BFP after 3 years trying - first IVF, 37 yrs old

Hi everyone,

Like so many on here I promised I would come on here to write my story if I should get a BFP, and I am very excited to be doing that tonight!

It was a long road here as I know many of you have experienced or are experiencing. Infertility is one of the most difficult things a woman can face - psychologist say the mental process of dealing with infertility is similar to that of a cancer diagnosis, so please be kind to yourselves if you are dealing with this right now or starting to suspect that diagnosis is coming. I certainly found it extremely difficult. There were times where I had a handle on it and could focus on other things while I waited (so much waiting on this journey which is the worst) and times where it consumed me and I was completely miserable. I have learned a lot about myself along the way, and I am stronger and better for it in the end like any struggle we face in life, and I've had my share. So before I jump into my story, ladies who are struggling to get pregnant, I am with you and think about all of you and always will. Husbands, if you're on here on behalf of your wives which is something I've seen a few times, hang tight. She'll come through this and so will you. Never give up hope. Others have walked the same path before you and, regardless of the outcome, created a beautiful life for themselves. My Naturopath struggled with infertility and never got her miracle baby, but her practice is now focused on helping women get pregnant, and she loves it and loves her full life of travelling and freedom. I was starting to think it was something I would do as well - change my life to find a way to help women and children, too. There is a life beyond having children, but I know that's so difficult to think about now. My heart goes out to all of you who are trying to get pregnant. I am sending so much love and light your way. I will always feel a kinship with you. Being a woman, eh? The struggle is real : )

To try to summarize my story, I tried for a year starting when I was 34. I never thought I wanted kids until I did which pretty much came around from meeting an amazing man and marrying him which shifted everything in me. We started trying doing the OPK process, temps, the whole nine yards and nothing was happening. I was a bit surprised as someone who was always health conscious and focused on eating well and exercising - not a smoker, not a big drinker, etc. But at the same time, I was struggling with painful periods coming off birth control and started to suspect endometriosis.

With my age and the suggestion you go see a specialist sooner rather than later on top of the issues with my period, I checked in with my GP. He felt it was premature to go to a fertility clinic, but agreed to send me for an ultrasound. The ultrasound showed no abnormalities, which I didn't really think it would as endometriosis is often only diagnosable through a laparoscopy. I brought that up and he said if I had it then it would've shown up on the ultrasound. He said it was just cramps and it was normal. Being that I was passing out and vomiting from the pain I knew something was up and he was wrong. Not getting anywhere with him and his lack of knowledge about the female reproductive system, I pushed to be referred to a fertility clinic and he eventually agreed.

The fertility clinic sent me for a bunch of testing. A hysteroscopy showed I had something in my uterus which may or may not be of concern (could've been an air bubble he said), but we should check it out. Also wanted to do that laparoscopy to see if I have endometriosis. Found out I do have endometriosis, and I also had polyps in my uterus.

3rd fet cycle worked

If I got a positive, I told myself I would come back here and write down my two week wait symptoms so that maybe it could be helpful to others. I am hoping myself that this baby sticks and is a healthy one.
We got pregnant with one baby on our first fresh IVF cycle in 2015.
We had some Frosty's and the first frozen cycle with those, we only put one in and it did not work. The second time we put two perfect embryos in and it still did not work. After that I had a hysteroscopy and they did not find anything wrong. This time, the third time, we also put in 2 embryos.

