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.

My Patient called Natural Cycle IVF “Awesome, a great experience”

In contrasting Natural Cycle IVF (NCIVF) to stimulated IVF, there is nothing better than hearing from a patient’s perspective. So, I thought I would share with you this patient’s story that involved both types of IVF.In October, 2014, I first met this lovely 36 year old lady who had previously underwent unsuccessfully 3 cycles of clomid- IUI at another local fertility clinic in 2011. She was then treated using stimulated IVF with 2 embryos transferred and this resulted in her first successful…See More

"Newest Infertility Technologies"

The June issue of Washingtonian Magazine has a short article regarding the latest infertility treatments in which I was quoted. I related that egg freezing and particularly PGS have made significant improvements and can be most beneficial. As you can see from one of my previous posts here, PGS is an excellent method that we routinely use to insure optimal embryo quality. I highly recommend it to almost all of my IVF patients and the cost for this procedure will soon be rapidly dropping as many…See More
