Just to get conversation started on here, thought I'd come up with a question. This article was probably the best description of how I feel about using DE, just expressed much better than I could put into words. It made me cry just a tad though, but not sad tears, just as a warning. www.fitpregnancy.com/pregnancy/getting-pregnant/i-used-egg-donor
I liked your article very much! I think the author has a pretty healthy perspective on egg donation. I was surprised to see she doesn't plan to bring up the donation with her boys for a few years though. My preference is to talk about it beginning very early on, even before the kid will really understand, so it's always part of their normal experience, not a confusing revelation
Low Ovarian Reserve (low AMH), poor egg quality, abnormal EFT (glandular developmental arrest, endo). TTC with open ID donor sperm. Non-bio mommy to DD (born to DW 2013). IUIs 1-7 = BFN. IVF #1 Sept 2014: 8R, 5M, 3F, 5 day transfer of 1 morula = BFN. IVF#2 Jan/Feb 2015 13R, 11M, 9F, 5 day transfer of a 5AA blast, BFFN. FET#1 (DW as carrier) May 2015 5AA & 4AA = BFP! DD2 born February 2016
emmuffy , I'm afraid if I put off telling too long, it will get harder for me to do so, which will make it more confusing for our child. I think what I liked best is how she arrived at her decision because I can relate a lot. I'm so thankful that we have this technology to have TPR options.

I thought I'd post our childrens' book list here too:
Egg Donation: The Pea that Was Me, Kimberly Kluger-Bell Surrogacy: Sophia's Broken Crayons, Crystal Falk Surrogacy: The Very Kind Koala, Kimberly Kluger-Bell Egg Donation: The Very Special Ducklings, Wava Cirisan All forms: What Makes a Baby, Cory Silverberg
Do we want to make this thread sticky and keep adding to it? It would be a good thing for new people to read through who are maybe not ready to start posting.
