    @Lastchance75 hope you are holding up okay,

    AFM, DP won't engage in any conversation about what our next step will be except for wanting to see a new FS. No point really seeing another FS as we don't have another donor.
    So I'm deciding what to do all on my own and if need be ill just go ahead on my own. I had a look in the EDA site, jeez how depressing it's like a competition on who has the saddest story and is most deserving of someone's eggs. Don't think I can compete with the " my husband is dying" or " cancer treatments made me infertile" stories and it is so unpredictable on how long you could wait. So just tossing up between Greece or South Africa. There is no wait time for either and the costs are cheaper upfront than here.

    Have a nice Sunday everyone X

    I'm sorry your DP isn't being supportive or open to discussing the next step either Luv

    I'm sure the Lovelies here that have gone to either of those countries or any of the Girls on both of those threads will be able to answer any questions you might have in regards to going down the DE path via either of those routes

Being 43 I am hoping he has some good news for us and we can proceed with IVF! Has anyone else seen Dr Andy and had some good results? All I keep hearing about is how amazing Wazza is but his waiting list is way toooooo long!

    Welcome to the thread Luv!!!

    I can't say I've ever heard of Dr S but that doesn't mean he's not a good FS!!!

    Which FC (fertility clinic) is he with???

    Yes, Wazza's list is long, but that's because he specialises in older women and the difficult to treat cases I'm one of his graduates (after doing 3 Cycles with another FS I transferred over to Wazza)

    You can always ask to go on the "cancellation list" as well as often you'll get in a lot quicker that way (sometimes with only a couple of days notice of an appointment) or you can see the other FS/OB that works with him Charlotte (can't remember her last name) as Wazza is mentoring her so she works pretty much alongside him is my understanding and consults with him etc as well as implementing his protocols etc so is another option there if you need a second opinion at any stage.

    It sounds as though this will be your very first Cycle of IVF that you will be doing??

    and prayers being sent to the Universe for you that you get your good news tomorrow so that you get started on your IVf Cycle asap!!!

    Thank you so much for your well wishes. Dr Andy is with City Fertility group I think! It will be our first IVF experience. Needless to say I'm emotional, anxious and nervous! Wazza is in the same building so I am thinking if it doesn't go great tomorrow I can pop in on my way out and make an appt with Wazza. Would love any thoughts and advice about how to get my head around all of this! I just want to hear there is some kind of hope!

    @MrsRodgerDodger its understandable to feel all of those feelings would love to say it gets easier but unfortunately it doesn't you are just more aware of what to expect. That sounds like a plan to get yourself on Wazzas list as a back up plan as BIB said he does have a good reputation with difficult cases that's why we see him. The only advice I would give you is to take each step as it comes and deal with every step at a time. Good luck hun and hope you get some answers tomorrow x

    good luck @MrsRodgerDodger. I hope your appointment goes well

    sorry to hear your DP isn't being more helpful atm @MissDa. I guess one advantage of a local donor is your child should be able to contact them/find out basic info about them in the future.

    we went and met 'pudding' but it didn't go well. he was ok when he was in the cage but they let him out and he let us pat him for a bit then he just kept getting angry and biting so I had to say we'd think about it. there was also another person's name down as having interest in him - they didn't have my name even though I'd sent the webform and called during the week. he kept giving me cranky looks too.

    so we went to the cat protection society and found this little lady, Mandy. she's a lovely gently lady. 8yo. her previous owner went to a retirement home and they didn't accept cats (which I think is not very nice of them, really sad). she's settling in well tonight. her coat gets a striated/pixelated look to it so we might call her Pixel. (Mandy sometimes if she prefers). we love her little koala nose too.