Day of transfer:
Emotional. Very bloated and gassy. At night, very light cramping. Woke up at 4 am and couldn't go back to sleep. Kept having adrenaline rushes over and over. Just anxious.
1dp5dt:
Still light cramping. And still very emotional. Very bloated and gassy and constipated. Boobs not really sore. Also woke up at 4 am with anxiety, very hard time getting back to sleep. Anxious thru out Day also.
2dp5dt:
Exact same as yesterday except was able to go to sleep easier when I woke up at 4 am.
Also around 10:30 at night, I noticed the slightest amount of brown spotting in my underwear. Went to pee right after and never saw any sign of that again.
3dp5dt:
Same as yesterday but slept better. Still having cramping but it comes in waves. For awhile today I went a little while feeling nothing and got very sad thinking something was wrong. Body felt quiter. Also didn't wake up in the middle of the night thank goodness!
4dp5dt:
More cramping again. Never has been painful like strong period pms crAmps but for sure feels like something is going on. Feeling a little more hope but very emotional like a crazy person. Hubby and I went out to breakfast and started crying because my husband forgot to order me a decaf coffee instead of regular hahahah. Ya......
5dp5dt:
Had to get on a plane today. Woke up very early to get on plane so extremely tired. Also woke up sweaty. Still light cramping and again very emotion. Cried a lot today. (Starting to get lame all of the emotions). Noticed creamy slippery discharge. Bloated. Uterus feels heavy.
6dp5dt:
Very tired just literally could take a nap at any moment. Also didn't feel like my normal coffee in the am. Didn't gross me out just didn't feel like it. Noticed when I was laying on my stomach for my pio shot, my boobs were sore, first time I have noticed. Also emotional as usual. Going to bed I felt like something was telling me I was pregnant. (Still light on and off waves of cramping).
Also had creamy slippery discharge. Oh and mid back pain so intense!!! Like really bad. Noticed it a bit yesterday but today was the worst. Will radiate to low back pain also. Bloated. Uterus feels heavy.
7dp5dt:
Mild cramping. Boobs sore. Back hurts. Have to pee more. And uterus just feels heavy. Bloated.
Today my doctor met me get a beta quant today (a little early I know)
So had very strong anxiety.
Beta was positive at 45.2. Still haven't peed on anything as seeing negatives in the past have been to painful.
Praying it sticks and is healthy. I wish all of you the best and please don't give up. This was third frozen transfer for me.

BFP after 2nd Round of IVF

I still can't believe I am finally writing my very own BFP story after stalking these boards for hope for 3 years while TTC. Sorry this may be long, it has been a long journey. Our TTC story began a year after marriage in April 2014. My cycles were never regular growing up, so I wasn't surprised that they were totally irregular when coming off birth control. I had read about the herbal supplement Vitex to help regulate a woman's cycle and even knew someone that became pregnant while using it so I thought "why not?" and ordered some online. Shortly after starting the supplement I started spotting and thought "Yay! It is already giving me a period!" although the bleeding went on for weeks and weeks. Finally I mentioned it to my doctor and she wanted me to have a pelvic ultrasound to figure out where the bleeding was coming from and to also check for PCOS since my cycles were always irregular. No PCOS (thank god), but I did have one large ovarian cyst that was bleeding. It eventually needed removed since it was not skrinking on its own. I had a laparoscopic surgery in December 2014 to remove the cyst, in which my doctor also informed me I had endometriosis which she removed. She then wanted me to start on Clomid to get me to ovulate regularly and of course I thought that was the answer we were looking for, right? Wrong. I did 6 rounds of Clomid and ovulated every single cycle, but still no pregnancy. My husband had a sperm analysis that came back fine. I also had an HSG to check if my tubes were open and they were. So why was I not getting pregnant?? My doctor then referred me to the fertility clinic. I wanted to try a few rounds of Femara because through research I had found that some people had more success with that than Clomid. After a few months of Femara, still no pregnancy. We then started trying IUI with Femara for ovulation induction and an HCG trigger shot. 3 IUIs and still ovulating every time and no pregnancy. In between cycles I also had a hysteroscopy to check for uterine polyps or anything that could be preventing pregnancy. My doctor did remove a small polyp during that procedure but said it probably wasn't big enough to be a problem anyway. Then why was I not getting pregnant?? I couldn't believe that we were at the point of talking about IVF with no real definitive reason as to why we were not conceiving. Sure, my endometriosis had probably grown back over time but my tubes were open, and I ovulated every time with ovulation induction meds. I was so frustrated to not have a clear answer. And how were we going to afford IVF?? After some thought we decided it was what we needed to do as we were NOT giving up on our dream of becoming parents. We saved up the money we needed and in September 2016 we started the IVF journey. We had 11 eggs retrieved, 9 were mature, and 7 fertilized. On day 5 when we went in for transfer, we had 5 blastocysts to choose from and put one back in. A few days later and lab called and said NONE were able to be frozen. I was crushed, thinking at least a few would have made it to freeze the way they talked about how good my embryos were and that we would have at least one more chance with a frozen embryo transfer. Now everything was riding on this one little embryo that was in me. The TWW was absolute hell. I started spotting around 7dpt and tried to think positively (implantation spotting?) but it continued on through my blood test. I got the call that my beta was 25, and although it was a positive test, the number was very low and was told to be "cautiously optimistic" and as long as my beta 2 days later had doubled we should be alright. I of course didn't listen and was ecstatic that this had finally worked for us, I just knew it was all going to be ok. I was excited to get the call 2 days later from my second beta, but my world was quickly shattered when I was told my beta had dropped and I had most likely had a chemical pregnancy. We were devastated. What were we possibly going to do now? We had already spent so much money, could we really go through it all AGAIN? We took a break from TTC through the holidays and planned to try again in early 2017 when we could save up enough for another round. We were going to use a different IVF protocol this time to see if that gave us any better luck. On egg retrieval day we got 22 eggs! Of the 22 eggs, 12 were mature, and only 5 of those 12 fertilized. Our numbers were quickly dwindling but I tried to remain hopeful. On day 5 for transfer, we had one perfect blastocyst and 2 morulas. The doctor suggested transferring the one blastocyst and leaving the 2 morulas culture a few more days to hopefully become blasts and freeze. Of course I got the call that they were unable to be frozen and we were in the same situation as our first cycle- everything was riding on this one perfect blast. I tried to remain hopeful but I was absolutely terrified and the TWW was torture once again.

