Hey that's sweet. I came round singing the songs from "Cabaret". (I enjoyed the drugs a bit too much!)

5 bites at the IVF cherry, no 2 lines, no babies, despite some "good" cycles.

NK cells tested March17th 2010. HIGHLY ELEVATED - 24%

When did I realize I was God? Well, I was praying and I suddenly realized I was talking to myself.

At my embryo transfer day, they have room with spa setting, chocolate, white towels, spa lighting and music, dr checked me and everything looks good, she told me to relax a few minutes before she gets my embryos, I was lying down there for a short while, all of sudden I had a really bad cramp, I had to go to washroom to do the #2, I wraped myself with blanket and rush out of the room, my dr came back with my embryos but I was missing.... I was quite embarrassed ....or maybe that is the trick I got pregnant with triplet, use the washroom before the transfer not after...hehe...

I totally (accidentally) sold out DH during our andrologist appointment. The andrologist asked him to produce a sperm sample if he had been abstinent for more than 48 hours....DH responded that he couldn't because it was under that timeframe and I opened my mouth and said 'of course you can....we haven't had....oh....I get it'. The andrologist went a bright shade of red and kinda mumbled that sometimes that happens...oops.

Most embarrassing moment for me was after a loss.
RE had confirmed with u/s that there was no hb, but wanted me to go to the hospital to confirm.

Went to radiology dept. Have connections there, so was squeezed in ASAP.
Was whipping my pants off for e/v u/s. And tech walked in. Me sans pants.

They don't do e/v u/s even for early preg loss, b/c they actually know what they're doing.
Even more embarrassing, though not for me, was that the quality of images was SO much better, using the same machine trans abdominal.

Believe it or not, a radiology tech can do better u/s than my RE.
But the embarrassing part, was just the pants, the rest was just par for the course in my ART journey.

My worst moment happened outside the clinic.

I'm at a party....and a friend of mine wants to introduce me to her friend. So I turn around to meet this friend, only to discover that this friend is the DOCTOR who did all my vaginal ultrasounds and my IUI !!!
The dr. and I were both so shocked it was so obvious that we knew each other, people around us were all like "omg how do you two know each other!!"
SMALL FREAKIN WORLD!! I was so embarassed that I was red and laughing the entire night.

It was 5am and we went to the clinic for our first IUI. The problem started when the doc didn't know the code to shut off the security system. My DH disappears to the washroom to collect his sample. But the doc keeps trying different codes to turn off the alarm. Eventually the alarm stops in the clinic but then the alarm goes off in the whole mall. The doc and I start chatting as we wait for my DH. Half an hour goes by. So when the doctor starts talking on the phone with the security company, I sneak off down the hall to check on my husband. "is everything OK in there?" I ask. "This isn't easy to do with the alarms going off and me hearing my wife talking to some guy." explains DH. So I go in to "help". I don't this that doctor will ever forget us.

So i am a single female using donor sperm. But I am a progressive woman who has a friend with benefits.


I live in on city and he lives in another, which just happens to be the same city that I do my treatments in. Because I am single no one at the clinic had the chat with me about not having sex before treatments.


So I am in the city for a few nights and have a hotel room and well,  we are not wasting that opportunity, so basically he is living at the hotel with me and we are enjoying each others company.


I go in to do my IUI and find out they can use any lube to put the speculum in.  There is no mucus and i have seen alot of action down there in the last few days. I was in so much pain, as the nurse tries to do the IUI.  To add insult to injury I have a weirdly placed cervix and she can't quite get the speculum placed properly.  At point we had to stop so I could do some yoga breathing, to relax.


it wasn't funny then, but now it is.

At one of my IUI's the nurse handed me the vial of DH's sperm and asked me if it 'looked right'.  I had no idea what she was asking me so I held it up to look at and said "ummm yes?  They all look just like him." 


It turned out she was asking me to confirm that the name on the side of the vial was right, but she handed it to me with the name facing away from me so I didn't even know there was a name on the vial.  We were both really embarrassed!

Not quite a clinic moment but...

During one of our pregnancies that eventually failed, I was doing a lot of urine tests. Instead of always going to the clinic I got a bunch of pee cups and would just drop them off at my local life labs office. I'm also a photographer and the same day went to drop off real film at a local shop for development. I reached into my coat, grabbed and handed something over to the developer. The look on his face as he refused to grab my bottle of pee said it all. I kept it together in the store but lost it once I left!
