Re: Looking for an IVF friend

I am very new to this whole thing. My husband and I were trying to get pregnant for a little over a year. I am 30 and he is 34. We found out that his sperm don't live for long periods of time. Therefore, we skipped right over insemination to IVF. Everything kind of happened quickly. I got my period...

Thanks Lost Girl and Runner Kate! I am glad I started this thread, I've learned so much! I would have wanted to slice that girl's head in also!!! :-) As for yoga, I think that is a great idea, I mean, look at Madonna, she swears by yoga and I think she looks great! I wish you girls loads of baby dust!

Exercise~ How much are you/should you?

Hi Ladies!

How much exercise did you do and should you do before and during your cycle? I like to weight train and do intervals, should I continue? It's such a stress reliever for me!

Hopefully I will do an IVF w/ ICSI in March or April, I'm just trying to prepare.....

Hi Healthy~ Welcome to the board, the women (and men!) here are wonderful! How nice of you to want to donate eggs! I'm sure you will get some responses on this board. You may want to venture in to some of the other boards on this site, like IVF. I hope not to need donor eggs or sperm, but I applaud ...

Thanks Mandy and Justine!! Reading your posts made me a little more excited (if that's possible!), especially Justine, since we have such similar backgrounds. I can't believe you got PG naturally after your IVF!! Wow! We will definitely do ICSI. Did your DH do anything special before giving his spec...

Thank you CroElla! Congrats are your coming bundle of joy! I appreciate all your words of encouragement. I guess I'm just trying to "figure my odds"! Luckily and fortunately, my health is great, no probs at all with me, but my DH has low sperm count and low morph. Thank goodness we are doing ICSI. A...

Hi Goosemis! My thoughts are prayers are with you. Good luck and I hope all goes well for you. A week long bed rest, is that standard in your clinic, or special for your situation. That is a long time, but it will all be worth it in a couple weeks when you get your positive test!!! Take care and sen...

Hi Girls ~ I, too, am new to this site! So nice to "chat" with others with similar issues right now! Loopie- We are similar creatures! I am (hopefully) getting ready to start an IVF cycle in March if AF cooperates. My DH and I are skipping right to IVF as well due to male factor. Where are you at in...
