AMA (42 yo), 2 IUIs and 3 IVFs...
Here are the two wonderful results of the third IVF!

Thanks Dr. Gordon and all of Dominion!!

We need to come and visit soon...

There will NEVER be any way that we can fully express our gratitude...

Wow, you have double the fun! Congratulations, Rebecca.
I'm really early in my pregnancy (NCIVF) and I'm wondering if it's normal to feel so exhausted. I just realized I slept most of this weekend! I really need to read up on pregnancy, I spent so much energy educating myself on getting pregnant that I feel quite clueless about pregnancy.

Congratulations Rebecca, your bundles of joy bring back happy memories for me. My boy/girl twins (12 years old) went to overnight camp today, and I long for those days when I could tuck them in at night and solve all their problems with easily.

My typo at the end of that sentence means I need to get some sleep...G'nite

AAF~Definitely felt the same way as you...knew as much as I ever wanted to know about the getting pg part...but was at a loss once I got pregnant.

I have to be honest, I didn't read up much on it. I actually read "The Girlfriends' Guide to Pregnancy"...more of a humor book than anything else. I really relied a lot on my OBs, and because I was pg with twins, I was there quite a bit.

Sleeping and being tired is really very normal...biggest warning I can give is to prepare yourself for the coming and going of symptoms this early on...don't let it worry you.

Best of luck!

Rebecca

Hi AAF- I'm a NCIVF success, the exhaustion you feel in early pregnancy is totally normal, it was hardest symptom of pregnancy for me. I was prepared for morning sickness, weird cravings, and I was actually reassured by those things. I needed the typical pregnancy symptoms to help me believe it actually worked! I hope you have a wonderful pregnancy.

Has anyone had a CVS? My OB recommended one and I'm scheduled for next week, but I'm kind of concerned about the risk of m/c.
Comment by Rebecca L-H on August 2, 2009 at 2:15pm
Yes, I had two very different experiences...I would be happy to share my story if it would help. But I hesitate to share in an open forum, because, while our story has a happy ending, we did have some significant 'issues' on our journey. I don't want to worry anyone, because our issues were most likely due to my age and had NOTHING to do with the CVS procedure itself. Is there a PM option?
Comment by AV on August 5, 2009 at 10:28pm
Hi AAF, I had a CVS at 12 wks and it was stressful but we were so happy when we got the results. I think it was at that point that I truly believed I may have a baby...he's amazing and gets bigger everyday.
Comment by AAF on August 25, 2009 at 4:03pm
Got the CVS results and everything is GOOD, thank you for your support.

"    Hi Karen,           PCOS can be frustrating, but it's great that letrozole worked for ovulation so you're on the right path to a BFP!  Keep us posted on your cycle :)"

"MindyK, Congratulations! I hope you have an easy pregnancy. I am staying positive and hoping that the second round takes. My take away from the last cycle is that the letrozole worked and that I am one step closer to pregnancy. Karen"

It finally happened! We are pregnant!

I posted my first entry on this site sometime around October or November of 2014, and I want to share my experience with everyone in hopes to offer some encouragement.My husband and I came to DF after three years trying to conceive. I have PCOS and was told by my GYN that I would either never have children or it would be incredibly difficult to get pregnant. We saw Dr. Payson for the initial consult in October, and after the initial testing, we came back for a follow-up on 11/6/14.

When to try for second Ivf baby

I conceived a child through ncivf at dominion and am interested in when would be a good amount of time before trying for a second one. We know we will need to do IVF again and I'm unsure how that affects timing- does it? I also had a c-section- does that affect when to do another Ivf cycle? Also is breastfeeding a problem? I got my cycle back after two months and my baby is now twelve months old. Is it okay to do Ivf while breastfeeding? What about only minimal breastfeeding when the baby is…See More
