    @Sue77 be kind to yourself. There is no right or wrong feelings at a time like this. You are grieving so many things, the loss of those years, those precious embies, the thought of carrying the baby yourself. But just remember, this will be your baby. It doesn't matter if she comes from your dna or if you carried her/him.

    They will look at you and see mum. You will be their world and they will love you.

    Once you step away from IVF you will feel so much better, and once you have the baby in your arms all these thoughts will vanish.

    Take the time to mourn, then look forward to your future as a mum if a very much wanted and loved child.

    Congrats on the donor being available, is the surrogate ready too? I really hope this is it for you. After all the pain and heartache you deserve happiness xx

    You girls are just awesome. Those heartbreaking, but strength to the core stories have made me cry. I just makes me say again that no-one understands this journey except those that have/ are going through it.

    I was already at a place where I was happy to move on to DE when our last OE attempt worked. Now when I look at her I think that what @gorgeousgeorge said is absolutely true. Our bub did not turn out to look anything like what I thought our child would. My DH has very strong features but the only thing she inherited (so far) is a slight tinge of DH's red hair. Genetics is such a random thing. Parenting is not. The way you raise a child will have so much more influence than genes. I think of 2 dear friends who are both very creative. One has parents who nurtured that trait. The other had parents who tried to suppress it. Neither ended up working in a creative field but one has used their talents to complement their job while the other resents how her life turned out and dreams of what might have been. Nature/ nurture. The talent might be genetic but what that has meant in their life is much more about their upbringing.

    Amazing that woman who fell pregnant at 49!

    Yes I did Luv!!!

    Wasn't as harsh as I thought it was going to be.

    Yes I agree that girl seemed to have more of an issue with her Dad's illness more than his age.

    All thr best ladies @Billie2 for your appointment and @tuxcat for the followup scan. One more day @Tahli yippee.
    For me moving to de is a simple one we want a sibling it was hard working conceiving our daughter with numerous ivf issues and the reality is it would be unlikely we would be successful as my fs said it would be easier if we just had 1 issue rather than 3-4. I would rather move to it now with higher success rates than trying to find the maybe golden egg. For me and im considering overseas the cost is similar to a cycle here.

    @Sue77 your story is so touching, what a journey.... It's not over yet, in fact you might just start what your were meant to do without knowing it, what will surely make you achieve your dream. The hardest is behind you, what's in front of you is what has the most chances of success. It's bloody exciting when you look at it this way.
    I'm not at the de stage yet, so I can't elaborate much, but I always read with extreme attention what the ladies here have to say about it, as it could be me tmrw.

    @gorgeousgeorge, you must be an amazing teacher! I always learn so much from your posts! Those kinda posts where, even when u finished reading them, they're still in your mind making you think... You should start writing a Blog, a book or something! I'm serious!!

    @Grace1, my Menopur dosage is 412,5. Now I'm not familiar with Menopur, this is my first time on it, I think it's pretty high though.
    Happy to have you again as cycle buddy and hoping for better results for the both of us! X
    Have u booked an appt with Charlotte yet?

    @Billie2 today is the day! Good luck my friend, have fun with our fav fs, can't wait to hear about your latest BT results!


    Hi everyone else!! xx
