I also had hyrosalpinx and my doctor had to removed my tube and he attempted to repair my other tube. Recovery from the surgery wasn't bad but I went thru a period of feeling depressed that I wasn't able to have children the natural way - that was the hardest part for me. I was okay physically a cou...

Congrats!!! I also did the shots until 10 weeks and my nurse told us to massage the area for ten minutes after doing the shot because it disperses the oil. The bump is just a pocket of oil sitting there. We actually got one of those hand held massagers that just vibrates and my husband massaged the ...

Hi Annie, I was wondering when someone else was going to post. I am so happy to be in my second trimester also. The last ultrasound I had showed that the baby measured ahead so it would be measuring at 15 weeks today. I dont go back to the doctor until the 17th and I dont know if he will do an ultra...

My doctor told me that they just recommend that you take it easy the rest of the day but after that he said you can do whatever you normally do. I just stayed on the couch the rest of the day watching tv and was back at work the next day.

I was pretty sick after ER and very sore, but it went alway. Two of my embryos didnt make it between ET and blastocyst but luckily I still have four little ones that made it. I also did not have implantation bleeding and the doctor told me everything looks really good. Good Luck to You!!!

I found the stretching of the skin did the best for me and I had to do the progesterone until I was 10 weeks. Also, i...
