I posted this down below in other thread I started, but not sure if you would see it so I am reposting it in hopes you will be able to respond...
I thought it was interesting that you went to Reno for your donor embryo. That is the clinic that I have always worked with. After my failed IVF cycle even though I really knew it was just my failure I still wanted to blame the clinic. I felt like they way overstimmed me which contributed to my embryos all being so bad. They basically told me to get a puppy after I failed. I continued to work with them afterwards, but every time I went in there the nurses kept reminding me of how old I was and that it just gets really hard when you are old. I was only 36-37. I have numerous people who live all around me that had their kids in their late 30's up until 45. I have been trying to complete my family since I was 25 years old. I did not choose to be this old. I just have numerous issues going against me. So when I did get pregnant with my "miracle" baby I so wanted to just rub it in their face that I was successful. I told them that I could do it and I did. And then we lost the baby and I felt so devastated. It wasn't b/c my egg was old it was b/c of something else wrong with me that they never diagnosed.
Fast forward to the present.....I recently decided to call them just to see if they happened to have a waiting list even though I really refused to ever go back there and they do have a pretty good program. I have called other clinics that aren't as close, but none of them have embryos available or a waitlist or anything. I did find out about California IVF and it sounds like a great program, but not really the right one for me. I would prefer to have some contact with the donors, but if not I atleast want to know that the embryos were created with a lot of love and desire to have a family.
I would be interested to know more of how your experience was with the clinic in Reno. I have called and talked to them a couple of times, but haven't made the appointment. I am already their patient, but I am not sure how much that matters. Well if there is anything else you can share I would appreciate it.
