Some of you may remember that when I hosted this board (November 2008-December 2009) I had a spreadsheet with pretty much everyone who regularly posted on the board. I kept track of all sorts of stats and posted about them once in a while, but quit updating it after I started the IVF process in October 2009.

Well, when transferring files to my new laptop, I found the spreadsheet (I thought it had been deleted)! I went through again and decided to find out how many successes we had. The results are amazing!

Of the 95 women on my spreadsheet, 68 either have babies already, or are pregnant. That's 72%! Of the 27 remaining women, I only know for sure that 7 of them have not been successful...the others disappeared in the middle of treatments and haven't updated. That means our actual success rate could be MUCH higher than 72%!

Infertility is sometimes so depressing and dark, but these numbers prove that the odds are in your favor! Hang in there ladies...those two lines might be just around the corner

(P.S. I am resurrecting the spreadsheet, so stay tuned for updates!)

Yes, Jessie and Tracey....you are part of the 72%

I know sometimes it feels like everyone is getting pregnant and you are the last one left standing, but it is really neat to look back and see all the girls who have been on here for a long time, and so many of them are either cuddling babies or rubbing bellies...it really warms my heart and makes me believe even more that girls like Brynn and Ashley and Morgan are due for success any time!

Yes, 100% is definitely the goal. I should go back and count the actual number of babies, because some of the first to graduate during my spreadsheet days are pregnant with #2 already!
