Arrangements Month -4

Posted by Anett Breczko in Before I Got Pregant - That 43 months, 30 March 2015 · 111 views

One month after my 27 th birthday, at the end of March, was the day our wedding date settled. It was clear sailing for the baby!
Or it would have been… I started to make my `to do` list. I wanted to have a perfect situation for my child, just like I learned from the television doctors.
I went to the hospital and let checked my heart. As a chil...

I have 4 embryos that I've been storing at New Life fertility centre in Mississauga. We no longer want to store them and would to DONATE them to a couple of couples who are in need due to not being able to conceive. I don't exactly know how to do this, but we have made an appointment for April 15 with our doctor at New Life at which p...


From seed to flower

Posted by plusle in Plusle's Egg Donor Journey, 24 March 2015 · 172 views

After a long, long year of waiting, my Mimosa Pudica plant (aka Shy Grass) has blossomed! The seeds were purchased years ago from an online retailer. I actually planted 5, and only one of the tiny plants lived past the first month. It was also so tiny and barely had any leaves. All year long it threatened to shrivel up overnight...until suddenly, a bud!...


I am hurt; I am lost. I am defeated and I am broken.

Posted by Bella16 in Bella16's Blog, 04 March 2015 · 789 views

I haven't written a post in here in years... but I just need to get this out... I am sorry it is so depressing but such is the life of an infertile at times...
I am hurt; I am lost. I am defeated and I am broken. I beg and I cry; I hope and I pray; then I scream and get mad at God and yell “WHY?”
One hour and 30 minutes ago I fou...


Poor guy

Posted by Nurse08 in The Love of a Sister, 02 March 2015 · 396 views

I feel bad for my little man today. He was circumcised. I am hoping it doesn't hurt him to much and he can just sleep it off. I see some more Tylenol in his future for tonight if he's still uncomfortable.
On another note I am so sad to not see Dr V anymore. I feel like I have become part of the clinic being there so much in the past 4 yrs. Maybe I will be...

I want to take the time to share with you some valuable information that I have learned over the past three actually almost four years of dealing with this. If you know my history, you will know that I have had three miscarriages and a failed ivf. You will also know that on top of this, our clinic lost our frozen embryos....yes that is correct...............

People without children are not delusional about having them

Posted by MagentaSky in MagentaSky's Blog, 27 January 2015 · 578 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 · 371 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...

So I am considered healthy enough to transfer my last 2 frozen embies Friday! I have put all my strength, prayer and positive energy into the universe for this to work.  I was told there is a pretty and ugly one waiting for me. I keep telling myself it's the "ugly" one that's going to be the one that works. I did my weekly acupuncture yesterday. I wi...


I thought things would be different by now

Posted by Ljo in Ljo's Blog, 12 January 2015 · 443 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.

Happy Newyear to all you lovely ladies out there, and I hope it will be a year full of enjoyment, love and happiness.
I had my NIPT test before the Christmas holidays. A ûber-expensive bloodtest, new to Europe and not covered by the insurance, but non invasive and it can determine a Down syndrome baby. Docters do not like to do the amnio anymo...

Yesterday before dh went back to work, I went over and hugged him and said "Somehow this year we'll have another baby" he then turns around and says "maybe it didn't work because of you sleep apnea" I then said that it didn't work because I was  under stress and I've gained weight since the last cycle which was almost 6 years ago.  That in itsel...

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...

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...

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...
