Re: Fresh IVF? Think twice.

Thanks for posting - we did 1 fresh/2 frozen/another fresh which were all unsuccessful but our last try - IVF #5 was a FET/5 day expanded embryo and it took (our son is almost 2!) - I truly believe your body is not ready to do a transfer after cycling like that...I've always told my husband I'm so m...

Re: April/May Cycle Buddies!

Hi Everyone - looks like I'll most likely be joining you in the April/May time frame - I have this cyst that will not go away...my doctor told me on Monday that it was the size of my uterus (which is about 3-4 inches wide) but it's IN my ovary :( Not good...anyhoo, I go back to the doctor in 4 weeks...

Re: FEB / MARCH 2011 Cycle Buddies!! can't wait!

Hi Everyone - I'm back for IVF try #4 - it will be a fresh cycle this time...we are applying for Attain IVF today & waiting to hear if we're accepted. The RE wants me to try one more time, and if this doesn't work - we have a friend that is willing to be a surrogate! It's all very surreal this time ...

Re: Summer cycle group

Just wanted to let everyone know - it didn't work out this time for my DH and me...we had a meeting with our dr. yesterday and he suggested 1 more go of it (next year) and then to strongly consider surrogacy...thanks everyone for all your support on this page :)

Re: Summer cycle group

Hi Everyone - my work has been really busy/I'm trying to find a new job...so I'm hoping something happens sometime soon so I won't be as stressed/frustrated with work. I started seeing a psychologist which has really helped...he's really nice and he's helping me deal with everything that's going on ...

Teresa - I had to laugh when I saw "come out come out wherever you are" :) It made me giggle sitting here with my husband while he watches some TV show I have no interest in. We went to Bone Fish Grille tonight for $5 bang bang shrimp (simply delicious shrimp!) and we just got home - I might have st...

Re: Summer cycle group

Teresa - just heard back from my RE yesterday - the only thing that showed up in all that blood that they took from me was "thyroid antibodies" so they're going to do another blood test, clean out my uterus before the next go-around and do the STD testing again (on me and DH since it's been a year)....

Re: May cycle buddies :)

hello everyone - just wanted to update you on the latest from my RE - they took 11 viles of blood last week to do a lot of chromosome testing and such to see if there is any reason why my body isn't accepting the embryos. I have one frozen cycle left with these embryos from the first round, so we'll...
