Re: New

Amanda, My first time to inject myself alone was when DH was abroad on business, and it was scary. I think it took me more than the 15 min. it took you, so you are doing quite alright! I hope your E2 levels go up, but not too up. Mine were so high cause I hyper stimulated and the expert DH and i wen...

Re: Surrounded by other pregnant women

Hi all, Brit1612 - Thanks a lot! It does give me a lot of hope to hear your story. You got it right...the announcing thing is something I truly fantasize about. After reading your post I rang my DH, disturbed him at work and in a most childish manner said that in the case we succeeded in having twin...

Re: New

Amanda, I honestly think the worst is behind you for this cycle, when it comes to physical unease. For me the stims were an absolute nightmare and the ER, ET and suppositories afterwards were much simpler to tolerate. My transfer was also day 3, it has quite a few benefits - among which - when sent ...

Re: New

Amanda, I can't imagine why anyone would tell you scary stories about the egg retrieval. Though the way to approach this may be individual, objectively, the physical pain is nearly nonexistent - mostly (pls excuse if I'm being too graphic) a woman is expected to bld minimally if at all and it all go...

Re: New

Hi Trusting, I'd luck to wish you brilliant luck with your first IVF cycle. Though not quite a military wife myself, my husband is abroad on many occasions due to his work, sometimes twice a month. During our cycle (the only one until now) he was away during the stims injection days and what was eve...

Re: Surrounded by other pregnant women

Hi Riogirl! This is truly a courageous story that you two have. I am happy for your DH to have found a woman that loves him so much and that would do anything to have a family with him after the disease. It is funny how it SEEMS precisely evil people get it easier, also unfortunately when it comes t...

Re: New

Sunshine, RE has suggested IMSI to us, since we know about the sperm morphology issues. [IMSI is basically ICSI with the added "advantage" that more attention is paid to the quality of the sperm to be injected into the egg. In IMSI, the man's sperm sample is examined under a high-definition microsco...

Re: Surrounded by other pregnant women

What done is done... We went to the hospital and saw her. She is a sweet yellow blond calm baby. She has tiny pink gloves and parents are to leave these gloves on for an entire month since it isn't allowed to cut her fingernails short yet and without the gloves she'd scratch herself. I saw my DH sta...

Re: Surrounded by other pregnant women

Michele, Thank you so much for everything you wrote. your way of looking at things is by far more mature than the narrow shadowy hole I push myself into. It's so true what you say about venting to the understanding people, cause though I have wonderful friends, this business is complex and has issue...

Re: Winter 2010-2011 Cycle Board

Thanks Leorira for your reply - I know it isn't fair. I can imagine just how frustrating the situation at work might be when you are the one who has tried to conceive longest and should really be away from work with your baby (I wish it for you so much). DH and I are trying to come to terms with see...

Surrounded by other pregnant women

Hi! I introduced myself earlier today. I am ending my second chemical pregnancy now and hope to be able to start a new cycle soon. RE has told us the reason we have chemical pregnancies is that there's something wrong with the sperms so that the embryos stop developing after the very first stage of ...

Hello, This is my first day as a member of the forum. You people sound so supportive and I could really use a shoulder. I'm 34, my husband is 33 and has severe sperm morphology problems. We went through IVF (ICSI) and from 23 eggs we ended up in one chemical pregnancy after our fresh et, then only o...
