Are you tempted now @Green lady????
everyone. I have been reading along from the sidelines while we had family visiting from interstate.
Someone was querying stats for DE. When I was looking at donor embryos most sites I looked at quoted around the 60%+ mark for donor eggs. Donor embryos were slightly higher due to the sperm donor having no known fertility issues. It's not a guarantee but a lot better than the 5 - 10% for OE. The place I looked at had a 90% success rate for donor embryos... but that percentage was over 3 transfers (the clinic fee included up to three transfers).
@Lastchance75 that's just devastating. I really thought this was going to be it for you. Please give yourself time to grieve before you decide what to do. I'm sure you know how much you can endure but I also hope your heart heals enough to try again.
Welcome @Heyside. You sound like you well and truly fit the criteria for a 'Warrior woman'.
AFM: If anyone remembers me talking about my in laws you will know that we did not tell them about our IVF attempts as they are strict RC's. Well, we had a week long visit from them and a few days in my MIL decided that she would pronounce IVF to be acceptable. I don't think that she realised that's how little E was conceived but rather she decided that she would really like her only son to have more kids and that would be the only way her aged daughter in law (me!) could produce any more kids. I am flabbergasted! It's a massive turn around for her. DH was so paranoid about her finding out about our IVF attempts that he didn't want me to join a secret Facebook group just in case they somehow found out! Not that I'm complaining here. We do want another baby sometime in the future and this will make it somewhat easier to get by. If we do DE though we still won't talk to her about it. I think that will be a step too far! I want to have a little hysterical laugh now that they are gone though. We madly shredded anything with a Genea letter head as well as hiding my left over crinone in the linen cupboard before they arrived.
Well that is a turn up for the books...or bible in this case Luv!!!
Maybe the Pope sanctioned it over in Rome as well hey??? Of course, the fact she wants more Grandchildren didn't hurt the cause either!!!
Yes, that's going to make life a hell of a lot easier for you when it comes time for "Project Sibling". Yes, I don't think telling her about DE would go down well at all!!!
I must admit I had a little giggle imagining the paper shredder working over time while page after page got fed through it by your DH while you were rushing around rounding up boxes of Crinone and throwing them into the linen cupboard and slamming the door shut before she arrived!!! Kind of like the old Spray and Wipe ad's where they're running around like blue a r s e d flies hurriedly cleaning up before the guests arrive!!!
Pregnant for the first-time?
Not sure where to start? We can help!
