A Taste of IVF Over 40

Archive for September 2007

My first attempt at IVF was a few years ago.  I can’t remember too much about.  It was in Queensland.  I had two embryos transferred, but none left to freeze.  I did get pregnant but the heart stopped beating around 11 or 12 weeks.

I reacted quite traumatically to the physical experience.  My body was really, really sore from the stimulation.  I had a hard time walking upright for at least a month.  Then, when the baby died, well I just put the whole dreadful experience to the back of my mind thinking that I’d start again at some point.
