2 years TTC second round IVF

I visited this site on so many occasions and wanted to share my storey to help others. We have been trying to conceive for 2 years with unexplained infertility. I had a slightly below average amh for my age I'm 33. We did 2 rounds of iui and then moved on to ivf. First round I was on 175 of Gonal F they collected 5 eggs 3 fertilised and only ended up with x1 blastocyst for transfer which didn't work. Second round 300 of Gonal F I had 9 eggs retrieved and all 9 fertilised. I was in a lot of pain after this egg collection. On day 5 I had one blastocyst to transfer and was advised they had 4 to freeze which was great news. The next day I got a phone call saying they had another 2 that were good to freeze. This was an unexpected better result this time. My story on my wait: I had no symptoms no sore boobies, no implantation bleeding, I didn't feel sick, I didn't really have an appetite, I had a stressful situation come up and thought well this isn't going to help. The only strange thing was watery CM but I had read that was a side effect or the Crinone. I consistently ate well through this whole process ( I would eat whatever on weekends) There have been so many times through this I have thought I wonder if I will ever get to experience being a Mum. It's still really early days and so much is really out of our control but its good to celebrate the good along the way. We had to remind ourselves through out this journey that this was the most important thing to us and we will keep going and do whatever it takes. I know I'm coming from a positive place because I'm lucky right now but we were once in this situation and got through it and we will appreciate this so much more now from what we have been through. Wishing everyone all the best for their journey.

BFP with FET after 3 Years of Infertility

I promised myself I would put my symptoms if and when it ever happened and finally happened! Still very early and I am very cautiously optimistic but trying to stay hopeful and positive. Don't give up hope everyone - if you don't have it in you to be your cheerleader, find someone who will. My husband was my rock and helped me get through the last few months. Egg Retrieval: June 2017 - Retrieved 13 eggs Did PGS on 7 that survived. 4 abnormal, 3 3 frozen embies Egg Transfer August 25 with a singleton, 5DT PIO shots every night along with estrogen 3 times a day 1DPT and 2DPT: went to mountains for a short trip and it was great...relaxing and good to breathe mountain air 3DPT: sharp twinges and cramps throughout day, drink pom juice for sh*ts and giggles, a couple of pains doubled me over, completely exhausted 4DPT: couple of sharp twinges in morning, some creamy CM, called nurse about sharp pains and she said hopefully implantation and to not worry about it too much. Few small throbs here and there. Nipples tender, tired and craving chocolate 5DPT: Tender and low cramps - no better way to explain them. Felt like period cramps. Off on and on. Creamy CM in morning. Sad and crying to husband. Exhausted. Thinking the progesterone shots were making me crazy. Nipples NOT tender today. Gassy. Totally felt like period was coming on. 6DPT: no cramps as of 9:00 am. later in day had a few low cramps off and on. More positive attitude that day. Super hungry. 7DPT: No cramps in am. Creamy CM in morning No symptoms at all. Thinking it did not work. Throat starts to get sore. 1 or 2 deep twinges in the abdomen. Hungry, 1 BIG random cramp at 9:00 pm. 8DPT: woke up with really sore throat. Tired at lunchtime, lots of creamy CM, few tiny cramps here and there. Took 2 hour nap. Did not sleep well that night. Sweating alot at night. 9DPT: woke up with sore throat again. Creamy CM and then turned to watery CM. Small dull feeling in right ovary. Cramps all day, coming and going. Lots of "pulling" feelings and recently found a term for it "lightning crotch" lol. Such a crazy name but apparently pregnant women feel it. Def. had these sharp pains to the vaginal area. Dizzy, nauseated and heartburn. Overall feeling bad. Woke up in middle of night drenched in sweat. And to top it all off, very gassy. My husband was loving me during this time, lol. 10DPT: Sore nipples, no CM - all dry and that scared me. Gassy and bloated. Pain in lower left ovary area and slightly throbbing. "Lighting crotch" pains and def. period pains. I know my body well after 3 years of examining every feeling and it felt identical to my period coming on. 11DPT: Swear CM had pink in it in am. Uncontrollable crying. Sore throat. Nothing else going on. Went in for my first beta and it was POSITIVE! HCG: 484 and Prog: 31. We were over the moon. About 5 days after test i started bleeding and it has been off and on - of course I thought the worst but Dr. cannot find anything on U/S to indicate an issue. We go back this Monday for our last appt. with our fertility specialist. I have been told that FET folks experience bleeding more than the average person. Know this list was super rambly but I pulled from my journal I kept each day. I was 100% convinced it did not work but lo and behold...our baby is growing and we are so incredibly happy. Dont give up hope ladies!

Bfp on first IVF?!

This was my first IVF cycle and I just got my BFP this morning on an FRER digital test. I'm so excited, but after two years of trying, I'm still worried that maybe the test was wrong or the Ovidrel was still in my system (from 15 days prior?) I go in for Beta tomorrow morning. Weird thing is my Easy @ Home test was still a negative this morning! Maybe because FRER detects it first? Anyways I have to say I have next to no symptoms. I even told my accupunturist I was sure it hadn't worked. I had some cramping at 5dp5dt and some twinges in my lower abdomin. For the most part, I was unsure except for the fact that I've had a way smaller appetite and felt like my heart was beating really fast all week and I couldn't catch my breath. I hope the test was right and my beta is high tomorrow!does anyone know how much HCG an FRER needs to be positive (I took the test that's says Yes+ if it's positive and NO- if it's negative) I know I should be happy but I still can't believe it!

