I have a beautiful DD conceived through IVF born
Jan 2015. She is 16 months now. I have DOR and my hubby has low sperm
count. We are a double whammy.
Motherhood has been intense. I work
as a nurse and I'm in full-time graduate school to become a nurse
practitioner, it's been a crazy year. We are thinking about going
through IVF again this summer when I have a nice break in school, be
pregnant last year of grad school, and hopefully pop out second baby
when done...figured it would be acceptable to take year off after
graduation for baby before starting new career. So I have a lot on my
mind regarding baby, careers, etc. I am turning 32 this month and with
DOR we don't want to wait longer.
So here is the dilemma. I am
still breastfeeding my 16 month old. We had lots of breastfeeding
struggles in the beginning and we finally have it going strong and I
love and cherish my breastfeeding relationship. It's one thing my body
has done right. I highly value our bf relationship and don't want to
wean. Have any of you breastfed through IVF? What have your REs said?
We have our first appointment with RE this upcoming Tuesday.
Here is a blog post that spells out my feelings exactly: https://babydustdiaries.wordpress.com/2010/06/10/breastfeeding-through-fertility-treatments-ivf-and-fet/
