Re: March IVF

  • @Rachel_leigh22 -hey, yes, @caseyw8784 is right.  My dr. didn't think it was necessary for me to test due to my age.  He said if I ended up having recurrent miscarriages or issues down the road it may be different, but at this time it wasn't necessary.

    Me: 33, DH: 40
    July 2016: IVF #1 (froze embryos)
    Aug. 2016: Hysteroscopy to remove a few polyps & Laparoscopy
    Oct. 2016: FET #1 BFN
    Nov. 2016: FET #2 BFP (ended in CP)
    March 2017: IVF #2 Fresh Transfer of 2 Blasts = BFP!!! (EDD: 11/27/17)
    Froze 5 Blasts
    DS born on 11/2/17!!!  
    Back to try for Baby #2 :)

  • For those who are curious why PGS is recommended for women over 40.
    All the other are mentioned - PGS-abnormal embryos will either fail to implant, result in m/s, or a life birth with genetic disorder. So the doctor want to reduce the chance of that. Here is the graph I found that plots the woman's age vs the % of abnormal embryos (statistically):

    Me: 36 DH: 44
    I don't produce FSH, so no natural menstrual cycle. DH has reduced morphology.

    Time off to divorce, get back on my feet, find a new hubby and get married again 💑
    March 2017 IVF#1: ~70 follicles, 13R, 10M, 7F, 3B = 2 PGS Normal (both XY) - no transfer due to ohss
    Sept 2017 FET#1: BFP, Beta#1 - 253, Beta#2 - 528, DS born 05/31/2018 👨‍👩‍👦
    Dec 2019 FET#2: BFN
    Changed clinic, planning March 2020 IVF#2 - postponed due to the pandemic
    April 2020 IVF #2: ~30 follicles, 24R, 12M, 8F, 4B = 2XY & 2XX, all normal  <3
    Planning FET#3 in Sept 2020 with one of the XX 🤞

  • @caseyw8784 Enjoy your trip! 

    @Hopeful_mom Good luck with your trigger and blood work!

    @PoeMasque I'm sorry to hear about your blasts, but FX the transferred stick around for 40 weeks! 

    AFM I haven't posted in a while, but Wednesday the doctor decided to cancel my cycle because my follicles weren't growing
  • OK, part of my message didn't post again. I think it's my emojis. 

    AFM I haven't posted in a while, but Wednesday the doctor decided to cancel my cycle because my follicles weren't growing. As much as I tried to prepare myself for that, it still stung a little. So, now they're prepping me for the embryo transfer with donor eggs. I'm taking estrogen patches, progesterone suppositories, Prednol (to suppress my immune system) and baby aspirin and 1 Clexane shot/day (to thin my blood). The ER for the donor was sometime today, but they haven't provided any numbers. They do guarantee 10 eggs, but of course that doesn't mean that's how many embryos we will necessarily have. The good news is my endometrium was thick enough to continue the process so I'm at least happy with that. I just keep telling myself it was meant for us to come here and this is exactly why. I was able to try my own eggs, which the REs didn't think would work, and I have the donor as a backup. The 5dt will happen on Thursday. FX for us all.

  • When is your first beta @PoeMasque? FX for two sticky embabies! 

    Good luck with your retrieval tomorrow @Hopeful_mom!

    afm, cd8...two 13mm follies on each side & a few more just behind.  Hoping to get more than 3 eggs this time

  • So it's day 5 and other than the fertilization rate, I have yet to hear about my embryo growth. I sent a nasty gram to the IVF coordinator, who responded she is out of the office but CC'd two other people for them to update me. I am so upset right now. I don't know what to do......
  • @angelaag -omg I would be mad too!  did you hear back yet?  are you doing a fresh transfer?

    Did you hear anything yet? I would be livid. I'm so sorry!!!
  • I called the emergency line! I am doing frozen with PGS. So I guess they just aren't worried about keeping me in the loop!! Doctor called back. Out of the six, we had 3 make it. He wants to wait a day on 2 more. So we wait more. I am an emotional lunatic right now!!

