View Full Version : I.V.F - An emotional rollacoaster
Hello my name is Mirenesse, and I live in Adelaide. A few days ago my partner and I have learnt that they only way that we both can conceive a baby was through the IVF programme. I suffer from PCOS (only the syndrome I do not have the cists) and my other half has a low sperm count. The news come to us as a big shock. IVF never really entered our minds until by doctor mention it that night. That night we didn't say a word about it and acted as if nothing happened. The next day it hit me hard the realisation that we were never going to conceive natually was heart breaking. I went to work and really couldn't concentrate. That night it was my mother in law birthday. Some birthday as we deceided to tell them the news. I think they were in more shock then we were. Tonight we are going to tell my parents and my brother. I think the more people that know the more support you will have out there. We haven't deceived when we will start IVF but I think I rather start it now rather than later.
Hi :wave: and welcome to BH.
I'm sorry you are going through such an emotional time :hugs: . It's so hard when you are told that you will never have a child the natural way but believe me when your little IVF baby is placed in your arms you will forget about all of that.
our DS is the result of IVF and we are so glad that we went through the journey with all its up and downs because without it our life would never of been complete.
there's a couple of really good threads where the IVF mums hang out so if you haven't already you should check them out as you'll have all of your questions answered and they are a really lovely bunch of girls and you'll get all the support you need. You never know your DH might also sneak a peek.
GOOD LUCK with it all
If you go to First IVF Cycle in a Few Days part 2 you'll find heaps of people who have been through or are going through IVF (and other forms of ART). They are the most wonderfully caring and sharing people so I thoroughly recommend it!
Hope to see you there. It is a shock to find you can't conceive naturally and to "talk" to others in similar situations can really help.
As Miss Ellie said, come join us in the thread... First IVF Cycle in a Few Days part 2
Everyone hangs out there and all the girls are so nice!
Good Luck with your IVF Journey!
I have PCOS and DH had 30% motility problems, we did IVF and now have a beautiful daughter...I totally agree with not waiting ( we started at 26), I wish you all the best and at least when you do have a transfer you know that you are in with a real chance.
Hi Mirenesse .
Welcome to BH ...
One thing you have to know : you are NOT alone :no:
My DH and I have been trying to conceive for 2 years and a half before you found out that IVF was our only solution ... big shock specially for DH ..
Anyway , I'm today pregnant after a first cycle with IVF ... so YES , IVF works ...:thumbsup:
As it had been said before , you can find great help on the thread : " First IVF Cycle in a Few Days part 2 " . You will find Ladies who just started IVF , some who are still trying and some who are getting pregnant like the 2 Ladies last week ....
Hang on there ... it's hard but it worth it ...:yes:
Good luck and take care.
A tip : if you want to join the thread " First cycle .... " , and if you and your DH decide to go through IVF , let us know where you will go so other Ladies can help you ... I don't know if there are different IVF clinics in Adelaide .
Best of luck on your IVF journey:fingerscrossed: . Our little Miracle also came from our first IVF cycle.:D
My beautiful bundles are also a result of IVF. If you do decide to do it dont be put off by all the negative things you have heard about IVF. it is actually a mindblowingly amazing thing that is so interesting. I know its hard but try to look at it in a positive way. My feelings on it is that if you go into it with a good attitude it ends up being a better experience. IVF is just a different way of conceiving, once you are pregnant everything else is exactly the same. Good luck and come here with questions and support, there are loads of us who have been through it.
Sorry guys, i had problems with my computer and only now have reconnected.
Thanks guys for your support. I may just have a read of First IVF Cycle in a Few Days part 2 and meet you guys there for a chat.
