It took time to get used to the idea. Probably about a year. It doesn't take everyone that long. I turned 43 and I was just DONE with my OE's. I love my twins more than anything. They actually have a bit of a more special place in my heart than my OE DD although of course I love all of them. It is becoming more and more common to use donor eggs, even though it's not discussed a lot. Take your time, do your research, and search your heart. But my experience has been wonderful.
