Good point! I think you should start coining new terms for this process!!


Thanks! I don't know why either. My doctor says more thank likely I wasn't born with normal amount to begin with. I am seeing Dr. Sherman Silber in St. Louis. He is great. I don't think they offer Minimal IVF at most places. They didn't in Little Rock, where I was previously going.

Don't Count Your Eggs

So weird, right? Glad I'm not the only one to think so. It's like a Brangelina term. I hope the word dies a quick death. ;)


You're so right! I absolutely agree. I wonder if Glamour just made up this term and it will likely die soon (hopefully) or if this is terminology that's spreading around the IF world. I suppose each family can decide what they want this process to look like and what words they want to use to describe it, but like I said, I agree with you. I don't like it either.

Don't Count Your Eggs

Wow Kandie! Amazing to have a twin willing to donate to you. It's so hard to have to go through so much to find answers. What I keep wondering is why I have Diminished Ovarian Reserve at my age, but I haven't had much luck getting answers. I guess right now the focus has to be not why but how. How will we make our family. Good luck with the mini-IVF. I'm curious to know how that works and have my fingers and toes crossed for you!


I read the same article as I was waiting in the exam room of my doctor's office after my 4th unsuccessful IUI! I picked up Glamour over the parenting magazines and was shocked to see that article. Ha, I laughed because the month before my (twin) sister had made a trip with me to the doctor's office and told me she would give me her eggs! That was all before I found out that I had poor ovarian reserve. The only way I found out was by switching doctors. My previous RE kept saying unexplained. Anyway we are scheduled for back to back retrievals. We are doing mini-IVF instead of traditional. Our first retrieval is middle of June. I won't know until then the quality of my eggs. I am praying I have good eggs! I have been following your blog for about a month now. Glad you are blessed with an amazing sister! I will be praying for you!
