  • So the last two days have been a horrible roller coaster.  ER was Friday where we got 19 eggs (mentioned above).  We decided not to do ICSI as DH's sperm has always looked average or better even though my RE always suggests it.  The RE called yesterday morning (24 hours affter retrieval) and ZERO eggs had fertilized.  It was devastating news. They offered to do rescue ICSI and this morning we got word that 2 eggs had fertilized and we will see if they develop far enough to be frozen.  We'll know more on Tuesday but they won't be able to transfer this week (that part I'm ok with).

    I'm so deflated and I know that with 2 there is still a possibility of a baby but I just never would have imagined that 19 eggs would only yield 2 embryos (and that only after the rescue ICSI).  The doc said there weren't even any sperm attached to the zona pelicuda.  I really don't know what to think.  DH said yesterday that he hates what this is doing to me both emotionally and physically and he's not sure if he would be willing to do another round of IVF.  I just don't know what to think or feel.  I know all hope is not yet gone but it hurts right now and I know you ladies can understand that way better than most.  It is not lost on me how much of a miracle it is that our one daughter was born on our second clomid/IUI cycle.  I just pray that there is another miracle baby for us as well.

    Dx: DOR, Endo, APA+ (really high beta 2 glycoprotein antibody and high everything else tested), heterozygous MTHFR mutation, positive for lupus anticoagulant, high FSH, low AMH and both tubes blocked (per HSG on 3/8/11)

    IVF #1 - long lupron (with HGH, intralipids, lovenox and BA); 4 retrieved, 3 fertilized; ET 2 blasts and 1 frozen = BFN

    IVF #2 - a version of antagonist with EPP (with HGH, intralipids, lovenox and BA); 6 retrieved, 4 mature, 3 fertilized, 2 blasts and 1 frozen blast transferred on day 5 = BFN.

    IVF #3 April was postponed to May, May was canceled. June/July was canceled. Had a cyst aspiration and then began IVF #3 in August. ER on 8/22; ET on 8/24 with AH. +HPT on 9/5. Beta #1 (11dpo) = 3; Beta #2 (15dpo) = 29; Beta #3 (17dpo) = 60; Beta #4 (19 dpo) = 118. Heartbeat at 6 weeks 6 days =132.  Lil is here!

    TTC#2:  Trigger + TI = BFN; Clomid + Trigger + IUI = BFN.

    IVF #4:  BCP + MDLF + Lovenox = 7R, 1F = Transferred 1 6-cell embryo on day 3 = BFN

    IVF #5:  MDLF + Lovenox = 4R, 1F = Transferred 1 10-cell compacting embryo on day 3 = BFN

    IVF #6:  (New RE):  Long Antagonist November 2014 (transferred two 8 cell grade 1 embryos and froze one blast) = BFN

    FET#1:  BFN

  • Thanks for the support, ladies.  I am just not responding how they would like to the meds.  I think that something didn't work right when they converted the type of FET protocol.  They think the fluid was blood from my uterus starting to deteriorate or something.

  • @sweetkendall‌ I am so sorry. I can only imagine the shock of all that. Did they say how many eggs were actually mature? Fwiw, we started with 14R, only 8M, and of those only 3 fertilized with ICSI. We ended up with 3 day 5 blasts. Sending tons of positive thoughts towards those 2 embryos. Is a fresh transfer for sure off the table? (Sorry, I'm mobile if that's in your sig)

  • Jen071407 Yes, a fresh transfer is off the table as the embryos and my uterine lining are out of sync now because of the lag in fertilization.  That and I stopped my medrol and progesterone (per doctor's oders) Saturday after we got the news that none had fertilized.

    Thanks for all the condolences.  It helps to know that I'm not alone in this struggle.

    After talking to a doctor friend of mine tonight, she thinks it is possible that a medication that my husband is on could be the cause of the sperm not doing it's job.  There is little known about this medication and fertility so we knew there was a chance it could be problematic but had hoped for the best.  I'm feeling a little better about it all at this very moment after a good cry earlier.  The painful ovaries and general discomfort from the ER doesn't help though.  I think I'm off to bed and hopefully we'll have good news on Tuesday.

  • I'm late posting. I'm on CD1. I'm still on progesterone and going to my RE for new blood work in March because my blood hemalized (spelling ?) at the lab before they ran tests and they just let my RE know. DH is still doing shots and supplements. He goes for blood work in March too. Our foster/adoption application has been sent to the state for review and approval so hopefully we will be licensed very soon!

    I love living in the country but I would be totally fine with moving back to the beach!
