I realise, if all had gone well, you might already have had your ER and fertilisation. Still
I wanted to say that don't worry about the count. What matters is the quality of eggs / embryos, no #. Hope you have some great embies growing at the moment.

Best wishes


Thank you and wish you good luck too! I am writing my update below.

One of the things that will really help the procedure is you eating healthily. It is really important to eat food that consists of the right nutrients. Other than that I used to do yoga to release by stress. Best of luck! Do keep us posted.


Thank you Hannah! I am trying to not find excuses and eat healthy though this process :). I have not been doing much stretching but i want to get into yoga to destress through this process. I hope things will start looking up for you too!!

[quote="babydaffodils"]Here is my update everyone--

Today is day 10 of stim and is going to be the trigger day, so my egg retrieval will on on June 4th!
So far, I have about 10 follicles and the biggest ones are 18-19 mm and others are around 15 mm. My estrogen level is around 2000. Hoping everything goes well on Monday and bracing for the injection tonight!

I will keep you posted next week on how everything goes..[/quote
Hello everyone,
thank you for all your lovely wishes and here is my update. I had 10 mature eggs, 9 fertilized, 7 made it; one fresh embryo was transferred at 5d and 6 embryos are frozen. Now it is a waiting game!
I feel fine, i was a little crampy after the egg retrieval but not too bad. The progesterone injections do suck but I have started using heat pad since I am feel my skin becoming hard at the injection site.
Any other suggestions for the progesterone injections are welcome!

Thank you for all your support and love <3

Fingers crossed for your 2ww :bd: For me this was the most difficult of all. As for the injectibles. Ice pack before, heating pad after. Also moving the muscles after helps. It also could be a massage or going up/down stairs. Good luck!

They ended up letting my egg go to day 6 and they said it was beautiful, so they froze it on Tuesday morning. Transfer is in about 6-8 weeks :)

Good luck babydaffodiles!

Hey dear! Hope so you are doing good. I just read your post and I'm really felt sorry to know about your situation. It's really heartbreaking. People are so dangerous. But don't worry. Such things are temporary. You just keep focussing on your goals. I'm glad to know that you are having IVF. I have also adopted a baby through IVF. I had some complication while conceiving. I was diagnosed with PCOS. Then I went for IVF. And it helped me and now I have a beautiful baby. I hope it will be fruitful for you too. Just be positive and hopeful. Everything will be fine

Hello everyone,
Thank you for your messages. I unfortunately got a BFN from my first IVF transfer :(. It really is disheartening and am feeling quite low. We do have 6 good quality frozen embryos and the doctor has certainly suggested moving forward with FET.

I am just thinking of taking some time off as it has been draining physically and emotionally.

Thanks for your constant support and hugs to everyone going through all this craziness. May there be light at the end of the tunnel!

Hi there, MCs are very much heartwrenching. It breaks a person and makes the life of that person very much difficult. I know this feeling because I have been through this. I hope you remain strong. This would make your life very much happy.

Hello, good luck with your IVF. I trust everything goes easily. A ton of ladies settles another IVF check with your specialists if that will be advantageous. In any case, I prescribe you to go for surrogacy One of the things that will truly help the technique is you eating soundly. It is extremely vital to eat sustenance that comprises the correct supplements. Good luck! Do update us as often as possible.

You have been through a lot. It seems crazy what that doctor did. I wish you didn't have to go through this. However, you're a very strong woman. Stay the same. I wish you all the best with your IVF. Go get your happiness! :)

God love you poor thing :hugs: I'm sorry your 1st round didn't work. What did your dr say? You're doing so right you're taking the break. This is important to be at right emotional state to proceed with treatments. I sometimes felt I had to coach people in my life how to treat me. I was not a case to fix. Lust a person in a very difficult time. I know treatments failures can be frustrating and exhausting. I am not sure where you're located. But hope you have some supportive people by your side. And that you trust your clinic. And soon you'll get ready to continue treatments. Wishing you the best!!
