I am sorry you're feeling pressure from family, that is not fair. Only you and your dh should make that decision.

I know we would have been devastated to put so much money into the process and walk away with a bfn. This is why we skipped ivf with my eggs and did the shared risk de program. That took a lot of pressure off for us.

Our first cycle was successful, and there are several others here who only had to do one cycle, so definitely your chances are good.

(((((Hugs)))))

It is a really scary prospect to go forward with any cycle and DE is wrought with so many other emotional pitfalls. I felt like a total failure when our first DE cycle was a BFN. It was the fact that I already had no eggs thanks to POF and now a supposedly "good" egg didn't work either. I had to wallow a bit and then pull myself back together and go forward which was the best decision I could have made.

We never disclosed when we were cycling to anyone except my brother. He is super supportive and a fantastic cheerleader who doesn't make me more nervous. Heck, I didn't even "come out" here until after we had 3 positive betas because I was so nervous this last time.

It's all scary and we're here for you to vent whenever you need.

That sounds like a tough situation your BIL is in. I'm sorry that he's going through that.

I'm keeping everything crossed for you!
