My Story

Jan 13, 2008 - 3 comments

I am 36 years young and my DH is 31.  We have been ttc for a year and a half.  I have 2 small fibroids but according to my RE they are not in the way.  

We started with IUI (2 failed) and I felt frustrated.  So we decided to step it up to IVF with ICSI.  We had the transfer July 29th (2 embryos; 1 of average quality and 1 below avg. and DH's sperm WBC (white blood cell) was a bit high).  I stayed on bedrest for 3 days. I had a hard time staying positive.  I had been so good with healthy diet despite my urges to want chocolate, coffee and wine!  No luck.  August 14th we got the Beta which was obviously a BFN.  

I was over the whole TTC thing and wanted to take a break from TTC.  We took a break until now.  We are going to try again using assisted hatching.  My DH is also going to be tested for DNA fragmentation.  If that looks good and his wbc count is down we have a better chance.  I will start BCP first week of Feb. and hope for my retrieval to be on or around March 13th with a transfer 3/ 18.

I hope this is our year, Ladies!

It breaks my heart all the tests and treatments you and your dh have to go through.  Just wanted to wish you the best of luck and I hope you get that BFP in March!

Ditto to what Helen72 said.  I hope this IVF cycle is the one that sticks for you.  Statistically, it does take at least 3 IUI, and/or IVF's for success so you are still very early in the process.  It's going to happen for you just keep at it!
