    Hi TigerLissy,
    The IVF journey is definately a hard one, and I too go home crying whenever I hear someone else has gotten pregnant. My sister has just announced a second pregnancy (not planned). I feel like a monster, Ivf has not brought out the best in me. It's not that your not happy for them I think it just brings to the surface such hurtful emotions.

    Good luck with your journey and i hope Bubhub is a great support for you.

    Jay

    Yup, we were the same, we weren't going to say anything, but my DH was soooo excited that we were "moving forward" that he told just about everyone we knew....
    I suppose he really wanted to tell my dad, after my mum passed away 5 years ago, my dad moved away, another state, he said he wanted to move back when the grandiose came, so DH had a heart to heart with my Dad (he is moving back home)
    I think also DH feels guilty, it is am issue with his body that means ivf (icsi) is our best option so he has rallied up all the support, friends and family he could,,, quite sweet my DH
    I have now found it easier to talk about and it is easier for me than trying to keep it all a secret, so yeah

    Good luck to all
    Lots of love

    My DH did the same thing when we started(not what I wanted though), I don't think he planned on failure. It was good to talk to people but now I'd like to STOP talking about it & I wish we had kept it to ourselves. Even work mates know and I feel i can't escape.

    Hang in there luv, did you get a polscope done of your eggs? In the centre of your eggs should be a spindle if not its abnormal (i know with my own experience) maybe thats why they said it was a shell??
    I am taking DHEA to try to improve the quality of my eggs, can you ask your fs about it?
    My boss let the cat out of the bag and it really made me cranky because work is an escape isn't it?
    Luckily my colleagues respect my decision to keep it private to there is no discussion only with my nosey boss, but I have to with her as she helps me out when I have to do the blood tests etc... by covering my shifts at short notice.
    all the best,
    Jen xx

    this came from a website http://www.centerforhumanreprod.com/...e_ovaries.html


    DHEA Beneficial Effects
    The investigators at CHR have been using the mild male hormone dehydroepiandrosterone DHEA now for a number of years very successfully in women with diminished ovarian reserve (DOR), whether their ovarian impairment is due to advanced age or premature ovarian aging (POA). In doing so, we have been able to demonstrate that in such women DHEA supplementation has quite remarkable beneficial effects (see Table 1), which all can be summarized as rejuvenating ovarian function.

    Table 1: EFFECTS OF DHEA IN WOMEN WITH DOR
    Increases egg (oocyte) and embryo counts
    Improves egg and embryo quality
    Increases number of embryos available for embryo transfer
    Increases euploid (chromosomally normal) embryos available
    Speeds up time to pregnancy in fertility treatment
    Increases spontaneously conceived pregnancies
    Improves IVF pregnancy rates
    Improves cumulative pregnancy rates in patients under treatment
    Decreases spontaneous miscarriage rates
    likely reduces aneuploidy (chromosomal abnormalities ) in embryos

    BUT I have also read ppl shouldn't take it over 40? check with your fertility specialists

    Thank you all so much for the info - it's been really helpful to me.
    I've been ready the posts for a few weeks and suddenly decided that I should join in too

    We had our first IVF in December - too many eggs though so ovarian hyperstimulation They got 34 eggs though and we ended up with 10 lovely day 5 embryos to freeze. Now I'm just waiting until I can do a frozen embryo transfer next month. I hope my cycle is not really long after all the overstimulation!!

    Lots of luck to all of you. I hope we're all pregnant soon!

    Jen - Thankyou for your reply. Not sure what a polscope is? Will have to google that one. I'll ask next time I'm at the clinic. I'm writing all the suggestions and advice I get from BH down so that I don't forget to ask when I'm back next. I can't really remember what the embyologist exactly said, once I knew who the call was from I was too upset to listen properly.

    I am currently in my second month of DHEA and the 4 month wait to try IVF again is driving me CRAZY.

    Hi Jay,
    a polscope is a super duper microscope to put it in laymans terms, but again ask your fs to explain properly. it also costs extra, and I do not think it is covered by medicare...my fs charged me $400.00 for it. you can claim it on tax.
    4 months is a long time to wait for your next cycle, why do they make you wait? then you could only end up doing 2 cycles a year?
    I have been doing 4 cycles each year for the last 2 yrs, but I am not getting any younger and time is running out (41). I would not recommend back to back cycles I did that once and it really knocked my ovaries around.
    take care,
    Jen.

    Hi Jen
    My FS wanted the DHEA to have full effect before going ahead. I wanted to continue, considering my AMH is that of an over 40 year old (not that there is anything wrong with that, lol) but DH agreed thinking that it would be a waste of money not to wait for the DHEA. But if the DHEA has no effect then we have wasted soooo much time. This polscope thing might be worth paying for though.
    Jay
