I ate lots of pineapple and trie...

My understanding of it is this: Children from donor eggs/embryos actually have three parents: Biological dad, Genetic Mom, and Biological Mom (the woman who carries the baby) . . . the theory is that Bio Mom's body expresses genes in the baby...

Janis: i've only had 3rd.... I had an embryo frozen after my first cycle, which ended up being a bfn... On my second cycle, nothing left to freeze, but I got my DD! Just had my DS three weeks ago. Again, all 3dt. Try not to worry ;)

Katie: Yay! She's here! Congrats! Lyd: my second trimester b/w came back as high risk.
