From Assisted Conception to...Babies!!!


Hello All,

I created this thread for those of us who went through multiple injections, blood, sweat, and tears to meet our rainbow babies. Others are of course welcome too . Let's share our long awaited pregnancies together!

A little about me, I went through IVF w/ ICSI. I was lucky to be successful at the first attempt even though my doctor only gave me 30% of success rate. At early scan (6 weeks 2 days), we saw that only 1 embryo implanted out of 2 and saw a heartbeat. However, baby was measuring a few days smaller. A couple of weeks later, we saw two babies with two heartbeat and they are measuring spot on. So here I am waiting for my identical twins.

Feel free to share a little something about yourself .

Due Date Tracker (I'll try to update as much as I can):


ILT (me! ) - for now 10/05/2015 but could be some time late September if the babies decide to come out earlier.
Faith77: 10/22/2015
BethK: 10/23/2015.
Kaye: 10/23/2015.
Star25: 11/03/2015.
3chords: 11/05/2015.
Rosina: 11/15/2015.
CMO: 11/20/2015.

Hey ILT, great idea starting another thread. I hope I'm not jinxing myself by coming over here!

A wee bit about myself.....my DH had a vasectomy reversal back in 2011 and after 3 years of TTC we accepted Icsi was our only option. We had our 1st round of treatment in jan/ feb and we were absolutely over the moon when we got our precious BFP last Friday. Still very early days and I'm very conscious of saying I'm the 'big P!!' as I so don't want to jinx us but we're both very excited and looking forward to our scan on 3rd April!!

Looking forward to sharing this journey with you all xx

U know what ILT you're so right! Why am I worrying?? Right now I'm pregnant and I need to believe it and enjoy every second of it. Totally true what you say and I always believe that what's for you won't go by you. I need to relax, chill and if anything does go wrong then we try again!

Thanks for the invite star. Great group ilovetomatoes and hi again 😆

After ttc for 5.5 years, I had to lose 5 stone to get help. We had our first round of icsi which started in January. After retrieving 8 eggs we were so upset to only be left with 1 embryo for a day 2 transfer.
We are still in shock that it worked! We had an early u/s 6wk1day and saw baby sac, yolk fetal pole and the heart was pulsating.
We have paid for a private reassurance scan this Saturday as I can't wait till 12 weeks.

Can't wait to go through this journey with you all xx

Thanks for setting up this thread ILT...

Dh had a vasectomy reversal in 2010 which didn't work due to scarring. We did our 1st ICSI cycle in Jan 2013 which resulted in a chemical pregnancy and no frosties and a 2nd fresh cycle in the June was bfn, again no frosties. Oct 2014 was our 3rd fresh ICSI which became a freeze all with 3 frosties due to OHSS. 1st single frozen transfer this month gave us a surprise bfp with a beta of 342 on 9dp5dt. Scan on 7th April (@ 7 weeks 5 days)

Over the moon, but the worrying hasn't stopped and still expecting this to be taken away from us but trying to stop worrying about what I can't control! Will be lovely to continue to support each other as you ladies have been lifelines through this x

Hi Star !! So happy to see you hear. I am expecting a few more of us to show up soon!

Cmo, it's hard though but we just need to keep reminding each other to relax.

I've heard women have miscarriages at 20 weeks or more. So, passing the first trimester is not a guarantee. I think I will feel better when I have my babies in my arms.

So, I am not sure if you ladies have discussed genders with your DHs. DH and I talked this past weekend. I, personally, want a little girl but will be happy with boys of course. I have a strong suspicion that I am carrying two boys. So, I talked to my DH that I might want to try again if we are currently having boys. He said...honey, a while back my coworker told me this. Having a boy means that you only have to worry about 1 penis. Having a girl means to have to worry about all of the penises out there! LOL!! I still want a little girl though . We'll see. We might end up with 2 girls!!

Looks like everyone was posting at the same time .

Kaye!! I was just about to go to your thread and send you the link . Good to see you here and can't wait to see your U/S!

Cmo, I think once you keep talking about pregnancy and buying little items, then it starts to sink in a bit. It didn't even sink in for me after we saw the heartbeats. Maybe when I start waddling!! ahahhaha.

Bump!! Hi
