IVF, social life

Morning,
I have not been going out or entertaining much the last few months.  A, because I did not have the energy and B, no funds either. But last night I went to an Art Fair organised by a 'friend' of mine.
I am not sure this is normal, but suddenly my social skills have plummeted....how uninteresting some people become , how superficial, selfish a...

Fear

Posted by tjluvbug in tjluvbug's Blog, 08 October 2014 · 353 views

I am 2 days away from the 12 week milestone with this pregnancy. I've never made it so far! I have an OB appointment tomorrow and will ask for a doppler so that  I can have some reassurance that all is still well inside with the babies. My last ultrasound was at 10 weeks 5 days. My NT scan is next week and I am more than a little anxious.
 
I do...

Just... Meh

Posted by Chicklet23389 in Chicklet23389's Blog, 06 October 2014 · 215 views

I have done this hormone thing.. 4 times now. This time is the worst. I'm emotional and sobbing about everything!
I know now that this is normal - hormones are horrible.

I just hate that I'm crying at a drop of a hat over the dumbest things like the Orange juice being gone! Or my parents leaving for a holiday (I'm 33 and married, I don't even live with...

  I received a call on Friday from our OB's office in regards to our IPS testing. I was worried as we had a appointment booked on Monday. The nurse was calling to let us know that the IPS screening was all Negative. Awwwe sigh of relief.

Ivfmake factor, dor

So I've decide to start this to help me get through this mountain of emotion, which I know most of your reading can empathize with.

We started our journey with the fertility clinic just about a year ago, after DH was diagnosed with severe male factor (I have three healthy happy girls from previous marriage).

Funny how hopeful you are in the beginning go...

I'm going to vent....again. Seems like that's all I do on here lately! Trust me, I'm not a miserable person all of the time. I promise. This is just the place I can come and let out all of the negative emotions I have that I keep to myself in my everyday life.
 
A "good" friend of mine that I've known for 20+ years asked this week if my husband and I...

IVF Here We Come! I don't know about you, but at no point in my life did I ever imagine I would be creating my very own test-tube baby(s). Like most girls in this world, I dreamt of marrying my Prince Charming, building our home, and birthing our beautiful babies. My life was on track. I earned my Bachelors and Masters degrees while working full-time. At 33, I was working...

How did I ever get here?

Posted by Hoping4_1 in So were the days of OUR lives..., 18 August 2014 · 750 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...

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.

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...

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...

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...