  • thanks for the good wishes everyone, just nervous what tomorrow will bring.  Am I the only one that gets nervous thinking the trigger is done wrong and you want make it.  Glad the blood work is a go so thats good.  I know many have brought this up but I dont remember, has anyone else gained weight during stemming.  I've been on drugs pretty much a year and have gained about a good 20lbs....but this week I've gained 5lbs in the last week WTH!!  

    @angelaag I would be FREAKING OUT as well!!  dear lord!!  Glad 1/2 so far made it through, hoping more can catch up!!  At least you know you have something to test...I'm terrified of that myself!  How many did you retrieve again?

    clovelyone so sorry your cycle was cancelled!  Its great that you had your back up in place and ready to go with that!  Glad your body is cooperating for a transfer how exciting!!  So your Donor was stemming at the same time as you. I hope you get a great report, we'll look forward to hearing the update!!

      Aera11 congrats on your follies all growing together for you hope it continues!!  Sounds like you might be close!!

  • Hi ladies!! Gotta admit this one was a tough one!! I needed rest immediately!! I was asking OH to post for me and he said I'm delirious now!

    Ok good news is we got 10 out woohoo, one already looks wonky so he's considering that I got 9. I will say this time really was way more uncomfortable.  The Anesthesiologist was super nice and gave me some pain meds. Hoping I got some winners in there!!! I wish this was the first cycle.  They let OH sit with me after so that was nice! Perks to being last on  a Sunday. I really have been super dizzy and quizzy this time around.

     You'll all appreciate this, my RE was laughing that I was barely a wake and the first thing I asked was did we get any, how many EGGS :)
    I gotta one track mind for sure!! Not sure how many were actually mature as he didn't say. Maybe that comes tomorrow with the fertilization report?

    When I tried posting earlier i couldn't even focus and it was making me sick.  Assuming the joys of getting a few more eggs, hopefully it's worth it :)

    @IfYouCanDreamIt awwww sorry ur not feeling different BUT that doesn't mean anything everyone is different!! R u going to poas?

    @Angelaag That is awesome!! Way to go fighter eggs!! Will u prep for an FET next cycle?

  • Hi Ladies! Hope you all had a good weekend. It was so nice to get away for a few days...and so much has happened on this board! I'm still catching up reading them all, but, so much action!

    AFM, AF arrived on Friday (1st since ER) and since we are still waiting for the testing results, my RE is having me wait a full cycle before doing a FET cycle. So if AF acts like it normally does, I should be getting it around April 22-24, so here's to FX that I'll be able to start the estrace pills/patches soon after, with a transfer in early May! :smiley:

  • I'm CD10 and today my estradiol dropped a little.  I added in cetrotide last night so I know that can effect the estradiol level but it still makes me nervous.  My numbers rose so much more last time.  Have any of you had this happen and not had your IVF cycle cancelled? I'm trying to not over think and stess out about it but now I'm getting worried they'll cancel this cycle.






  • HI ladies!  Finally my report is in and so far I've got 7 out of the 10 going strong woohoo!!  Of course I would've liked all 9 as I knew one was already iffy.  You know I wanted more info. but I don't think the girl was qualified to know anymore.  I'm hoping the lab might have more.  I do know that 4 were with icsi and 3 with regular fert.  I'm actually happy some made it through the "regular" way, his boys only had one direction to go in.  My big joke is how his boys are bad with directions on their own HA!!!

    This is my first time freezing so I'm gonna be a wreck till we first get to that point!! :s

    @caseyw8784 hope you had a memorable weekend, the weather seemed to hold a bit for you!  I wonder if my dr with want to wait a cycle too...ugh I hope not, maybe we'll be transfer buddies :) 

    @aer11 how has your follies been progressing?

