So had appointment with donor egg consultant yesterday with counselling after... It was ok just two things that Im miffed about the wait its 4-9 months. We are not allowed to use donor eggs from couples that are doing the egg share we have to have eggs from a donor that effectively just walks in form the street and gives their eggs! hence the wait.... They are trying to appeal this in the Bristol area but we are in the Somerset area so wont affect us apart from all the Bristol people will get seen to first quickly and bump us up the list!.
The other thing i was a bit upset about was that now we will be using 'young' eggs they will only put 1 back in even though I am 38 years old and for the record we wont be allowed assisted hatching. On a plus note we are guaranteed 4 eggs possibly more. If it turns out its less than 4 then we will go back on the list for the next donor. Another plus is we have much more chance of having some embryos frozen so might have the chance to fund a sibling later on or if it doesn't work have another frozen embryo go thats still funded with this go on NHS.
So while im waiting im loosing as much weight as possible im on a VLCD so getting it off fast then once the bulk of its off i will follow a healthy eating plan - slimming world or something....
My BMI for the last round was 28 and its now gone up to 30.3! But with the last round of IVF I put on a bit and then Christmas didn't help. But im in the zone now and just want to be ready as possible to house this baby!
lots of Baby Dust to you all xx
