Re: Hello from CT!

Great to hear from you, CT_Michele! Your pic with Ella is adorable! Evie will be 3 in October and she has already told me she "Thinks Evie needs a bicycle" : )

All the best to you with everything!

Re: Menstrual cramps before and after pregnancy

Interesting question. I don't have endo (as far as I know) but for me... -on the pill before we were trying to get pregnant cramps were very mild -off the pill while trying to get pregnant they were much worse -off the pill and after first IVF pregnancy and after second IVF pregnancy they were quite...

Re: Trying for baby number 2 or more...

Well, we aren't in that position anymore but we were. My husband has his own business and when my DD was born in Oct. '08 the markets were totally collapsing. He lost 40% of his income. I have DOR and was 37 years old. We knew if we wanted a sib for our DD we had to go for it. We were fortunate that...

Re: Ghost - DHEA for health benefits? (children mentioned)

I hadn't thought of unknown, unstudied, long-term effects like cancer. Aggression? Hair loss? Maleness? Earlier menopause doesn't sound so bad after reading those side effects :lol:

Thanks, Ghost!

Ghost - DHEA for health benefits? (children mentioned)

Hello Ghost! As you can see by my ticker I am fantastically blessed with beautiful babes after IVF. :D So, my question to you is not about getting pregnant, but about other benefits of DHEA for women like me who can expect to go through menopause earlier than normal. At age 36 my AMH was 0.6 and at ...

Re: Low AMH, 1st attempt IVF. Feeling lost!!

Hi Kitty, yes we had treatments. I went to CCRM in Colorado to the famous Dr. Schoolcraft. We were very fortunate. I remember when the nurse called to tell me my AMH results. 0.6 -- I was really shaken by that. I was 36 at that point. My highest FSH was 11.4 and I had 9-11 follicles but a poor respo...

Re: Low AMH, 1st attempt IVF. Feeling lost!!

Hi Kitty, your subject line caught my eye. I have low AMH, too. I just wanted to wish you the best. It is so unfair for someone so young to have to deal with a low reserve problem. Actually, there is lots of unfairness in the fertility world it seems but I just wanted to tell you that you are not al...

Re: BUMPIN' 08 - Fall Mommies

YaY CT_Michele! Wishing you more success with "Ella's batch"! We would like to move, too. We really need more space. It may make more sense to rent our place out and rent something larger for awhile. We'll see. I am still working 3 days per week. Our nanny quit and so we decided to put Evie in a "pr...

Re: Celebrities and IVF...

I agree ladies. I started trying at 35. By 36 I was trying IVF but my body was responding like I was 42. I remember vaguely thinking at 35 that it shouldn't be hard to get pregnant and if it was I'd *just* take some fertility drugs. Like it was no big deal. Boy, was I wrong! No one is really out the...
