Hi all...just joined your group and was hoping that someone would want to share their story with me just for moral support. I'm such a mess of emotions. I have been ttc for 3 years..finally went to RE and decided to do IVF..by this time I was 40...it worked on the first round. We had 4 eggs which was a lot for me (fsh went from 8-21)we implanted 3 and 2 took and grew...twins. Then we lost one at 7 weeks. we were sad but had one still...then we lost that one at our 13 week us (no heart beat) 2 d&c's to follow...horrible. So then we tried again and got 5 eggs and only 2 embryos made it..and neither took. Now I'm 41 and the RE said ...my egg quality will most likey cause more loss...so DE was our best option. Now we have found a donor from the registry that we like, and are scheduled for ER on 3/31 if all goes well. Here's my questions though? What can I expect as far as problems go? Did any of you run into problems with using DE? What kind of things can go wrong and cause failure using the Donor Egg cycles? I don't want to assume it's all going to be wonderful and then get hit with an unexpected issue...I have no idea what to expect. All I know is that my emotions are up and down. One minute I'm excited and hopeful and the next minute I'm sad and depressed. I didn't realize how hard it was to come to terms with this...and yet it's such a great option -i won't have to worry (too much) about chromosomal issues due to bad eggs...what a blessing that will be.
