More Surprises!

Posted by amazing grace in amazing grace's Blog, 25 August 2014 · 384 views

For those of you who have been following my story, today I had my Sonohystrogram with my new clinic, New Life. I met with Dr. Lee since he performed the procedure. I have to say that he was absolutely calming, nurturing pleasant and so caring. I met with him after the procedure to discuss findings. So as all of you know, I have been enduring two and a...

How did I ever get here?

Posted by Hoping4_1 in So were the days of OUR lives..., 18 August 2014 · 544 views

As I look back on my journey I'll never forget when I first joined here. I was looking through some signatures and was showing my DH how some women here have gone through so many treatments. Shortly after that I got pregnant with twins on my first IVF. Never did I think I'd end up with my signature.
 
Now my signature is long, 2 IVF's and going...

Posted by Nurse08 in The Love of a Sister, 16 August 2014 · 318 views

So since my last entry we met with our RE/OB on Aug 11. This was our first OB appointment with him. He did the usual family history, and asked about our GS previous births. Since she has gone overdue with all 4 of her children he said he won't let her pass 39 weeks with a IVF pregnancy. So he will induce at that point. So now we are looking at a EDD of Fe...

It Hurts

Posted by Ljo in Ljo's Blog, 15 August 2014 · 382 views

A couple of days ago, my friend was gathering stuff to start selling at her garage sale this weekend and she asked if there were any toys or things that my brother and sister in law might be interested in having since they are due in October. I mentioned it to my parents as well and my mom asked me to pick up some stuff for their house when the baby comes...

The official "End" ...

Posted by Vetter in Vetter's Blog, 01 August 2014 · 559 views

It's been quite a long time since I've written a blog post, especially here.  Why am I doing it?  I couldn't let this weekend go by without recognition of its importance. 
 
I've recognized all the milestones along this arduous infertility journey, and this one will be added too.  It is officially the end. 
 
As of Sunda...

An update from an oldie

Posted by KJ_mom in KJ_mom's Blog, 21 July 2014 · 456 views

I haven't been on this board since 2011 and while it looks like all the names have changed since I used to actively post here, I still thought I should come back and share my story.
 
Here is a link to my blog when DH and I stopped TTC in September 2011 which gives you the background on our reproductive history.  http://ivf.ca/forums/blog/5...

Control Issues

Loss, DE, adoption, Plans

As some of you know, DH and I had our most recent and devastating loss at almost 13 weeks at the end of March.  It wasn't too long or drawn out, but it did involve both Miso and a DNC a week later, as well as many weeks of bleeding, grief, and then the development of a new plan....
 
We've known for a while that the most likely culprit for our m...

Waiting Game and the start of IVF round #1

Posted by rascal77 in Rantings through the IVF process, 16 June 2014 · 339 views

After having the TESE done in December time seemed to stand still.  We were in the wonderful world of waiting....waiting to hear from Heartland when we would be able to start our first cycle.  We called periodically over the next couple of months to check on things and were told the same thing you can expect to be called to go in the May/June cy...

It is over

Posted by Casey4 in Casey4's journey through IVF and Donor Eggs, 22 May 2014 · 695 views

The title says it all, result can back negative.  That sucks.  I held off testing, so I was prepared for the results to go either way.
 
I look back thinking there was nothing else I could have done.  I had a strong donor who had 4 previous positives.  I added intralipids, heparin, low dose aspirin, dexamethasone to the mix of dru...

Three things you should never say to a woman after a miscarriage

Posted by L&L in L&L's Blog, 10 May 2014 · 601 views

Since many of you, like me, suffered from miscarriages on top of having a hard time conceiving, I thought I'd share this article on what not to say after miscarriage. It's interesting because I think the same advice applies to other aspects of infertility.
