Hi there! I was last on the bump in 2010, so it's been awhile. Here's my background:

10/2009 - TTC#1 Stopped BCP! Let's DO this!
1/2010 - BFP (Natural)
10/2010 - DS born! Yay!
12/2010 - DH diagnosed with stage 3B testicular cancer.
1/2011 - Sperm donation made (11 vials) before removal of testicle.
10/2011 - Complications with DH and lymph nodes in groin area removed. No longer able to ejaculate.
1/2014 - TTC#2 - IUI#1. No luck. Findings: DH sperm did not survive freeze. RE recommends IVF with ICSI.
3/2014 - IVF Cycle #1 Started BCP
4/2014 - Lupron, Gonal-F, and Menopur
5/7/2014 - ER day (25 eggs retrieved, 15 mature)
5/10/2014 - 6 fertilized, 3 embryos frozen - one grade A and two Grade B. Plan was to grow out to blastocyst stage but rest of eggs arrested by day 3. Decided to freeze on day 3.
11/2014 - Tore ankle ligament and had surgery , rehab through early 2014
FET attempt #1 - Jan 2015. My A1C was too high, therefore my RE wouldn't do the transfer
FET attempt #2 - Feb 2016 (hopeful). A1C and blood tests came back normal. Looking to do this naturally.

Hope to get to know you all and wish you all best of luck! I'm in your corner and understanding of the flood of emotions this all brings!

  • Welcome!!!  What is your A1C?   I hope your FET works out great!! I have one frozen embryo that we are hoping to do a FET in february as well!  
  • Welcome!  Fx for your FET!  It sounds like you have been through a lot and I wish you all the very best!

  • A1C was at 6.3 and doc wanted it under 6.0 in order to even consider FET. I have been working hard this last month or so and got it down to 5.7, so we are moving forward. Currently on CD 10 taking OPKs.
