jchris- I too-like Michele had male factor only. It did work the 1st time but we did have to use tese-where they surgically removed sperm from my husbands testes- and then injected them into my eggs. Be sure that that is what your doctor plans to do. In other words, if your wife has 10 healthy eggs-...

Ladies-sorry to crash your thread-but just wanted to lend some hope to getting your bodies back after baby. I too bled until about 14 weeks-when it started I made sure that I slowed down-no more exercising, mowing the lawn etc....Pre-preg I was 135 lbs and very fit-The day before delivery I was 192l...

Faith77-I had OHSS and was told and read in many places that if my embies did implant, it would get worse for a while-I looked about 3 months pregnant at first-then my bloating and pain ended up COMPLETELY going away before beta so I was sure it was a BFN-not true....I have my 6 week old DS to prove...

Faith77-I wish I could tell you SOMETHING to help make the time go by.......I don't think there is anything. As far as signs/symptoms, I over analyzed every twinge or ache-only to find out they were from the progesterone. My only advice, try to keep busy-I know, easier said than done!!!!!! Best of L...

Esperanza & riogirl-thank you BOTH for your tips-I am trying it all......I'll let you know how it goes-It's just so hard to hear him scream when I know I could just put him on my breast, and he will be o.k.-But I have to remember, when he's at daycare, I won't be able to do that. I will keep at it. ...

Lynniecat-I'm no expert on this, but I believe I read on here before that the doc's will not do it if you are still breastfeeding-I'm pretty sure she would have to stop first.

Michele-no I only had 1 fresh cycle.
