New here

Hi everyone, I am new here. I am in my second week of IVF meds. Transfer will take place approx the week of May 8th. Dh and I are using donor egg and donor sperm. The reason for the donor egg are that I have Bipolar disorder and by using a donor egg I will not pass it onto the baby.Dh has no sperm at all. We have been on a waiting list for the last 2 years with an adoption agency, after talking with my doc and finding out a a baby would be fine if I didn't use my own egg We decided to try it. I also have PSOD.
The hormones have me going up and down. I am on Lupron 5 units and estrogen. I go back for the next ultra sound on May 2nd and should be starting the progestrone then. What kind of side effects has everyone else had????? None of my friends understand it all, because they all have kids. So the pain and anguish is something that they can't fully grasp. I would love to be having our own bio children but this is what God has given us and we have to work with it.
Thanks for reading and responding.
I am 29
Dh 35

Hi Princess

Like the others I have already posted to you on the General Forum, but there's no harm in saying hi twice is there?

When you feel like joining us there's a thread for all the girls going through treatment in May - we're affectionately known as The Blooming Mayflowers :lol:

Hope to speak to you again soon.

PMA and best wishes
