Life with baby

Posted by Nurse08 in The Love of a Sister, 26 February 2015 · 184 views

We were able to bring our little man home on Jan 31 after a almost 4 week stay in NICU. It's been a adjustment being home with Blake but I am so happy to be a mommy. Yes the lack of sleep makes me cranky sometimes but that is the norm. Our little guy is 7w2d old already. His EDD was this coming sunday.

You don’t know anybody, who has the similar difficulties as you? That doesn’t mean, that nobody has it. They just don’t speak about it.
Did you know, that Audrey Hepburn was one of the women with infe...

Here goes!

Posted by plusle in Plusle's Egg Donor Journey, 29 January 2015 · 393 views

I haven't been around the Infertility world for very long, only a few weeks while I have been reading up on egg donation. One concern that recipient sometimes have is if donors might "claim" their baby in any way after the donation process, legally or emotionally. I think that's a legitimate worry, of course.

People without children are not delusional about having them

Posted by MagentaSky in MagentaSky's Blog, 27 January 2015 · 444 views

I want to clear up a few wrongful assumptions about infertile couples, in the hopes that this will resonate with others in my same situation, and that it will help outsiders be more aware and sensitive. 
 
I noticed there exists a strange assumption that people who can't have children, or are experiencing infertility, are somehow delusional abou...

Day of FET and warm massage table

Posted by Hope baby in Hope baby's Blog, 23 January 2015 · 286 views

Question: Did a massage about 1 hr after my FET. I realized later that the massage table is heated maybe 15- 30 mins into the session. I then asked the massage therapist to turned the massage table warmer off. Does anybody know if heated table warmers are contraindicated right after FET , specifically right after? I know hot tubs, saunas and Jacuzzis are...

I thought things would be different by now

Posted by Ljo in Ljo's Blog, 12 January 2015 · 358 views

It's been two years trying to conceive. A year and a half with help and nothing. I just thought things would be different by now with some progress and I feel like I'm nowhere.
 
We've been told that IVF looks like our next best option and so we've been trying to wrap our heads around that as well as looking into finances and how to afford it.

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.

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).
