HI -


I'm Jen,30, and will be going through my first IVF cycle as soon as AF shows, which should be Thursday or Friday.  I'm nervous, excited, scared, hopeful and well just wanting it to all work out.  But who doesn't, right?


A little background on me... my DH and I conceived our first baby via our 2nd IUI back in Sept 2008.  At 28 weeks, we unfortunately lost our son due to placenta insufficienty and blood clots within.  I delivered my beautiful son after a 24 hour labor induction.  We had no idea anything was wrong as his growth was normal but it all came crashing down within a moment.  Worst day of our lives!


Fast forward to now, we've been trying to get pregnant since July 2009 as we need to wait a few cycles following my stillbirth.  It is April and still not pregnant.  My husband and I decided that IVF was our next step back in Jan and since then we've been preparing for the process.


Well, I think that covers it.  I just wanted to say HI and introduce myself.  I'd love to know if there are any cycle buddies out there.


Thanks,


Jen

Hi Jen,


Welcome to the board. I am sorry to hear about your loss---I can't imagine how painful it must have been to loose your baby at 28 weeks. I hope that you will have lots of luck with this first IVF cycle. Ask lots of questions if you need to---or just seek out some much needed company or support.

Welcome to the boards. I'm sorry to hear about your son, and I wish you all the luck in the world on your IVF cycle. I'm new here too (again), my son was born last year after a successful FET, and we are in the midst of a FET again to try and get him a sib.

I look forward to hearing about your journey!
