HELLLOO ladies IM back!

Hey there girls!

Ive had a much needed break and wow has it been quite eventful!!

Im back and will also be joining the third party repro boards tonight as well.

So its been about a month since my third failed IVF and ive had time to cry and be pissed and have about every emotion in the book. As well as developed a ulcer and went to ER. not fun! if anyone knows about ulcers is...they really really HURT! I did not know that. But im recovering and on medicine for it now so theres nothing like a medical induced bland diet to lose a couple of LBS! lol

Im getting back to working out again after a month off and feel much better.

Had a appointment with my RE today since last time I saw him I was cancelled. So I guess this was a WTF appt. but we knew going into this that we would start discussing the Donor options. they called me last week and said if I could come in a half hour early so they could spend more time than 30 min with us. They wanted a hour. I thought that was strange but went with it and we went in at 2 o clock today.

Well it goes like this and sorry if its long but its a lot of info.....

So the RE asks me...how are you feeling about everything...

I say, well im very disappointed and ready to move on officially to donor.Ive had lots of time to think about it over the course of 3 failed ivfs and I hope were on the same page as to where to go next.

He says ok... I have a little story for you.... We have a woman here who has gone thru 2 ivfswith us and has 3 kids... she has donated some of her left over embryos to a couple and they are currently PG with twins. The donor herself had one girl with her first ivf and twin boys with her second. She is willing to do a donor cycle and we think she is a perfect match for you because you have a ton of similar traits. Personality and looks wise. The kicker is she has a east coast family that are going to use her and they are willing to do a split shared donor cycle with you and your DH. The only reason we would consider offering this is because she produces amazing and large quanity eggs. Her last ivf she produced 25 eggs and 17 of those made it to day 5 high quality Blast. plus it would really cut down the costs because us and the east coast family share the cost right down the middle!!

OMG im freaking out.. not to mention I will get to see her picture tomorrow and I already saw a pic of her three kids and they are adorable!!!! We both do have a lot of similar traits. She went to a well known local college here and got her BS but decided to be a hairdresser. That's crazy because im a hairdresser too!!! we are the same size shape and height. both have brown eyes and blonde hair. Oh did I mention she starts meds JULY 2nd!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG times 2!

so.... now I need to get the financial taken care of. Im nervous and hope to god it works out because this is just so sudden and I thought I would be waiting forever and it would not be this fast!!! Im scared.. nervous...freaked....and so excited and fell really good about this.

Now I know this was a lot to process and my mind is still reeling! I may repost this on third party and man I have a lot of questions and I don't even know where to start! ok... going to go now and I just wanted to say im been lurking from time to time here and have missed you all so much! your the first people besides my dad I have told this news to and just couldn't wait to get on my computer and tell you all!!! I welcome and comments and advice if anyone had any!

Im so glad to be back and catch up with everyone!!

Re: HELLLOO ladies IM back!

  • Hi Lacy!!  We're doing a 4th and final IVF OE cycle in July and if it doesn't work we'll be most likely going the DE route so I may have questions for you :)
    Me: 33, Endocrine issues & FVL       DH: 32, Nothing 
    NTNP 2009-2012         TTC since 2012:
    • Clomid, 2 IUI cycles, and 5 IVF cycles = BFN
    • FET #1   August 2013 = BFP!     EDD 5/11/14
    • Jack dx at 19w1d with Dandy Walker on 12/16/13
    • Severe Pre-e /HELLP set in Jack born sleeping at 20w1d on 12/23/13
    • FET #2 --July 2014  BFP!  ---  EDD  4/5/15

    Jack has handpicked his sibling up there :)

  • Wow! That's great, Lacy!  How do you feel about all of this?  Are you ready to move on to DE, or were you considering a second opinion or any further consideration of your OE first?

    I'm cycling with DE in July so I'm right there with you but it's definitely not a decision you want to be rushed into.  There will be another donor if you decide to pass this one up.  On the other hand, if you and DH are really ready, the decision to move to DE can feel like a big weight has been lifted off your shoulders -- it feels great to have hope again.   

    Good luck whatever you choose.  And definitely intro on the TTR board if you'd like -- the ladies over there are very welcoming and have a lot of insight.

    Thanks Brooklyn,

    I have been giving everything a ton of thought for a while now. And like you said I really am ready and feel as if a weight has been lifted and this is a huge oppurnity that I feel I cant pass up. It just feels so right and considering I thought that we would move straight to Embryo Adoption this is a way we can still afford to do it with my Dhs sperm. So its a win for us ! I just pray and hope that this pans out the way im hoping but I still am a little cynical because with IVF Anything can and most likely will happen! so I will go in very hopeful and know that anything can happen!
