I posted this in another thread, but did not get any responses. I’m meeting with RE on Monday and was hoping to have all my thoughts collected.
I just found out today I had a chemical pregnancy. We are going to do IVF in January and not sure what we should do differently.
I don’t know if we should change RE. I did get pregnant with 2nd IVF in 2009 with the current RE and have a wonderful son. For that IVF my RE told my husband that my eggs were not of best quality and I was shocked when we became pregnant.
With the last two IVF and recent FET all the embryos were aCGH genetic tested prior to transfer. I was very hesitant with genetic testing as it can possibly decrease pregnancy rates. However, my RE was insistent because his own wife who had miscarriages used it and now she is pregnant. In addition, the lab does a large volume of genetic testing and are better skilled than most labs out there, so they report.
I’m also surprised to have a chemical pregnancy with normal genetic tested embryos.
Now my RE is recommending not using genetic testing as this maybe the reason for my not getting pregnant. My only hesitation is that with the genetic testing we identified 40-50% abnormal embryos. I’m not sure what to do.
Anyone have any thoughts about the above and what I can do differently. Should I change RE, I did get pregnant with him in 2009.
Also, I have been doing acupuncture 2x/weekly since the beginning of September 2011, which I didn’t do with my first pregnancy.
Thanks for your thoughts.
