singlemamatobe- Amazing news, and what a strong Beta!! 

 

karmapawz - Good stuff on the transfer. Will you test before your beta? 

 

AFM, I took a FRER test on Sunday morning which was 9 days post 3-day transfer. It was negative. I am out again. I mean, I still don't have my period but I've been to this rodeo before! I talked to my RE about a plan for this cycle, as I have two frozen, untested embryos. I will go ahead with an FET cycle as soon as my period comes. I have to decide whether to transfer both, or just one. 


Me: 38 39 DH: 41 43 TTC Since 2014
Miscarriage in April 2016 (natural pregnancy) 

 

Many IUIs 2017  - One BFP! - Chemical Pregnancy sad.png

IVF #1 August 2017 - antagonost protocol - 11 eggs retrieved, 6 fertilised w/ICSI. 2 embryos to transfer day 5 - BFN - nothing to freeze

IVF #2 - November 2017 - flare protocol - 7 eggs retrieved, 4 fertilised w/ICSI. 2 morulas (not quite blasts) to transfer day 5 - BFN - nothing to freeze

IVF #3 - April 2018 - DHEA priming - 10 retrieved, 7 mature, 7 fertilised w/ICSI. 2 morulas to transfer day 5 - BFN - nothing to freeze. 

IVF #4 August-September 2018 - 17 eggs retrieved, 12 fertilised w/ICSI. 4 blasts (2 transferred day 5: 4AB and 2AA. 2 Day-6 frozen) BFP!! Beta #1= 39, Beta #2 = 105, Beta #3 = 210, Beta #4 = 20. Early Miscarriage. cry.gif

IVF #5 January 2019 - 7 eggs retrieved, 3 mature, 2 fertilised. Day 3 transfer of one 9-cell embryo: BFN.  Worst cycle ever? 

FET: March 2019 - BFN.

What...wait...what? April 2019 SURPRISE NATURAL BFP!! Early miscarriage @ 6wk. W the actual F? th_aholysheep.gif th_angrywife.gif

IVF #6 - August 2019 -BFN 

Moving on to DE IVF abroad

 

DE IVF #1 - 2 blasts transferred, chemical

DE FET #1 - 2 blasts transferred, BFP! Amazing betas  (170 - 40K) then bleeding then haemmorage at 6.5 weeks. ER and then hospital stay. Not great. Not great at all. icon_cry.gif

DE FET #2 - 1 blast transferred - BFN

 

Will this ever work? Losing hope, steam, money.

Thanks karmapawz! Yes, I transferred two. How amazing that you were able to have a transfer already! My clinic requires two cycles after an IVF (or FET) cycle before a transfer. Fingers crossed!


Singlemamatobe- how is it going? Any news?

Esterk2002 - hi! Yes, its been an exciting few weeks. I had my first ultrasound booked for Feb 28th but had a pretty big bleed on the 22nd so I went on the 23rd (EGA 6+3). They saw two sacs/fetal poles but no HR yet. I had an even bigger episode of bleeding on the 25th so I still went on the 28th. They saw only one baby, with a heartbeat. The HR was a bit low and the CRL was a bit small but the radiologist was lovely. He said there is nothing to do but be positive and wait and see. I left for Hawaii that night and am here until the 24th so we will see! No more bleeding so far. 🤞🏼🤞🏼

How is everything with you?

And...it almost seems like most people who go through ivf have some kind of bleeding at one point. Don’t worry too much about it!

Singlemama. Im in the January fet group, can I ask how small you were measuring as I am measuring small as well. Though my clinic told me 3 days is ok but Im wondering other clinics perspectives. The heartbeat was 118 at 6w4d

Thanks, Esterk2002. I appreciate the positivity....and I have had enough mai tais in my lifetime that I dont mind missing out this time. Good luck tomorrow!

Pleasebaby - I am trying to stay positive and not rehash all the numbers and problems with my ultrasound. My clinic passes us off once we have a positive beta so I have been managing this on my own (with the help of a midwife friend). I will say that that heart rate at your gestation is very reassuring and I wouldnt worry about a thing. Good luck!

Hi everyone - just an update. I got home from my trip late Sunday and arranged an ultrasound on Monday where my pregnancy was confirmed as nonviable at 10+6. I'm devastated and very anxious about the possibility of needing a D&C. Hope everyone else is doing well and that the third pregnancy is the charm for me! I have four more embryos frozen and then will move on to someone else's eggs.

I am so sorry to hear that. I hope you don’t need a d&c and you can do your next transfer asap! It’s so great that you have 4 more embryos left-i am praying that one of them is the one! All the best!
