Frozen Embies

Frozen Embies

Before we began IVF we thought we had all the answers to all our questions. What we didn't know is that we didn't have all the questions. We thought about it, prayed about it, asked about it, and searched out what information we could to educate and prepare ourselves. We felt that we knew all [...]

Worth the wait.

Having a baby after infertility, and miscarriage may make one assume that all the hurt has been healed. Wrong. We struggled with infertility for 2.5 years before getting pregnant. We were on cloud nine. Then shortly after the excitement and idea of finally being pregnant set in, we lost the baby. Bitterness, anger, sorrow, devastation, frustration, [...]

The Teeniest, Tinniest, Mightiest Heartbeat I Ever Did Hear…

I was under educated about the possibility of Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome (OHSS), and I actually thought once I got to the trigger I was out of the woods. Little did I know the HCG [...]

Eggs…retrieved!

26! That's how many eggs were retrieved today! I knew to expect a lot from what doc said about my follicles, but I didn't think we would get that many. Five are too immature to fertilize and one was dead so that still leaves us with 20 mature to fertilize! We will get a call [...]
