I am almost 19-week pregnant with a donor egg baby. I am so happy and grateful to live this after after years of fertility treatments! I was close to the "Donor cycles due in 2015" for a while last year and really enjoyed the camaraderie and support there so I thought we should continue it for the ladies due in 2016... Interested?

Thanks Quandry! It's interesting to keep sharing with people we have followed and who have followed us for a while like you and I have (for what? 2-3 years now?). I am always happy to hear from you:)

We will be happy to share with brand new people as well!

I am not due or cycling but wanted to extend my congratulations to you Lola. It is great to hear success from people who have been on here for a while, like me! I also admire those who take other people's feelings into consideration when posting their success, so thank you for being considered.

It has been a while Lola. At least three years I think?

Last night I had a dream that I wanted another child... And I do irl, but I'm wavering back and forth. It's so hard to choose to get back into the roller coaster. And I'm just not quite ready yet. Not till our Lo is weaned at least till a year...

me 26, dh 32

ttc for almost 3 years

one ectopic pregnancy, lost one tube- 2013

one miscarriage- 2014

poor egg quality, unstable hormone levels. AMH dropped from 4 to 1.5 in 4 months.. had it retested and came back at 1.4

RE predicts that i will go through menopause around age 30..27 or 28. Suggests one round  of ivf and then it is time to move onto another option.

1st ivf booked to begin in september

Sept 17- B/w and U/S, Starting Stimulation

Clinic Error and IVF cycle cancelled in October- took some time to think about my options

 

November- Moving onto donor eggs-

donor #1 selected through little miracles

Dec 29- Lupron Injection

Jan 22- Estrace Started

Estimated Retrieval day for donor is Feb 6. 5 days into the cycle, donor was found to have cocaine and marijuana in her bloodstream- cycle cancelled.. heartbroken and very disappointed

Donor egg cycle round 2 - let's hope things go well this time!

Donor #2 selected... Retrieval in April!

Amazing Grace: Thank you for your message. I know you have been through an awful lot... This process is so tough. Especially that you never know if or when it will eventually work... It took me 4 IVFs with OE and 3 transfers with DE embryos to get here... And although things have been good and I am really happy, it's hard not to feel a bit nervous about my pregnancy... I know you understand:)
I am certainly wishing you the very best :)

Quandry: Yes, it's a tough decision. It's good to take your time to decide and to enjoy what you have with your LO:) I am leaning towards just one child for us. My husband is in his 50ies and getting where we are was already so tough... But I am not closing the door completely yet; I also think it's too early to make a final decision. One idea I've had is that we could consider adopting if we realized we really wanted another child...

Hi Lola!
Wishing you the very best!!! IF is such a looooong draining journey as we all know. Is this thread open to any type of donor or exclusively for DE? We were couldn't afford DE here in the states so I've gone thru 10 fresh cycles with PGS (for genetic reasons) and 2 FETs with DS since my husband has zero swimmers. We have a 21 month old daughter and I'm 17 weeks with a little boy (different donor).
DH 40, ME 39 expecting our first (it's a girl!) 4/6/13 after 11+ yrs TTC and 4 back to back lossesI have endo, PCOS, both gene mutations MTHFR, slightly elevated thyroid,blood clotting disorder, had endometrial polyps, born with large uterine septum that was removed and urological abnormality that will cost me my kidney in a couple yrs.14 GYN surgeries, and 6 other surgeries including multiple lumbar surgeries IVF# 9 W ICSI and PGD, stims started 7/1/13, ER 7/14/139 embryos sent out for PGD 4 came back normal 2 girls & 1 boy survived andwere transferred on 7/19/13. 5DP5DT faint positive and each day getting darker.8/4/13 5 weeks emergency scan due to severe pain, shows enlarged ovaries and ruptured cyst. we also saw a tiny gestational sac, put on restrictions and basically can do nothing 8/15/13 2nd scan @ 6.4 weeks shows strong little heartbeat and enlarged ovaries, still on restrictions. 8/23 urgent scan @ 7.5 weeks for clotting and bleeding showed heart beating away and growing baby, no bleed seen in around baby or in uterus. Continue restrictions, DC baby aspirin continue all other meds including Lovenox and 4th scan scheduled for 9/4. Ended up having 6 massive bleeds and taken off Lovenox. Spent the entire first tri on bedrest. taken off PIO, Estrogen and prednisone at 12.1 weeks. First OB appt 13.1 weeks. Spotting, bleeding and some massive bleeds thru the entire 1st tri and part of the 2nd. 2nd tri had placenta previa and cervical shortening issues. Made it to 26 weeks which wasn't far enough along to have steriod injections, more rest. Made it to 28 weeks and cervix was long enough not to be too concerned, steroid injections are on hold. Was officially off bed rest @28 weeks. 30 weeks lost 8lbs. 32 weeks gained 8lbs and the start of preeclampsia. Currently being monitored very closely and seeing several specialists to find out when exactly we need to deliver. Lots of tests done and a couple ultrasounds to date (33.6 weeks) 02/22/14. After being carefully monitored several times a week DD was born via c-section 3/13/14. 5.9lbs, 18 inches, spent 6 days in NICU born @ 36 weeks

