Response to For those who have needed more than one DE for success
land on either side of the stats. I always have a back-up plan and pretty much have it set in action if things don't go as planned. It took me four donors before I was successful. I never cried or felt why me, I just continued to put one foot in front of the other and kept the goal in sight. Perhaps it comes from my training in athletics, to just do what it takes and if it isn't positive, I don't have time to waste on feeling sorry for myself. It is too much a waste of time and energy.
We are not rich and were living off of one teacher's income at the time. Our insurance did not cover fertility and the clinic we were successful with was on the other side of the country. We did what needed to be done. Used zero interest credit cards and mileage credit cards. Refinanced three times. I will say that we were blessed in that home values had increased at that time. We are a bit upside down on our loan now, but it will be fine in time. We survived with one car for eight years. That car now has 299,573 miles on it. Our house needs repairing. All of our friends moved up to bigger homes on lakes and golf courses and we are in our same modest, starter home. But, the outcome... three amazing children, which are priceless.
I hope that you are successful the first time, but if you are not, you do what you have to do. My favorite saying..."Do you give up easy? HELL NO!!!"
