Rick looks like we've made it past 100!

I would be curious to know of those who voted the relationship between religion/income/education & successful ART procedures, how many in high income,high education & religion have a bfp compared to low income,lower education & religion.

I have to say those household incomes are quite skewed to the high end of the scale. We would be located in the bottom half (though in the overall population we would be in the top half), which might explain why we had to go to such great extremes to save money to be able to afford an IVF and I had to take on a lot of extra work to be able to pay for it.

So far no luck with IVF attempts. Hope things take a turn soon.

Why isn't Asian a choice for race/ethnicity?  It was kind of weird to have to pick "other."

Advised Not to Get Pregnant: Circa 1994 or 1995 (I was FIFTEEN!!!)

Started Researching Surrogacy: August 2016

Found Embryos: November 2016

Matched with Surrogate: April 2017, all adoption put on hold (never matched with a child)

Surrogate's First Transfer: July 2017 (one FET) - BFP, but m/c or chemical (unsure, since second beta rose more than 60%, but third beta dropped)

Surrogate's  Second Transfer: October 2017 (one FET) - BFN

Surrogate's Third Transfer: December 2017 (double transfer) - BFN

 

Moving on to donor eggs...

 

New donor embryos available!!! Trying with them

 

Surrogate's Fourth Transfer:  February 2018 - was to be a double transfer, but one did not survive thawing, so single transfer; First beta - 685!!!!!; Beta #2 - 1594!!!  eusa_dance.gif yahoo.gif

First ultrasound (at 7 weeks, 2 days): Heart rate of 154 bpm, measuring slightly behind (just under 7 weeks)

Second ultrasound (9 weeks, 1 day):  Heart rate of 170 bpm, measuring small (again) at a little under 9 weeks.  Basically, it is growing at a good pace, just small - UPDATE:  heart rate is 175 bpm according to an email from the clinic!

Asian refers to the continent, and too big an area to be a race.

Yellow/Oriental and brown/South Asian and Middle Eastern are "races".

I see your rational.

Asian is also among that group.
South Asian - is not brown
Yellow/oriental is not a race (I have never checked I am a "rug")



My birth certificate does not state "oriental" (I was born in Japan /Japanese descent ) and have a USA birth certificate.
Again, I know you meant well.

The poll does not correctly represent all races. This does happen and I assume this poll was made by someone who is not in an ethnic minority or is not ethnically diverse.

Then use East/Southeast Asian (which will encompass Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Vietnamese, Filipino, Thai, etc...) and South Asian (Indian, Pakistani, etc...).  These cultural groups have more difficulty with IVF if they need donors because donating (to non-relatives) is culturally frowned upon.
