Surprise BFP before IVF!


Hello, ladies! I'm so excited to be able to post something here after years in the LTTC boards.

Here's a little backstory:

DH and I have been TTC for three years, after I was diagnosed with and treated for cervical cancer. Part of my cervix was removed, and I was told it would make it harder to conceive.

Additionally, I have PCOS (have had since puberty), which makes my hormones so out of whack, my doctor says I make less estrogen than a post-menopausal woman.

After 2.5 years TTC, with 2 chemical pregnancies and one early miscarriage, we were referred to a fertility clinic. We spent almost a year with the clinic. After letrozole and 3 failed IUI cycles, my doctor said he didn't think mixed cycles or injection-only cycles would work, and recommended we jump straight to IVF.

I was put on BC in July to 'calm' my ovaries, and was supposed to start the egg retrieval protocol this month, when... surprise! BFP!

I'm both excited and terrified. My first appt is Tuesday the 15th. I estimate I'm 4w2d or so, but my OB is considering me 8w2d because my last AF was so long ago...

Please keep your fingers crossed for me! This little bean needs all the positivity and sticky vibes it can get!
