Have you disclosed to any family members or friends that you will be using a donor to conceive?  Are they aware of the journey you've taken to get to this decision?

My sister is the only family member who knows. I haven't decided if I'll tell anyone else.

tallgal - how are you doing?


As for disclosure.. all family and many close friends know that we did donor eggs..  We will tell Jake, hopefully at a young age so if someone blurts it out then he will know whats up.

No. My dear husband, the doctor and I are the only ones who know, our child will be told first and then others will eventually find out.

Our parents know, because we needed their help to go through the process (we went out of state--ILs drove down with us for the consult to take care of DD1, and both sets of grandparents took care of her when we went own for transfer). They also found out right away about our bfp.

Our siblings don't know about DE, though some of them know about IVF.

We have some close friends we told about DE, more people who know about IVF, but most people don't know any details.
