It's been a couple of weeks now since we found out our 1 and only egg didn't fertilise for an egg transfer. With only a 5-10% chance of getting a baby out from my eggs we have decided to go with donor eggs. This gives us a 40-50% chance of becoming parents. To be honest it was a bit of a no brainier we have always said we will get our family one way or another and being faced with what we just went through with a 95% chance of it happening again I just can't go through all of it again with those odds.
So now we are in another ball game! Lots of thoughts going round my head.... Positives are healthier eggs, stronger eggs, more chance of twins, less chance of misscarrige, no general as no egg collection. But negitives I'm feeling.... It won't look like me, won't have my family resemblance, what will the donor mother be like? How to we tell the kid it's not from my egg, at 18 it could find out who it's egg mother was, But the biggest one is the wait. 4 to 6 months. I'm a very impatient person lol!
Anyway in the mean time I am loosing weight (I put on a good stone since starting first IVF) and my BMI was 29 for IVF so need to sort that out. I'm trying to get it down to 25 and I'm on a mission! Going well so far...
I'm thinkng Christmas will be here in a minute then will only have a few months to wait.
Anyway just thought I'd fill you all in. Just waiting for a call from donor team at the clinic we have to have councilling and a load of forms to fill out.
Good luck to you all xx
