Hello everyone,

Spent ages looking at this site and think it is fantastic!!
Finally plucked up the courage to join as I am different in that I am donating my eggs to a known recipient.

I have just started injecting and will be going for my 2nd scan next wednesday, hopefully, ec will be w/c 10 may. Feel quite nervous as I don't want to let anyone down, it is such a lot for everyone to deal with. Can't stop thinking what if????

Well enough rambling!!!

Hoping that everything goes really well for Angela and wishing everyone lots of luck and best wishes.

I wish you lots of luck and best wishes for all you do. Remember the injecting is not at all bad. Keep in touch.

Lots of love Jacqui x x x

Hello there, not done this before, pretty nervous!!!!!! Well I have had 3 failed IUI. Going into Hospital end of month to remove a lump or polyp is it?? then either start more IUI or move onto IVF.....

Very depressed at the moment, been off work for couple of months, cos I am losing control of myself!!!

Havnt's got anything postive to say as I am losing confidence in the fertilly system...everyone around me is pregnant.....so unfair....

Very sad Chrissy!!!!! :'(

Just wanted to say hi and to echo what the others have said about what a fab thing your doing. :) It restores your faith in humanity when you hear a story like yours. So thanks for that.

Chrissie, you poor love. I haven't had any failed tx's....yet.....It's soooo hard to keep going and stay positive when all you want to do is go to bed and stay there. I mean....how many more times will we need to 'pick ourselves up'!!!! Please search deep inside for the tiniest bit of hope that your dream is still possible.

And........please believe that we are ALL here to listen to you in the hope that venting to people who are all experiencing their own version of the same pain will give you a bit of relief.

Please come back and tell us how you are feeling when you feel ready to.

Jacqui - I'm having trouble finding the words to express how wonderful you are for donating your eggs! I'm thinking seriously about going on a waiting list for donated eggs but I'm in my early 40's and scared that no-one will come forward in time. You are a gem!!!

Chrissy - I know how you feel about losing control. Sometimes I wish I had a crystal ball that would tell me how long this pain will go on. Even if it said 10 more years I would take it if I knew there would be a child at the end of it. It's the not knowing while your life passes by that's so hard. Hang on in there and be kind to yourself.

Love Sally :)

Hi Sally

Thank you for your kind words. All I can say is give it a go otherwise you will never know. What other options do you have? I would be happy to communicate with anyone you know who might think about donating eggs either direct to you or into the 'kitty'.

I believe that if you get someone to donate to others then you get to the top of the list quicker, this may be wrong but I'm sure someone will tell us if it is.

I wish you lots of luck and best wishes for whatever you decide to do.

Love Jacqui x x
