BFP Stories

Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP with first IVF/ICSI (It's Twins!)

Hi Ladies,
Our story is a lot more mundane than most, but I might as well add it too!

TTC 7 years, finally had a laparoscopy last year (when I realised time really *was* ticking away!) and found lots of adhesions and non-repairable tubes which were removed, meaning our only hope was IVF. I have a history of immune disease and have had chronic hypertension since I had a stroke at 18.
We discovered DH had very poor sperm count and motility, so started him on a range of vitamin supplements.

First IVF w/ICSI in March:
Me 33, DH 36
Standard down regulation - .10mg of Lucrin daily. I ended up taking this for over a month because I had a large ovarian cyst that just wouldn't go away.
Stims: 225mg Puregon, plus the .10mg of Lucrin for 14 days
Result: Retrieved 14 follicles, 12 eggs fertilised, 6 made it to transfer. The two best 4-cells were transferred, the other 4 frozen.
LPS: 8% Crinone twice daily for 13 days.
2WW: Sucks! But we got a BFP! My progesterone was 220 at my first blood test, 4 days later it was 250. We recently discovered it's twins - totally unexpected. I'm 9wks pregnant.

Hope this is either helpful or vaguely interesting, and best of luck to all of you!
