    36 is still young, let me tell you. Just keep going. I know it gets so tiring at times. However, your best move is to just keep trying I guess. So, are you about to start your heparin injections? So, you live far away, and you have to postpone. So sorry to hear that. We just have to accept that these things occur in life, and move on. Keep…[Read more]

  • Noreen, that is so selfless of you to do that. I love when relatives can jump in & help like that. As others have said it, surrogacy can be expensive for some people.

    Also, regarding your mother-in-law, that is a typical mother-in-law behavior. I always hear or read stories about how mother-in-laws tend to point the finger at the wife. I know why they might get so protective of their sons. Still, you should encourage your DH to go get spermogram done to see the results. That way, your mother-in-law won’t be p…[Read more]

Also, g…[Read more]

    Hi, Lisa. So sorry to hear about your experience. I can imagine how hard it must be for you to go through laparoscopy and IVF, still not make it.
