Has anyone read the Celine Dion article that is in the Feb 22 People magazine? I admire her for being so open about her IVF attempts...and in the public eye! I don't think that I could do it!

Not related to IVF, I find it a little creepy that her 9 year old son sleeps in their bed.

I thought the same thing about her son. I mean he's 9!

I also think it's great that she was so open about it and I guess it goes to show that even people who can afford multiple rounds of IVF are sometimes unsuccessful. That it's really not a cure all for infertility that some people think. I don't know how many times I have heard of people saying "why don't you just do IVF" It's not that simple and it's not a guarantee.

After 2 losses, 2 rounds of fertility testing, 2 laproscopies and a D&C,
7 cycles of Clomid, an HSG and a cycle of Injections we finally received our BFP on August 19th!

I have always loved that she has been so open about her struggles. I think it definitely proves to people that this can happen to anyone, and having all the money in the world like she does doesn't make you immune to the heartbreak of infertility. I wish more celebs would talk about it, and just more people in general. It shouldn't be so embarassing or shameful to have problems...and maybe more awareness would bring new research that would help all of us!
