What do you do when you feel like things are not moving forward in your TTC journey? Lately I've been coming here and reading as many posts as I can.

    I love this place. Coming here makes me feel less alone and less hopeless, and sometimes it makes me hopeful and optimistic as well. The compassion and empathy from the women here are things that I could never find somewhere else.

Waiting to sign consent, we have decided to do 1 round of IVF. (And potentially FETs.) Feeling out of control of the body again stinks.

Trying to move on from my loss. Now after 3 failed IVF cycle with my own eggs; I think it's time for plan B or C. I want my husband to experience having a child that is biologically his. He doesn't matter one way or the other but I will not deprived him of that. Anyway that have used a donor please message me the process and how did you feel ed using donor eggs. Gosh this is going to cost me us a lot of money.

Feeling so freaking empty! I keep crying. I need my baby back. My daughter even started crying too and hugging me telling me she loves me and happy I had her. My heart melted.

AMH was 25 in 2012, now 20.8..what does it mean? big drop or looks normal? (wont be seeing RE for awhile)

    They say that the number of mature eggs likley to be retrieved is about half your AMH number... Mine was 3.4 and I got two embryos to transfer... 20.8 is still really good!

    if that is the case, i would make a little more than half an egg...
    amh definitely drops with time.. you still have a really good number!

Had my D&C this morning and now I am home resting up. Not in a lot of pain but my heart grieves badly. I should have the results back in a couple of weeks to let me know why my baby died. I am very sad but trying to stay faithful.

Trying to fall asleep and I can't. I sure hope I can knocked out before I get into the room because I don't know if I can go through the procedure if I am awake before getting in the procedure do. This really starting to get real.

    When I went for my lap surgery (not at all the same, but I was terrified going in) I thought the worst part was having to be awake and walk into the operating room and get on the table myself. Just knock us out when we get to the hospital! Good luck today.