BFP after 4 years

Well after 4 years of trying, 2 laparoscopic surgery's and 4 rounds of IVF we finally got our BFP. I used to refer back to this site every single month and therefore want to share my story to give others hope and encourage those that are going through something similar not to give up not to give up. It's a long one i'm afraid.
We started trying for a baby a few months after my 29th birthday at the encouragement of my practice nurse. I'd had a long history of painful periods and a specialist had once mentioned i may have endometriosis but at that time the only treatment she would suggest was to go on the pill, which i did although things never really improved.
So after 4 months off the pill (and actively trying to conceive) i visited my GP as my period pain was unmanageable. I also had a long list of symptoms such as fatigue, headaches and general abdo pain throughout the month. She referred me to the local hospital were they arranged to do a investigative laparoscopy. This found stage II endometriosis throughout my abdomen. By the time we went back to see the specialist to discuss the results we have been trying for a baby for 7 months however she wasn't particularly concerned however i pushed for my husband to be sent for tests at this point. Two months later we were back at the hospital to discuss my husbands results which showed very poor motility. The consultant felt it was likely this that was stopping us from becoming pregnant and was happy to refer us to the fertility specialist to discuss treatment. In the mean time he wanted me to commence on hormone therapy for 6 months, this would put me in the menopause and would likely have an effect on my system for a year. After doing some research of my own i discovered that although this helps the symptoms of endometriosis it doesn't improve fertility.
We have been trying for a baby for 16 months when we had our first appointment in the fertility center. They felt IVF with ICSE would be the best way forward and we started our first cycle in the September and then had a further cycle in the January. Both resulted in a high number of eggs retrieved but nearly all of them didn't make it passed day 3, and the ones that did were of poor quality. It was then decided that i would have a further laparoscopy but this time with ablation to remove the endometriosis deposits. This showed my endometriosis had progressed to stage III/IV however they removed as much as they could.
We then tried naturally for 4 months before moving on to our 3rd IVF cycle. This again had similar results to the first 2 rounds however i did have a BFP for a week before beginning to bleed.
For our 4th round things started to get a little more serious, they admitted that they shouldn't have pushed on using the same drugs for 3 cycles and decided to put me on a short protocol for this go. The consultant also wanted me to take 3 months of Omega 3 and Co-enzyme. I also read the book 'It starts with the egg' by Rebecca Flett and made some changes to my diet and lifestyle.
We did our 4th cycle in November 2016 and retrieved over 30 eggs, because of this the decision was made to freeze all. At the time i was heartbroken, given my history of the eggs deteriorating in quality after day 3 i thought we had wasted all this time and money for nothing. Unfortunately the same thing happened during this cycle with all but 2 eggs surviving to day 5 however the 2 remaining eggs were of a much better quality and were able to be frozen. We planned to return one embryo in February of this year however the embryologist felt that due to my history the chances of twins were slim and encouraged us to thaw and transfer both, which we agreed to.
Straight away this cycle felt different, i didn't have any drugs in my system as i'd opted for a natural cycle and felt strong and well.
Around 4dp5dt i had a little cramping, on 5dp5dt i felt really tired and a little run down, more cramping but different to period pains and i just didn't *FEEL* premenstrual. On 6dp5dt i had some pink spotting and very naughtily did a test which showed a very faint BFP. Although it was early days i felt positive as i felt well in myself and my cramps were not like my usual pre period ones.
I'd say my real symptoms didn't kick in until i was a good week over my missed period date.
Fast forward to 7 weeks pregnant and my scan at the fertility clinic confirmed i was pregnant with TWINS!! I was in complete shock but over the moon.
I'm now 18 weeks pregnant and both are doing well. I've had a really smooth pregnancy so far with very little symptoms at all.
I know it's cliche but honestly do not give up, unless you have gone through the pain of infertility you cannot begin to understand the daily heartache it brings. Wishing each and everyone of you all the best of luck x

