Hey everyone. It’s my first time trying ivf. I tried going on another board, but they were way ahead of me. I have an appointment with one doctor on Tuesday. He had a seminar that gave out free consultations. I got one. His stats look pretty good, and his reviews are good. But I’m still not even sure what I’m looking for in a doctor. One of my friends did ivf and she became pregnant her first time with another doctor. I set up a consultation with her, but the first she can see me is August 22nd. My friend had a lot of issues becoming pregnant including over matured eggs and endometriosis. Her doctor has pretty good stats as well. I’m just not sure what to look for or expect. I just wish I could get pregnant today and it would be a nice surprise.
A little about me, I was married for 9 years to an abusive man. I had 2 kids and 2 miscarriages with him. Decided I didn’t want to bring any more kids into the already bad relationship so I had my tubes tied. Low and behold I became pregnant after my tubal ligation and gave birth at 33 weeks to my amazing determined daughter. I had my tubes tied a second time and basically destroyed.
A year later I stood up on my own two feet and took my kids away from the pain and fear. Since then I have married my Prince Charming. He has of course taken my kids in and is in the process of adopting them, but we would like to have a miracle together. So ivf has become our only option.
As much research as I have done I should be able to write a book, but i still feel clueless.
Any help would be appreciated. Or buddies that are first timers soon.
