hi, MLE,
you're 33? You've got a lot of time! I think the odds with donor eggs go up dramatically -- especially with the second round. And, this time you should have some back up embryos in case the first round doesn't stick! My place has some counselors .. couldn't hurt to speak with one to unravel some of those pent up feelings. I know it can feel old to hear "stay positive", but a year from now, you could be holding that baby.... so, stay positive!

all the best,

I'm with you on having those moments, long moments, of doubt.

First of all, don't apologise for feeling hopeless---you're human and this is a VERY draining process. We went through 6 years of IF treatments w/ 7 IUIs, 2 IVFs with my eggs and 4 IVFs with donor eggs and 4 m/c before we finally were blessed with our miracle.

I can't tell you how many times I said I was done...but then I'd rally and we'd try again. This last try---what i call "Lucky #13" truly was going to be my last because I am 45 and knew I just couldn't keep injecting my body with hormones. However, lucky #13 WORKED and now that we have our little one