  • @Hopeful_mom Congrats, 7 fertilized is a great feat. I had to wait one cycle too for FET, but make sure you ask your RE and plan accordingly, because in some cases the PGS results don't come in before CD1. It also depends on how your hormones and ovary size do after ER. 
    May I ask why you had half ICSI half normal fertilization? I haven't heard of this before. 
    Hopeful_mom
  • liljoy so funny someone else just asked me that, the 1/2 and 1/2.  I asked the same thing about icsi.  I think they feel if you have a decent amount of eggs AND a good sample they prefer to do 1/2 and 1/2.  Apparently OH had a better sample for this cycle and wanted to do both.  The RE said we both did great on sunday :) ICSI is still chosen by a person and based on looks, movenment etc...I almost preferred that myself BUT doing it the "regular" way they feel the STRONGEST on every point will make it through.  Of course I'm curious what happened with the other 2.  I believe I'm going to bank a few and do one more cycle of meds so its all on my body if its up on a transfer.  This last cycle was definitely tougher on my body so I guess we shall see.

  • Hi ladies. I've been MIA. I took a break last week during my wait for my HCG test. I took a home pregnancy test the night before the blood test because I started spotting. It was negative.  I spent hours upon hours crying. The next morning I went for the blood test and surprisingly my HCG was 25.  I spent the rest of the weekend spotting. I went for my repeat HCG and it increased to 57. I'm still cramping and bleeding heavier so I'm not feeling confident at all. I have another HCG test coming up to see where we are. Fingers crossed!

    Im a week behind on everyone's updates. I hope everyone is doing well. I probably won't be able to catch up.

    @Hopeful_mom Great fert report (and happy birthday!).  We are leaning toward half/half this round, as last time of 7 mature, only three fertilized WITH all ICSI'd.  We had the options of all IVF, all ICSI, or half/half (costs the same as all ICSI).  We don't have male factor (got *tw* pregnant naturally our second month trying last year...just didn't make it to 12 weeks - and already we're three weeks out from our EDD...), and aren't feeling super confident in our lab or the human factor (maybe my old eggs are just too fragile?).  It's a tough call, but I'm glad it worked out well for you - Thinking positive thoughts for their development!

  • @Hopeful_mom what great news!! Hope they stay strong!! 

    AFM, waiting on the 5 blasts PGS results. Just refilled my BCP, but I feel it coming! I'm guessing I will have to wait until May for transfer.

  • @SugarHead that must be so frustrating. I would be a mess if I was bleeding but my beta increased at the same time. Some women still have period like bleeding during pregnancy, so hopefully that is what is happening here. FX your next beta goes well!
    Me: 34

    TTC: 40 months
    Me: endometrial polyps and most recently diagnosed with polypoid endometrium. Mild endometriosis. AMH 4.5. FSH 9.2. TSH 8.5 (recently started synthroid) Everything else normal.
    DH: now an exDH. lol. JUST MEEEEE!
    IVF #1: ER 3/11/17 (5 fertilized) ET 3/16/17 BFP (B#1-113, B#2-534, B#3-3190) MC @ 8 weeks
    TTC with just donor soon!
  • @Hopeful_mom 7 is a great number! FX for them to keep growing & going strong :)

    today my follies were 18, 17, a bunch of 15, 14's 13's and a few around 12/11.  About 15 total.  I'm hoping it was just the cetrotide being added yesterday that made it drop a little.  I'll feel better tomorrow when I know one way or another.  I felt better emotionally after acupuncture today but I'm going to loose my damn mind if this round gets cancelled this far in.

  • Aera11 why on earth do you think you would get cancelled, you pretty much have all of them close in growth, I think you should sit tight.  When is your next scan?  Originally my lead one was 17 and in one day it took all the drugs and popped to 22.5 and I still stemmed another day.  I dont know your background but to me it sounds like your having a great cycle, sit tight and just keep thinking positively!!

    @SugarHead sorry you're having such a hard time it must be very scary.  Is the blood brown or red?  Did it double in the one or two days.  I'm hoping its just a bump in the road and you're fine!

    artemis618 sorry for your loss.  I completely get how you feel, mine was August 8th and with twins they wouldve came sooner. I'm scared I won't even have a transfer by then, which will drive me nuts.  What protocol did you do?  How old are you if you dont mind me asking?  Remember it only takes one!  Are you banking?  I laugh how you're not suppose to be stressed and dear lord could this process be anymore stressful!!!
