I'm going to do it. My Dad is a doctor, and he feels the advances in medicine in the next 10 yrs will be huge. Stem cell research is in the forefront right now. It also treats lymphoma which is quite prevalent today in different forms. I found a bank associated with a well known sperm bank operating...

I don't think they know how long it lasts because it's so new, but they use the same freezing as eggs and sperm and that seems to do ok. I read an article that talked about all the diseases that it could help, both in the child or the parents and the list will grow in the next few years. Diabetes re...

Marina So sorry about your loss, but I know your other baby will be great! Stay strong & positive for your little one! I thought I felt movement a couple of weeks ago, but not really anything since. At the last u/s he was turned the other way, toward the spine so I'm hoping that's why I can't feel ...

Marina It is a really stressful time! We've all been through so much to get here it's hard to shake that anxiety....whew. A friend of mine gave me a tip that really helped & put my mind in a different place. She said to just be grateful, as if I already had my healthy baby. Thank God for giving him...

I was on Microdose Lupron / 225 Follistim & 3 vials of Menopur. My 3rd IVF they mis-dosed me & gave me reg Lupron instead of microdose so that doesn't count, but the other 2 rounds were ok . I did Accupuncture 2x a week, and herbs for 3 months before my 2nd IVF & that made a world of difference to m...

lyly So sorry about the decisions you're having to make. I was 1 in 37 automatically because of my age, but it's still a slim chance. My ob also told me the level 2 screening misses 20% of issues. I can't remember when you had your previous miscarriages....did they tell you why you miscarried? Beca...

I thought i felt something today around 2pm. He was really active then during my u/s so maybe.....it felt like faint little pops. I don't think I would have really noticed if i wasn't thinking about it. Also my belly just kinda popped out definitively the last couple of days & it's harder. Anybody e...

Hi Girls My u/s went great...he was moving all over the place & he's a week ahead now in growth. I asked the doctor about it & he said it varies with each person, but a lot of times each week they are ahead means an extra 5 lbs. Their size is calculated on an average size of 7.5 lbs. He said though ...

Tiger I get that too.... a sharp pain on my bottom right side. I'll get it for a couple of days, then nothing. I thought it was gas too , but apparently it's the muscles of the uterus spasming sometimes as they stretch. You can get it on either side & there's nothing to worry about unless the pain ...

Neffi, you sound absolutely fine. I'm 5'7" & started at 125...I've gained 9 lbs in 14 weeks although they told me not to exercise the 1st trimester because of my age. I read 5-7 lbs the first 13 weeks, then 12-14lbs the next 14 weeks & 1 pound a week for the last 13 or 14. Everybody varies so much &...

wonderce 25mg of Iron actually seems about right..I had a hundred in my 1st one. You'll start gaining once your appetite is back...I'm just starving all the time :) I also heard that part of the reason for constipation is that the body wants the food sitting in there as long as possible to extract ...
