Hi - I haven't posted in a long time. I wanted to give women hope. We began trying in Nov 2006, we didn't become pregnant. We saw a specialist in 2008 and my first iuis started in Aug 2008. I think I did 5 iuis. None of them took. We moved onto IVF, first one in April 2009, it didn't take. I was devastated. I just thought it would work. We moved on to #2 IVF, also didn't take. In Sept 2009 we did #3. I am so thrilled to say that I am pregnant, due June 6 2010.


I know its so hard to go through the process of IVF, and injecting yourself. We had no diagnosis, just weren't getting pregnant. Oh, I am 37 and hubby is 36, I will turn 38 June 11, so maybe the baby will share my birthday, we shall see.


I just wanted to tell everyone to keep a positive attitude. Eat well. Try acupuncture, see how you feel about it. I had two sessions on the day of the egg transfer. Half hour before transfer and half hour or so after transfer. I don't know if it helped, but maybe it did, maybe it made me feel less stressed. I also tried meditation, mostly to unwind. It doesn't hurt.


Good Luck to all and believe it can happen and don't give up. I know my history isn't as complicated as some but I wanted to share.

Thanks for sharing! We just went through our first round of IVF and beta was negative. Im 27 DH is 29 we have been TTC for 5 years with no luck, started seeing a RE and found out that I have complete blockage in both tubes. When we started out first cycle we both were just so opitmistic about it and just really thought that it would take on the first try so I was really down when we got the news last week that it didnt work. For us we retrieved 15-9 were mature, 6 fertilized we trasnfered 2 ( 3dt) and we were going to freeze the other 4 but they didnt make it so we are looking at a whole fresh cycle in April I believe. Im really excited but Im going to relax more and try not to think about everything!! Accupuntcure? I have never thought of that, maybe that is something I will try this time around!
