I found out 4 years ago that I am infertile and am not producing anymore eggs. My husband, of almost 7 years now, and I got an egg donor and against all odds got pregnant. I had a very rough pregnancy because of high blood pressure, but was able to deliver naturally only a month early to a healthy baby boy. Well, that was Jan of 2007 and since then we have thawed the remaining 3 embryos, but only one made the thaw and it did not take. I would LOVE to do the donor thing again, but the money is just not there. I would like to borrow, but my husband only likes to pay cash for things(which is usually a good thing) and since we don't have it, the IVF is out. It has been almost 8 months since our last try and I am still crying at almost every pregnant mom with other kids. I have been to my OBGYN to talk about if there is a possibility that I might have some eggs, but my hormone levels support the same as before....no eggs. My friends are all getting pregnant again and again naturally and here I sit with money being our only issue.....SUX!! I cry every time people ask me when we are having another one, or are we going to try again. Is there ANYONE out there struggling with this also? Why does money ALWAYS dictate our lives?