Natural BFP w/ 400,000 sperm count SEVERE Male Factor

I'll keep this short & to the point but wanted to post this to give someone else hope!! I was never able to find any natural stories on counts as low as my husbands.

I stopped birth control in 2010. We werent trying or preventing. We started really trying and opk strips from 2011-2012 (In our early twenties) My cycles were 30 days long. Nothing abnormal. After a year, we had a sperm count done on my husband and his count was only 800,000 TOTAL and only 50% motile. So only 400,000 able-bodied sperm. Genetic tests on both of us came back normal. Fertility clinic gave us a less than 1%chance of conceiving naturally. (Also, Husband had an undescended testicle at birth and surgery was performed when he was 2 years old so he has a varicocele on his left side and his left testicle is atrophied which is usually not a problem as long as the other testicle is functioning fine per the Urologist, sperm counts can still be normal. His isn't. Not sure why the right one isnt functioning as normal like it should but we never got it looked into or looked into varicocele surgery) Fertility dr put my husband on 3 months of Clomid and we did another sperm count. No improvement. He told us he wouldnt let us do IUI without 5million count minimum so he recommended IVF and ICSI. We decided to give up due to lack of funds and stress. Kept trying on our own and then stopped trying actively in mid 2013 after doing the whole Pre-Seed, opk strips, ferning checks etc. Nothing worked. We decided to move on and accept a life without children.

In December 2014, I got pregnant. HUGE surprise! SO elated! No more than a day after getting my BFP, I miscarried at 5 weeks. Blighted Ovum. Just absolutely crushed us. Naturally miscarried. We assumed that was a fluke chance and never thought we would get another so we didnt start trying again or anything. just not preventing.

In November 2015, I got pregnant AGAIN! Had ultrasounds at 6 and 8 weeks along and saw and heard a heartbeat and everything was fine or so it seemed. I began bleeding at 12.5weeks a few days before my next ultrasound and when we went to the ER we found out the baby had passed at 9 weeks. Missed Miscarriage. Naturally miscarried. No testing on tissue was done because we wanted to bury our baby. No testing on me was done either.

2nd cycle after my last miscarriage and I got pregnant AGAIN!!! Not trying or preventing. This time I was put on progesterone suppositories at 4 weeks until 14weeks along just in case and I am proud to say that we now have a happy& healthy 7 month old little girl after 6 years!!!

I honestly think that the only reason we ever got our miracle baby was because of my miscarriages. It may be weird to think that but let me explain. I read that a womans cervix becomes slit like after it dilates a bit and tissue passes out even with a miscarriage so I believe that because of those, my cervix was a bit more open afterwards and allowed more sperm to go through. It only takes one!!!!!

We have not had his sperm tested since the first few times years ago but I cant imagine anything has changed. His varicocele is still there. According to doctors and a fertility specialists, it should be near impossible for me to have gotten pregnant THREE times NATURALLY with only 400,000 sperm but it happened! Dont ever lose hope!!!!!

