Don't Count Your Eggs

Hi Sylvia! Thanks for reading along. Sorry you're the last gal standing, I totally get it. Men at my office started having babies in the time I've been trying. I'm literally the last gal! Sorry things haven't been working out for you, I TOTALLY get that too. Hopefully the new year brings new luck for both of us. I was put on 8 vials of menopur at one time on my journey and understand the fears of upping the meds. I lived through it, but then again my body kind of doesn't care about meds. Good luck!


Sorry, I just realize your name is Maya, not Jen. But hi to Jen too! :) it's so great to connect with other women going through similar situations. I have a few friends that were in our situation, but they are all now busy moms and I'm now the " last women" standing, and I felt pretty isolated till reading this blog, again thank you for sharing


I have to say that reading your blog, was as if you were reading my mind. Thank you for sharing. My husband and I have been trying for 4 years, and have hit road block after road block. I also have a dx of unexplained infertility. And half way through our work up a few years back before we started iui/Ivf, I had an emergent surgery due to an ovarian cyst/torsion which resulted in a losing an ovary/Fallopian tube. I was devastated, I felt that I was already defeated before even starting on this journey, after a long recovery and more testing we have been through 3 iui, and 1 failed IVF, that turned into another iui, because I only produced 2good follicles. Now we are on a bit of a break till the new year and this time around we will start at higher dosing. Which slightly terrifies me because I felt like a crazy person before, I can't even imagine what doubling up on medications will do to me, but at this point all I can do is keep trying. So I can relate to your determination and your story.

Hi Dani,
Thanks for following. Nice to have things in common but I do wish it was the same stroller and complaint of how expensive mommy and me classes are. Nice to know we're not alone but still...ugh. Hopefully your luck will turn around soon! Wishing you the best.


Hi there,

I don't remember how I came across your blog, but I'm glad I did. I'm also 33, also in Los Angeles, also been trying for a couple of years, also have a track record of failed IUIs and IVF, also got a diagnosis of unexplained infertility and now maybe, possibly, an egg problem. So while I wish what we had in common was, 33 in Los Angeles with children-- if that's not the way the cookie's gonna crumble, I thank you for sharing your stories.

Hi Jen,
Welcome and thanks for following along. Sorry you're going through this too but know you're totally not alone. It's soooo confusing and exhausting and frustrating! Hope you find a little relief this weekend. Noah just said, "Take your sweatpants off, we're going to watch some old Italian movies." To which I replied, "ok" while shoveling these delicious chocolate peanut butter treats into my face. Sometimes you just have to get out. Sending you lots of good thoughts.


Thank you for sharing your experience with us each day. I recently found your blog as I face very similar challenges as you and Noah. Going through IF is such a confusing and emotionally exhausting ordeal and I have found your writing to be a source of perspective and healing. I can't thank you enough for putting your thoughts and energy out here to share.
