Scared

I am so scared my IVF did not work. I just feel like me being pregnant is such an impossible feat. It is so hard for me to believe that they placed two embryos in and that they would be growing inside me right now. I just feel like I have been struggling with this so long that it is impossible.

Is this unusual?

Breastfeeding after IVF

I am a student nurse in labor and delivery. A seasoned postpartum nurse told me that women who have just had a baby(s) through IVF have a lot of issues making milk to breastfeed. She stated it is b/c of all the hormones we have taken that it kind of messes things up. Has anyone heard of that before?

The shots are not too bad. If you are doing Lupron and Follistim the needles are tiny. If you do Menopur the medication burns. Make sure if they give you a 27 guage needle for Menopur that you ask for a 30 guage. It makes a huge difference. The Menopur made me bruise but, part of that could have bee...
