Just kinda lurking here in the 2ww from my last fresh IVF cycle - we have 2 on ice and then onto donor egg. This process is so hard. I have no idea what it is like to be pregnant - at 39 1/2. I did 1 fresh and 2 frozen when I was 28 years old and they didn't take either. I just hope, hope, hope that donor will work for us if this doesn't. . . I think I will be so devastated if not because for us this is our last step in this painful journey.
My RE in Phoenix tested me for PAI-1 and it was too high so had me on Heparin and Metformin. Finally this cycle RE here agreed to the Heparin.
Did a bunch of research today because I constantly have to have a plan B because I just can't accept not being able to give birth and have a child for myself and DH. Attain IVF program seems to the be way to go but there was one shared donor program that looked promising too - I'm in Orange County, CA - any advice for programs in this area? I'm totally depleting the last of my life savings for this - no insurance that covers infertility as a small business owner most of my adult life.
Am I crazy for starting this research while still in the 2ww - or just obsessed!!
Thank you for posting all your info - it is invaluable to those of us obsessed!
