JenB- Thanks so much for the welcome and for adding me to the list
. I hope you are feeling better after your bug.
I have been reading through the thread, wow you have been through a lot
, you are such a strong and brave lady I dont know how you've managed to cope with everything you've been through. I have found what everybody has written to be really helpful as I have been finding it a bit difficult with the double donor situation.
Carolyn- Thanks for the welcome
, it took me a while but I got here in the end
. The same goes for you as I said to Jen, you are a strong and brave lady too, I dont know how you cope with everything and then this IVF on top! I havent been on the donor conception site yet but I will as soon as I can It sounds really interesting.
Jen1- How are the hedaches?
When I was on the patches they gave me hedaches for the first day or so but then they seemed to get better. When I put fresh ones on I would get more, but they did get less painfull, at least the pessaries are used up front and not up back
, but I cant say they were very pleasant either way :oops:I havent told work about this cycle either, I am off the first two weeks in september so I am hoping et will be then and they wont have to know. I cant believe how long you have untill et!! It will be here in no time, I bet you are so excited. Have you found out any information on the donor yet?
Anna- You helped me right back in the beginning when I was just starting out on this journey
, you were a big help and the information you gave made it much easier. Thank you so much, hope Matthew is well.
Hi to Babyblue, Poochie, Rebecca and everyone else on this thread.
I am not quite sure how I am feeling about using donor eggs and sperm on this cycle, its all been a bit sudden. Dh is absolutely fine about it as he never knew his biological father, he died in a work accident a few weeks before he was born. His stepfather has always been his dad. I think that not knowing his real dad has shown that it doesn't make much difference as long as you are loved and his stepdad has loved dh and is brother as if they were his own. Dh has been fantastic. But I feel a bit guilty having a child that will not be able to trace their genetic parents, I am being selfish?
I have the most stupid things going through my mind like, if it works and we have a baby what will we put on the birth certificate? We have only told close family about the egg donation and only dh, my mum and my sister know about the donor sperm, we feel people just dont need to know, we just say IVF to everybody else.
Is there anybody else on this thread using both donor egg and sperm? It would be interesting to know how other people feel about it.
Take care everyone
Lots of love
