Congratulations everyone!! I am still waiting... I still have 11 days to the due date. I am very excited about his arrival but nervous to undergo labor. 

 

I hope everyone is enjoying motherhood and have a routine all set up by now. 


TTC for two years. DH had vasectomy reversal after close to 15 years. Sperm had antibodies especially on tail making it difficult for them to reach egg. RE suggested ART. 

 

2/2020: First consultation with RE. Decision made to do IVF  (Age=37)

3/2020: U/S to check state of uterus revealed presence of fibroids, one in particular protruding toward the uterine cavity. Made decision to undergo surgery to remove fibroids 

3/2020: Surgery to remove fibroids 

3-4/2020: Recovery from surgery and COVID hit leading to cancellation of all non-essential procedures 

5/2020: Started IVF #1. 

6/2020: Retrieved 11 eggs; 9 fertilized; 4 made it to blast (2 day 5s and 2 day 6s). Protocol involved BCP before starting stims

6/2020: Fresh transfer of two blasts (3AA and 3BB); positive HPT at 5dp5dt; beta hcg at 9dp5dt=71 th_abfp.gif ; second beta at 14dp5dt=1 th_abfn.gif (Chemical)cry.gif

 

Plan to transfer the other two blasts in 8/2020

8/2020: FET cancelled IVF lab had ventilation problems leading to shut down 

 

8/2020: IUI=th_abfn.gif

 

10/2020: FET #1 unmedicated; transfered 2 day 6 blasts=th_abfn.gif  

 

11/2020 IVF #2: Retrieved 7 eggs; all fertilized but only 4 made it to 5 day blasts. Protocol didn't have BCP before stimming

12/2020: Fresh transfer of the two blasts; positive HPT starting at 5dp5dt; 1st beta at 13dp5d=1549 th_abfp.gif ; 2nd beta at 20dp5dt=21,000; beta at 26dp5dt=51,000. Excited thinking its twins sad.png

A final update as I bid this blog adieu. My baby boy arrived two weeks ago. He was 40 weeks and I had to be induced. Labor was prolonged but in the end I gave birth in less than half an hour of pushing. He is healthy and I am in love. I have adjusted to little sleep and the usual everyday routine and I am loving every minute of it even though I am exhausted. The IVF journey was totally worth it. I look at people that had babies without any struggles and while I envy them, I appreciate my journey so much because I treasure my little boy even more knowing the struggles we went through to get him. I hope everyone is doing well and that your babies are thriving. It has been a pleasure following everyone's journey through the ups and downs.

Forever grateful, from somewhere in the USA.
