This forum is a donation only site to help people in the infertility community. I like to think of this as a virtual Goodwill, except the cost of all items is $0! (Man, that would be my sort of Goodwill!) Fertility treatments are so expensive, so if you have any items that you'd like to donate to bless someone else who really needs it, please create a topic and share! You can offer up items that you no longer need, such as pregnancy gear, baby items, IVF candy, or anything else you can think of! If you are on the receiving end of a donation, please assume you will be covering shipping (unless you are local). Rules: 1.) Be kind to others. Rudeness won't be tolerated. 2.) If you see an item you'd like, claim it! These items are first come first serve. No holds (unless otherwise specified by the person donating). 3.) Medication Donations - Please read the following and check your state law regarding the donation of left over medication. According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, as of 2012, at least 38 states and Guam had passed drug donation laws. States such as, Colorado, Florida, Kentucky, Michigan, Nebraska, and Wisconsin, have created programs specifically for collecting and redistributing cancer-related prescription drugs to eligible patients. Not all of these laws or programs are currently operational, and every state has their own, often strict, rules on who can donate and what types of prescription medications may be donated. However, here are some general donation guidelines: In many states, only a health facility or pharmacy is allowed to donate drugs. There are some states that allow patients to donate. Usually the packaging must be unopened and sealed, or the drugs must be packaged in individual doses (usually in sealed blister packs). Expired drugs and controlled substances are never accepted. In general, you cannot receive payment for donated drugs. If you have additional questions about disposing of unused or expired medications, talk with your pharmacist or doctor to see what options are available. You can also call the FDA at 888-INFO-FDA (888-463-6332). The ultimate aim of this site is to make meaningful connections and contribute in a positive way to the community.

Any F.R.I.E.N.D.S. fans out there? My husband and I watch that show on the daily and yet every episode seems as funny the 500th time as it did the first time. As some of you may know, my husband and I are on a much needed IVF break while we get some additional tests done to see if we can crack the code of our unexplained infertility. There has to be an explanation, so what is it?? My question to you, is what are your favorite, cost-effective, things to do as a couple? Daniel and I have conflicting work schedules and unfortunately only have our evenings together. Because we're both homebodies, we like to order in and watch TV (I know, we're boring), but in this new year, I really want to be more active and get out. I'd love to take a vacation (Lord knows I need one!) but that's on hold for now until we know what the next few months will look like. So please tell me your favorite dates!!

Love is love. Wouldn't any child benefit from the love of two people who have so much love to give?? (new drinking game... take a drink every time I said "love") I hope you all can find your babies out there in this big world and provide a life for them that any little child could only dream of. My husband and I always say that parents who struggled to conceive love their children way more than those who found it so easy. Maybe that's not true, but maybe it is!!

I can understand how heartbreaking it must be to long for another child and have some people telling you to be thankful that you already have one and others asking when you're going to give your child a sibling.
