Response to veesha (child ment, preg ment.)
I have heard such encouraging stories from women who are mothers as the result of eggs from "older" donors. I think what's also stuck in my head is going against my dr.'s recommendation. I know he is interested in helping us have a baby, like we are. I guess, I don't want that feeling of, "Well, I suggested you go with a younger proven donor, so what did you expect," if try #2 isn't successful. Although we all know that this is not a perfect science and so many things weigh in on whether we get preggo or not, but if I am stepping out on a limb and against my dr.'s advice, I feel like I have to be sure, she's the one. In many ways, I feel like I'm settling because, she's the one who's available. Her profile is fine...but I guess I am looking for that incredible connection and gut feeling that she's the one, and I haven't gotten there yet. I feel like my reservations are more than her age, and the fact that she is considered to be unproven, but honestly, I can't put my finger on just what they are. I just haven't had that gut reaction yet. Hoping to get there soon, with her or someone... UGH...
And congratulations to you on your second little bundle of joy growing inside. Blessings to you and your family!