I hope this story helps someone.

TTC 5 years IVF Miracle against all odds

I cannot believe I am finally able to post a BFP story.
We have been actively trying for 5 years and passively trying for 4 years prior to that.
We've tried everything under the sun. BBT tracking, Preseed, Soft cups, Clear Blue monitors, OPKs, acupuncture, Chinese herbs, Mayan abdominal massage, yoga, diet change, so many different supplements, 2 failed IVFs, hypnotherapy, gave up caffeine alcohol cigarettes.. you name it we have done it. Saw so many different specialists that supposedly got even the most infertile couples pregnant. Spent tens of thousands of dollars but nothing worked for us! I had low ovarian reserve, adenomyosis from two terminated pregnancies, high TSH, Low FSH, DH had low count, motility and morphology. Odds were against us. We took breaks for a few months every now and then just to keep our sanity and live our lives normally. I was reaching the end of my rope and honestly ready to give up and come to terms with a life with no kids.

I was on the phone with my mother from Korea and telling her we would be trying until the end of the year and if it doesn't happen by then I think I can say with confidence we have tried everything in our power and the rest is not up to us. That we would just live our lives happily without kids. She agreed that is a good plan but suggested that we try one last IVF round in Korea. Then she would drop the subject as well. But something was telling her that we should give it a try in Korea.

We agreed and took 3 months to prepare ourselves physically and mentally to give ourselves the best outcome for our final try. I continued with acupuncture and herbs as well as prenatal, fish oil, vitamin D, probiotics good diet and exercise. A new thing I added just for my own peace of mind was fertility coaching and drinking 4 cups of red raspberry leaf infusion and red clover infusion. Every single thing I did played a part especially the coaching. Also being super relaxed at my mom's house where I didn't have to lift a finger or think about work.

I came back from Korea 8dpt. Was told to wait and get a blood test after 10 days. I did not poas as I have had so much disappointment and didn't want false negatives or positives. At around 11 days I did get a blood test and the result was BFP!!! I was on tons of progesterone so I had the sore boobs on and off, the twinges, and late period. I've experienced all this before with bfns so just tried to ignore these symptoms. The one symptom that was really strange was the crazy fatigue. A few days before my blood test I would start to yawn uncontrollably in the middle of the day. Also I almost fell asleep at the wheel of my car a couple times driving home from work. This has never happened to me in my life. It was like I took a sleeping pill or something. This crippling fatigue continued through until about week 12.

I believe the moment we emptied our expectations and made peace with not having a child was the moment the door opened for us. I know it sounds ironic and doesn't make sense. Believe me I was there. It took me many years to understand this concept. I hope this helps some of you ladies out there. Baby dust to you all.

BFP after 8 long years of trying , thank God he's Faithful!

I have read all of these BFP stories for years, and I said I would post after I got my BFP. I am 38 yrs old and DH is 39yo, we've been married 10 yrs. My pregnancy road began in 2008, I tried natural cycles with Femara, then in 2010 found out I had endometriosis from exploratory laparascopy and found out DH had severe male factor. DH and I continued to try to get pregnant but nothing. In 2012 we tried a menopur cycle with hcg trigger but nothing. 2014 I had another laparascopy and polyp removal. We then tried IUI x2 , but still BFN. In 2015 after a failed IUI, we decided to look into IVF. Well November 2015 we had 7 eggs fertilized by ICSI. We transferred 2 3 day embryos. Needless to say, we were both devastated when it didn't work. We had 1 last embryo that was frozen, but we decided to wait because honestly I was very discouraged at this point. Well March 16th, 2017 we decided to transfer our 1 and only 2AB blastocyte frozen embryo, and on 3/27/17, I found out I was pregnant with beta of 270! I am now 7 weeks 6 days, and I know this is truly a blessing from the Lord. I thank him daily for this miracle. Here are my early symptoms :
1dpo Bloated feeling, pulling at navel.
2po- had very vivid dream, where I was killing people who were trying to kill me ( I know crazy right) that same night I had a somewhat spontaneous orgasmic like feeling. I just knew I was pregnant.
3dpo-4dpo- gassy, mild cramp here and there
5dpo- I had a very sharp pain when walking at the park with my mom, I had to stop walking for a second.
6dpt- early that morning around 2am, I took pregnancy test- BFN. I decided no more testing.
7pt- period like cramps and pressure in pelvic area
8dpt- I was at the grocery store and felt what felt like a menstrual period. I ran home and wiped say dark red/brownish blood. I wanted to cry, but prayed and took a HPT. I wasn't going to look at it thought I was out but I saw 2 faint lines. I took a digital and it said negative, so I decided to wait for my Beta in 3 days.
8dpt-10dpt I had very light brown or beige spotting, a cramp here and there.
11dpt- I had beta- 270 BFP
13dpt- beta 599
20dpt- beta 6,331
My EDD is 12/2/2017, MY 11TH Anniversary! ! God has a sense of humor!
Let this be encouragement to all of you, with God all things are possible, Only Believe! Doubt the Doubt! If he did it for me he'll do it for you too!

