Re: trying for number two--is it any easier?

Hi Sue, I wish you nothing but success in trying for as many children as you want/heart desires. I would only like to suggest you pay the extra $$$ to get the chromosomal screening after the eggs are fertilized. I too had my miracle little boy on our 3rd IVF attempt at 39. Last year we had 1 failed ...

Re: 40+....I need to hear some success stories.

Hi Karen, I had a beautiful boy with my 3rd IVF at age 39. After he was 6 months old, we had another IVF and was pregnant. We chose not to screen for chromosomal defects (hindsight), and found out we had a little girl with Down's and only 1/2 a heart. We were/will always be devastated. We chose to e...

Hi! First, I hope you are successful! I tried pineapple & core and it doesn't make any difference (I've had 4 IVF's). I DO feel that acupuncture made a difference. Both times I did one treatment before retrieval I ended up becoming pregnant. Above all, just relax mentally day of transfer and day aft...

My dear May-Mom friends, First, let me thank all of you for your support during this time. I just wanted to echo Mjay's words. Please don't let our losses get you down. I have our first little IVF miracle taking his nap now. We may have lost our little girl, but we still feel so blessed! It took 3 I...

Our little girl does have Down's. Her heart defect is severe and we will need to start meeting with the cardiologist within the next month. In addition to other medical problems she could encounter, there is an increased risk of miscarriage and stillbirth. Needless to say, we are heartbroken. She's ...

Hi Ladies, First the good news - we're having a little girl! We couldn't be happier. Now the bad news - she has a heart defect that will require surgery once born. This type of defect is common with Down's. We had an amnio this morning and will know by Friday. Of course our hearts are broken, but ar...

Mjay - So glad you and the baby are doing well. When you make it to Saturday, does that mean you will be on bedrest for the remainder?

Anyone know what they're having??? Tuesday is my day (fingers crossed).

Mjay - How are you feeling today? How's the baby? Defttonesmo - Will you have to wait until the 22nd to find out if it's a girl or boy? I had the round ligament pain early on...seems to get you when you move suddenly - almost like a shot of fire through you. Ugh...I seem to be getting back pain (dul...

Hi there, I hope everyone had a wonderful Gobbler! Defttonesmo - Sounds like your baby knew mommy wanted a sono instead of a doppler and was just trying to help. Glad all is well. How is everyone feeling?? All is quiet with me, just waiting (not so patiently) on my sono next Tuesday to find out boy ...
