    @40NotOut I'm sorry @Lastchance75 - woohoo I see a BFP!

    @Green lady hoping all goes well! I didn't know there was an ideal for lining...I just thought thicker the better - oops

    @Tahli I hope your body get a break and that you find it easier to make a decision that's best for you over the next couple of months!

    I keep changing my mind all the time too! Last week had everything organised to be in Greece end Aug - but big freak out/melt down/lots of tears soon followed and I justcouldn't let go of last OE cycle (I didn't start taking the Pill) - so we've delayed one cycle so it'll be Sept in Greece for us (if Dr K agrees). I have one more chance and final month to really deal with letting go of OE! Part of me already thinks I've made a bad decision and am wasting another month where we could be closer to a BFP in Greece! AHHHH

    @BlondeinBrisvegas AF turned up properly today to give me my normal 27 day cycle. The other day must have been a dress rehearsal.
    My ex has agreed to have DS for the second week of the school holidays. So I have a whole week free. To Cape Town or not?? A lot of thinking to be done. I could even fit in a safari for the first time! What dates are you looking at @midnite01?
    @Rhino I'm still in that headspace 4 ED transfers later!!
    I know in my heart I can't do Wazza's kitchen sink protocol. I still have my Clexane bruises and my hair is continuing to fall out. Not good.
    I need to write out a bare minimum drug schedule and see if I feel OK with it.
    Starting out ttc a sibling for DS when he'd just turned 3 and I was still in the little person phase of life is very different to now when he's 4.5 and a much more independent bigger boy. Somewhat surprisingly I'm weighing up whether I want to head back into the wee tiny baby phase which sounds cute but is bloody shattering/hard work, esp on my own...when I could accept my lot and keep moving towards the 'me time' phase, enjoying lovely things like easily travelling with DS etc. Food for thought.

    I think if this is something you need to do in order to move forward with the DE option then you must do it Luv and that's all I'm going to say on the matter as I really shouldn't be saying anything at all to be honest as the donor path is one I have no experience in, so it's on that note that I shall bow out and leave it up to the other Lovelies who are experienced in this to advise you further

    Will be and sending prayers your way for a "Lucky Last" OE Cycle for you Luv!!!

    Yep...sounds like it was a dress rehearsal Luv

    Food for thought indeed!!!! What to do Luv????

    Well...you could go and do the triple transfer and if that doesn't work draw a line under the whole thing permanently and move on with your life just you, DS and your furbaby???


    Yes, first thing is first though and that's to decide if you even want to be a Mum again???...If the answer is yes then you better start planning your trip!!!

    @Rhino I think you're doing the right thing. I have heard so many of the lovely ladies here say that they knew when they were ready to move to donor eggs. It is not your time to move on yet. Just maybe there is a reason for that.

    @40NotOut big hugs to you. July/ August isn't far away though.
    @MissDa still keeping everything crossed for you.

    @Lastchance75. I see a line! Looks like Hawaii won't be seeing you for awhile... unless of course you need a holiday! Can't wait to see the next POAS photo.

    Hello to everyone else. I am following with great interest as it looks like there will be lots more BFP's coming up for the warrior women.

    @Rhino
    For me deciding to use DE was a no-brainer, I had 3 cycles with my own eggs
    Cycle 1- 1 to transfer no frozen bfn
    Cycle 2 0 fert
    Cycle 3 cancelled - no response
    Statistically we had a less than 5% chance of a "live birth"
    I had a friend offer her eggs so decision made, unfortunately hasn't been a great outcome, so my only advice is "if" you use a donor choosing someone who has donated before and produced good quality eggs would be the priority.

    Not sure what's next for me, guess I'll know in a few days, but my next option would probably be Greece but hopefully neither of us will have to book that flight

    Exactly @BlondeinBrisvegas...do I go and do the TET and then draw the line?
    It's amazing how much of a wake up call having the puppy has been! Yes I know he's an animal rather than a human but the extra work, lack of sleep, etc has all been a reminder of the early years with a wee babe.
    I thought DS was starting primary school next year but we had an interview with his kinder teacher yesterday and because he's a Jan baby we've decided to hold him back a year so he'll start prep the month he turns 6 instead. It should give him a level playing field with his peers rather than being the kid always trying to catch up. This means I'll be a stay at home mum for an extra year which feeds into my decision as to whether to do another ttc round or not.
    Thats an extremely powerful question...do I want to be a mum again.
    Hugs to you for 'getting it'.

    Thanks everyone for your support! @MissDa I don't know that we get any info about our donors in Greece - we don't get to chose them - the doctor does that. I did ask a question about the donor and if I could get any info about her but Dr Nikos never answered that question... and I forgot to ask again at the time we spoke...
