Hi, am new to this thread. Has anyone had success wit donor eggs? What is the success rate? I had a failed IVF in Nov 2011, BFN. I started a 2nd IVF last Nov, got 12 eggs but non ferterlized. I was even stimumated longer than the first. I was taking 3inj a day for almost 3wks and was hoping I will be rewarded for the pain. Sadly I was not. Anyhow I had my lattest ET on June 12, good quality eggs and a 2day transfer. I don't want to think if its good or bad but d doc transfered 4eggs to increase my chances. Am anxious and feeling things that perhaps r not there. Am assuming today is day 5 of d egg so in another 2 or 3day inplantation shld occur(fingers crossed). I feel some fullness in my pelvix and some mild bubling like I feel when I ovulate. I hv not left my bed since ET except to shower and use the loo. Am so scared the eggs will fall out (silly eh?). Am trying to be calm and I hope and pray this is my time!!
Hope you don't mind me gate crashing I'm after some hope/words of wisdom from you lovely girls... I've been reading through your thread and see some of you have had success and some are at the beginning off your journey and the end and I think we are going to have to move to DE.
We have had 3 cycles of IVF
1st 14 eggs - all immature end of cycle
2nd 1 egg - immature end of cycle
3rd 6 eggs - all immature end of cycle.
Our 3rd IVF was last week and I did kind of know that it may fail due to. The past two cycles but it doesn't make it any easier. Our RE said before we started IVF 3 that he would recommend DE if this cycle didn't work, we are going to see him on Wednesday so I just want to prepare, they've already tried changing protocol, drugs, delay the time for trigger etc so I don't know what else if any thing we could do
I'm just finding it so very difficult to get my head round not being able to have my own biological child, or how I would feel using DE... And would I worry that the child might want to find their donor, or that the child won't look like me... I don't mean to offend any one and I'm hoping these thoughts are normal at the stage I'm at now just after some reassurance I suppose thank you
BOMO: yes! I think it is SRM and not SCRM (oops!) and yes I think we may be at the same clinic!
BF: fx'd for you that you get your call very soon
Mells & N2L: How exciting!! It won't be long now
Doshima: Good luck on this cycle! I know you are not feeling positive about it but I hope you are wrong
LL: I'm sorry your cycles haven't worked out...I guess you never really know how you will feel about something until you go through it, but from what I've read from others who are in the same position they all say they love the baby just like it was their own dna child. As for myself, I know I will love our child because I'm an admin in an elementary school and feel so much love for so many of the little ones we have there; they come up and hug me with so much affection you just can't help but love them! I wish I could take every one of them home; knowing how I felt about these kids who have absolutely no genetic ties to me whatsoever I really felt I would absolutely love a child who was at least half of my husband. But that is just me.
Also, as for me, we have chosen our donor! DH was away at work when I got the password, so I sent it to him and he looked on his own. When we spoke later that night, he told me had picked one and gave me the donor number; it was exactly the one I picked! It MUST be meant to be! Just waiting on the donor coordinator now for a schedule of dates...