Low ovarian reserve, 5 failed ivf cycles aged 39 - BFP success with DHEA and ubiquinol

Posting this to give hope to others with a low ovarian reserve, hoping to get pregnant. It was here i discovered the possibilities of combining DHEA and ubiquinol after 5 failed ivf cycles. A year after i had my son (a natural conception) i was diagnosed as having a very low ovarian reserve at 38. I had the egg count of a 45 year old and my mother had gone through menapause at 43. I needed some help getting pregnant again. I started short cycles of ivf. First cycle was cancelled as i just grew one big folly. Gutting. 2nd cycle was filled with hope, 4 eggs retrieved and 2 beautiful blastocysts. I lost them both at 10 weeks and 8 weeks. It was as if they just ran out of energy and stopped growing. Even more gutting was that the 2nd blastocyst was tested for genetic issues and we'd been told it was a 95% perfect egg. This one didnt even grow into a fetal pole. 2 more cycles came and went one cancelled again and another we couldnt even start as my hormones never baselined. Then someone told me about improving egg quality through various ways. One was to take hormone supplements. My doctor suggested we try DHEA - 25 mg 3 xdaily. I did some more research and found a post here by a lady who got pregnant naturally at 43 with all sorts of homonal issues and swore by a combination of DHEA and ubiquinol. So i started taking ubiquinol too - 600mg first in the gel capsule form and then in liquid form as i was told you absorb more through the membranes of your mouth with the liquid spray than when you ingest it. I also gave up alcohol nearly altogether even tho id been told a glass every other day would be ok, as i read that any more than 4 units of alcohol a week reduces your chances of conception and implantation. Really hard for me as i love booze and it helped a lot with the stress of it all. Id been told that to see the results we'd need to wait 3 months for the DHEA to take effect. Of course i went head anyway with another cycle as by now i was 39 and was desperate. Plus the ivf clinics reckon its just a numbers game. They retrieved 6 eggs and we got 1 blastocyst using the long ivf cycle. Not nearly as good quality as the first 2 that i lost. It didnt even implant. Totally gutted. The 7th cycle was my last go as far as i was concerned IVF had impacted my life in everyway possible - from how i felt about my body to my relationshio with my partner and son, as well as stalling my career and quite frankly i was depressed and over it. By now i was 4 months into DHEA and ubiquinol, i had experienced heart flutters early on but it passed as my body got used to it all, by the 3rd month i realised i had much darker thicker facial hair and on my feet! But that nothing a few creams didnt sort out. They collected 4 eggs and we got 2 blastocysts - and in their opinion not as good quality as the 2 id lost. So we just went ahead with a fresh transfer and froze the other one. I wasnt hopeful. Well blow me down BFP result, stong growth and heart beat at 7 weeks, another at 10 weeks and a beautiful scan at 12 weeks showing everything was healthy and normal. Im now 25 weeks pregnant today, its a girl and we feel truely blessed. Im convinced it was the DHEA and ubiquinol combo and opting out of alcohol. And by the way as soon as i stopped taking DHEA and ubiquinol all the dark thick hair fell out and im back to normal. Good luck to you all. This worked for me, i hope it does for anyone out there in a similar position. Im not a doctor so please dont take this advice as professional. Just sharing my story in the hope of giving hope to others.

Infertility and surprises

We started trying to get pregnant in fall 2007 (I was 25). By 2011, after years of trying and a handful of miscarriages, the final straw was being 12/13 weeks and hearing there is no heartbeat. I decided was time to try fertility treatments. I had no clue what this entailed. Since our insurance doesn't cover anything related to fertility we started with medicated/timed ovulation. Then switched to IUIs. After no luck we made the decision to do IVF. First fresh transfer resulted in a healthy baby boy. After being told by my nurse to try on our own because sometimes our bodies are capable, they could maybe need a jumpstart, I got pregnant but had a chemical pregnancy. Immediately following that loss I went ahead and did a FET which gave us our second son. When he was 4 months old I was still exclusively breastfeeding and didn't have a period yet. I went in for a 12w post partum check up at my birth center to be told I was pregnant! On our own! My third son came on his due date in December 2015. Knowing we wanted 4 kids we decided to try on our own for about 6 months and had no luck. After speaking to a new doc at our center (my previous RE left the practice) we decided to do genetic testing on my embryos. Out of 10 'good' embryos only 4 came back 'normal'. We went ahead and did a FET (the first frostie didn't make the thaw, so we thawed a second) and after a positive test and two good betas my numbers dropped and I had a miscarriage. I was very discouraged and beyond sad over this loss. This embryo was healthy and perfect. I felt the need to try on our own during the month or two between cycles. I ovulated as usual following the miscarriage and then started spotting a little bit brown on the day my period was due but then it stopped. My nurse said that's normal after a failed FET so we went ahead and scheduled my next FET for September. I was supposed to start meds this week but surprisingly enough I took a pregnancy test and got a BFP! I know it's still early, and in the infertility journey this is on my step 1. But it's an amazing direction to be going in!

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. To not have this story too long, I went through testing and trying this and that over the next few years - tried all the things. Seriously, all of it.

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.
