: : I am scheduled for my second IVF in August. The first try was unsuccessfull. Can anybody give me some words of encouragement or success stories? Actually if you want to tell me about a similar experience that would be good.

: : Thanks

: Franca,
: I experienced just what you are going through. Our second IVF procedures worked and we now have a five year old daughter.
: She is our blessing from God. The waiting is the worst part, I think. Two weeks after the embryo transfer we were supposed to
: go to the doctor for bloodwork to see if it took. Well, we decided to do a home pregnancy test at home the night before and it
: was positive so we knew even before the doctor told us.

: Also, three and a half years after our daughter was born we decided to try IVF again. We had just begun the first series of shots
: when my period did not start on time. I was pregnant, got that way naturally. We have a son now who is 18 months. He is also a miracle
: because the doctor had said there was a slim to no chance that we would conceive on our own.

: Once a woman becomes pregnanct and has a successful pregnancy, the chances increase that we will again.

: Good Luck and let me know if you have any other questions.

: Natalie

Hi Natalie if you see this message I do want to ask you if possible what was keeping you from getting pregnagnt? I have hydrosalphinx and my tubes are full of scartissue. My doctors had to close my tubes because if I ever get pregnant, with or without IVF, the liquid that is secreted is toxic for the fetus. Pratically all chances of getting pregnant naturally are excluded for me.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful story though. Sometimes It just seems like a dream. I will keep you posted on how the process goes.
