Oh, CRM, I'm so so sorry.

Dang. Didn't see that one. Can you send me the donor ID when you find it?

I'm new here, so pardon my butt-in.

Here's my favorite: "don't worry, there are women in their 40's still having babies." That one just makes me want to punch someone in the face.

Welcome! I got a version of that even before we knew we were having problems: Oh, you've got YEARS of time left (I was 29). Okay, maybe but maybe not. And now we are going through IVF and odds are very much effected by age....

We started trying and knew we had problems and getting help when I was 32. My MIL said "She has 20 years left!" Whatever, nutjob! Yah, sure, I am gonna be popping out babies at 52.

I heard the opposite. I started IVF treatments at 35 and heard from people "Are you sure you want to start all that at your age?".

OT...Sri Radha, I was reading your signature...good luck w/your August transfer.
