What a great gift to give your sister! There is a thread in the "Finding Your Tribe" area for people doing surrogacy that you might want to look for.

No advice as I haven't been on your side, but as the mother of an amazing child conceived through egg donation, I wanted to give you a <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"> and wish you all the best during this process. You are doing a wonderful thing for your sister!

thanks for the support! i traveled 5000 miles yesterday to make it to my family and met with the fertility docs yesterday, and he gave us the go ahead! seeing the hope and joy in my sisters face made all the doubts and fears just melt. and thanks for the direction- i will look in finding your tribe!

I donated this January. It was a great experience that I am SO happy that I went through. I was so happy to give that gift to someone. I however will never know if it worked for the couple. They wrote me a long letter and gave me a cameo the day of the transfer, and their 5 yr. old drew me a picture. It was so cute. I hope they are having a successful pregnancy whoever, and wherever they are. They would be due around Oct. 10th.

I'm a traditional surrogate (using my own egg) but not an ED, no. I do know of an awesome support forum for EDers, so if you like, PM me and I'll give you the address for the site. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I want to donate eggs, but no one wants mine. The local services say I'm too old (I'm 32).

Eh, you're borderline for most agencies, yes. BUT (big but here!) there are many egg donors that donate independently. As long the intended parent's are fine with your age, most RE's will work with you. If you want more info, PM me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
