FET failed.....but I got pregnant anyway! — The Bump
Pregnant after IF

FET failed.....but I got pregnant anyway!

Apparently, I fit in here.

Had a failed FET in July, but took a random HPT yesterday and it was POSITIVE.  Had HCG drawn at my fertility clinic this am, and my level was 119,644.  Having an US tomorrow to confirm things/dates and maybe convince us that this is actually real.

Totally shocked.  The beta after our FET on 7/23 was zero, so there is no chance that embryo sat around and implanted weeks later.  I had also taken a HPT on 8/11 prior to a trip out of town where I was planning to drink, and it was negative, too.  Had only minor spotting after my negative beta for two days, and no period at all since then. Have had minor cramping/discomfort for the past 3 weeks or so, which I thought was my period getting ready to start (except it has been WEEKS of this).

Still wrapping my mind around things, but all signs point to me being right around 8 weeks pregnant.
Me: Age 40  Husband: Age 41
Chemo killed my ovaries (along with a BRCA1 mutation, which causes DOR)
4/30/13 ER just prior to chemo: 8 embryos frozen at 2pn. 2 survived to blasts/1 PGS normal

4/16 ER cancelled on CD7: 1 follicle on L/ 0 follicles on R
FET #1  7/13/16  BFN

Super shocker +HPT 9/19
Baby Alyce arrived 5/8/17

Went forward with donor eggs from my sister for baby #2
ER 4/24, 5 eggs fertilized/1 survived to blast and was chromosomally normal.

FET 2/15 (my sister/donor's birthday!).  Beta 10dp5dt:172; beta 12dp5dt: 425
