Thanx all you positive people out there- really nice to hear. It gives me hope that one day y dream of being a mother will come true. I have been with my spouse for 7 years (since high school)- i am 22 and he is 23. We found out two years ago that my spouse is unable have children and i was devistated, all i ever wanted was to be a mom. My younger sister has two kids now and i just feel so outa the loop. I cant undeestand why ivf is soo expensive - it is our only option. I heard of free treaments in eastern canada and wondering if anyone know the detailz- will be expecting to try first ivf in 3 years. Unless of coarse i win the lottery and will buy us all a round of ivf ;) good luck to all u deserving one day moms- take care!
Stay positiveMy partner and I are in the process of trying for our first child. Many people would agree that we are to young(19 & 22) but I know in my heart that I am ment to be a mother.
Due to a health condition, my partner only has a 3% chance of being fertile. At first I found this a very depressing statistic but having spoken to a close friend, my hope has increased. 3% isn't alot, but it's still a chance.
This past week or two I have been feeling a bit off. I've looked up early signs of pregnancy and seem to have quite a few of them. I have my fingers crossed and am hoping for the best.
I know it may feel like there is no hope, but the power of positive thinking is an amazingly strong power. I hope we all get the oppertunity to fulfill our dreams. Good luck to you all.
HiI am touched by all your stories. I have just recently started the IVF cycle with no finacial help from no one just my husband and I. I am 26 years old and have been with my husband for 10 years. We have been married 4 years. I had endometriosis about 3 years ago and had surgrey to fix it. My doctor said we were ok to start trying to have a baby. Well we never got pregnant and fpund out it was my husband. So my doctor recommended IVF and this is such a stressful situation and I hope that it works the first time, bc finacially I dont think we could do it again.
DON'T GIVE UPHi everyone,
I have been reading some of your stories and thought that I would share my own in the hopes that you don't stop trying. My husband and I have been married for 11 1/2 years. we have been together since we were in high school almost 17 yrs. I knew something was wrong in my late teens early twenties when my periods stopped being regular. We also had plenty of whoopsies and I never ended up pregnant. We were married in June of 99 and we started to try to conceive in April of 2000. Nothing was working. I went to my first fertility clinic in 2003. We did the treament with clomid, then moved onto the IUI still nothing. I was very uncomfortable with these doctors. Especially after one of them told me that my trying to get pregnant was like beating a dead horse. I stopped going for a little while. My father in-law suggested that I try this other fetility clinic in our area that he had heard about through his primary doctor. He passed away shortly after telling me about this clinic. I decided to go to the new place about four years ago. They ran tons of test and found that I would only be able to get pregnant via IVF. We moved forward with IVF with the financial backing of my mother in-law. I hyperstimulated and could not transfer on a fresh cycle; I was so upset. I ended up with 14 very good embryo's most A, 6 and 8 cell and a few B, 6 and 8 cells. We transferred 3 with my next cycle. I did get pregnant but miscarried the week before Christmas. This devastated me. It took me 2 years to work up the nerve to try again and I think I only did it because my husband wanted it so badly ( I was to afraid to hurt like that again). We trans 3 embryos on 6/11/10 and I vowed no matter what happened this time I was done because I was done beating my body up emotionally and physically. We found out on 6/28/10 that we were pregnant and on 6/29/10 (my husbands birthday) that we were having triplets. I just finally got to the mind set that if it is meant to be it will be. So please do not give up and look for the positive in every path you are led. GOOD LUCK!!!
