There's hope for everyone

Hi Everyone, I am 40, this was my second round of IVF, I only had 2 follicles, and they only retrieved one egg on 18 Nov, I cried all the way home, and all my sister kept reminding me was it only takes one so there is hope but it fertilised and I had a transfer on day 2, it was a 4 cell grade 1-2 embryo. I did my blue clear this morning and it was a BFP. As all my friends and family kept reminding me it only takes one. Lots of baby dust to everyone.xx

He was told the take well man for 3 months and we need to go back in January. I really hope they work. Oh what a wait we been through a lot this year I'm glad 2013 is nearly over. Xxxxxx

  • Hi All,

    Many thanks for all your wishes, and I sincerely wish you all the best in your journeys. and wait to hear about your BFPs. xx

  • Congratulations on your amazing news.. Gives me hope xx

  • Many congratulations to you. That's fab news. We are going for icsi again next year. I've either got low reserves or very sluggish at producing eggs. I had four foliciles and produced ten eggs six of which were crap. I'll be on pretty much the highest stimulating drug from the start. I'm going to try to take some of your positive vibes with me next year. Congratulations again. Very exciting 2014 for you. :-)

  • Wishing u both the very best. Lots oh baby dust. X

    Ps I drank about a litre a day of pineapple juice a day , had read somewhere it helps also ate Brazil nuts for same reason , don't know if it helped, but I felt I was doing something positive. Xx
