I have so far been posting and reading the IVF board and just decided to look around for more that apply to my situation. I had started an IVF cycle which I cancelled because only two follicles were stimulated and I decided not to risk the money that I may need later on a procedure with better odds at success. The odds are bad enough as it is. I decided instead to try an IUI/DI this time. I am using an unknown donor which is an issue that I also struggle with and is what has delayed this process for me. I guess I have still been holding out for "Mr. Right" and have finally had to give up on that. All the issues that kept me from using a donor seem trivial now that it is likely that I won't have my own biological child and will need donor eggs as well.
The IUI was last Monday, 1/12, so I am now in my 2ww. I can test on Saturday 1/24. I am trying to be positive, but having trouble. I want it so badly, but don't want to get my hopes up only to crash.
My plan if this doesn't work is to try at least one more time to stimulate my own ovaries for IVF and hope for a better "turn out" the next time. If not, then I'll try the IUI one more time, then move on to donor eggs or embryos. That's my plan for now....who knows about tomorrow?
Anyone else single? Success stories welcome.
