Newbie Here...Need Advice

TTC second child for almost 3 years. First child was conceived without assistance at age 38. No complications with pregnancy. Currently in Donor Egg program due to high FSH. Allergic to progesterone in oil (sesame and olive), endometrin, can tolerate prometrium 400 mg 2x day. First donor - day 3 embryo - pregnant and miscarried between 6 -8 weeks. No frozen. Second donor - Fresh cycle - home positive, beta dropped, and then negative. Tried 3 transfers with frozen embryos - my body feels pregnant but then it is gone. Is that crazy to feel it? I can tell exactly when it happens. Doctor doesn't believe in testing for autoimmune and killer cells, etc. HELP! Desperate for next steps and advice.

Wow, I think you are way ahead of most of us on here. Wish I had some advice for you but still trying to conceive first child myself. My only advice is to keep researching on the internet and library for specific answers to the problems/failures you are experiencing. That has helped me a lot - not only with being up to speed on what to do and what to ask for with the doctors, but also for my own sanity. Good luck!

I second that! :D

Definitely. Your first child

Definitely. Your first child was at 38? At 41 many women have already entered into menopause. Be thankful, I am still waiting for my first.
