Anyone here gone through or know of someone who’s a fragile x carrier and has gone through a successful pregnancy via IVF with embryo selection? How much does something like that cost?

I don't know anyone personally, just have read a few stories here and there.

Here's one that you may have already found. First time natural pregnancy following baby aspirin, clomid, and prednisone treatment. Second pregnancy with IVF: https://foodsforfertility.com/about/

I went on a search in earnest on reddit in the IVF subreddit. I didn't read more than the top couple of posts, but might be worth looking into: https://www.reddit.com/r/IVF/search...sr=on&include_over_18=on&sort=relevance&t=all

My friend’s wife is a fragile x carrier so there’s a 50% chance of having a child with intellectual disability if they were to conceive naturally, one option is to test and selectively fertilize a healthy embryo, but given the whole roe v wade thing he’s worried it might balloon into the IVF world

Not fragile X or anything but have gone through IVF. $40k-$60k seems to be the range.

So our 4 year old was sleep walking last night and thankfully our oldest woke up and caught him opening the front door talking about winning a game? So he slept in our bed because I was freaked our he was going to do it again. :hs:




And on a good note our oldest got his report card with all As and a few Bs .. he also got a really nice compliment from his teacher.

Pretty surprised they still give letter grades in BC. Growing up they replaced them with numbers 1-4. They probably don't give grades at all anymore in ON to be more "progressive"

We're putting our guy down to a goddamn warzone

I fucking hate people
Just remember that noise is fine, babies can sleep through almost anything. It’s more of an annoyance to you than them

We used to make extra noise when our dude napped so he wouldn’t need it to be super quiet to sleep
