first of all, congrats to everyone who got bfp!
just got my result, wanted to share:
1st ever ivf cycle (never tried iui or anything else)
im 34, hubby 42, unexplained infertility for at least 5 years, but we never tried rigorously to conceive either
had to do a polypectomy prior to starting the cycle
ivf shots: menopur, gonal-f, then added ganerelix every morning
retrieved 20+ eggs, ended up with two AA blastcyst, another two lesser graded frozen (considering the number of eggs retrieved, i thought my egg survival rate was pretty sad)
after retrieval immediately gained 5 lbs water weight, needed to pee ALL the time for several days, bloated
5 day egg transfer of two blastcysts, it was a little difficult for the doctor to navigate to the right place (sharp turns in the "tunnel"), but he was patient and succeeded
after the transfer, i immediately felt like completely normal. no discomfort besides very minor sore breasts, so i thought it might have failed. starting 5 days after ET, only new sensation was very small amount of pressure on my ovaries, just like how i felt when i was taking the stimulating shots. thats about it in terms of symptoms.
got bfp today, yeah!
btw, i need to say, ive never encountered a better doctor (any field) than the one I have for this ivf cycle. he explained everything in detail, extremely caring and such a soothing presence, we had absolute confidence in him, and the procedures he performed on me all resulted in no pain whatsoever. he was the hero who made this usually stressful experience a total breeze, not to mention successful. so, if anyone is in long island ny and need a reference, let me know and i would highly recommend him to you.
