    Thankyou. I just noticed in your signature that your daughter was a donor embryo? This is what I wanted to do but Dr N said it was not a possibility and that I had to do double donor.

    I just realised hastily written comment about not wanting another first trimester could come across as really thoughtless on a thread like this. I'm completely conscious of how lucky I am and grateful for it. The comment had to with mother guilt really, I was so fatigued and nauseous that I feel like I've been letting DD down by not being as active with her as I usually am. That's all.

    @gorgeousgeorge I often think that maybe I’m worrying about nothing and if a child wants to find their genetic roots they might still be able to with all the DNA testing sites - if not the donor, maybe a donor sibling etc. But I’m a worrier and an over thinker, can’t help it

    Nah its not nothing, it is something to worry about in a way. Identity is important but it affects everyone differently. I watched an 'Insight' program about adopted and donor people. So mamy different views. Mostly what i got out of it was that people that were lied to or found out later in life struggled a lot more than people who were told the truth from the beginning. It also helps me because of some things in my life, like, my brother and sister are my genetic siblings but I dont really have a relationship with them. My friends fulfil the role of brothers and sisters way more for me. And my husband has a daughter from a previous relationship who he only sees once or twice a year because she lives very far away. So for me I can see, what good is it being related to people if you dont see them, talk to them or have a relationship with them? You dont have to be realted to someone to love them or fulfil the role of "traditional" relationships like mother, father, brother, sister etc... Anyone can do the things those titles conceptualise. If you do mum things, then you are a mum.

    Lol i got one of those ancestry dna kits to use on viv, but when it came it was a vial you had to fill with saliva ( i thought it would be like a cotton bud you'd swab her cheek with). I rang them back and said I cant use it coz I cant get a 3 week old baby to spit in a vial. The lady was real nice and refunded my money. I'll get another one when she can spit and follow instructions.

    Im a little confused because a donor embryo is a double donor, yeah? So she is a donor embryo from donor egg and donor sperm. I wonder if there's been a miscommunication somehow? Also its strange for embryoland to not reply. Can you try calling dr.n/skype him? Check you have the right email and they havent been returned to your inbox unsent.

    I replied to an email they had sent me and have checked my spam folders etc and nothing so I think they did get it.
    By donor embryo, I meant using one that has already been created from donors rather than going through the whole egg collection process and having the stress of waiting for fertilisation numbers etc.

    And you are so right @gorgeousgeorge there is no right or wrong path. Every person and family is different and you can only do what feels right to you. No right answers!

    I got a giggle over picturing trying to get Vivienne to spit in a jar .
    @Superaunty let me know if you find answers to the sperm question. I can’t face actually contacting any clinics yet so limiting myself to forum research for now!
    @Kalina we know what you meant xx

    @Superaunty the bottom of the sperm donor info is blurry but its medical tests. I'll try zooming in on it and reposting, not sure if it will be clearer20190202_225004.jpg

    I agree that genetics mean different things to different people - DH for example diays he's never had the slightest bit of interest in finding his biological parents. He was adopted as a week-old baby, and his adoptive parents are his parents, full stop.

    And my favourite family member ever was one of my grandfathers, who was the best human being I've ever known and is still my moral compass in life. Technically he was my step-grandfather, but I never even think of that.

    If I'm lucky enough to have this baby I can't wait to introduce her to my extended family and then say please don't worry, you're not genetically related to any of them lol.

    .[/QUOTE @Kalina sometimes i think the same thing about my family, especially at Christmas when they are all concentrated into the same space at the same time. And when I think of how i was as a teenager (horrible) i think maybe Viv will be not like me, thank god! Lol and when my husband is pis*ing me off i also think its a blessing i disguise she doesnt have his dna.
    I really do think that other than having 46 chromosomes, dna is overrated and its improtance and effect in people has been sensationalised and quite misrepresented in the media. And its weird how everyone thinks their own dna is the best. I think that comes from biological instinct rather than rational thinking.

    Oh and i m aware that ive done a lot if embryoland posting last few days and so, for good measure, after being on de thread on bubhub for about 3 years now, ive only ever heard good things about:
    Iankentro Athens & Thessaloniki GREECE
    Capetown Fertility- SOUTH AFRICA
    Ziln (Zlin)- CZECH REPUBLIC

    Other than Embryoland, these are clinics ive read many personal stories of ladies who have been there, been back there repeatedly and been happy with results and staff even if they hadnt gotten a bfp.
