@Maxwellsmum you forgot me in your shout out! Hope you are going okay
@Tahli good luck with your lining scan today And yes, I reckon a TET has the best chance of producing twins! @Caesardust and @Charlie74 how are you feeling @pingc383 do you have an apt lined up yet or are you on waiting lists, sorry, I can't remember
@Bib I think that's very commendable that you made a cake for your ex, you're a far better person that I would be in that situation...or did you lace it with rat poison (sorry, couldn't resist!)
Hi @tuxcat @winsor @Rhino @Summer @mitnite1 @maxwells mums @greenlady how are you? @Billie2 hope you are okay, have been thinking of you
@faithhopellove hope today goes as well as it can. I think what are doing for lil bubba sounds lovely. I hope you can take some peace from it
@Blossom74 I am still in shock its September, bet you are too! Its going to be a very exciting month methinks!
@Bongley I saw your message on the other thread, so just a couple more weeks before the POTB commences?! It wont be that bad, promise! I always think at least you get a couple of hours sleep - something I could so do with at the moment
AFM I ate like a pig this weekend and feel quite bloated today as a result of it. I stupidly made cakes again so of course a few of them and a bucketload of icing fell down my throat then for dinner I had bacon and egg sandwiches....nice but not very healthy with the amount of butter that is mandatory when I make them! @Blossom74 they were eggs from a farm we are trying out
Went to see DH's dad yesterday in the nursing home which was a bit sad tbh, he seemed a bit spaced out and didn't talk, not sure if its the morphine patches or not. Poor DH
Hope everyone is traveling well!
My donor and I have discussed future contact, she worded it beautifully by saying that it would be best to see how our relationship evolves. I told her that I didn't want her to be a stranger to our family and that planned on being honest with our child.
If we are successful ( or even if not) I'm sure she is someone I will always remain in contact with but I don't think locking in something your not comfortable is ideal.
Sometimes it can take time for the find the right donor or them to find you, are you on EDA?
winsor says I think it would depend on what you are comfortable with....did you go overseas because you wanted an anom donor or because donors in Aus can be hard to find? I sometimes wonder if the fact it can't be anom here puts some people off donating...it is something I would be very interested in but I would want to be anonymous I think. I don't think I would be comfortable with her visiting every year but that would depend on you and DH and how the relationship with her progresses organically I suppose. I know sometimes people set out thinking/expecting one thing and then finding another along the way, I think @Blossom74 can explain this better than me with her ED
Hey @Molros, got me a Dr Alison Gee appointment lined up, but on cancellation list for Dr M and Wazza.....
Sorry to hear about your FIL.. Did you give him a big cuddle? Deep down he's with it, but that morphine doesn't help *hugs* to you, DH and DFIL..
@pingc383 Thank you. Yep and got some pics of all of us but he's not really smiling (but is trying too) and just seemed 'vacant'. They said between 2sks - 6 mths about 4 mths ago and I think he'll go past that, its just like some awful waiting game
That's great for the confirmed appt...when is it? You still have a couple of embies left in the freezer don't you? Hopefully thew Wazza one comes through for you soon
Hi hon and welcome!
I received an offer from my donor on Egg Donation Australia. In fact, several of the girls here did.
I think it is really important that you be comfortable in what you agree to. You have to be open and honest up front because at the core of this there should always be respect and kindness. You don't want hurt feelings on either side at the end.
For my donor and I (we are due to cycle this month) we will have regular FB and phone contact, and I am in a group on FB with her other recips so we can all see each others babies and keep in contact. It gives me some peace because we will probably only have one baby and this ensures that after we are gone our child will have access to their genetic siblings. Our donor lives interstate but will visit us if we are lucky enough to be successful. I love her to bits so I'm comfortable with that.
Other recipients will prefer less contact and I do believe that there is a perfect match for everyone - you just have to wait for that person to find you. The average wait for a donor on EDA is 10 weeks
