About to start second round of IVF with donor eggs


Hi everyone,

Thought I would give up an update on our progress...

So we have been back on the waiting list for another donor for almost a year, had a call from our clinic mid March this year to advise of us some different things and to say we aren’t far off from getting another donor..

Than had a call on 24th April to say they had found another donor, an egg sharer this time and would we like to start another cycle of IVF.

We’ve been waiting for what seems like forever for this to happen again, it was a year pretty much to the day that we had our first round so feels quite strange to be starting again.

I’m feeling nervous for this second one, it feels a bit different. I know what’s to come with treatment for myself, medication, tests and being prodded and probed again, however that doesn’t faze me all that side of things.

It’s more nerves and anxiety if this time it could be successful, we’re hoping for the best but preparing for the worst. You just don’t know what is going to happen with IVF, literally anything can happen whilst going through treatment and you just have to deal with it, physically and mentally.

We’re staying strong, positive and hopeful 🤞🏻🍀😬💗

Good luck. My little one was born after second round of donor egg ivf in January. I’ll be sending you some positive thoughts and wish you so much luck xx

Ahh that’s amazing , congratulations!

It’s so good to hear success stories of the same IVF that I’m going through, feels like there is hope that it can happen 😀💗 x

It really can. My best advice is don’t be ruled by your ivf cycle... carry on with life and enjoy the process. I can’t wait to tell my little miracle that I was once injecting on a train after a night out eating food and drinking fake cocktails! xx

Thank you, yeah we try to carry on as best we can and live our lives still, we don’t let IVF rule our thoughts and feelings. Life has to keep going and I tell myself I will be a mum and will experience pregnancy one day, I just have to be patient and it will all be worth it in the end 😊 xx

Good luck xx

Wishing you lots of luck xx

I wish you the best of luck for your second round! xx

Do you mind me asking if you’re NHS or private? We have an appointment to set donor icsi in motion next month. I didn’t realise it can take so long to find a donor.

Thank you 😊.

We’re on treatment with a donor through the NHS at our local maternity hospital, our first round was funded, but now our second round we have to fund ourselves and any future rounds we would also need to fund ourselves.

We had been waiting a year in May for another donor and to start again, it’s definitely not a quick process xx

Good luck x 😘

Wishing you so much luck with your cycle!!🤞🏻xx

Good luck xx
