Hello Lovelies!!!!! 👋👋👋
So good to hear from you both!!!😊
Sorry to hear no BFFP's have come your way despite you both doing your best to make it happen!!😦
Would either of you consider going down the DE route?? QFG up here have started a "Travelling Donor" program that recruits them from SA & brings them to Aus so you don't even have to leave the country plus they have to be known by law here too.
Pretty exxy apparently...more than going overseas for a donor is my understanding. Don't know if that's an option for you Girls??
If not the Permanent Care program sounds promising😊xoxo

Hi ladies! I'm still here ... Lurking 😊
Sorry to hear no magical BFP's, but so delighted to hear of your fam's good health Kelly, and practicing with hotty sounds good too Missy!
AFM - I'm UTD with twins (at 43) so I can certainly vouch for the overseas donor route BIB mentioned. If you ever want to chat about it let me know. The permanent care sounds great too - very challenging I'm sure! I considered it in the early days but decided that sadly, I prob didn't have the skills for it.

Yes...well that is a problem isn't it when you haven't got any FFS's!!!!
I know you can access your Super in some cases to do IVF but don't know if they'd allow you to use it for DE either here or o/seas??? I've seen some talk of it on another thread. you win the bloody lotto!!!
AFM: I'm good thanks Luv for the most part DP and I separated 6 months ago (I instigated it) for lots of reasons but remain committed to co-parenting DD together
DD is coming up to her 2nd birthday at the end of August. It looks like she is somewhere on the Autism Spectrum. She has Global Delays (which is a result of the Autism) so have been taking her to Early Intervention Programs/Therapies since just after her 1st birthday...Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Playgroup that is play based therapy for Special Needs children as well as regular Playgroup for "typically developing" children. She also goes to Child Care a few times a week to help with socialisation skills.
Just waiting to have her formally assessed and diagnosed. Until then it's therapy and more therapy in conjunction with regular follow-up's with the Paediatrician. Am investigating whether I can afford to take her to a private Developmental Paed to have her assessed asap (have no PHI plus I know the assessment will require several visits to complete) or else it's likely to take another 12 months or more before I get a diagnosis through the Public system where we are now

Vixjc! Wonderful news Hun, congratulations, how far are you?
So sorry to hear about your split from your OH! And and what a lot you have on your plate with your DD's diagnosis! But you are amazing and I'm sure that you will be absolutely wonderful at teaching and nurturing your DD's abilities, she already has your abounding love and that is the most important of all xx

Evening gorgeous gals, . I'm still here. Still single too. And still trying for a sibling for my 4.5y/o poppet. I've undertaken 4 unsuccessful DE transfers since our thread was going. I have an apt with Wazza in a few wks and I'll decide where to go from there...a final whirl with my OEs, do a TET with my 3 donated embryos in CT or draw the line.

How amazing to hear from all you girls again, I've missed you!
@missybear - with DE, have you thought about advertising for someone locally and just paying for the cost of the ivf cycle? As opposed to going OS etc which would add up the $$. Or are you literally totally out of funds?
Blonde - I've thought about DE but I'm starting to wonder if I want to put my 45 year old bod (46 in a few months) through a pregnancy. When I could offer an existing child who is desperate for stability and love something really great. Like you @Vixjc though, I'm terrified it might be too challenging for me. I'm also thinking about testing the waters first by possibly starting with offering respite care to foster parents - so you take the child one or two weekends a month. Might be a softer entrance and give me a feel for the system and the kids. @missybear I assume you may have seen some pretty damaged kids from dire situations? How did things turn out for them?
I've been following Blonde and Tahli on the other thread so kinda know what's happening with you guys. Some challenging times for you both undoubtedly but both strong, resilient women and I have no doubt you will get there in the end.
Amazing news @Vixjc being pregnant with twins OMG!!

@Kelly70...haven't actively looked at local DE hun, apprehensive as we might not be able to afford more than one cycle TBH have relaxed about the whole thing since losing the twins, OH longs for a bub of his own but we truly are stretched financially and I would want to be able to try more than once if we had the blessing of fertilised DE's

Fair enough Luv, though I have seen other Lovelies (through my lurking on the DE threads) the same age as you getting BFFP's going the donor route so I know it is possible but as you say, it's the physical aspect of the whole thing you have to weigh up
I like your idea of offering respite care as an entry point into the whole Foster Care system and all it entails including the children and what their needs may be as I imagine there will many with special needs of all descriptions as well as many with emotional trauma etc that will require specialised help and a different approach taken etc. I also imagine you'd be given training for that sort of thing??? Poor little darlings God knows if there's one thing this country needs, it's more Carers!!!

@Kelly70's suggestion of a local egg donor could be worth at least a squizz on their website
A few of the Girls on the Over 40's thread have found donors from advertising on them (I think there are 2 main sites?? Egg Donor Australia and something else??) so they can point you in the right direction and answer any questions if your curiosity has been piqued!!
A couple of them are going through the motions now (counselling and such) in preparation for beginning a Cycle within the next couple of months
