I just got the awesome news that we have an egg donor and will be travelling to Greece in January for our transfer! I wanted to see who else out there will be going through a transfer in Jan? I haven't had a transfer in 6 years so i'm so so ready to get there and do this again and I cannot believe were 6 weeks away we have been talking about going to Greece for about 3 years!
I have heard several times that the average is 3 transfers before it takes, I did a fresh transfer followed by a FET 6 years ago. Do you think this will play into the rule of 3? or is it a "restart"? has anyone had a successful pregnancy with a similar gap between transfers? We are doing egg donor and our donor is only 22 so that gives me a lot of hope as well!
anyways looking forward to hearing about some of you who will be going through this at the same time!
