    Any words of hope?

    1
    I'm looking for some kind of hope.  Has anything positive come out of this for anyone?  Ive had 3 total losses.  2 miscarriages and 1 ectopic but I suspect all my pregnancies have been ectopic.  I lost my left tube during the last pregnancy. My doctor did not belive I was in pain and kept telling me "you can't feel an ectopic pregnancy at 4 weeks".  2 weeks later he confirmed placement and I...

    IVF- So overwhelming

    1
    Friday my husband and I went to a fertility specialist.  We had went to one 4 years ago and they didn't give us any hope.  They did a sperm test on my husband and just automatically assumed there was no hope and we shouldn't even continue to try on our own.  Well we decided to not listen to them and we have continued to try on our own, never giving up.  4 years later it still has not happened...

    Quick Selfish Man Vent

    I'm about to leave for my 2nd IUI and regardless of the outcome (but it would be great if it worked) i'm just glad that we're finally doing something.  But my hubby is putting way to much pressure on himself about his role in this. I totally get that it's werid for him to be doing that in a dr's office, but can i be selfish for one second here? I'm the one on the meds, i'm the one experiencing...

    Has anyone considered donor eggs?

    Hi All-I am getting ready to start my third cycle of IVF next week.  Third time is the charm, right?  If this cycle proves unsuccessful, I am not sure if a fourth try will be an option given my age and the quality of my eggs.  Has anyone considered donor eggs or had success going that route?  I'd love to hear your thoughts/experience.  Thanks in advance.

    Does this happen to you?

    1
    For those going through IVF/IUI do you ever feel hopeless one day, angry the next, scared, in bargaining mode, then super positive and hopeful? Right now, I am in denial regarding my DOR. I feel like my docs are crazy and there's nothing wrong with me, it's just either a bad month or they are screwing up my protocol. sure maybe the meds put me on an emotional roller coaster, but this feels like...

    Mothers Day

    7
    Anyone else struggling with Mothers Day? I am having a really hard time this year, especially with having my second failed IVF this week. My mother has been such a great support but don't want to celebrate with my brothers and their kids on Sunday, and now I feel selfish. I am still mourning and just can't do it. I really thought this year would be a happy Mother's Day for me!
