Name: Dina
Age: 33
How long TTC: almost 2 years
Diagnosis or any known issues: unexplained
Treatments you tried before IVF: clomid, letrozole, letrozole and IUIs
How many IVF did you do before success: one
Are you using donor eggs or sperm: no
Protocol (meds taken): lupron and menopur
How many follicles at ER: about 24
How many eggs retrieved: 24 but only 16 were mature
How many eggs fertilized: 12
How many days between ER and ET: 5 days
How many and quality/rating of embryos/blasts transferred: one blastie (good quality but not exactly sure of the rating)

Anything else you would have wanted to know before you started this process: that it is a difficult process but worth it in the end; that I should have taken a little more time off of work after my ER (at least 3 full days off); that acupuncture was not necessary and that I would still get my BFP without it; that IUIs seem like a waste of time in hindsight

Lots of luck to everyone

Bumping this thread!!

Hoping we can get some more replies. My request to make it a sticky wasn't granted, so have to continue bumping it manually from time to time

Feel free to advertise it in my Nov IVF thread. I'm sure some of them would head over if they haven't yet!

Hi isi,

think this is a great thread, gives us all hope and things to do that may help us in our next cycle. Was surprised at how many days bed rest people have had. When you say bed rest, is that complete bed rest. I tried to take it easy for a few days but still pottered around and popped out for things etc (well christmas was coming up so had things to do. Could this have helped it fail? Any thoughts?

xx

Hi angiemon,

I have no idea if the bed rest helped. My first ivf I came home and took it easy but generally didn't change too much - I still washed dishes and did little things around the house. For this second cycle I figured that if I tried bedrest (only get up to go the washroom and get something to eat) then at least I would know that I tried something different.

Best wishes on your upcoming FET. xo

Hi Angie, yes my bedrest was literally laying on the couch or in bed. I slept a lot, as much as I physically could. Since the egg collection drained me of a lot of energy, it was easy to sleep 2 weeks away. However, I did go out a couple of times to pass some documents to people but no walking much at all. This, I did for my 3rd cycle and got mu BFP.

My bed rest was more "modified bed rest"... I didn't lay around 100% of the time... but I did do as little as possible. I really have kept sort of doing as little as possible. We're terrified of screwing something up! LOL
