    I didn't think you were stirring either

    agree with everyone here. it's understable to have to have breaks now & then to protect yourself.

    good luck for transfer tomorrow @tuxcat

I don't personally want to commit to having a close relationship with the donor as I have no idea how Im going to feel over time in regards to that person being around all the time. So I think that although something might be deemed on the site as "limiting" I think ignore that and do what is right for you. Its more important to feel completely comfortable with your arrangement even if that means its takes an extra month.

    Our PD contacted us within 5 weeks -her words were that she liked the sound of us and its clear now that we connect on things in common / similar mentality about stuff. Put your personality into your ad, have a bit of fun on your thread and on others threads and be relatively active on the site and you will find someone eventually I think. I don't even believe you need to go to meet ups, but it can only be helpful if you do decide to go to them.

    I also think its hard to know what the donors are wanting as they don't really post a lot, there are a bunch who are very much connected into the EDA community but there are many who obviously don't want to get that involved in it (like ours) so you really don't know who is looking until they contact you.

    Also some people like us who weren't ready to start a donor cycle at the time of joining just start with an intro and start interacting on the site so that people get to know who you are and your story. Then by the time you are ready potentially you have already found someone.

    I would say its worthwhile giving it a shot for any of the girls considering DE. Worst case scenario you don't find the right person and then can go the O/S route

    good luck today @Tahli and @Maxwellsmum !! hope you're feeling better too Max
    @Chiefsgirl good to hear things have improved with bubs and you sound great!
    I personally wish I had been able to use a local donor to allow my kids to be able to have some contact later if they want. It was not possible for me so I went OS. I suppose it's selfish of me to create kids with no access to their true genetic history but in the end I decided I needed to be a mum more. I don't believe it's the most important thing to know your roots. It's more important to be loved and cared for in the present. Just my feelings. I understand everyone feels different.

    Fwiw I wasn't passing any judgement on local or o/s donors I was just talking about the local process as I think some of the girls were worried about the cost of de with going o/s. There hasn't been that many of us going local previously so I think we all thought it would take a long time.

    Everyone makes the decision that's right for them, that's all you can do.
