How exciting @Summer! I'm sorry if I've missed this previously but have you now decided to go the ED route rather than an OE cycle? Or are you planning on doing one last OE cycle before proceeding with SA?
I am so excited for you! FINALLY something is happening for you! We will all be waiting with baited breath once you're PUPO!

Yup, I hear that! As an accountant our work sort of ebbs and flows. March and early April are traditionally quiet so I've not had much work on. Considering I need to be doing about 18 hours a week in order for us to make ends meet that's a bit of a worry. DH talks about me finding more work and I've been trying to tell him it will all be ok - after June ticks over there will be LOADS of work available We just have to bide our time.
Meanwhile, the personal assistant of DH's boss has just announced her retirement. Among other jobs which have all been reallocated to other employees she also does the personal typing of documents for him. These are usually highly private in nature and DH's boss was wondering who might be able to take that over now. DH has put his hand up on behalf of me and said I would be happy to type up whatever he needed as long as it was on a casual basis and could fit in around my existing job. I'm stoked with that! I actually love typing and am pretty good at it, so now there is talk about perhaps doing the Quality Assurance manual and things like that. Even if I only get three hours a week it will cover our loan repayments so I'm pretty happy!
I hope your day goes by quickly for you hon

I bet you are hon. And I'm so glad your ex-DP has finally moved out. I don't think it matters if you are the dump-er or the dump-ee in the relationship, once it's been severed you really do need your own space to find your feet again and begin to move forward.
I'm sorry he was being a bit tricky with you over Easter. This is the thing - people can only hide their true colors for a certain period of time before they revert back to their usual ways. It's all well and good to say "I've changed, I'll do better" but another thing entirely to actually carry through with it. I am sure that in being difficult with you he did nothing but cement your feelings that it's time to move on. At least now you will have the space to do that

Gosh, how bl00dy awkward for you. Have you got a preference if it came down to waiting to use the twin who is currently cycling or using the twin that has not cycled before? Personally I wouldn't be too concerned about using the one who has never cycled before. It's pretty unlikely that there will be egg issues, and she should know all about the process from talking to her sister about it. But if you think that perhaps the twin who is currently cycling might be a better match it might well be worth waiting to see if she will be re-advertised as a donor after this cycle is done?
Have you spoken to ex-DH about the money again? Any movement on that front? I have everything crossed here for you hon and I'm hoping he will come to the party and give you enough to get your next cycle done

Bah ha ha, I have just flooded the thread with Blossom Oh well, at least I'm all caught up now.
So I've been thinking.....
I've had such a strong focus on IVF/having a baby/finding a donor etc that a large part of the rest of my life has sort of fallen by the wayside. I got to thinking about it last night and you know what? I've always wanted to write a book.
So I think that's just what I'm going to do. I want to write my life story, focusing on my family, working in the quarry as the only female on site (I did that for 10 years), moving into accounting, going to uni, meeting my future DH and moving to the farm, farming life, and then relocating and the IVF journey.
What do you think? I'm a bit nervous but I think once I get started it should flow. Maybe I can be famous! Maybe I could sell my book and make some money out of it! I know it's a long time project but it's something I've always wanted to do....

@Blossom74 I posted up the ad in Jan I think and first donor to contact us yesterday. We have stated tho about doing one more OE cycle and also I'm not part of the Facebook group so those two things have possibly impacted things. I'm guessing the cycle thing would definitely have. I haven't been to any meet ups yet either. its early days so I don't want to assume all this will just work out, but fingers crossed it does - or we get our own BFP next month!

Thanks for your reply hon. I am very active on the FB page and also the forum, and I try to get onto both at least every second day. As far as meet-ups go, we can't really go to them at all. We are so remote and it would mean taking time off work which we really can't afford. Hopefully that won't hurt our chances too much. I wish our ad would hurry up and get approved! I know using a donor buys us some time but I'm pretty anxious to get the ball rolling!

@tuxcat yay! I know the admins recently posted up a stat that the average waiting time for an offer was 10 weeks (but that's if you've been to a meet up). @Blossom74 but I don't think tuxcat has been to any meet ups yet? I don't think I'd been to any meet ups when I got my first offer from a lady from NZ around the 12 week mark (had to turn her down due to some issues) and, for what it's worth, I had about 5 potential donors contact me, ranging from Perth, Blue Mountains & NZ. That's NOT to say I had 5 offers, just women expressing interest in helping.

Caesardust yes, I agree! You want to find something broken so you can fix it! Makes perfect sense. I had a fair bit of endo removed from my lap back in 2011, I had no idea I was suffering from it, no symptoms. BFP next cycle after that.
@BlondeinBrisvegas sorry your ex is still being an **** but I guess at least it has clarified things for you and he is out from underneath your feet. Must be a relief.

Interesting. Logistically, how do you manage when you get 5 offers? Are you allowed to chat to all 5 people to get to know them better, or do you have to say "Well, you were the first one to offer so I'll go with you." I don't want to do the wrong thing should I ever be so lucky to have someone (or multiple people) want to help me....
