Hi Amanda and welcome - anyone who donates eggs, whether egg sharing or altruistic, is a great lady in  my book :) The basic prep for a recipient is to down-reg when you did, then when you start stimming, we start HRT to build up the lining, then get very nervous when you have egg collection until we know we have some eggies  ::), EC same as you have done, but after that we are on progesterone too as our ovaries were "asleep" and cannot make any of their own. The 2ww is probably much like you have/are experiencing - excited then pessimistic, hopeful then not, reading something into every little twinge, obsessing about the size of our boobs (well some of us do that anyway ;D ). Wishing you the very best of luck  ^reiki^ ^reiki^  In the future, if you do want to donate eggs both CARE and MFS in Manchester accept egg donors - best bet will be to contact them directly nearer the time.
Ange - sorry to hear about the little hiccup in your cycle - hope you get it all sorted soon. By the way, Simon told me that some clinics give the boys some sterile saline to "wash off" with first, whereas others don't. The bacteria might just be contamination during/after collection rather than an infection in DH - but your GPs test should be able to tell you more. Fingers crossed it gets sorted quickly anyway  :)
Deb- hope your scan went well today  ^reiki^ - are you taking any aspirin this time?

OMG!!! Total confusion! ^idiot^

Had the scan this morning, it was only 6mm so growing slowly...so called the clinic and sent them a fax, they said they'd let me know..no phone on mobile or home so I went out with DD, got back here, there was an e-mail.They said ET on Friday 18th well, there isn't a Friday 18th, did they mean Thursday or Friday? Anyway, I opened the attachment giving the protocol and that says ET Friday 5th THIS FRIDAY!!! Of course, I can't get in touch with anyone until tomorrow so I'M FREAKING OUT!!!EEK!!

worrying about the flights, the money transfer, the tv crew, DD.. :eek: :eek: ^idiot^ ^twitch^ ^spin^ ^twitch^


Sorry, JUST HAD to share that with you all! ;D

Just wanted to wish Debs all the best for Friday.  Dont worry about Dr O and Dr W not being on hand - the other doctors and staff speak enough English for you to have the transfer without a hitch.

Good luck Debs - does your lining have to be upto a certain thickness for ET or will they do it at 6mm?

Carol250 - welcome, expect yopu are getting nervous now, try to stay calm, it does not hurt  - it's a bit like having and extended smear test. Let us know how it goes!

Hi everyone
I go off for the day to Southport Pleasureland with the Chernobyl kids (and having been on the Traumatizer ride it's a good job I'm not on a 2ww  ;D ) and come back to find so much to read! Debs - you must be so excited now! And at least not much time to panic too much  ::) Shame about the english-speaking docs being away (is that the good looking one?!!) and glad Mandy has been able to reassure you, after all,not many phrase books have things in like "put your legs up here" or "just relax while I put this catheter in"  ;) Wishing you the very best of luck for a smooth trip - keeping everything crossed for you  ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^
Mandy - you must be ready to pop - good luck to you too  :)
Hi Carol - welcome, and hope it is good news for you today, let us know how everything's going.
Caron - sure you'll be looking forward to putting your feet up for a bit - take care hun  :)
Hi Welshy - how's the neck/back? Hope all is well with you, and with your new house and new job - enjoy the summer  ;)
Hi to everyone else
Love Jaq
