Just that really, wondered if anyone was in the same boat and waiting for a match? I was advised 3-6 months and so far it’s been about 4 weeks and of course I’m already hoping it’ll be sooner. Just trying to get as fit and healthy as I can. Anyone also waiting?

Ooh, that's quite a short wait, what clinic are you with?

I'm actually in the middle of treatment as a recipient at the moment, so not currently waiting, but I know the feeling! Hang in there, the time will pass.

Hi @Persipan we’re at Herts and Essex, I’ve had all my OE treatment there and now made the decision to move to DE. How’s your cycle going so far, are you egg sharing?

Yep, I'm an egg share recipient. I actually just had embryo transfer yesterday!

Good luck *@persipan*.

Good luck Persipan and hope your wait is not too long Sponge.

I will be a DE recipient later in the year in Spain.

How’s the tww going @Persipan? If you don’t mind me asking, how many eggs did you get from the egg share.

Thanks @JeNeBaguetteRien, will this be your first DE cycle? This will be mine following 4 previous OE cycles.

Hi Sponge, yes it will be my first DE cycle.

My first IVF was cancelled before egg collection due to a poor response, the second I did get 2 embryos but with a 2 day transfer.
I had a consultation with a different UK clinic and also with IVI in Spain, and DH and I decided to go there.

The clinic said it was up to me to try again with my own eggs or not but due to low AMH and antral follicle count, I think I'd prefer to go straight to DE and hopefully increase the chances of becoming parents. A friend has the most gorgeous baby conceived using DE, let's hope for a not of luck for us on this thread.

Hope you are getting through the wait Persipan.
