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.

Here is my journey!

2005-2007:  2 complete years of 'unexplained infertility'
   2006: remove ovarian cyst, I am left with one working ovary
   2006/2007: 5 IUI Clomid then Gonal: BFN
   2007 dec: IVF (2 embryos transferred, no frozen one) - BFP... chemical :-(
no more treatments after that, too expensive
but I finally started to get pregnant naturally!
Halas 2 more miscarriages :-(

Aug 2009: BFP (at 40 - 4 years after we started our baby journey): my baby boy is now 16 months old
...
Aug 2011: BFP (at 42) - not planned!!! An accident, a one time thing... shocked! 9 weeks pregnant.

I am now a true believer that everything can happen, never loose (all) hope!
Good luck to all!!

I got pregnant naturally, had a miscarriage.
Tried 3 rounds of IUI with no success.
Because of my "advanced" maternal age (HA!) we are using an egg donor.
Transferred 2 fresh blastocysts on 9/20.
Pregnancy test will be 9/30.
Good luck and prayers for everyone!!

Wow, all of these stories are amazing!  It is amazing what struggles we have endured.  Our journeys are each unique and none are without hearthache and pain. Our tears have been many, it seems.   I am so glad we have each other to lean on and to help pull us through.  

Keep the stories coming ladies!!!!!
