wondering if this is a thing, do you find that your IVF/FET babies are more advance than the non IVF?FET babies? this is the case among my little man's peers so far, seeing if i'm alone on this.

Im not sure if IVF / FET babies are more advanced but babies learn at different rates and brains develop at different rates. Some babies may be more advanced and their peers may catch up. My son is almost four and hes ahead of his peers in speech and problem solving skills. I think part of this is because hes a only child and we speak to him a lot and dont use baby talk. His problem solving skills are just because thats how he is.

If your baby is ahead when hes older then that is a better indication of his skill level.

Even with my son he is ahead in lots of skills but we really dont know if hes advanced.

Apparently Einstein didnt speak until he was four.

On never knows.

I have wondered this exact thing! I know parents are biased when it comes to their kids, but I have lots of medical professionals in the family and weve received lots of feedback about how ahead of the game our son is, physically and mentally...and this is from people who dont know about our IF journey. I wonder if there has been any studies done on this. Our guy is a FET baby so DH and I joke that hes super wise because he has been around way longer than 10 months in the womb and 7 months on the outside!! His peers are inexperienced in comparison!

Started IVF journey in 2012,3 fresh cycles and 3 FET attempts with first RE resulted in 3 BFNs and 3 cancelled transfers. No BFPs, no chemicals, never even seen a double line on HPT. cry.gif

Changed REs in 2015. Repeated all tests and decided to bank embryos for PGS testing due to history of BFNs. After 3 cycles and PGS testing - finally achieved 2 PGS normal embryos.banana.gifbanana.gif RE suggested ERA testing to determine implantation window.Mock cycle in May 2016 and July 2016, receptive results showing that 7 days of progesterone support required.

Of course everyone thinks there baby/child is smart but it is also bad to give labels to your child so young. If your child is advanced then youll figure it out in time.

Some babies walk at ten months old and some people may think thats advanced. Whereas lots of babies that walk early may be on the smaller side. Bigger babies walk later as they need more muscle to carry a heavier body.

I would not label your child yet as that sets up expectations that may be unattainable in the future. Many children are advanced in one or two areas and may lack in others.

If your child is truly advanced, way smarter than the average joe, then it will be obvious in time.
