Well after 6 years of trying, 2 miscarriages and unexplained infertility we finally got our ivf appointment in may. My bloods came back great, the nurse told me it should be quick and create plenty of eggs. Well this didn't happen only one ovary responded and injections carried on a week and a half longer than planned. We had our egg collection on the 11th July (a day before our wedding anniversary and a year after our last miscarriage) I was in agony, I was bleeding horrifically and couldn't walk then they told us they only got 2 eggs. I didn't feel even slightly positive. They had to do icsi as hubby's swimmers were having a bad day. On the Tuesday we got the phone call both eggs had fertilised and yo go back Thursday for transfer. We were so excited Thursday morning but then hubby got a call one egg had failed and the other wasn't lookin great, we convinced ourselves it was over. They wanted to see if it would make it to blastocyst so had to wait till Saturday. When we finally got in for transfer the embryologist wasn't too hopeful but said it could develop really quick once back inside. Well 10 days later we got our bloods and we're so shocked we got positive. 5 weeks 6 days I started to bleed we were devastated but 2 days later we got a scan and saw the heartbeat thumping away, the bleeding lasted 2 and a half weeks but I was scanned for 3 weeks and it was growing perfectly. I had my 12 week scan booked in for today (Friday) and we were excited but very anxious. Yesterday morning I woke up around 3 absolutely soaking wet I ran to the bathroom but there was no blood I didn't have a clue what it was so I thought have a wee and get back to sleep the n my worst nightmare I lost a huge clot and so much blood. That was it I knew it was over, I phoned the maternity unit and they said phone back after 8 and try and get a scan, I couldn't wait that long the blood was getting heavier so we went to a n e. The earliest scan was 4pm so after the longest day of our lives we got there for the scan. I was ready for the news I couldn't look at the screen I lay lookin at the light on the ceiling holding my breath so I didn't cry and then a happy voice speaks up there's your baby it's absolutely fine 😊 it was dancing around the screen all over the place, heart beating away and measured 4 days longer than we actually thought we should be. We still have our scan for today so we get to see it all again. Just want to say to everyone I really wish you the best of luck with your journeys and miracles really do happen xxx
