after 8 years trying, i need an embie so bad

(12 posts)(7 voices)
  1. Ladies,
    i have been around for 8 years and nothing has happened, not one day we have not thought of having a baby, but now we have decided that donor embies is the only way we can try to have a baby, we cant afford another ivf, dh is in wheel chair i am a teacher but have no infertility coverage, and we dont feel that parents would choose us to adopt their embies, if you know of any program in Texas or near Texas, please let me know, i am really really desperate, i wouldnt post this if i werent, sorry for the venting.

  2. You can try the NEDC. I know their costs run around 6 to 7000 all said and done with homestudy and medications and appointments and travel etc.

    Otherwise, here's a list of embryo donor clinics:

    embryoconnection.org/lists.asp

    On that page, click on "Clinics List"

  3. Don't give up and don't feel sorry for venting, everyone does it... if we didn't we'd lose our minds. Reaching the point you are ready to go with donor embies is hard. It isn't that you will love them less but it is a difficult milestone.

    Once you have had a while to leilabept it you won't hurt as much. Trying to get eggs from my ovaries was nerve wracking. It was not just the cost. The fear of birth defects due to my age and stimming drove me up the wall.

    I don't know if this helps but like you I do not feel I am someone who would be picked but I am doing FET in just over a month. I took an agressive stance and called every clinic I could asking if they had donor embryos. I found a bunch of them. No complications, no hassel and affordable. The one I am going with is $5000 but I have found others as low as $3000 that are within driving distance of my home. And the embies I am getting are top quality... 5 day blasts with the donor of the eggs 31 years old.

    You can easily get just as good if not better if you do the leg work. Google fertility clinics and start calling those closest to your home. You will find someone, I promise.

    But before you do that check out NEDC. Mrs Bonsai speaks VERY highly of them and I do not think the issues you have mentioned will make a difference to them.

  4. Pickles,as you know,Im sure,my embryo died at 6 weeks 2 weeks ago,so now<br />Im in search again,need embies too and would really appreciate it if you would let me know where you found the $3000 ones,pls email me to mailto:uflower2000@yahoo.com

    Thanks so much and good luck to you and all the ladies in here.

    Natasha.

  5. I am in Texas, dh cant travel because he is in a wheelchair, it is extremely hard for him, do you know of any program or clinic in Texas? i am 37 so i am pretty desperate. please let me know if you know of something. good luck with the FET

  6. Try the links in this thread:

  7. I'll put this link here because it is the one I used...

    I don't know which is closest to you but try these. The ones that are in or tied to ones in Mexico need to be investigated carefully because I remember one or two having a bad reputation.

  8. Thanks so much pickles!

  9. We have 5 children and are done but we had 3 embryos still. I went to miracles waiting and found a great family!I strongly recomend this them!

  10. I scanned the miracles site and am wondering how the process works when people get matched? Could a person travel to the clinic where the donated embies reside and have them transferred? What costs would one pay for ? the embryo transfer fees? what if they do not make the thaw? Thanks

  11. Figured I'd just mention this, though I would completely understand if you decided against - for the NEDC, you do all of your routine work (u/s, bloodwork etc) in your home town - and then you go to NEDC for mock transfer and transfer. I don't see why, if you really wanted it, you couldn't have your dh leilabompany you to all the appointments locally and then at transfer time, you go to TN and your husband remain locally. He could be present in consults over the phone and be available but not physically present. There's technically no reason you can't do the travel part alone, though given the emotions of it, I can imagine why you wouldn't want to. If it ends up being the correct route for the two of you in finding your embryos, it might still work. In the end, being apart on that day is only little compared to doing the meds together, the pregnancy together and a lifetime of parenting together....

    Please note: The NEDC now requires 24 hours bedrest immediately following transfer. So if you go, and your hubby cannot come, at least bring a friend who can help get you food etc, and move your suitcase etc, and give you your shots etc . . .

    I know they now require it, we just had a transfer on 3/24 (btw, it did not work, we are not pregnant).

    We will be trying again in the fall. I'm trying to lose 35 pounds before August first.
