June 2018 Moms

IVF baby

Apologies for posting twice.
Me and my partner have gone through our first cycle of IVF and it worked first time. We are so shocked! 
I'm struggling to enjoy the news due to being so worried about baby not sticking! 
It would be nice to chat with anyone that's gone through IVF if there's anyone on the app that has? 
Good luck to everyone, it makes me so happy reading everyone's stories.

    We are  waiting on our positive results from a transfer 7 days ago. This is our 2nd, through IVF with PGS. We are awaiting testing on Thursday ( 9 days post transfer) for our first BFP. 

    Our first was born Sep 2015, and she is great! I am old hat at this stuff, so please ask away...

    5 - IUIs, 3 - IVF retrievals, 2- failed transfers (fresh, and frozen), PGS on second IVF resulted in 1 perfect emby, and DD. 
    3rd IVF w PGS resulted in 3! perfect embys. 1st transfer - Sep 2017 2 more on ice.

    Congratulations! So far my only indication that my IVF pregnancy will be different than any other is that I get more ultrasounds, but I may have already been eligible for those because I'm also AMA. You could start a weekly "PG after IF" thread to talk about things like drug protocols or scans, and I'm sure more IVF mamas will join in as they get their BFPs. You should also intro on the Intro thread and join in all the discussions because there are so many fun aspects to pregnancy to discuss!

  • @rachielaw welcome! Congrats on your BFP! I'll ditto what @eggplantface said; definitely intro and start a PG after IF thread. If you check out one of the previous BMBs (April, May, etc.) that have had a bit more time to get up and running, you'll see there is definitely a lot of participation in those threads typically. Additionally, I wanted to encourage you to check out this: https://forums.thebump.com/discussion/12717352/read-this-first-board-organization#latest  

    We are still probably waiting on at least half of June to get their BFPs so it still seems a bit slow around here, but it will pick up, it always does. :)

  • I am 7dp5dt FET and I'm scared too. I got my first BFP 4dp5dt on cleat blue digital and two frers.  I had very light spotting today and mild cramping.  I'm super hopeful, but my beta isn't til Monday so I'm cautiously optimistic my numbers will be good and ill hold on to my little ones.
