    Well we have tried for nearly 2 years now and no luck. We have decided to have Invitro Fertilization. We started this week. Shots are starting next week. It's very expencive but so worth it.
    Anyone been in this situation or know of anyone?
    Any advice?

    I really would love some prayers though :) :thanks:

    I have two invitro great-nephews and an invitro great-niece. One single birth and a set of twins.

    My friend did IVF, thought it didn't work b/c she started bleeding, she was actually spotting and pg!! After she had her son, she soon became pg on her own with her daughter. Good luck and I will think of you!!

    Good luck! It will happen, I am sure of it!

    Also- it is not the end of the world if it doesn't work the first time. I have a friend and fellow teacher who has went through many cycles of IVF but has a misshappen uterus, so it did not work. She is now expecting twins through a surrogate. Persistance and patience is key!

    No experience-- we opted for adoption.

    But prayers and best wishes to you!

    I know a few that have tried it and am afraid I am headed down the path for male infertility. We shall see. I will pray and think baby thoughts for you!
