    considering another cycle in Australia.
    @Aquinos sorry to hear about your result last week. As @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

    Yeah @Aquinos77 I'd not be comfortable with that...but you might be.

    @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

    Yup, I started out not wanting any contact. That's how I knew when the right donor had found me though. I wanted her in my/our life! We are so close now that even if she pulled out and decided she didn't want to cycle anymore I'd be ok, but if our friendship ended I'd be devastated. She's like my best friend.

    @emski72 I've been meaning to ask you for ages how you are? How is E? Are you all booked for Jan? I'm so happy you've managed to secure the same donor, everything works out for a reason hey? xx

    Good you! Happy hens give great eggs!
