Hello all! It has been awhile since I have been on here, I had to recreate an account as I cannot get into my old one! No issues, everyone is probably new anyways ha-ha. I am starting to wrap my head around our next plan of attack on this crazy roller coaster ride and I enjoy talking to you all while its going on, it seems no one quite understands outside of this world! So we are planning on heading to Greece (Newlife IVF) in the spring, i will likely go for my testing in January and then follow along with whatever happens from there. I am wondering if anyone on here would be open to discussing their experiences with that clinic (if anyone has been there) and experiences with Egg Donor IVF. This will be my first time with Donor eggs and my first time going international, to say im nervous is an understatement!
Anyways, happy to be back and hear about/from everyone! This is such a great thing when going through such a huge process.