Good morning ladies!

Ollie: Thank you. I am doing very well at this point: no bad symptom, having energy, enjoying quite a bit of prenatal exercise:)

Feisty: I think there are many similarities for couples using an ED or a SD so you are definitely welcome here! You are 17 weeks so just a bit behind me, how are you doing at this point? For myself, the second trimester has really been much better than the first one!

Nerd4Life: Thank you so much! For your message, but also for being a donor... Words can't express how happy I am finally going to be a mom and how much we already love our little one... We are so grateful for people like you to have given us this opportunity. I am sending you a big, big hug :)

Lola I'm glad to hear your doing well in the second tri. AFM not so lucky. I had MS the entire pregnancy with DD, was on bed rest the first 28 weeks with flash floods (hemorrhages), short cervix, placenta issues and last but certainly not least pre E. I'm having similar issues with this pregnancy too. The OB is hoping I can make it to 36 weeks again. I will be having another c section. I know it's a small price to pay to be lucky enough to have these babies. Donors have absolutely no idea how much they change our worlds.

TYSM for being a donor. You are truly an angel.

Awww, you're both warming my heart :) Thank you for your kind words. I'm so looking forward to following this thread and am hoping to find out this year if my last donation led to a pregnancy for the IFs (they froze the embryos while they looked for a surro to help them complete their journey). 

 

Sending everyone sticky baby dust!

Feisty: I am sorry you are having issues with your pregnancy. Are you on bed rest now?
The only issue I have had is a sub chorionic bleed which made me bleed at 7 weeks and gave me a couple more spotting episodes (at 8 and 18 weeks). Because my blood is RH negative, I had to get Rhogam injections, but at the last US, they told me the bleed was now quite small and nothing to worry about. So all in all, I have been lucky... I have my 20-week US next week. I am excited about it but also hoping it shows everything to be ok :)

Not sure if this thread is open to me, as I don't know many of you, but I'd be interested to join? I am currently 11 weeks 4 days pregnant for the first time EVER after using DE. We're due August 3rd 2016. I'm involved in a 'regular' due dates thread, but I feel like our situation is different in a lot of ways. We plan to be very open with our child, but I haven't been sharing our DE story with anyone other than immediate family, so that (combined with our nearly 6 year battle with infertility) really causes me to feel a bit like an outsider with other pregnant women. We are so over the moon ridiculously excited but I know I'll benefit from connecting with others who can maybe relate.


Me: 30  DH: 32 - TTC 5+ years

 

Two failed IUIs in 2012/13

  • IVF#1 - 2013  super-O conversion from IUI because I over-responded. Retrieved 5 eggs, 5 fertilized, transferred 1 embryo - others deteriorated before freezing. BFN.
  • IVF#2 - 2014 I over-responded again. Retrieved 27 eggs (absolutely excruciating retrieval), 21 fertilized. All looked amazing. But by day 5, they had started to deteriorate inexplicably. Transferred 1 beautiful blast... but everything else fell apart and we had nothing to freeze. BFN.

After extensive testing, specialists believe that my eggs have an unexplained genetic/cellular issue. 

 

August 2015 - reserved an egg donor through LM and pursuing ED at VFC in Fall 2015!!!!

November 2015 - ED ER Nov 11 gave us 40 eggs! Nov 13 - 20 still look good graded 16-20. Nov 14 - 14 of freezable quality.

