    P.S I’m so sorry, I just saw some of the comments in the Greece forum and saw you have lost you bub/bubs? Apologies for asking where you were at without doing some more reading. Sending you love & light and lost of digital hugs x

    Hi @RubyT87 no, no apologies needed. Im doing just fine. It was another lady who has just lost one of her twins :-( . So i have a 14 month old daughter from donor embryos in greece. I fell pregant with her after 7 years ttc. Tried naturally for years, did 6 own egg ivf transfers and was a poor responder and never got any really good embryos, only one or two 3 day embryos. Then i went to greece twice to try donor eggs and that didnt work either so we switched to full donor embryos and thats when I fell pregant with my daughter Vivienne :-) Then somehow when she was 7 months old, after everything we went through I have fallen pregant naturally! We still cant believe it! I am having a little boy in July.
    This is my little girl Vivienne... so hopefully after this little boy arrives, i think my journey will be over. I was always planning to go back to greece to try for a second baby but it seems now I wont have to. 20190208_101023.jpg

    Holy Moley! What a journey after 7 years ttc including IVF than u fell naturally after Vivienne! The universe is challenging, mysterious but beautiful all the same

    We have been ttc for over 3 years. We have always got to blasts & a couple of frozen but they NEVER implanted, not a glimmer of a BFP in that time...Fast forward 10 cycles including stim cycles, FET and 1x freeze all stim cycle - we finally moved (from LB) to our new specialist Dr NL. We did a FET last year and bang fell pregnant for the first time ever but miscarried (T16) but we have new seed of hope.
    Specialist discovered all along I needed Day 7 transfer not Day 5, 2x days extra Progesterone (through ERA Test) and full immune protocol - problem is now we have the protocol but my eggs are older. So here we are now, prepping for our last/final Embryos transfer (FET) of me than were moving on to DE. And tbh I’m so there.

    Little Vivienne is so gorgeous!!!! Ahhhh and you have a little boy on the way AMAZING! You have your wee family! So very blessed & deserves after everything you’ve been through! Thank-you for sending that, it made me smile and excited for what may come.

    I hope we are blessed very soon! I can’t take anymore...! x

    Oh im sorry its been such a hard road for you too. I started trying naturally when I was 30 and i was inly 34 when i did all our own egg ivf. Yes i felt the same in that i just couldnt stand the waiting for a baby anymore. And i guess i just wanted to post a pic of viv because people can have all these normal natural worries about using a donor but in the end, you get a face like this and you realise it doesnt matter. Even if someone with a crystal ball had have told me 2 years ago, that i would conceive naturally in 2019, i still feel that i woulnt have been unable to continue to wait that long coz i was so depressed. I honestly wouldn't change a thing because if i did then i wouldnt have her. I hope that whatever happens and however you do it, that you get your rainbow baby asap and i hope all the best for you with your last frozen embie.
    I was lucky that my dh just does whatever i want, but he still tells me almost every week that me going to greece to get Viv was the best thing eva. Sometimes guys just dont get the "baby wants" in the same way we do but when bubba arrives they are totally smitten. Yep, i reckon when the thought of another OE cycle/transfer fills you with dread and the thought of DE fills you with renewed hope and excitement, then you know you're ready. xx Feel free to hop into the greece thread even if you dont plan on going there, we are all really nice and supportive. Apart from costs, sometimes it just comes down to where you would prefer to go on an overseas holiday and honestly after years of IVF money down the drain, who couldn't use an excuse to have to spend money on a lovely holiday overseas! Lol im honestly a little disappointed i wont be going back to Athens anytime soon ;-)

    But I’m struggling to find an affinity with that background.
    I'm in the same boat as you, similar fert history and like you had difficulty feeling an affinity with the donor choices presented to me (I am mostly Asian background so 175 tall blonde didn't feel like the right choice at all )

    The assistant at the clinic I ended up using went through all sort of great tips to choosing the right donor. Things I never thought about before like blood type and RH factor and they also seemed to really know how the donation would go based on the previous results of the donor.

    So this may not be great advice like you're looking for but it really helped me to have someone who knew the donor selection process and could help me match up what I wanted with what the realistic outcome would be. Rather than looking through a million profiles on my own. That was just overwhelming for me.

    Does anyone know if any other countries/clinics enables you to see the Donors profile abit more like S/A? Wondering if it’s the option where you can see baby pics & have more detail on their background!

    The US gives detailed profiles. You could try California IVF (probably similar pricing to Spain) or Conceptions in Hawaii (expensive).

    I agree with this! The first 4 donors I looked at didn’t pan out - one got snapped up just as I enquired; one was too busy to donate this year (fair enough!); one had low egg numbers; one had no pregnancies from two donation cycles. I was starting to get a bit despondent to be honest! Then the donor coordinator suggested someone for me. I’d initially skipped past her because her hair/eye colour is very different to mine. But while she doesn’t look anything like me she is similar to my sister. Plus she has donated before with great results, blood types are compatible and she just sounds like such a lovely person. I am using double donor so I’ve just made sure the sperm donor matches me a bit more closely— but I probably wouldn’t have thought of that if the coordinator hadn’t said “if you’re looking for a proven donor with good results, you can’t go past X”.

    The coordinators can help separate the things that matter from the emotion!
