fulloffaith, the kiddos are soooo cute...if only they weren't in Gator gear! Come on now
I just had my retrieval today and have no clue how many will fertilize, if I will get pregnant, have left overs embryos, etc. However, DH and I have talked about it a lot and donating to another couple is really our only option if we have too many. I told DH we had to make a decision on that before I would even consider doing IVF.
I have my personal beliefs on life, but I really wasn't sure how I felt about essentially being biological mother to someone else's children. As an adoptive mom, it was hard to picture myself on the other side. However, DH said something that really made me think. He said that we have been so blessed through adoption and how great would it be to give that gift to someone else? I have found at least one agency that will allow the donating family to choose the adoptive family if that's what you desire.
That being said, I hope we are not placed in this situation. I would rather use them all myself, but we'll see what God has planned. We already have two kids and planned on only one or two more. Despite our issues being MFI, if this IVF works, DH is getting fixed!!
