I was told on Friday 21 June 2013 that the best chance my husband and I have of having a baby of our own, is IVF. I'm 35 and he has poor quality sperm, so the doctor said that any other treatments would just be a waste of my time and our money. It was really awful to hear, but we've made peace with it and now have to work towards IVF and a baby as our ultimate goal.
However, I have to lose 40lbs before the doctor will even DO the IVF procedure, since he wants me to be as healthy as possible before we try to fal pregnant. I have to do this by end 2013, so the pressure's really on.
I was wondering whether any other ladies have had to do deadline-based weight loss for IVF? Any advice on how to cope with the pressure and worry of failure? What was your most successful strategy towards success? AND how many times did you try IVF before you were pregnant? We can only afford to do it ONCE, even with financial assistance from my in-laws!
