I have 2 gorgeous kids who are my whole world!!!   They are from egg donor IVF.    I would really really love to have another baby but it wont happen for us.   Both DH and I are from families with 4 and 5 kids.  I always wanted at least 4 :)  I am well aware of my 2 blessings and I thank God for them everyday... but my heart yearns for another one..  It would be so wonderful if we could just get pregnant!!!!   just wanted to get that out :)   I think I really need to stop watching One Born Every Minute episodes!!!  lol

 I'm sorry mama. You are right to recognize the blessings you have, but I think it's ok to feel sad about what we feel is missing in our lives too. I hope you're soon at peace.

thanks :)  and yeah I am ok with it most times lol.   Just sometimes when I see a newborn my heart gives a bit of a tug if you kwim.    Eric was born with MAJOR MAJOR issues, to the point that it took 2 years to really know if he would live.    There was very little joy or celebration about his birth as it was just panic, stress, doctors and surgeries and hospitals.   I do feel like I missed out a LOT.  Also DD was only 15 months at his birth.   Eric is now 8 and there will be no more babies and that is ok.   I will wait for grandbabies and spoil them!!  :)

What is stopping you from doing IVF again?

don't give up! I know a couple who were told they would never conceive without medical assistance, and after 12 years of trying, they got pregnant!!

we need an egg donor and dont have one :(  or we would have.   Heidi who is the egg donor to Olivia and Eric is too old to donate again.   I am in Australia and there are NO egg donors hardly at all.  you basically have to have your own

That bites. What about going to another country for it? You have no one willing to donate?

my apologies for your condition! if I lived there I would GLADLY donate an egg!

I've always wanted to be a surrogate, to be honest.
