Hello!!! I'm new here but not new to IVF! My first cycle was canceled so this is my second cycle and I'm using DE. My donor's retrieval is on schedule for 9/24 and I'm having a 3dt! Si it's getting close and I am sooo nervous. I guess what I wanted to say to all you ladies is good luck!!! Age is just a number, we can do it!!

Sharon:


Welcome.


Are you a SMBC to be using DE?

Oh God!!! Whats SMBC?? Anyway, I'm 44 yrs old and have 2 beautiful natural children from a previous marriage. Like many of the ladies here I remarried in Sept 08 and he has no children. So, I did my first IVF in June and it was cancelled cause I ovulated early. Knowing I'm suffering from "Old lady Syndrom" I went straight to a donor cycle and here I am!!! I couldn't bare the thought of another canceled or unsuccessful IVF with my own eggs, I only had like 3 follies with stims!

Jessica: Thanks so much!! So funny we have the same profile, I think now a days there's alot of us "cougars"...LOL!! Are you thinking about going DE? You are a much stronger woman than me because I would'nt be able to handle even one BFN so I hope this works!!! Today I will be going to the docs for my last u/s and labs!! My donor is hopefully going to trigger this Thursday night!! I'm having a 3dt!! Please keep me posted as to how you are doing!! And stay strong girl!!

Welcome! I hope this cycle works well for you. I am also 44 and my doctor wanted us to go straight to IVF with DE, (this after my m/c in Jan) but we didn't want to go that route and couldn't afford it even if we did. So we are just doing clomid to help things a bit, but that is as far as it goes for us. I am still hoping for one more baby, but if it doesn't happen that is okay. At least that is how I am feeling at the moment, might be a lot harder when I come to the end of the road. Hopefully you will be one of next bfps around here, we certainly need some more!

Krista,


Did your clinic give you any indication regarding the wait time?

sorry for the hi-jack, Sharon...


Hi Kristi. They said "at least a month" but I waited for 17 months for the ones we used. I have no idea what to think. I DO think more and more couples are having success with IVF and thus have more embies to donate which could explain why all of a sudden we had four donor families to choose from after a year and a half of waiting. No idea what happened to the embies we didn't choose -- likely given to someone else.


thanks for thinking of me...
