voice wondering if we would have been successful or not. I expect that will go completely when my little guy is born and we all bond with him. I certainly felt like I'd given it a red hot go at 7 cycles. Then again, I was at a cheap clinic where each cycle wasn't breaking the bank........

    @Tahli yes he is thanks. I've taken to calling him 'the new kid' which my in-laws thought was a bit odd

    @Bongley The New Kid sounds brilliant! I love it!!
    I thought you'd get it. All last year while I was doing mostly back to back cycles DS was 4 and that was a totally different kettle of fish. Now I have this 'bigger boy' who is growing in independence by the day and I love how impulsive we can be with our lives now.
    Anyway I won't take up anymore thread space on me trying to figure out what to do next. There's POAS action going on!!
