Success after IF

Can I get a show of hands...

Hi there! I typically post over on the IF board but I lurk over here when I need encouragement. I'm currently in need of a pick-me up! Can I get a show of hands of how many of you conceived during your first IVF cycle? We are getting ready to start next month and I'm just really emotional about it and nervous that it won't work.

TIA!

Me:31 DH:34
Married: 4/8/12
DX: PCOS/MFI
IVF Cycle #1 planned for March/April
**PAIF/SAIF Welcome**

Re: Can I get a show of hands...

  • I did!  We did 2 clomid cycles and 2 IUIs first that were all BFNs.   For TTC #2 our 2nd FET worked but I have issues with crappy lining so I think that is why the first one failed.

    It's an emotional roller coaster, and you have every right to be nervous. Just hang on tight and take it a day at a time.
