    More than I would take for the HSG?!

    I personally found the SIS better than the HSG. I didn't take anything for my SIS and did just fine. A lil Advil wouldn't hurt though, of course.

    I found it equally painful to the HSG but I guess everyone reacts different to the tests.

    Interesting...I don't know if I'll ever have 15 eggs?!

  • Hollie384's Photo
    That's crazy ... !! I had 10 good eggs and was over the moon w/ that number, as was our RE. I think 15 is a little excessive ...?

I'm having such a crappy day already. Being a stepmom sucks so bad sometimes. I hate to say it, but it does.

    What a coincidence! The Femara Super B!tch has arrived too! I slammed the door this morning both on my DH and stepdaughter. FFS. I don't know if it's hormones or in fact, just me.

    Try a B50 supplement every morning... I found that helped counteract the moodiness (I call it my "happy pill", lol).

Kicking off Infertility Awareness Week with a fun member initiative. Watch for details over the next few days.

    LMFAO!!! If it's anything like "vajazzle", that's gotta be a sight to see!

For all those wondering TTTS is twin to twin transfusion syndrome. It's rare of course, hopefully things will work out...

    I have a good friend who had ttts,The girls are now 7yrs old,they did a small procedure to remove some amniotic fluid from the thriver,and the other twin picked right up!!Just wanted to share a good story!!
    May 10 2011 09:56 PM


Totally taken off guard... why does everyone assume you need a surrogate as soon as IVF fails??? Random message on FB offering a uterus is an odd one to get!
May 10 2011 07:54 PM
  • Emily81's Photo
    2 girls at work casually offered to be surrogates for us yrs ago, they just don't get it though they generally mean well. Hopefully IVF#2 will be your lucky cycle, FX!

    I think there hearts are in the right place and is a huge offering, but your right. They just don't get it :-(
    May 10 2011 09:23 PM
  • papoose76's Photo
    I hate that comment "why don't you just use a surrogate?" UGH!!! It's because they're ignorant. They don't know any better.

    Good except that I tried the "ghee" masala dosa thinking that the ghee (clarified butter) would be on the side - oh no, it was right in the dosa (making it delicious) which now blows my 1400 calorie allottment to hell :)

    so sorry Barbie, after a suprise BFP and resulting miscarriage we turned to IVF only to get an ectopic, 4 days in hospital, major abdominal surgery, 2 weeks off of work, heartbreak :( It's a terrible thing to have to go through. Recover well and take good care of yourself.

    I'm so sorry Barbie

Normally I don't let the FB baby comments bother me but today a very pregnant friend's complaints about "being so done with being pregnant" rubbed me the wrong way... luckily I thought better of posting what I was going to, lol.
May 10 2011 03:37 PM
  • Emily81's Photo
    Pg complaints will automatically get someone hidden on my fb. I find the pg complainers often complain about the baby, lack of sleep etc after the baby comes, and I can`t stand that either! Hang in there, you`re not alone!

    I ALWAYS comment on those and say "I would GLADLY trade places with you. Be thankful you're not infertile!!"

dianez → Eggdonormomma

Hello eggdonormomma,
We are an early forties couple with a 4 year old daughter concieved through IVF. We are in Montreal, and with the new free program here have been refused IVF due to my age. We have been trying unsuccessfully for the past 3 years to conceive a sybling for our daughter. We have been informed that egg donation is now our only hope. Can we chat?
