  • Bonnie, you sound a little like me although I had different problems than you have. I got pg alot, I always m/c. I read your post to Rose. Did you go to Clear Passage in Florida? I considered going there. I wanted to leave no stone unturned. My last hope was antibiotic treatment. A few months before my pg, I went to see Dr. Toth (unexplained infertility and bacterial infection guru). He does treatment that no other doctor does - somewhat controversial to other drs. I did uterine lavages. My legs in stirrups for 1 hour for 5 days in a row with antibiotics pumped into my uterus. I also wore an IV pump for 10 days and had antibiotics going through my veins 24/7. I did another round of IV (ampicillin) when I got my positive beta.

    It's amazing what we will put our bodies through to have babies. In the end, none of the pain or money spent even matters.

    Good Luck.

  • Yes I went to Clear Passages. It was heaven! Although it didn't do me any good b/c of the TB in the tubes that we didn't know about then...they were great though and it was a wonderful experience
    I have heard of Dr Toth and know another gal who went through his program. She has had 7 or more IVF's and everything else one could do, with no good results. Her marriage ended over the stress of the infertility too....My dh and I have decided that we would give this three rounds and if it doesn't work, then we will move on. That is the deal we made with each other...who knows how I will feel after three attempts if it doesn't work-I may want to alter our deal!

    I'm so happy that all of your efforts were worth it! It sounds like you have a couple of perfect bundles

  • Bonnie. Dh and I decided on two rounds but secretly I decided to keep trying until all our embies where gone. Which turned out to be two rounds! I have 11 to start with, they put in two, BFN then put in 3 for a FET and viola, one stuck. BUT they used all NINE of my frozen embies just to get the three. I was really disappointed but it turned out fantastic in the end. I'd still like to have another after this one but looks like we'll do adoption. We're BROKE! Good luck!!! Leslie

  • Ya, it gets expensive financially as well as emotionally! I feel a bit frustrated knowing that there really isn't anything else I can do to make this work...I'm trying to think more like a fatalist-"if it is meant to be it will be"-it is difficult if not impossible to do!!!!

  • I tried that for awhile too but decided on a more posititve approach. It turned from "meant to be" to "when we have the baby". I'm also excited about adoption options. My dh was always against but I think he changed his mind when he realized we really are only going to have one baby. That's it!! The mind is a powerful thing Bonnie. Leslie
