Thought i would start a thread for those of us planning on starting IVF/ICSI in Jan/Feb/March 2013 as it will soon be here.
A bit about me... i am 31, dh is 32. We have had 2 failed cycles of IVF in the past year and are starting x3 with ICSI in the new year due to me having no tubes following 2 ectopics in 2010 and i also have very low AMH levels (2.5). DH has no fertility issues but we will be having ICSI due to such poor fertilization results with previous two cycles as we only ever got 1 embryo from each cycle and each one failed to implant
Praying we are going to be 3rd time lucky. Who else is gearing up for the patter of tiny feet in the new year?
This thread is gonna be full of PMA and also BFPS!
If you all tell me a little about yourselves il add our names to the 2nd page and we can all get prepared together xxx
Wanabe- No sadly we were denied additional funding but we are going to get our MP to fight our case and if not my wonderful dad is going to give us majority of the money from his life savings to have another cycle after christmas so either way we are good to go but really hope we win appeal as my dad is not a rich man and has took yrs to save what he has xxx
No egg share is definitely not a option seeing as my AMH is 2.5 and egg quality is so low we only got 2 eggs 1st cycle and 6 2nd and only 1 embie from each cycle
If our next cycle fails we may need to seriously think about using donor eggs for next cycle but praying it doesnt come to that. If it does i have 3 close friends who have all offered their eggs to us though which is a comfort that i have people that think so much of us to do that. Your starting your ICSI cycle soon arent you? lots of luck xxx
Oh my AMH is only 2.6 I have no idea how I will respond to the drugs, but the reason it's low is BC I had surgery on the same ovary twice in 11 months so some ovary tissue was lost. Yes we start icsi a week today :/ I'm very nervous now.
It's great that you have friends that are willing to donate eggs for you I really hope this happens for you I read something last night that mixed race couples have a better chance at success I am white and OH is black Bajan (barbados), did you have icsi last time or regular ivf?
