Boy oh boy it's been a long process and I'm so over it dragging out.
We knew in April this year we'd have to do IVF and it's just been so long - more tests to check husband's sperm/ possible polyp and Hysterscopy. Then two months of trying. We did an egg pick up in August and got 4 eggs - 3 came back genetically fine. We decided to go again as I'm just turned 36 so we wanted a few 'in the bank'. For some reason all the eggs didn't release but hey we got 3. Then we were close on another round and they cancelled because there wasn't enough eggs. Then this time it went ahead (yeah!!) there were 11 good follicles but we got 6 eggs. 5 fertilised and we're waiting till the dreaded day 5 update. Next month she said there could still be a polyp there so we'll investigate again. And then January we will put one in. Exhausting just writing it all.
To top it off I had a really shit week. I was right in the middle of the round and meet up with my little sister on MY BIRTHDAY and she tells me she's pregnant!! Spent the whole lunch going on about it - it happened so easily blah blah here's the scan/ here's the video of our parents reaction. She is only 7 weeks! I was trying to hold back the tears all lunch- I went into the bathroom and burst into tears. She doesn't know we're doing IVF but she knows we've been trying. I did send her an email saying how upset I was because there wasn't one consideration saying 'this must be hard for you to hear'. She wrote back claiming she didn't know we were trying. She annoys me so much sometimes. Most of the things she does I have to just 'shake off'. This is hard too though!!
What's your story? Everyone is so involved in big threads I don't want to just jump in.
Oh ok I've just seen your tag. Fingers crossed January works for us. 2010 must have been devastating for you. I bet a break has been good for u - it's such a pain having to put your life on hold. And we can both start the new year fresh and with good luck.
We are transferring our only frozie in late January/early February depending when my AF shows.
We did a natural ICSI cycle in September which resulted in BFN. I am putting it down to bad luck because we had a good quality embryo and I've been pregnant twice before so the consultant thought that we would have a 50/50 chance of getting pregnant.
Here's to January hurrying the hell up and everyone getting their sticky beans!
Hi Miranda I know exactly how you feel. We tried for three years to have our daughter. After five ivfs we finally had our daughter. Two months before I got the bfp my little sister told me she just tested and was pregnant. I just burst into tears. She and her husband was living in different states at that time and only saw each other once a month!
We were lucky that we got pregnant soon afterwards but I really don't know how I would have been if it doesn't happen for us.
Out of the 5 ivfs we only got two blastocyst one resulted in my daughter the other one is in the freezer Hehe
We tried to transfer our last embryo in Oct cycle cancel due to thick lining, nov has a hysteroscopy but no issues were found. Yesterday the doctor said due to my long ovulation no transfer this month as it will clash with xmas sigh. So Jan is it I hope really can't do another fresh cycle I just can't face any more disappointment!
Hi ladies, i was starting to think noone was going to reply to this thread.
Heres my story..
I'm 26 and i have PCOS and i had stage 3 endometriosis which i had surgery to remove it last january. My partner is 34 he had a low count but great mobility and morphology. He was retested and his numbers have improved so hes all good
We have been together for 5 years this coming February and the entire time we have been together we have never ever used protection. And we never fell pregnant.. we started actually trying about 2 years ago and nothing not even a sign of a bfp.. so last june decided to get some help and went to fs who put me on clomid, i did 50mg,150mg and 200mg which did absolutely nothing my follices didnt even grow i think 1 got to about 11mm and then nothing else and i have an abundance of follices due to PCOS.. i was deemed Clomid ressistant and my only other choice would be iui or IVF. So after clomid failed we decided to try naturally until we coukd do ivf..
Fast forward to june this year and we did our first round of ivf. I was on a lose doe of gonal f only 150iu. As i was at a low cost centre in brisbane australia.. i got 4 follices out of it and 3 eggs did a freeze all hoping all would make it to 5 day blast and none did .
We jumped straigt into anothet stim cycle and this time iwas on 250 gonal f and got 5 eggs out of 6 follices 4 that fertilised and 3 made it to blast! So excited that we had 3 possible babies!! We transferred 1 which ened in a chemical pregnancy i had nice strong tests and then beta day my digital test went from saying 1-2 pregnant to not pregnant it was the worst day ever!
So we are ona break until january which we are hoping to transfer both and i hope they both stick!
When i had finished my final round of clomid last year my 16yr old niece told me that she was pregnant.. and she was an accident as her and her bf had been "using" protection.. i was gutted its horrible. I cried alot because i wanted it so badly and tried soo hard but nothing worked and she just falls pregnant by accident.
Miss cassie, sorry to hear of all the heartbreak you have been through trying to get that BFP Good news is though, if you can take any good news from such a shitty situation is that your body is trying to get pregnant! I have faith that if you transfer both of your remaining embryos that one of them will stick.
Our situation is as follows... we already have a 5 year old daughter who we conceived very quickly and didn't think we would have any problems conceiving a second baby. When my daughter was 2 we decided to try for baby number 2 and after 8 months of negative cycles I had an inkling that something wasn't right. We went for routine tests and they came back that my husbands count, motility and morphology were all under average. I ovulate naturally every cycle and my periods are like clockwork. I was put on clomid in the hope that I would release more than 1 egg but after 4 cycles we were still getting negatives. We were then told that our only hope would be ICSI. We've had to pay for it due to already having a child so all in all so far we've paid about £7000 and still have no baby to show for it. We are 28 cycles in so far but I remain hopeful that our final embryo will be the one to stick!
