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. xx

Sometimes a good cry is so needed! Then you bounce back. Thank you for reminding those of us reading your testimony that remaining hopeful is important. Keeping pushing forward to that BFP and it will happen!
