That's such exciting news on the donor eggs gabbitz, I hope it all works out for you and you can become a family of 4.

It's so good to hear your updates and see where all the babies are up to.  Catalina is 14 months and just taking her first steps,  only really says a handful of words but has such a funny and inquisitive personality.

I'm glad we didn't cancel the appointment with the fertility clinic, we're going through a missed miscarriage just waiting for it to pass. We've got 1 frosty we'd like to use and off that doesn't stick we're ok to be a family of 3, the miscarriages have become too damaging emotionally for us to continue.

I don’t know if anyone is still around this group.
But I thought I’d share anyway.
We’ve just gone through a FET from our donor cycle and yesterday got our BFP for #2. Very excited that our 22 month DS will (hopefully) have a sibling coming along next year.

DS is doing well. Still a little delayed on gross motor skills because he was premature; but not such that they’re worried. We’ve just been given some stuff to watch out for - like tip toe walking and getting him to wear solid shoes to help him learn to walk properly.  His language is coming on well and like most toddlers, his favourite word at the moment is ‘No!’.

Hope everyone else is doing well with their bubs (or rather toddlers these days!).

Hi Gabbitz

I'm still here, sadly my pregnancy ended in Stillbirth 12mths ago.

Then my Partner left me.

So as of yesterday I started injections to try again, this time with donor sperm.

We should start a donor conceived thread!

Hi IamOzgirl.
Sorry to hear about your year. It sounds like a pretty sucky year.
There is a #282 thread, which I think you found.
I’d love to have found a donor thread prior to this point, but the numbers of us making use of a donor seem to be quite low, so finding others going through while you are is hard. If you want to ask me stuff in this thread or #282 I’m more than happy to help if I can.

Bumbleflop and I seem to be the recent posters in #282. So you probably want to track back only a page or two of posts if that helps.

All the best with your stims.
