Going for 2nd baby after successful IVF!

Postby AmazinglyAmy » Sat Jul 09, 2016 8:02 pm

Hello everyone! These boards were so important to me when I first started TTC. I tried for a year before learning my endometriosis had blocked both of my tubes completely, making it impossible for me to conceive on my own :cry:

We did an IVF cycle October 2014, implanted 2 and both stuck initially but we lost one a little before 8 weeks. Our wonderful son was born June 2015 !

He is now almost 13 months and I met with our fertility specialist about going for the next transfer. I have 3 frozen embryos and we are looking at another fall transfer. We have to decide, do we want to transfer 1 or 2?

Anyone have twins after a single? I would LOVE twins but can we handle it? Any words of wisdom/caution?

Me: 29, endometriosis, both tubes blocked
DH: 27, low sperm count
Together 12 years
TTC 13 months
IVF cycle #1
Retrieval 10/1 - 12 eggs retrieved, 8 fertilized.
5 Day transfer 10/6 - 2 5AA blasts transfered, 3 4AB x2,4BB, frozen
10/15 Beta results in
BFP! Hcg 339! Stick and grow!
10/23 HCG 5,345
First u/s 11/3- Two sacs and two little heartbeats! Twins!
2nd u/s 11/17- Baby A- HB163 measuring on target, Baby B-Angel in heaven

Hey Amy - I am doing the same thing! As Danaa mentioned, there is another board that we're on for summer IVF cycles. I have my transfer next week, so I don't have a positive story to share (yet!! Fx!) but I've been searching the internet like a fiend for similar stories and found some good ones last night. Hopefully I'll have one to share soon. Good luck to you and join us on the other thread!

Meant to say that I didn't have twins after a single...we're actually doing the opposite. Trying for our single frozen baby after twins from a successful fresh cycle in Oct. 2013. I do have a friend who has a singleton and then had twins. Her oldest was 3 when she got pregnant though so she was older than your son. I'm sure having 3, 2 and under, will be a little rough but it's been done before! Good luck!
