Name: Comet
Age: 38
How long TTC: 15 mos.
Diagnosis or any known issues: Unexplained, but both of us were probably "subfertile"
Treatments you tried before IVF: 7 IUIs (3 Clomid; 3 Gonal-F, I think; and one unmedicated)
How many IVF did you do before success: 2nd IVF was the successful one
Did you use donor eggs or sperm: No
How many follicles at ER: 21
How many eggs retrieved: 16
How many eggs fertilized: 14 via ICSI (only 8 left by Day 3, and of those, 3 were arresting)
How many days between ER and ET: 3
How many and quality/rating of embryos/blasts transferred: We had 5 Day 3 Embryos left: 8A, 8B, 7B, 6A, and 5B. We threw them all in, against clinic's recommendation. They had only done assisted hatching on the best 3.
How many days bed rest: 0, but I did do acupuncture right after the transfer
What day you got your BFP: 11dp3dt (14 dpo)
HPT before blood test: Yes
Number of first beta: 391
Number of babies: 1

Anything else you would have wanted to know before you started this process: The reason why we threw in 5 embryos was that on IVF #1, we had 3 perfect-looking embryos, all 8-celled, and I only had a chemical PG from that cycle. So we decided to be aggressive the second time around. When I look back on it, I'm surprised the clinic let us transfer 5 (even though they didn't want to). But it all turned out exactly how we wanted: one healthy son, born on our DD's third birthday.
