    Massive hugs @Tahli - but you sound like a girl on a mission and I know you'll have your next steps planned out real soon.

    This is just my opinion and I more than anyone understand that time is of the essence over 40, but I reckon taking a month off to regroup, plan and get your head straight is a really great idea and you'll come back to it fresh.

    Thanks @ScubaGal @Kelly70 @Vixjc & @Jem70. I never heard back from Lynn's office, no surprise there!
    Today I've moved ahead with booking my donor treatment in SA. Paid deposits, booked my donors & all that jazz.
    Depending on the timing I may be able to squeeze in another OE cycle. We'll see how it all pans out.
    Can it take a little while for AF to return after stopping the Crinone?

    @Tahli That's the go Luv!! Strike while the iron's hot!!!

    Crinone alone never used to stop AF for me, but it did when the Pregnyl etc was added. I used to get AF about 3 or 4 days after stopping but every woman is different of course. You should have it within a week tops

    Very exciting times ahead r.e SA!!! Hopefully you'll hear something back on Monday from LB's office or else ring them again!! Either way.... and prayers being sent for a sticky one on your next Cycle!!!

    @Tahli, wow!!! You're not wasting any time here. Wish I was brave enough to make that move - you're kind of inspiring me now. What are the rough costs of the donor cycle and will you use a SA sperm donor too?

    Woohoo @Tahli this is a great move. Go get that bubba.

    I know I can't really speak from any experience because I haven't had to consider donors but I do feel like the bond I have with my bubba is because I carried him, birthed him and getting to know his little personality.

    When you reach that six week mark with a newborn and they start smiling at you, talking to you and looking at you with such complete love, it's amazing and incomparable and it's because you're their mummy.

    No combination of genes is responsible for that, it's the mothering that you do, feeding and comforting and making them feel safe and wanted that produces that love.

    I want you all to have that chance.

    Wow Tahli! You go girl!!!

    Scubagal is right, and I can speak of the donor experience, that bond comes from parenting, genes schmenes I say!

    Kelly70 - I understand the costs of going to SA and what I do in Greece are similar. I found the travel costs of a quick trip, dr appointments and meds for me and the cycle costs for my donor to total circa $12,000 AUD. granted, I had DH's swimmers - but he had to fly to Greece too, so I reckon that cost would be fairlY indicative. And the odds of success are 60% plus, instead of 2% ... But it's a decision each of us needs to work through, it's very personal and we don't all land at the same place once we have. For me - it's heaven :-)

    AFM: day 6 of positive opks. WTF. This has never happened before, the only thing I can think is the strong vitex I'm on could be the culprit (it does make you ovulate more strongly, like a natural clomid). But sounds like my hormones are messed up right now. I have no ovulation signs apart from some on Monday just before I got my first positive. I scheduled in time with DB on Fri night just in case but honestly I don't know what's going on.

    Starting to feel over my own eggs!

    Thanks for the beautiful input re. going the donor path too @ScubaGal and @Vixjc
