Vetter's Blog > The official "End" ...

Posted Vetter on 01 August 2014 - 09:21 AM

It's been quite a long time since I've written a blog post, especially here.  Why am I doing it?  I couldn't let this weekend go by without recognition of its importance. 
I've recognized all the milestones along this arduous infertility journey, and this one will be added too.  It is officially the end. 
As of Sunda...

wngu's Blog > Time to say goodbye

Posted wngu on 27 September 2013 - 12:57 PM

It is time to say goodbye. I joined this group a few years ago, as our journey was getting harder and obstacles much larger. You ladies were a shoulder to cry on, a support to lean on and a source of knowledge to depend on. I could have not done it with out your care and kind words and your support. I endured many hard days and your stories where always a...

Is getting pregnant a dream? > Back here after a long ... but good time!

Posted Julia1977 on 16 September 2015 - 03:20 PM

I was surprised to see that my last post was in November 2013! It was after my miscarriage and I remember I needed to vent and talk about how painful the process had been.
Although I stopped blogging, TTC didn't stop.  Some ladies here might have followed my story on some threads in the forums, but here I am again, feeling like I need to share...

The Echo of Infertility > On this night 5 years ago

Posted DesignerBug on 05 January 2014 - 08:12 PM

Tonight I take a moment to reflect back to five years ago.
January 6, 2009 marked CD1 for what I knew then would be my last venture into the world of assisted reproductive technology. It was our 70th cycle in an effort to conceive our family. Doctors had reached a point where they felt confident in telling us we had a 2% chance of natural conceptio...

Dear God,

If I can't have a baby, can I win the lottery instead?

The Echo of Infertility > I have not Forgotten

Posted DesignerBug on 22 September 2013 - 08:34 PM

I have not forgotten where my daughter came from or how we came to be together. I have not forgotten that the road was difficult, the tears were plentiful or that there were many losses along our way. I have not forgotten, but at the same time I don't live in it everyday. Infertility will forever echo in my life, but know that it is possible to let go and...

KJ_mom's Blog > An update from an oldie

Posted KJ_mom on 21 July 2014 - 01:25 PM

I haven't been on this board since 2011 and while it looks like all the names have changed since I used to actively post here, I still thought I should come back and share my story.
Here is a link to my blog when DH and I stopped TTC in September 2011 which gives you the background on our reproductive history.

Bella16's Blog > I am hurt; I am lost. I am defeated and I am broken.

Posted Bella16 on 04 March 2015 - 01:42 AM

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...

You are not alone in your roller coaster feelings. I know now after just a few weeks of being on this site that I am not alone either. I want to thank everyone who is brave enough to share and educate others. I must ask God to help me with my up and down feelings...maybe you relate .. YOU ARE NOT ALONE When at random times you cry when you see c...

There will always be a next step... > We could move mountains...

This past weekend was spent with fabulous friends in Ottawa. We were brought together here at under the most trying circumstances and somehow we found each other... We are kept physically apart by the geographical distance between us, but together we stand beside each other, even if it is "virtually" most times, stronger than most forces of na...

The Echo of Infertility > Still Echoing

Posted DesignerBug on 24 February 2016 - 08:10 PM

In 2003 when we decided "we'd chance" getting pregnant we would have never in a million years guessed what lay ahead. In fact, it's likely a good thing that we didn't know what was to come, as I'm pretty sure it would have been enough to just walk away without even trying.
The nearly 6 years it took us to conceive gave us a lot more than just...

amazing grace's Blog > MY ADVICE TO ALL OF YOU!

Posted amazing grace on 04 February 2015 - 08:05 PM

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...............

So were the days of OUR lives... > How did I ever get here?

Posted Hoping4_1 on 18 August 2014 - 08:32 AM

As I look back on my journey I'll never forget when I first joined here. I was looking through some signatures and was showing my DH how some women here have gone through so many treatments. Shortly after that I got pregnant with twins on my first IVF. Never did I think I'd end up with my signature.
Now my signature is long, 2 IVF's and going...

Posted s00n on 27 February 2017 - 03:41 PM

We had our 12 week IPS screening for abnormalities today. For DH it was a chance to see on US that we still had a heartbeat and a baby in there. Way back at the start of this all I had a slight positive line, and we got excited, and since then, and IF struggles, he's always found it hard to commit to excitement.
I didn't realize last night how TENS...
