Read my article in NOW magazine "Fertility Shock"

Posted by geniegirl , 18 October 2012 · 1997 views

I wrote this post due to the closure of Jan Silverman's Infertility Support and Education Program at Women's College Hospital. Many of you may know her for the amazing work she has done over the years. She literally saved me from a suicidal brink. Here's the link and I'll also cut and paste the article. It's just been published in Toro...

Wow, it's real!
Five years of tears, procedures, blood-letting, counselling, support groups - and worth every single moment. Will blog the full details soon! I've been at Sunnybrook the last few days in recovery. Wow, the whole c-section thing is no cakewalk - had a panic attack basically on the operating table. But whatever, it's all in the past now and at l...

Long Time No Blog...

24 Weeks
Just like the journey of infertility, pregnancy can feel alot like waiting (for the other shoe to drop). It's taken me a LONG time to celebrate, to embrace this pregnancy - to believe that I wasn't going to miscarry. And now, here I am at almost 6 months (will be there in one week) - and it's an absolute miracle to me that I'm still here,...

Sitting Pretty At 15 Weeks!!!!!!!!!

I'm amazed, I'm grateful, I'm thrilled to be pregnant after 3 years on this forum and NUMEROUS attempts. I sincerely pray for the day when women like me, who look perfectly 'normal' on paper (yet who have crappy eggs) can have their medical problem identified sooner. The quicker that women know they HAVE to resort to a donor egg - the...

10 weeks and counting....

It truly is a miracle that I have gotten this far in my pregnancy. The only reason I have gone this far is because of donor eggs. Had I tried one last IVF with my own, I am sure more tragedy would have ensued. I may never know exactly why my eggs showed abnormalities or fractures - but the happy fact remains that I'm at least past the point of 'ha...

Shock. Disbelief. I mean complete disbelief!!! I caused a bit of a scene in the clinic because, like mollygirl123, I expected the worst. No nausea - no pregnancy symptoms. I was really crying and just didn't think I could handle another missed miscarriage. Already been through 2! But really, I thought that was what I was headed towards...
