Hi ladies! I haven't posted in a while but welcome to all the new ladies. You are definitely in the right place and are in good hands. We used donor eggs since my eggs don't mature so it was our only option. I'm also in the US, in MA just outside of Boston. We were fortunate that we didn't have to g...

Oh Chris! I am so sorry for you! I know how difficult it must be for you, especially in the face of your sister's news. Just take time for yourself and stay away from all things baby. I don't know if you have a sweet tooth or not, but Coldstone Creamery has these yummy new ice cream cupcakes that mi...

I actually went through 3 rounds of retrievals and had no mature eggs at any of the retrievals. My doctor tried everything he knew of and believe me, he did a ton of research on it. He had never seen anything like it and he was only able to find one case study on the condition. I hate to be the bear...

Well, my first trimester all I could eat was cheese pizza so I can relate! I was hooked on red wine vinegar (had to have it on everything) but now I've moved on to sweets (dark chocolate works really well)! I'm hitting week 24 this weekend so it should be interesting to see what I start to crave nex...

When did you first feel your baby move?

Hi everyone! I'm at 20 weeks and I still haven't felt anything and I'm starting to get nervous. We did see him move on u/s on 10/30 but I just wish I would feel him. Did anyone else out there go past 20 weeks before they felt anything? Thanks!

Hi guys! I'm at 20 weeks now and I still haven't felt my little man move yet. Is there anyone else out there at this point that still haven't felt their baby yet? I'm wondering if I have felt something but just didn't realize what it was, but I'm starting to get nervous. We did see him on u/s on 10/...

Congrats, Kelly!! I love hearing such good stories. Glad you and the babies are doing well, though it sounds like they made a grand entrance. I'm sure you're settling in nicely but I can imagine how different things are with 2 babies!! Things are going well over here. Just hit 17 weeks and we're goi...

Hi Rosario, We had Harvard Pilgrim as well and we went to Boston IVF in Waltham. They were amazing to work with and my doctor (Dr. Alper) was awesome! He never gave up on us and we're now expecting in March. They also have the Domar Center there which offers accupuncture, yoga and mind-body classes....

I am definitely peeing more than I usually do which is kinda a bummer since my commute is an hour and I don't know what I'm going to do later! I think I experienced my first bout of morning sickness this afternoon. Even my husband commented that I didn't look right. And it's just the beginning! Amy,...

Hey Amy! I had the same thing happen this weekend. I'm chalking it up to implantation bleeding since mine was more brownish-red than pink. But this could definitely be what it was in your case, too!

Hi there, I live in MA and we do have a law that requires MA-based companies to pay a portion of the treatments. But the amount varies by company and by insurance plan. We've been really fortunate that just about everything (drugs, procedures, testing) has been covered. We used an egg donor and the ...

Hey Amy! It looks like you and I are on the exact same schedule! I got my great beta of 354 on 7/18 and I go in for my first u/s on 7/28! I haven't noticed any changes in my belly, but for the past 2 days I've been having awful stomach issues (gas, other icky things). And there is a cold going aroun...
