    I was an egg donor and on the day of retrieval I did it without anesthesia and they were able to retrieve about 30 eggs in that one session. Absolutely painful but that couple now has a handsome 7 year old son and a beautiful 5 year old daughter and I would do it again in a heartbeat.

    I have Turner syndrome, meaning I don't have eggs. So we found an eggcel donor and had our first embryo transfer last month. I got pregnant. We were so happy and excited. Sadly I miscarried at 6 weeks 5 days😢. Gearing up for our second transfer. Infertility is a journey. Hope second one takes❤🤞. So happy you finally have your rainbow baby😊

    I did the opposite , I donated eggs twice . I got all the things in the jay jay and felt very strange after . I never thought I would have children so I was good with sharing my eggs with someone that wanted children . I now have five kids and my kids trip out that they have dna out there .

    Desi- I feel your pain In this video! I donated my eggs to my sister 7 years ago. I had to go through IVF and do the trigger shot and retrieval. They were able to get 15 eggs and 9 made it to day 5 and turned into embryos. She had a few miscarriages, but I now have a beautiful 6 year old niece that looks exactly like me!

    I just went through egg retrieval a week ago, and out of 9 eggs retrieved, 6 fertilized and then 2 made it to biopsy. I'm hoping they're healthy and they implant. Honestly, the meds and procedure were easy peasy compared to the waiting for test results and watching the number of viable embryos go down. Fingers crossed!

We are literally witnessing you two live out and model your vowels to one another which is not seen in today's world. For better or worse! The way you filmed this, the angles, the interviews, the lighting, the simple yet captivating transitions and informative detailed conversations. I LOVE THIS! Praying for YOUR FAMILY!

The retrieval was the worst thing ever for me I felt everything and cried the whole dang time but I got 24 eggs and so far all of them have fertilized and are growing!! Getting the call tomorrow to see how many have continued to grow so I’m crossing all my fingers and toes that we get good news 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼

I wish I could do ivf but it’s not an option for my husband and I since we can’t afford it at all. It’s very hard to know that I’ll never be a mother without the help. But I’m so happy to know that the process worked for you and your husband. A baby is a blessing! Congratulations 💕😘

    I get flashbacks looking at all of this. You are such a strong woman and thank God you have a strong man by your side. We started infertility treatments when I was 39, and nothing work. Well, we weren't able to keep trying because financially we couldn't keep up with the treatments. No one, no one knows the suffering infertility patients go through. It hurts to think I couldn't keep trying. We even tried to adopt but it's so expensive. I'm older now and the chances of me having a baby are 1%.. We recently applied to foster kids and hopefully our miracle comes through fostering....but I will always have in the back of my mind the questions as to what if we were able to afford the treatments....etc etc. Wishing you nothing but blessings from above!!!

I don't know why we are always cheering up men when I mean being supporting is the least you can do when your wife is going throw this... No shade to Steven but the comments just got into my nerves. DESI YOU ARE INCREDIBLE ANS ALL THE WOMEN WHO ARE GOING THROW THIS... SAY RESPECT IS AN EUPHEMISM!!!!!!

    Makes me so emotional watching this, I tried for 10years to get pregnant. With having PCOS was very difficult. I thank God everyday that I now have a 9 year old. I'm now 42 and unfortunately never happened again for me, but it did and so lucky to have my daughter. Just wish it could of happened again. Your both so so strong, not at the end of the series yet but I'm so thankful you are sharing your journey so other couples out there can relate and not feel so alone. This happens to many many women, and needs to be spoke about more so we don't have to feel unworthy as women. You are both amazing and I truly mean this but I wish you all the health and happiness in your future because you both deserve it. Hugs from SUNNY England!!
