Any success stories if you only end up with one embryo after

Postby Kbabygirls » Sat Dec 12, 2015 10:59 pm

So this is my first and probably only ivf cycle. I'm 40. My husband has a vasectomy. They had to cut into both of his testicles and cut out a few pieces of tissue to get the sperm. He will never do that again and I don't blame him. The got 11 eggs out of me...only 4 were mature and none fertilized. They tried to mature the rest and 2 did mature of which one fertilized. At this point we're just praying for a normal zygote that makes it to blastocyst stage. Anyway if that does happen then we have our one and only miracle. I'm looking for anyone with a success story in a similar situation with only one embryo. Thanks.

Hi K- While I had more than 1 embryo, I can honestly say it only takes 1! I have seen several girls on the IVF boards with 1 embryo and a successful pregnancy. If you think about it, you can have 50 embryos and no baby or 1 embryo and a baby. You just need 1 to stick. Good luck!!!

If anything is inspiration for you maybe this will be. So you know how the doctor told me only one of 11 eggs fertilized. I've been praying all week for God to give the miracle of life to our one on only chance for this child that is genetically ours. I was praying the clinic did not call each day. Doctor said he would call Thursday. I wondered about that cuz Wednesday was 5 days after the 2 eggs they matured in the lab got fertilized. Anyway they did call today, Wednesday, with good news...I thought my little zygote made it and is now an embryo...that was true but it was 2 not 1. I have 2 frozen embryos!!!!! Anything is possible with God!

I am happy to report that my husband and I are currently in the 1 fertilized embryo boat. We actually only has d ONE mature follicle and made a huge gamble in chasing it. But here we are a few weeks later!! Beta #1 was 127 on 11dp3dt and 225 on 13dp3dt. So we are pregnant with our little miracle embie. I have an u/s on 1/11 at exactly 6 weeks. Hoping to see a nice sac! I was paranoid the first time with DD and even more so now. But right now we are very very grateful and happy. :)
Me: 36. DH: 38
TTC #2 since Sept 2013
Low AMH, hypothyroid, (?) pcos/insulin resistance

DD #1: born 2/7/12 natural cycle following 4 yrs TTC and 1 cycle femara

This time: 6 failed clomid cycles. Went straight to IVF due to age and DOR.
IVF #1: December 2015. Agonist/antagonist. 1 mature follie after 12 days of stim. Went for it - transferred 3 day embryo on 12/17/15. Fx, first beta 12/28!
