    @Tahli - Oh no hun hope you find it, definitely ring the bt place and double check its worth a try.

    Oh gosh I definitely could not not imagine having a baby in my 60's and him in his 70's for one I can't imagine the childhood that poor child will have plus having to deal with ageing parents with illnesses such early on jn life. I couldn't imagine my mum and dad dealing with that now, mind you they are too busy with life since there retirement haha! Don't get me wrong here I am all for older parents but there has to be a limit for child's sake.

    Im curious to know what bodgy country she went to, where a FS would be allowed to do ivf on a 63 year old. @Tahli i hope you find your earing too. Its awful when you lose your best jewellery.
    So i was telling dh about snakes n the foxtel box n fires n everything else. I had to laugh, at first he got really angry "aargh thats frucked" "thats so unfair" etc etc Then he got all pensive and said, "with luck like that, you and your lady friends really should start buying lotto tickets".

    Hopefully it won't be too long for you to wait then @pingc383 it definately could be worse. From what I can gather too from what I have heard its not just about cancelations. If warren finds himself with some free time such as no procedures for the day he will fill it at late notice with last minute appointments off this list.

    You bring up a very good point there @Charlie74 I wonder where they have got the information from hoping its not family and friends that have commented to the media.

    Haha no I don't think he likes free time that's why he fills it with more appointments haha! He is one very dedicated man working from 5am to very late 6 days a week and then he has crazy ladies like me contacting him on Sunday afternoon stressing about injections haha! He had a women in at 9pm the other Saturday he told me as he didn't like the look of her bloods and he had just returned from holiday that day.

    @winsor congrats on finding a donor
    @Heyside I know you're disappointed but your egg numbers sound great to me!, I had only 5 mature eggs - 3 of those fertilized and I got a bfp from that cycle.

    I saw this on the news this morning, and I made a point of watching The Mixed Grill on 9's morning show to hear more about it. I must say, I feel incredibly conflicted about it to be honest.

    On one hand, there is the overwhelming automatic response that "They are too old, who will look after the child when they are no longer able to?" But on the other hand? This is what concerns me....

    Yes, it goes against the 'natural order' of things. But many of us ARE going against the natural order here. My husband had a vasectomy 15 years ago. If I was relying on nature, the chance of me having a baby would be nothing but a pipe dream.

    Secondly, is it appropriate to consider this couple (whom for all intents and purposes, I presume are in a committed, loving relationship) to be poor examples of parents simply because of their age? There are many people who knowingly bring children into turbulent, poverty-stricken, drug-affected, alcoholic, and domestically violent relationships. Do these parents fall into that same category purely because of their age? They are still capable of loving their children. And one would think that they have considered the risks involved and have a contingency plan in place to look after them once they are gone...

    The thing that really concerns me though is this. We are an online support group for over 40's here. We all know the pain of not being able to have a child. What would WE do if this woman came to our group seeking support? Would we recognise the pain she suffers because it took her THIS LONG to have a baby of her own? Would we sympathise with the fact that she understands first hand the emotional toll and the physical damage IVF can cause? Or do we sweep the fact that this woman may have had multiple miscarriages in the years prior to her successful IVF cycle under the carpet, and simply say "I'm sorry...you're too old to join us."

    This is a woman who is holding her first baby ever in her arms! She is scared, and excited, and worried just as we all would be! And for all intents and purposes, she is now judged every day for the rest of her life for wanting...a baby.

    I don't know. Let he without sin be the first to cast a stone, you know? There are lovely ladies in this group whom I know for a fact are slightly older than the average of what - 45? Wonderful, supportive women who just want the same as what we do - a baby to love.

    I don't think this is a simple black or white situation to be honest.

    (And like our dear @BIB, I apologise if my views are not popular!)
