Winter IVF Members*
After long and painful journeys, all of our members are at various stages of IVF and IF. Some people are in waiting, some are in the middle of a cycle, some have finally gotten their BFP and are just waiting around here until they feel comfortable enough to move to the grads thread, some are trying to figure out their next steps, and some of us are trying to figure out how to move past IF when treatments have failed. Some people come and stay for a few weeks, and others have been here for years. All are welcome here.

* Free baby refers to somebody who conceived naturally after moving toward IVF, or doing IVF (sometimes many times). Most "free babies" are not exactly "free" - they came after years of infertility struggles and treatments, and nine months of pregnancy while worrying about losses.
