Do the stupid comments ever stop? I just got a lecture from the lady who picks through the recycling bins on why I should have a second baby, having only one is apparently very bad. This is about the 4th time this week someone has asked when are we going to have a second. People need to mind their own *^%(^& business

    DH always jokes that he is going to turn the hose on them the next time they come in our backyard and rumage around, that may be a possible solution? lol

    And I wish it could go faster! We're always waiting for something... If a have a baby girl I might name her Patience! :)

Not surprisingly, a study found that 48% of women described Infertility as the worst experience of their lives, compared with only 15% of men

    I suspect the difference in percentage has something to do with how we identify ourselves. A woman without children likely feels 'less of a woman' where a man can more easily fall back on the identity his job gives him. Plus the 'studdly' image has little or no relation to the number of children/wild oats sown.

    Could also be that so much of the treatment aspect relies on the woman ... I know after each fail my DH wants right back in and I need a few months. Sucks for him too, i think, but it's a totally different level of suckage.
    Apr 18 2011 01:16 PM
  • impatient's Photo
    Interesting - although I'll bet my DH is within that 15%. I think the reason it affects women so much is because the first question asked at most social interactions is, "Do you have any kids?" so you're surrounded by it 48% of the time. Men, on the other hand, get to make small talk 85% of the time about non-family topics like work or sports.

Unfertilized → Dori77

Hi Dori,
Thanks for answering my questions about HFC! If you could send me the price list that would be awesome. Not sure if you can do it through the messaging here (I'm still new to this site!), but if not, you can email me at unfertilized.wp@gmail.com.

AF showed up in full force over the weekend and just got official confirmation that my beta is negative. I hope my RE is ready for me on Wednesday!

    I'm so sorry KJ. I'm happy you're getting in fast. I don't get to see my Dr until May 12 unless someone cancels & we can go on short notice. Hoping you'll have a wonderful plan in place for the next round. Hugs to you...

    It's going alright, the usual 3 eggs is what we'll likely end up with again.

is still waiting for confirmation of our results from the clinic. It has been a much longer wait than usual. Had to do a beta test yesterday and now waiting for those results!! I didn't realize how long this process actually takes - it's not instant in my case!

Today 8dp5dt - shortness of breath since last Friday is this normal for ivf?
Apr 18 2011 04:47 AM
  • Duck's Photo
    I had shortness of breath after my last ivf, it was mild ohss and an infection from the ivf, but we didn't really find out about the infection until weeks after the transfer.

    Are you taking DHEA? If so, you shoudl consider having an EKG to rule out side effects like irrgeular heartbeat. Fingers crossed you're soon feeling and breathing better.
    Apr 18 2011 11:45 AM
  • childless's Photo
    Honestly mouse, I don't even know what DHEA is so no would be my answer to your question. I am seeing my family doc this afternoon... I believe the SOB is due to stimming withdrawal. Duck, I'm glad you survived the SOB.
