These boards are a wonderful place to come for support. Have you ever thought about talking to a counselor for help with the depression. Going through IVF is an extremely emotional, stressful, and trying experience. I am not trying to be negative or tell you what to do. I just want you to be aware of what you are facing. I hope everything goes great for you! I have a lot of IVF info on my blog if you would like to check it out. (The link is in my signature.) I would be glad to answer any questions you have, I went through 6 cycles before having my little miracle boy.
