Interested in YOUR Story!

Ok Ladies.... I was just sitting here thinking.... Please post how many cycles of IUI, IVF, FET you did before receiving your BFP.  Also, if your turned to donor eggs/embryos how many cycles.... I think it would help others and me that are still struggling to keep the Faith!

Can't wait to see your stories!!!!

3 failed IVFs with my own eggs.
BFP with DE fresh cycle. Lost my twins at 21 weeks due to the high risk associated with multiple gestation. No other reason (so for those who hope for twins, don't forget it comes with a big risk).
Chemical pregnancy with DE FET.
BFP with second and very last (no more embryos) DE FET. I now have the most beautiful daughter in the world.

It is possible, please keep the faith. Having gone through a failed DE FET, I know it's very difficult to think the next time will work. But I am living proof that it happens! All it takes is one good embryo. Yours is out there and just waiting to get inside your uterus!!

Hugs to you.

Thanks Kris for sharing your story!  I thought it was a good idea too.  That way, we can all see this isn't always an easy, fast track to getting pregnant.  I hope others share their stories too.  It gives me hope that I may actually hold a lil one or one's in my arms some day!

Hugs!!

What a great thread! It's amazing to read all these stories of perseverance. My story:
Got pregnant very easily and naturally with my now 4 year old son. Have been trying to get pregnant with baby #2 since late aug/early sept 2009.

18 mos trying on our own - never a bfp even with positive OPKs and EWCM every month - bding timing seems to be perfect.
(1 yr into trying had a lap surgery which showed a few adhesions from my csection scar. OB cleaned it up and said he saw no reason why i couldn't get pregnant. Tubes open and clear as well. Uterus looked great.) DH's sperm looked good.

Jan 2010 - went see my first RE and got testing and another dye test. All looked good

Feb 2010 - first IUI with clomid. BFN

April 2010 - 2nd IUI with injectables BFN
(found out DH's sperm morphology was really low (count and motility were fine) during these IUI's which is weird because the first sperm analysis showed everything looked great) Maybe stress?

May 2010 - first IVF - BFP but miscarried at 7 weeks due to Trisomy 9

July 1 2010 - DNC

August 2010 - found uterine scarring due to DNC. 2 hysteroscopies and time off for healing

Nov 2010 - Greenlight to conceive

Dec 2010 - FET - bfn

Feb 2011 - 2nd fresh IVF - BFN
time off to look into immunological issues and treatment

August 2011 - 2nd FET - BFN

Sept 2011 - tried naturally - BFN

Oct 2011 - IUI with clomid cycle - don't have a lot of hope given previous IUI failures and IVF failures but feel like it gives me a little bit more of a chance than natural and stranger things have happened to other women right?  (DH did another sperm analysis to check morphology. Will get results soon. Praying they are good so we can move forward with an IUI without worry that sperm is not at the % that it needs to be for success)
If this cycle is a bfn - i may take the holidays off and do 1 more IVF in january before looking to adoption or surrogacy.

HI there,

Just catching up on the boards...

I did 9 IUI cycles with BFN every time.
Finally switched to IVF using DE and got a BFP on my first try (I have never felt so lucky!).

Thanks for asking! Had my first OB scan on Thursday and they said it looks like both eggs are developing at this point and the doc said he saw a "flutter" in both. He said it's really early to try to find a heartbeat. He estimated that I was 6 weeks. I go back next week for another scan to see if they are both still growing!

I don't know why she seems so negative like it's not a good pregnancy...  I even call to ask for a 4th beta and she said no what for just to wait till Tuesday...  I am just getting over the OHSS Thank to God cuz OMG it's so painful :(...

Great news! They have confirmed a pregnancy! I have been back for 3 susequent blood tests, the last one being yesterday to check the Beta, Estrogen, and Progesterone levels. They called and said all levels look good and have scheduled me for an ultrasound for Thursday! I am so thankful to get this far! At least now all the shots, pills, etc...are working toward a goal. Thanks for everyone's thoughts and prayers!

Oh, how wonderful it would be to hear my baby breath!  That, my friend, is why I cannot give up.  I have wanted to give up so many times!  My heart is pretty much broken.... but, I keep putting duct tape on it, to hold it together, and try again.  But, Oh to hear my baby breath with me!  What a glorious day that will be!!!!  Hugs to you my friend!  Please let me know when you are going to be doing another transfer, ok?

Sisi,  I just want us all to share our triumphs and our heartaches.  Sometimes, we just get so lost in our own pain, it is just nice to see how others have overcame, and kept moving foward.  I am so glad you shared your journey so far, it will inspire others to keep doing the same... of that I am so sure.  
I think sometimes, we forget that others have went throught as much as, if not more then us on there journey's to motherhood.  I do believe you and I will get there!!!!! WE WILL!!!
I am glad we will be there for each other to lean on during our 2ww!!!  What a blessing! :)

Hi good evening...

Have a question; I'm 10dp3dt and I took a HPT today and to me it looks positive...  I just post it...  I took 1 yesterday and it was negative...  You think it's a BFP??  

I went to my RE today cuz this pain in my tummy has not gone away and RE says I have OHSS...  My beta is due on 9/30/11 but he said we are gonna cheat and do one today so I'll get that call tomorrow...  

Enough about me how have you been??
