Ivf pregnancy forum??

Ivf pregnancy forum??

As the title says, I’m looking for a ivf pregnancy forum, I have been feeling a little lost the last few weeks, I sort of don’t know where I belong anymore, I feel wrong for writing on here as so many of you amazing ladies have been through a terrible time and I wouldn’t want to upset any one reading about all my worries and concerns but I also don’t feel i fit in the pregnancy forums, some of the questions and comments I find almost upsetting!

Yesterday I just couldn’t resist buying this support pillow, it reminded me that we are carrying a special baby because he/she is an ivf baby! We have been through incredibly sad years, difficult years and also emotionally challenging years to get this amazing miracle! So I think we will forever be on this ivf journey as we will always be incredibly grateful that we finally got our wish!!

I hope you are all doing ok what ever stage you are all at, and I hope you get your good news soon! 💫

I was just going to suggest the Facebook page. Please don’t feel the need to leave here. Positive stories absolutely keep me going, if it wasn’t for seeing them I would have probably had to leave this group and maybe even given up on ivf altogether. Positive stories help me to believe xx

I was definitely the same, I was just worried I might upset someone when I’m worried about every tiny thing! I literally say to myself sometimes get a grip 🙄 I’ll definitely look at the fb one, I won’t leave here tho I like to see how people are getting on, it’s weird isn’t it, it’s like we’re here for each other at the worst times of each other’s lives without ever meeting each other 💕 xx

Congratulations for having the baby... he/she is going to be really a very special child because after the years of struggle you both gonna love the baby immensely ... like madly. The pillow is really cute. The best part of being in this forum is that you can be yourself... no pretentions, no hiding the desperate need for a baby... feel free to post in here. We all are sailing in the same boat and understand each other, any positive news is a dose of hope for us. Stay well and take good care on yourself!

Yes, because they know the pain and how it feels to have had futile TTCs. No one can really be insensitive to a situation they have been crying every single day for. I hope no one ever goes through such a painful fertility journey if that can be avoided. :) I'm doing good... my IVF failed so I have to go for donor conception.... I'm on it. Hope there will be some good outcome soon. :) Staying positive for now and counting on it. Please do pray for me! Meanwhile, you stay well and have a happy time. Enjoy your gestation and rest sufficiently! :)

Love the pillow!! 😍

I agree, I do use the NCT forum on here but it’s not the same as this forum. I like to stick around to see how everyone is getting on and all the girls still offer so much support 😀 xxx

17 weeks now! Still a nervous wreck about everything! Luckily I get scans every few weeks still so that makes me a little calmer! How far are you? This is actually one of my only purchases as I’m still to worried to buy big things just in case xx

There’s a Facebook group that one of the lovely ladies on here set up a little while ago for exactly the reason you described. It’s been set up as a secret group so that noone’s Facebook friends can see that they are in a pregnancy group (for if they haven’t announced yet or you don’t want friends to know about IVF). If you send me your Facebook email then I can add you to that if you like? A few ladies joined when it was first set up but if you missed that thread or weren’t pregnant at the time then you’d have no way of knowing it existed so there have been fewer new members lately.

Hi, looby. You are right this post may upset some people. But I think it can motivate others as well. I think failures in IVF are common these days. Your success story will surely inspire others. I like the way you defined your struggle. It is indeed an emotional phase of life. I am happy for you. I wish you the best in future.

Bless you!! I love this pillow where is it from? Need it in my life!!!!

I love hearing positive stories. Plus Once your miracle is here you may want another one and then you will need the forum support again.

That’s what I did, I had my 1st baby via IVF 19 months ago and used this forum, then recently started again when I had my most recent transfer.
