Recap: after 4 Ivfs without success and still unexplained, it was advised by the RE I trust most to try DE. For those of you who 'know' me, I've had a really hard time making this decision. It came down to money unfortunately. We cannot afford more Ivfs with OE and then move to DE if no success. I've been slowing wading in the waters of DE. Browsing the donor sites, gathering info, doing consults with DE agencies. From the first website I was ever browsing (almost a year ago now!), there was a young lady I kept going back to. I met with her agency today and mentioned that she was my fave so far. She's a 5 time donor with 4/5 success rate as well as a child of her own. I was told if I chose her that this would have to be her last donation (max. Of 6 times allowed). Well, the donor agency got in touch with her today and she says she'd love to donate, but she's getting married and moving on feb 1. She would do a January ER, which means she needs to be on bcps by Monday. My head is spinning. Is this meant to be and giving me the much needed push I need to move forward? Is this a sign that it wasn't meant to be and I should keep looking and thinking? I don't even believe in signs but I don't know what to do! DH is also on the fence about 'rushing' ..but is it rushing if it's been a year now? Help me think this through!
