need advice on child #2
Mon, 11-03-2003 - 1:37pm
Hi, I'm new here. I don't know how this works yet. Anyway, I have a 4 year old daughter conceived through IVF with my eggs. Now I just turned 40 and would love to have a 2nd child. But I am no longer a good candidate for IVF with my own eggs. They are recommending donor eggs this time. Does anyone out there have a child with their own eggs who went on to have another child with donor eggs?? Was there any difficulties for you emotionally between the 2 different circumstances? This is such a hard decision. I'm sure I would love the next child just as much. Yet I'm afraid at some level that I would feel differently. I'm sorry if this sounds like a silly concern. But I would love to hear from anyone who has been through this and how it felt for them.

Thanks for listening!!
