So very happy to posting here, hopefully my post will give others hope just as others posts on here have done for me. :flower:
How long TTC: A little over 2 years
Diagnosis or any known issues: MFI
Treatments you tried before IVF: 3 IUI’s
How many IVF did you do before success: Just One!
Are you using donor eggs or sperm: No
Protocol (meds taken): Follistim, Menopur, Lupron, PIO,
How many follicles at ER: ?
How many eggs retrieved: 20, 11 mature
How many eggs fertilized: 8 fertilized with ICSI
How many days between ER and ET: 3
How many and quality/rating of embryos/blasts transferred: 2 8 cell grades 1.5 and 2 - used Assisted Hatching
Symptoms or issues during 2WW: My only clear symptom was at 6dp3dt I had severe period cramps for 20 min to where I was doubled over in pain.
What day you got your BFP: 14dpo - Beta test
HPT before blood test: Nope not one!
Number of first beta: 50
Number of 2nd beta: 102
Number of third beta: 391
Number of babies: 2!!!
Anything else you would have wanted to know before you started this process: I didn’t really experience any real pregnancy symptoms until days after my positive beta. Don’t expect to feel much during your 2ww besides the side effects from the progesterone or other meds. Also, I am proof that beta numbers don’t necessarily mean anything in terms of how many babies are in there. You just never know until the u/s. The final days of my 2ww were the worst, especially because I started spotting very lightly like I do every month the day/s before my period. I thought for sure it was over, but it wasn’t! IT IS POSSIBLE, don’t give up hope! Best of luck and :bsv: to us all!!!
