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.

Got the CVS results and everything is GOOD, thank you for your support.

Celiac Disease and Fertility

Recently a few patients have asked me about celiac disease, gluten and infertility, so I decided to just write a few words about it. Celiac disease, also known as gluten-sensitive enteropathy, is a chronic disorder of the digestive tract in which individuals cannot tolerate gliadin, which is a component of gluten and can be found in wheat, barley and rye. Gliadin actually gives bread the ability to rise properly during baking. When gliadin is ingested by someone with celiac disease, it causes…See More

We Practice What We Preach......

It is well known that exercise is good for us. There are stacks upon stacks of research articles that tell us how exercise can lower blood pressure, lower stress, improve sleep and provide an overall sense of well – being.  At Dominion Fertility, we promote moderate exercise as part of a holistic approach to fertility treatment. Of course this doesn't mean training for a marathon, but getting some form of moderate exercise every day and maintaining a normal BMI can increase your chance of…See More

What I've Learned About Insurance and Family Advocacy... By our Nursing Coordinator, Sam Smith R.N

In May, Eddie's dad had to be put into a rehabilitation facility after falling because of his arthritis. He has Humana insurance. The initial approval for his stay was up to 20 days- clearly not enough time for him to recover and be able to go home. I was told by the business office of the nursing home that his coverage would end and he would be billed the self pay rate of $310 / day after day 21 and we would have to pay that up front each month. The bill came to about $9500 initially. I asked…See More
