I've mentioned before I have this stuffed up inability to get excited. It's a habit I've developed as a child to protect myself from disappointment (and I blame my *** of a father) but hey, it seems to work for me. Just killing time for the next 6 hours now before I put on my sleuth hat to stalk @Tahli's donor then get my kit off and welcome my little buns home
    @leyshoja I didn't feel half the excitement this cycle as with my own eggs. I'm sure that would change (perhaps gradually) with a BFP but I did feel much more detatched.

    wow, Blonde, you were right. my EPU is on monday! I have another blood test tomorrow then trigger sat night. it's all happening. last cycle it was all much later - my EPU was on the friday so I'm a week early this time. not sure if it was the change in dosage or just how differently I responded this time.

    Great news @winsor! @Bongley, yeah it's not the same is it. When there's a BFP I expect it won't matter, but for now I need to make a conscious effort to stop referring to future bub as DP's baby. I do it all the time jokingly but need to cut it out. Little things like that eat away at an already fragile acceptance of our lot in life as donor recipients.

    @leyshoja Yes, I've made a few jokes too which I know I shouldn't do. My partner says it's not as exciting for him either which surprised me a little but I guess I would feel the same if the roles were reversed. There is an element of sadness to it as well. All to be blown away with the sound of that first heartbeat I'm sure

    @Bongley @leyshoja (andn @Tahli) I'm not even going to try to counsel you on the DE thing as I have NFI what it's like for you Girls and I never will so it's not my place to do that. I can only imagine the mixed emotions for you and all the other Lovelies who are going down this road

    I will leave the advice giving to those Lovelies who know firsthand what it's like and how it feels ok??xoxo

    Nicely said @BIB.
    @winsor, come on Monday! I'm so excited for you!

    @ leyshoja, I must admit you brought back a memory for me today. I remember years ago I had an eraser, and written across it in gold italic foil were the words "He who expects nothing shall never be disappointed." I held onto that phrase (and the eraser - well, it was a good eraser!) for a long time, but have since decided to quote a new phrase "Every journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step." Fairly appropriate for us all I think

    Anyway, I digress. @leyshoja, all the very best to you love. I will check for updates on Tuesday of course. And maybe even Monday, because I know how sneaky we can all be with POAS around here

    @Tahli, I'm thinking of a baker's dozen for you! I am so, so, excited to hear your results this evening. I can't imagine how excited you must be lol. With so much goodwill flying at you from everyone here you have to get 13 good follies AT LEAST!

    Will be back later for updates....

    Krysta x

    Hi Everyone. I have been thoroughly enjoying reading your posts. I am very much a first time IVFer and am 41. My tubes decided to give out on me and then I had surgery up north and the butcher damaged my ovary so only 1 working! We have gone to a clinic in Bris which seems quite good (not that I would really know!). It is all very confusing at the moment! We have done egg collection on Monday just gone and resulted in 5 mature eggs. We did ICSI as we want to do the CGH testing if possible and all 5 fertilised! Day 3 and all are going well. Tomorrow is day 5 and I honestly have not been able to sleep at all last night nor will I tonight I think! It is so incredibly nerve racking. We have decided to do an FET next month. This is my first and I look at your stories and you all give me inspiration. Thank you!
