Hello,
I'm Jane and have been with my husband for 7 years.  We have unexplained infertility and went through a cycle of IVF in September 2006.  We didn't get to embryo transfer though as there were 27 eggs collected and there was a risk of OHSS.  But - of the 27 eggs, only one fertililsed.  We were warned that it wasn't great quality but it was frozen.  We then hoped for a frozen embryo transfer but the one little embryo didn't thaw successfully.  So - lots of trouble and tears along the way.
We were advised that IVF wouldn't work for us because of the very poor fertilisation but that ICSI just might.  We went through ICSI last year and our beautiful daughter was born in January.  We are grateful every day that she's here with us and appreciate her so much. 
I've arrived at fertility friends as we have 2 frozen embryos from our ICSI treatment.  We both feel strongly that we want to use the embryos.  I'm 37 now and very aware that time is moving on so we are awaiting an appointment at our clinic to discuss using these frozen embryos.  As I type this, I'm very aware just how lucky we are to have our little girl, but I'm hoping for some support and advice as we go through the process again.
I hope all this makes sense!
Hoping to get to know you all.
Jane

Thanks for your lovely welcomes, babyblues, Louj and Megan.  Louj - thanks for all the links to the other boards, I'll have a look.  Babyblues - I'll let you know if I need to chat, thanks for that.  Megan - our appointment was supposed to be last week but the doctor was sick (and I thought doctors never got sick!) so we've been told that we may get seen in July.  I really hope so!  I love the idea that I sound strong - over the years I've frequently wavered between being a sobbing wreck and coping ok!
