Hey everyone! After taking 2.5 years off from IVF, I'm excited to get to join a thread like this again! Here's to 2017 being ALL of our years to get a sibling for our youngins.

IVF Cycle #1
February 10th, 2014 - began Puregon 75 & Repronex 75

June 2nd - ER - 16 eggs retrieved. That's DOUBLE than last time. I hope this is a good sign!

June 4th - transferred two four cell embryos! Left the last remaining embryo to see if it would become freezable
June 7th - got the call that our last embryo started to degress so we have nothing to freeze. Getting so impatient to POAS!

Oct. 12th - Fertility report - they were able to fertilize all 13 of the eggs after requesting my hubby bring two samples to the clinic on the 11th. Both samples were poor quality but they found 13 sperm to use. Of the 13 fertilized eggs, only 3 lasted through the night. Doc suggested we do a 2 day transfer TOMORROW.
Oct. 13th - transferred 2 two-cell embryos.. Beta scheduled for Oct. 28!
Oct. 26th - POAS at home and received THREE BFP pregnancy tests!

Nov. 1st - 3rd beta. Still bleeding. Quite heavily now with clots. Beta is now 369.
Nov. 3rd - 4th beta. HCG # still rising. Still bleeding. No clots now
Nov. 5th - beta dropped by 500 pts. Nurses told me to stop taking my meds. It's over. Another glaring failure.
IUI Cycle #1
October 2015 - hubby begins taking supplements to help his 0 sperm count
Feb. 18, 2016 - RE is THOROUGHLY impressed with hubby's sperm count. 0 to 36 million per ml. Suggests we try conceiving at home, though we've been trying actively since August. Suggests we try an IUI instead of ICSI as well as get an HSG done just to make sure there's not another reason why I keep miscarrying.
Feb. 19 - begin Clomid 2x/day
Feb. 26 - have HSG done - tubes are clear!
Feb. 29 - have follicular ultrasound. One mature follie.
Mar. 1 - HCG shot
Mar. 3 - IUI....RE warns beforehand that the sperm is shitty quality again and they had to thaw some of the frozen straws we had stored. RE says not to get our hopes up.
Mar. 17 - AF rears her ugly head. Another BFN.
IUI Cycle #2
May 2016 - Fail
IVF Cycle #4
April 5, 2017 - begin Menopur 75 & Gonal F 150 injections
April 10 - Menopur 75, Gonal F 150 to continue. RE added Centrotide to the mix after follicular ultrasound.
