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.
