Hello- I feel kinda silly writing but I wanted to say that your blog is so wonderful to read. I stumbled across it somehow many months ago and it still brings a smile to my face- I just failed my first IVF which was really hard on me so reading success stories like yours make me happy. It's great to see your Phillies pride- I'm a Philly resident myself. Take care, congrats on your gorgeous girls and thanks for the great writing.

Oh one last question- and if you don't wish to answer I totally respect it- but which ivf clinic did you use?

Anon - I very proudly go to Cooper Center for IVF. I have been going so long I have seen every doc in the practice but usually see Dr. Check or Dr. Choe. We used to go to Delaware Valley Institute but found them way expensive for our needs with lower success rates. I highly recommend Cooper.

Also, thanks for the nice comments about my blog. Sometimes I feel like my blog has lost it's "umph". ;D

Thanks for the info- I have a friend going through treatments at Coooper right now. My first one was through Penn fertility and location-wise it's super convenient for us. But I heard that Cooper is ranked really high. After failing the first IVF it's hard to not question everything as I am sure you know. I have my "wtf" appt next week and I am expecting some new plans from them. I was one of those with super high E2s and somehow only 5 mature eggs- that was from 31 follicles. I'm 28. Seems like something wasn't balanced right and I'm super stressed about the issue being solved next time. Anyway, take care and I'll keep you posted if I ever have success.

About this blog

Over 8 years we have struggled through 3 IUI's, 6 rounds of IVF, several RE's, hundreds of appointments and the loss of three little angels. Now we find ourselves the proud parents of two perfect little girls and a wonderful little boy!!

Both of our girls struggle with some disabilities but that won't keep us down. Each day has it's own brand of insanity but we love it. Most days I am more monkey wrangler than mother but I do the best I can. Todays goal - getting to tomorrow.
