Hi There,

I am 38 Years old and new to this board. My husband is 39.
We started trying for children shortly after we were married 7 years ago.
It was not in the cards naturally and so after laproscopic surgery we confirmed we were 'unexplained'

At 34 we sought help and started our infertility journey.
After 6 months of clomed, 5 cycles of IUI we moved on to IVF.
Voila, First attempt we were pregnant. 9 months later I gave birth to my blessed Oliver.

Since then we have undergone:
1 Frozen Embryo Transfer - 2 embies, failed
1 Fresh Cycle - Drugs diagnosed incorrectly - they gave me 2 doses of ovidrel, resulting in no eggs viable for transfer.

This week we attempted another fresh cycle.
At 7AM I was scheduled for retrieval, and they couldn't get the eggs out.
Later that afternoon they 'tried' again and managed to get 5 out.
Of the 5, only 2 fertilized and only 1 made it to transfer.

Today I had one Grade 2a, 9 cell embryo transfered.
Has anyone gotten pregnant from 1 emby that was less than perfect?

Looking for hope!

Gizzie,

Welcome to IVF.ca and congrats on your Oliver :)

I'm sorry you have been through such a long journey.

I have heard of lots of women getting a BFP and then go on to have a baby with supposed less than perfect embryos. Don't give up hope!

I hope you find what you are looking for here. BTW - There are Cycle Buddy groups, where women who are cycling and at the same stage can chat and there is a Clinic Chat page for One, where you can chat with other patients at One Fertility. Jump in where ever and I am sure you will be made to feel welcome.
