Please help me pray for another baby
Hi, I am 35 years old and my husband is 39 years. We have a 4 years old daughter that we conceived naturally with no problem. We have been trying for over one year for another baby with no success. We went to an infertility specialist and performed some tests for both of us.
Everything for me came back fine, but my husband has very low sperm morphology (4%). We have had 3 IUIs already. The first IUI I had a positive pregnancy, but then turned to a chemical pregnancy, not sure why. With the second IUI I had a negative pregnancy. I had the third one and will go for a pregnancy test this Thursday, but I really don't have much hope.
However, I don't want to give up. Could all of you out there help me pray for a POSITIVE pregnancy test this Thursday! I don't know what to do if we don't have success again this time. I don't want to do more because mentally I am very stressed and I can handle anymore...please, please help me pray!
trying to get pregnantMy husband and I have worked many months with doctors and finally we tried IUI for the first cycle and the second cycle and both cycles failed.
Now I went to see a different doctor to get different opinion. The doctor that I went to see told me that I have PID. He recommends me to do IVF as soon as possible. But the chances are 40-50% to get pregnant with IVF.
I don't know if I should do IVF because IVF costs a lot of money. I would do it if there were a chance of me getting pregnant.
IVF/ICSII too, am a 40 yr. old woman, my husband 43. We have been trying to have a baby now for 5 years. The past 2 years we have been with a fertility clinic. I have undergone 4 IUIs, and am now on our 3rd attempt at IVF/ICSI. I just had my transfer this past Monday, with 2 good embryos.
My husband was diagnosed with poor mobility, as well as a very low count. IVF/ICSI is the best route to try. They recommend ICSI for low counts because they inject the sperm directly into the egg, for fertilization, and sperm count or mobility aren't a factor with this procedure, for they wash the sperm, and take the best ones, and again, they are injecting the sperm themselves into the egg, so probability of fertilization is high.
Speaking from personal experience, I wouldn't do too many cycles of IUIs. Chances are lower, (although, it can happen) but it didn't with me, and I realized I needed to be more aggressive, and IVF/ICSI was the treatment we needed to be doing.
I recommend it; the odds are more in your favor. It is pretty extensive, but at least you'll know you really tried! Good luck, you can do it, and your miracle baby will come, don't give up!!!
Best wishes to you....
There is hope yetHello everyone, I am 30 years old, my future husband (who is 34) and I have been trying to conceive on and off for almost five years now. You are probably thinking why on and off, but I would get so into trying to conceive and sometimes I would be certain that I was pregnant that I would get so depressed when I would find out I was not.
Ever since I was a little girl I would dream about having my own children someday but when I was 19 I was diagnosed with endometriosis, and after years of studying it I had come to the conclusion that that was why I was unable to have children.
Recently I came across a product called ovulex and have been doing some research on it, it really looks hopeful when I read some of the stories. I am the type of person that when I think something will work I get my hopes up real high, so Iím really considering ordering ovulex.
I can't imagine my life without children of my own.
Thanks for reading.
DevastatedI am 35 years old and have raised my husbandís two children and I am now ready to have my own. The problem is my husband does not want to have anymore.
We have been trying for 3 years and recently I had surgery and found out I have endometriosis, closed tubes and an ovary lodged in the back of my uterus. I do not know what to do.
I desperately want a child of my own but unless it comes naturally my husband is not willing to do anything about it.
