Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

Secondary infertility - BFP after 2 years by IVF !!

I conceived DS naturally 8 years ago after 2 months of trying. I never imagine having difficulty with conceiving the second time around. After 1 year of trying, I decided to visit an RE where I found out my DH had morphology issue (2%). The RE prescribed vitamins to improve sperm quality and suggested for him to quit smoking. Couple of months of BFNs later, I decided on IUI. After two failed IUIs within a span of 6 months, my DH pushed for me to go for IVF. I agreed to pursue IVF just after turning 35 years old.

I had a short protocol with low dosage. Other than frequent visits to the RE, the IVF process was relatively easy for me. I couldn't do a fresh transfer hence I had 8 embryos frozen 3 days after egg retrieval. Two cycles later, I had a natural frozen embryo transfer with 2 embryos as I do ovulate regularly. No bed rest after transfer but I took time off from work and took it easy for 3 days. 12 days post 3 day transfer I got my BFP. I didn't test earlier than that as my RE advised against it.

I am now cautiously happy but relieved that I am able to get pregnant at least. I am now 7 weeks along and haven't gone to see my RE for a scan. I will know soon if I am carrying a singleton or otherwise.

Don't lose hope even though the journey seems long and bleak. Cry when you need to but pick yourself up and keep moving forward.
