Hi all, DP and I will be having DE treatment in September and have been busy for months now getting everything organised and additional tests done. I’m currently on the contraceptive pill so that we can better predict my period. I’ll be starting the mock cycle in August and the real treatment in September. The clinic has just contacted me this morning to let me know the ‘great news’ that a matched donor has been found. And…I feel so strange. Upset almost. I think all this time of being so busy with tests etc have kept me distracted but now that it’s ‘real’…I feel lost. I’m happy of course that this is a positive step towards treatment and building our family…but I can’t shake the feeling of loss and certainty that my eggs are/were rubbish and just not good enough. I wasn’t expecting to feel this way at all. I’ve accepted how we would have to achieve our family..I don’t ‘grieve’ for the gene loss as it really doesn’t bother me. It’s more the literal inability to use my own eggs…I’m sure this feeling will pass but I could really do with hearing from some of you lovelies. Have you experienced this too? I’m actually thinking if I should seek out a therapist to chat this over with?
