Feeling scared

Hey everyone. So after going onto the waiting list for donor eggs last week, and feeling positive having made the decision, I am now in a cycle of 'what if this doesn't work' doom thoughts. We talked it over the other night and agreed that this is our last attempt due to cost and the impact on our life. But now I keep thinking what if this doesn't work and then that's it - we don't have a bottomless pit of money but neither can I accept that I won't have a baby. I need to snap out of it and be positive I know to get through the next few months and then the cycle , but I feel like I am staring into the abyss. I've also sent off for adoption information packs but know I'm not on board with that quite yet. So hard watching my husband as well, he's a worrier at the best of times but he's so negative at the moment :(

  • Hi Pinky_123. A difficult time for you I'm sure, but you do have this chance, and hopefully using an egg donor is the way to go. I just wanted to wish you both huge success and for a positive outcome. Thinking of you. Diane

  • Thanks Diane, not been on for a while and only just seen your message. Feeling pretty positive at the moment and off on a little holiday next week, trying to enjoy 'normal' life while we wait to get to the top of the list!x
