I need advice. I'm tenatively scheduled to start articling at a firm in February 2014 (they have to confirm the date). I was planning on doing a full IVF and if I became pregnant letting them know that I wouldn't be available until August 2014 (which is when the position was originally supposed to start) now I'm debating doing (1-3) egg retrevial, fertilzing and storing the embroys until I'm done articling. What do you guys think?
nervous-wreckHi Grace, I've already started the IVF process and I'm fairly certain--thanks to everyones input but I'm still going to sleep on it. GN

Softi444My Beta is also on the 28th! Hopefully, we both get great news and they stick for 9 months... How many did you transfer this time? I transferred only one again.

Apprehension led to hopeful optimism, which was followed by crushing disappointment. This week needs to end now.

My very first IVF cycle was cancelled because I only have 1 egg. I was on a high dosage of puregon and menopur but they didn't work. I'm very sad and don't think I will ever make it to retrieval. I am devastated and mad that IVF is no longer an option. I guess I just wasn't meant to be a mother
KittyKatAww I am so very sorry. It is so tough and I have been there. It takes a lot of soul searching to figure out where to go from here but follow your heart, you will get there. We are here for you along the way!

leigh14A different protocol can make all the difference. My first cycle was cancelled. I did two more..each with low numbers and had my DD. It can happen.

bubblezthank you for your support.
Im seeing the doctor on tuesday to discuss other options but I dont think he will listen. There are only 2 protocols apparently. A review I read about my doctors office said that if your case is special they aren't much help. They only deal with general infertility.

wish everyone in our life did not know we were having fertility issues. They try to be helpful, but they just do not get it.

gibasgirlWait, is this Chloe Kardashian? Kidding, but I know how you feel. You have us. Keep your chin up.

My naturopath thinks I can conceive naturally. And that she has removed hubby's antibodies. Trying to be hopeful but scared its all silly...
ButterfliI resisted accupunture for ages cuz I didn't believe in it. Then I got desperate & booked myself in. I said to the woman as I got on the bed I feel bad as I don't really believe in all this stuff. She said to me that it still works even if I don't believe in it. I think the same applies to you...what have you got to lose? Good luck - I hope it works for you :)

All of these things seem to be going wrong. All I can think to myself "WHY DIDN'T THE DOCTORS CATCH THIS LAST YEAR?!?!?"
Lisa1981ROFLMAO.. you should write a book, sas and I will make a TV movie version of it...

SasabeeDeal. I'll start negotiating product placement opportunities.

nervous-wreckPersonally, I think that there is such a demand for their services that they invariably miss something. Was I the only person who got kicked out of the system every time they tried to post yesterday?

Trying to be patient until tomorrow before I call the clinic back again to make sure I get my IVF treatment offered for next cycle. I have a short cycle and am not suppressing, so time is ticking...21 days till my next AF...