NOV 16 - Transfer Day! Transferred one gorgeous Grade 19 blast with six beauties in the freezer.

 

6dp5dt - th_abfn.gif  Feeling like all hope is lost (even though it's early) and hesitant to even bother testing again.

9dp5dt - th_abfp.gif We're on top of the world!!!!!

16DPO - Beta # 1 Nov 27th: 377!!

19DPO  Beta # 2 Nov 30th - 1639!!

December 17th 7wk U/S - Heartbeat 145, everything looks perfect!

January 21st - 12 wk U/S - Baby's a wiggler! <3

March 23rd - it's a BOY!!!!!

 

Due date August 3rd

Welcome Jzyla!

Yes, we would be more than happy if you joined us :)

Congrats on your pregnancy! I know what you mean by being "over the moon ridiculously excited" about it! I feel the same way :)

You are getting to the end of your first trimester, how have you been feeling?

I agree people who use donors have special considerations and it's nice to be able to discuss them with people in the same situation. We are also planning to be open with our child, but so far only 3 family members know we used a donor... I guess I was afraid of how the other family members would handle this info in front of our child... To me, she (we just had a confirmation our baby is a girl:) is priority number 1. I want her to learn about how she was conceived in the best possible context...

Welcome again Jzyla!

Hello!

I was happy to see this as I was wondering how you're doing Lola! I still come online every now and then and try to get updates. I still think about how others are doing with their journey. This forum has been such a great resource and support for me.

Congrats on team pink! That is exciting. I hope you're doing well and staying healthy.

Hello to everyone else as well!


Two back to back natural pregnancies with two miscarriages around week 8-9

Concluded poor quality eggs, nothing wrong with DH

Moved on to DE transfer

October, 2014: started protocol, thin lining therefore cancelled cycle in November

Have 5 mature frozen eggs.

 

Transferred 2 five day embryos on February 3. th_abfp.gif

Have one frozen embryo left.

March 10th: Saw one heartbeat measuring 7 weeks, 3 days

April 13th: 12 weeks, five days. Good results from initial NIPT.

 

October 7th: Arrival of Chloe via C-section at 37.5 weeks!

We are so fortunate!

Hi JayMac,

Really nice to hear from you:) How are you and little Chloe doing?

In general, I am doing well at this end, but I have had a few hiccups along the way. The biggest one is that I have placenta previa (meaning my placenta completely covers my cervix, blocking the exit). This means I have to be very cautious as I am at risk for bleeding and premature birth. So no exercise, no travelling, no effort and no sex for me :( It is unfortunate, but at the same time, I keep in mind that my little one is doing well which is the most important:) Also, with the uterus growing, it's possible that the position of the placenta becomes more favorable allowing me to do more and maybe, have a vaginal birth. Time will tell... I have a follow up US in a month, at 28 weeks.

So lots of reading, writing, cooking and baby prep for me right now!

I hope you, your partner and little girl are adjusting well to your new life:)

Hi,

We are slowly transitioning to this new lifestyle and new life at home! The biggest challenge for me has been functioning on little sleep. People talked about it during the pregnancy with the usual comments of "Get all your sleep now because you won't sleep for years,"

Now, I believe it! But it's totally worth it and chocolate certainly helps keep me going!

Chloe is a happy, relaxed baby for the most part I must say. She's just over 4 months, hard to believe. The first two months were a bit of a blur it feels now.

I'm sorry to hear that you have placenta previa...silver lining, at least you're not on complete bed rest, although maybe some days it might feel like that. Fingers crossed that as the weeks go on, it repositions itself to a better location.

Please take care. :)

Concluded poor quality eggs, nothing wrong with DH

Moved on to DE transfer

October, 2014: started protocol, thin lining therefore cancelled cycle in November

Transferred 2 five day embryos on February 3. th_abfp.gif

How's the placenta previa Lola? Has it moved up to a safer position?

How's everyone else doing? Pretty quiet thread here now!

Quandry: Thank you for asking:) The placenta was limit last time they checked (at 32 weeks) so they are checking again this coming Monday. If I understood correctly, 2 cm or more from cervix is a go for attempting a vaginal birth, less is a planned c-section... I imagine this will be the last check... Cross your fingers for me!

And yes, it's unfortunate this thread has been so quiet... Luckily, there are always several threads to socialize and ask questions here:)
