Pregnant at 36 with donor eggs, anyone here on the same journey?

I just got pregnant from my egg donation treatment and I would like to share stories with new mothers of a similar situation.

Well congrats. You are so young to have to go the donor egg route!   Most mom's I know that have gone that route don't have to do so until late 40's.  When are you due?
Hello my doctor said my ovarian reserve was diminished and suggested IVF.  I failed at first but I'm so happy we succeeded with donor egg.  Im due March next year.

We were looking into donor eggs and diner embryos. We didn’t go those routes but we did use a diner. If you want to chat send me a PM. I have two babies from donors.  They are 5 and 3.  
Hello Belle yes I'd love to chat.  Wow I am happy for you.

Congrats with your pregnancy!! May all the following months of pregnancy pass healthy and happy for all of you) I'm not in the very same boat with you. Though we achieved pregnancy through IVF too. This is our baby#1. With my ex partner we ttc for 13 months with no joy. He even didn't want to see a doc. ( I was 38 then, never prego before). We broke up - me left alone, ripe age and WITHOUT kids..I'm 40 now, happily married to a wonderful man who helped me through the nightmare. He's been the first to say ''we need a good doc's help''. He was also the first to pass the tests and all needed analyses. He has always been my rock of support. And when I felt I'd never become mom after our #1 cycle failed, heartbroken and miserable.., he managed to make me feel I CAN do it! I know the roller coaster you've been through, honey. And I'm so happy to hear this awesome news from you. May god bless you, your LO and all your family.
