I had 2 IVF cycles using my own eggs. Both were mc's. I had 1 failed donor egg fresh cycle and a FET. I got pregnant with my FET and that resulted in my daughter. I also had 3 failed IUI's before the IVF's. oh and opf course a few surgeries in between for polyps etc...I always hoped to be a mom and tried to stay positive..and I know how hard it is. It can and will happen and you will get your take home baby..just beleive it!!!!!!

I don't want to vote either cause I am only 9 1/2 weeks, but this was my 4th
IVF attempt. The first 3 were with my own eggs and all were fresh cycles, none of which resulted in a pregnancy. The fourth was with donor eggs and worked.

I'm only 4 weeks into this pregnancy, so I don't know yet if it will stick, but it's my first IVF cycle.
