~*~DE/DEmbryo/GC Check-in~*~ — The Bump

~*~DE/DEmbryo/GC Check-in~*~

This group is open to anyone who has already gone through donor egg/donor embryo/gestational carrier, is in the process of it, or plans on doing it in the future. 
This check-in posted each Tuesday.  If you?d like to be added to this group, please reply to this message, and I?ll make sure to add you for next week.  Welcome to the lurkers!  We know this can be a difficult journey, but we welcome you with open arms.  Let us know if we can answer any questions.
FACEBOOK GROUP: Yellow_Daisy has restarted a PRIVATE Facebook group (meaning no one can see it in your feed, that you are a member, etc.) for the ladies from IF and SAIF who are using/have used donor eggs/embryos or donor sperm.  If you would like to join, please page Yellow_Daisy and ask for an invite to the group.  This might be a nice way to keep in touch in a more private setting and address issues that may arise down the road.

Re: ~*~DE/DEmbryo/GC Check-in~*~

  • Thanks for taking the check in back over JM1977!

    Update: The girls started daycare today and I have been so nervous about it but they never even looked back.  I put them on the floor and they were engrossed in new toys.  Also out of the 6 kids their is another set of twins in the class too.

    QOTW: I love soccer so I really enjoy watching the US women's olympic soccer and am sorry the US men didn't qualify.

  • Status Update: Where are you currently with the DE/DEmbryo/GC process?

    We are back on hold-until January 2013.  We applied for and obtained financing for a frozen egg bank about 2 weeks ago.  But, we really are not sure about going with frozen and have the preference of a fresh cycle so that we are more likely to have frosties.  We would prefer either 2 children, or none at this point in our lives-and we don't want to have to pay more money OOP for another batch of eggs in the future.  We decided to go back to our HMO, also back to our previous clinic, so that the DE cycle will count as our last IVF cycle.  HMO dictates only one clinic that we can go to, so I guess that's where we will go.  My clinic just started using a frozen egg bank, so I will research that after my consult (won't give acess to database until after meeting with RE).  But, I really think at this time we are leaning towards a fresh cycle.  Set up an appt with my regular GYN for my annual exam and mammogram.  Trying to minimize the hoops we have to jump through before we can cycle in 2013, so that we can cycle as soon as referrals are in place.  Plan to choose our donor, and pay agency, so we can take that tax break in 2012.  Just when I think I know all the options, there always seem to be more!

    QOTW: What is your favorite sport in the Summer Olympics?

  • Here is my cycle update. I am fumming and just floored. Our donor was waiting to get a period to start stims. Waiting since July 4 or so. I had a little feeling but man I hate when my weird gut feelings are right. yep, she is pregnant!!! Really, uh correct me if not mistaken but if you are on a donor cycle and such, do you not refrain from sex? Really??? I am just speechless and full of words I am not going to type out!!! Ugh

    I am hoping things are going well for all of you and think of each of you all the time. I am on the facebook board since it is private and people can not see anything abut it. Its easier to get to for me.

    Hang in there everyone and I am still around!!

    2/25/12 ER and 11retreived, 2embryos, they did not grow, my eggs are no good, finally closure on this chapter

    Transferred one 1 via IVF on 10/21 and BFP on 10/30

    miscarriage at 6weeks Nov 19 2012
  • Update: Still NOTHING, and I'm pissed. We got matched on 6/28 with our donated embryos and still haven't received the paperwork. I had contacted the coordinator and never heard back, and then found out she went on vacation without ever getting in touch with me. I am looking into other programs because I'm kind of fed up.

    QOTW: I love watching volleyball, both beach and court volleyball. Then the gymnastics, swimming, soccer...I love it all really! I am an Olympics nerd.
