New and nearly desperate to relate to someone.

Hi, My name is sabrina and I have just completed my first ivf cycle. 2 grade A embryos were transferred on 6-6-10. And I am waiting...

My husband and I went through 4 rounds of IUI with no success. Wish I had known about this board months ago because I feel alone and desperate to reach out to some one who understands. My DH tries, but lets face it, he just doesn't know what to say or do. I can't see how he could understand.

I am waiting the two weeks for my first blood pregnancy test. Man do I hope it is positive. The waiting is killing me. I think it is because each round of IUI was unsuccessful and I was always disappointed. Is anyone out there in a similar situation or can you give me some helpful feedback to get me through the next week? I'd appreciate some friends out here.

My husband has three children fo=rom his first marriage, ages 22, 20, and 18. The oldest is stationed in Kosovo, the next two live in our home. My DH had a vasectomy in 2001, and subsequent reversal when we were married in 2007. I also have a 5 yr old son from my first marraige. We have been trying for a baby for two years and he has a low sperm count coupled with my irregular ovulation. Ugh, this is exhuasting. We are one big blended family, and I can't help but feel something is just missing... my child with my husband. Is it possible to be truly grateful for all we have, but just want more still? I feel selfish sometimes, but just can't quite get over feeling like this family is not yet complete.

I have not been through exactly what you have been through so I can't offer you any advice with regard to the previous IUIs. But I didn't want to read and leave without saying anything. As you sound quite stressed out. I have been trying to conceive for 4 years on the 28th of this month. So don't feel too bad. We have finally decided to try IVF. I am currently stimming. So I'm not sure what the outcome will be.

Best of luck for your blood test results. IVF has a higher chance of success than the IUIs so positive thinking!
