Very Hopeful!

Hello Everyone:

My name is Nicole and tonight my husband and I started our second round of IVF meds. To give you some background info, our first round was cancelled because unfortunately only two follicles grew to 18mm. My doctor did not want to proceed with only two as they like to have at least 4 (and we didn't want to waste the money). We were very disappointed :cry: . We opted to do IUI instead, but despite having really good sperm and two huge eggs, it was unsuccesful.

This whole thing is consuming us because like all of you, we want children so bad. We are both 40, so on top of everything I have a ticking time bomb in my head! Everything else about me is perfect. My doc said I have great tubes, a perfect uterus, etc... It's my age that is working against me. This is probably why I am not producing many eggs. Anyway, I had a sonogram today (b4 meds) and I have 5 developing!! :D

Any support from anyone would be great. I wish you all the best of luck!
