Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
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.