BFP with period cramps and no other symptoms

Hi all,
I have just received a call from my IVF clinic saying that we got our BFP!!!
I just wanted to post on here in case this helps anyone else.
I have a long history of IVF, miscarriages, ectopics and basically thought that I was out this cycle.
I had what I was 100% sure was AF cramps from 8dp 5dt. I was so sure that AF would show that I told everyone I'm out and cried and cried.
Well turns out I don't know my own body as well as I thought. I have no symptoms the last 2 days at all and today some more niggling cramping. The only tiny glimmer of hope I had waiting for these results was that AF hadn't showed.
Please send me lots of sticky vibes and remember that every pregnancy is different and to never rule yourself out until the fat lady sings xxx

So grateful!!

Hi ladies!!

I am just so grateful to have the opportunity to post my story on here. This site has been my go-to for inspiration for the past 3 1/2 years since we first started trying to get pregnant.

I am 27, DH is 28 and we have male factor infertility. We have plenty of sperm with great motility, but the morphology at one point was 2.5%. After making some diet and lifestyle changes (no drinking) and adding fertilaid for men to the mix, as well as my husband seeing a urologist who prescribed him clomid, his numbers all around went up. Morphology went up to 3.5% which is huge. But even after all that and 3 IUI cycles, we had only had a chemical pregnancy which ended shortly after a very faint positive with bleeding. So we moved on to IVF.

Back in Oct/Nov I started stimming with follistim, which is honestly not bad at all. The pen is genius. I responded really well to the meds, too well. As we got closer to egg retrieval it became clear we wouldn't be able to do a fresh cycle. We would freeze all and do a frozen transfer. On ER day they retrieved over 60, yes, 60 eggs, 48 mature. We froze 18 eggs, fertilized 20 with icsi. In the end I had 10 perfect blasts to freeze. My 1st frozen transfer was in Dec. And we transfered 1 embryo. In hindsight, I was crazy to do it so close to the holidays as I was very busy and extremely stressed. I didn't take enough time after the transfer, just the day after and I was back to work. Bfn.

This frozen cycle I wanted everything to be different. I was way more relaxed during the lead up. I cut back to 30 hours at work and the week of transfer I was on vacation. Transfer day I went and had a massage in the morning, came home ate some soup and then went to clinic for transfer. I was so much more relaxed this time around. We transferred 2 perfect blasts. And I really made an effort to just lounge on the couch the next few days. No plans.

5dp5dt I took a frer and could SWEAR I saw a line. It was extremely faint and you could really only see it once I cracked open the test and took the strip out, and at that point I convinced myself it was an evap. I waited until 7dp5dt and took another frer with fmu it was positive, faint, but undeniably there. That afternoon I took another and a digital (totally didn't expect the digital to come up positive), the frer was darker than the mornings and the digital said PREGNANT. I could not believe it! I went in at 10dp5dt and my beta HCG was 79.4. 1st ultrasound is scheduled for 7 weeks. Based on beta I think it's a singleton, but will find out for sure at ultrasound.

Ladies, if you've been at this for a long time, don't give up. It will happen. Just have faith! Really the only symptom I had was just a heavy feeling in the uterus! Sore boobs could be attributed to meds. As of now, boobs are really sore and itchy. My back aches, and I get tired very easily.

Best of luck to everyone!!
