    Re: the donor egg issue.
    Some of you will know that donor embryo's were my plan B if our last cycle didn't work out. My FS thought DH had some sperm DNA issues arising from previous medical treatment so we looked into Donor embryo's rather than eggs. When I was researching I found a great online group that used one clinic. Some included pictures of their donor embryo bubs that floored me. I could not believe how alike these babies were to their non genetic mothers. I am a total believer in the epigenetic thing now.

    I am probably a good advertisement for donor eggs if it comes to that. My OE journey has resulted in no embies good enough to do PGD testing. A twin pregnancy where we were given a 1:2 chance of trisomy 21... both turned out to be ok but one still didn't make it.
    I don't know about the bonding issue though. It is a personal thing and I admit that I feel a strong bond with my OE bub that I don't know would be the same with a DE.

    Im a strong believer in epigenetics. I think the way it works is amazing.

    I watched it today and was amazed at the ivf part of it. Firstly the fs was so sincere and actually made the test calls to the patients. Does that really happen? Also ive never been scanned on morning of epu. I really felt for the couple. Such desperation. I reckon she was early 40s.

    I don't think most people know how terrible infertility is. I hate that these people are in such pain but it is good to have some more recognition. More recognition means more funding for research. More research (although it probably won't help us) will mean less pain for others in the future.
    So wish someone somewhere has already found an answer to our old eggs. Tomorrow the story comes out and the government immediately promises full funding for people needing the new treatment. Everyone gets pregnant first attempt. No miscarriages, no complications. Healthy bub every time.

    Ahh I can dream can't I.

    @Blossom74 - glad you feel some relief about your decision to close the door on OE. You've given it a red hot go and it's a good decision to move on and invest your resources in DE.

    @Blossom74 I admire your determination to focus on the next step of de. The desire for motherhood is strong and I'm certain you'll get there one way or another. We're all cheering you on that's for sure πŸ˜„

    Morning ladies. Can someone who is with Monash Melbourne pm me about how the finance works there. I'm completely freaking out. Have started down reg yesterday and will do lap then stim and freeze all Pgd. When do I have to pay for all of that? With my last clinic you paid some before Epu then the rest at transfer. Which meant it was a long time coming for the Medicare rebate on a down reg long cycle. This is my first and last chance with Monash and I'm petrified. I don't understand how normal everyday people can ever do more than one cycle looking at the costsπŸ€‘πŸ€‘πŸ€‘πŸ€‘

    @winsor I am thinking of you this morning and the devastation that you must be feeling, the desperation, the hopelessness, the total unfairness of it all. The grief with a loss at this point is so difficult, the hopes and dreams were making their way into reality and then it's suddenly all taken away and life can never be the same again. There's no words I can offer you that are going to be of any comfort, except that many of us have been exactly where you are right now and we did end up surviving. Scarred and with pieces of our heart missing forever, but we're still here... And we're here for you. I know you said this was the last roll of the dice for you, but that door isn't completely closed unless you choose it to be. I hope you and DH are holding each other close through the tears.
