IVF 2ww...

Happy New Year Everyone!  I’ve been away from the forum for a little bit after our m/c, but I’m back in the saddle and have just completed our 5th IVF cycle.  I was wondering if anyone else was in the middle of their 2ww?  I just had 2 embryo’s transferred back on Jan. 2nd.  My blood test is scheduled for Jan. 13th….6 more LONG days!  This is my 5th cycle with IVF.  The first 3 failed.  Our 4th cycle resulted in our very first pregnancy, but m/c at 5.5 weeks.  My third and Fourth cycles have resulted in great retrieval #’s (13 & 14 eggs), as well as fertilization #’s (11 both times) and they were able to transfer 5 embryo’s each time….but this 5th cycle didn’t go as well as the last two.  They only retrieved 7 eggs, only 3 fertilized and there were only 2 to transfer back (7 cell and a 5 cell).  Not overly encouraging, but I am trying to remain hopeful and pray that this is finally our cycle.  I would love some company during the next several days.

Hey, welcome back!! I have been on a long break too. The DR recommended we go to IVF instead of a 2nd IUI b/c of my age, and we got approved for the January cycle. I go tomorrow for my nurse consult and calendar of when to start meds-very overwhelming!!

I am here for you, all you need is one to implant! The 13th is only a week away.

How are you feeling?

So glad you are back

Thanks and congratulations on your approval for your January IVF cycle.  It really is a lot of information (and a lot of work) and can certainly be overwhelming, but it's for all the right reasons.

I'm feeling fine right now...mild cramps on and off, so I'm not sure what to think...hoping it's not AF kicking in and I have sore breasts (which may be from the progestron).  I'm hoping and praying that one of those little guys is planning on hanging around!  I just wish I/we didn't have to wait so long to find out.  The waiting is the worst part.

Good luck at your appt tomorrow and keep me posted.  I kinda feel like a pro at IVF (unfortunately), so I'd be happy to answer any questions you may have along the way.

Just wanted to wish you luck in 2ww!!  We transferred two 5-cell embryos and one 6 cell; one of them made it.  So, you definitely have a chance!!

Thanks everyone, it's good to be back and I hope that 2009 is a BFP year for all of us!

Helen72:  Thanks for telling me about your cell #'s on the day of your transfer....that really did make me feel better and gives me even more hope.  It was the first thing I told my DH about when I got home last night.

I hope to make it to the 13th without AF showing up....and pray to get the call that we have a BFP!!!
