I'm new to the forum, although have had lots of experience with IVF. Husband and I have been married over 8 years and have TTC for almost five. We've been through multiple IUI's and 4 IVF cycles using my eggs (I have been diagnosed with diminished ovarian reserve, two blocked tubes, and endometriosis). First cycle we had one embryo implant but it stopped growing and ended up as a D&C. 2nd cycle was a false positive. 3rd cycle was negative. 4th cycle was cancelled because I didn't have enough follicles.
Which brings me to where I am at now and the reason I am needing some support and a forum for thoughts...we are undergoing a Donor Egg IVF cycle now, with the tentative transfer date scheduled for the 18th. I am on estradiol and our donor is reacting very well to the stim meds and has been fabulous to work with. We travel to the location where our hospital is so leave town on the 16th.
As I know many of you understand, I am so scared of getting my hopes up - and yet I keep pushing forward with this process because I do always have hope. I just so badly need for things to turn out well. Ideally, we hope for a postive after this transfer and have some frozen embryos for possible future siblings...that's our dream outcome. I'm constantly worrying about the outcome, and I know that isn't good. After years and years of the ups and downs and dissappointments - and coming to terms with not having a genetic child of my own - I remain ever hopeful.
I welcome any feedback/support. Good luck to all...!

Know that you are not alone. Im pretty much in the same situation. have had failure after failure for the last 2 years of doing IVf, 5yrs of just TTC. I am not going to do donor egg but still have that nagging feeling of what if this doesn't work. This will be our last shot. I am completely done after donor. No adoption no donor embryo nothing, i am done. i just hate that it costs so much money. Could by a new BMW instead of buying donor eggs. it just sucks. The good part is that I have seen lots of ladies have multiple failed cycles, and then go on to donor eggs and have great success. Guess that is the only things that keeps me moving on.
Good luck to you. Keep us posted. Would love to hear another success story.
