It's been a while but wanted to say hi again x

Hello everyone,

I hope you have all had a good Friday, the weekend is finally here!

Some of you may remember me from back at the start of the year when I had my failed 1st icsi attempt, and unfortunately lost out on my free frozen transfer as we had none to freeze.

So I took a break away as I needed to save 5k to go through another round.

For all the new people on here I have mild pcos and my partner has low sperm count and his mobility is under 1%.

So we have been saving away which has proved a lot harder than we thought but.........

this week I've found out that when my great grandad passed away he left all the grandchildren 12k each which was put into shares, I've now been made aware of this and it turns out that one of the shares looks like if I was to sell it now I'd get back a huge amount which will fund my next round of icsi.

So cut a long story short I've contacted the fertility clinic and it looks like I will be going for my second round in January so giving them my Nov period!!!

In the mean time whilst I've been saving they have had me on metformin to try and get me ovulating and my period cycles have gone from 50 day cycles bk to 30!!! Which is amazing, I'm having my day 21 bloods done next month to tell if I'm ovulating or not (fingers crossed I am) So thing are finally looking up for me and I can get all excited again.

Just want to pass on my happy news and say never give up on your dreams 💕 xxxx

Awww that's so amazing Laura3101 a lovely little girl, I'm really hoping it's second time lucky for us too. We're your embryos a lot strong the second time round? Xxxx

Yeah they were! The first round grade was a 4cb that didn't work & this one that worked was a 5ba so near top grade. My drugs were pretty much the same just a slight increase in menopur & they added daily clexane injections too. We also had an embryo to freeze this time too! Xx

Reply

Oh that's amazing, ours weren't strong enough to take to day 5 to get the grades like you, but that's such good news for you, my OH sperm mobility are so low that I worry it's not going to be great again xxx

Reply

My partners wasn't high really either, I can't remember the exact figures now but it came in the sub fertility group which is when its less than 4%. It's all about the Icsi and what they chose so fingers crossed they will get the best ones out for you 😊 xx

Not too bad thank you. Hopefully going to be starting round 3 next month 😬.

We had a really poor response in round 2 and no embyro to transfer, so taken 6 months off and hoping that next time will be better.

Fingers crossed we both get our happy ending next cycle xx

I'm 5 weeks ( I think ) and like an utter lunatic. Still in shock it happened naturally after all these years. I check my underwear about 20 times a day. Been here twice before, but just trying to savour the moment too. X

Hahaha check your underwear 20times!! Bless your cottons. Well you totally deserve it, and I'm so happy for you that it has happened naturally and didn't have to put your body thought more ivf. You going to pay for an early scan or just wait till 12 was? Xxx

Reply

Thanks Emma Jane that's so lovely of you to say. I know in blessed to have gotten this far naturally for sure. My Clinic told me to tell my gp straight away and they ll book me in for an early scan at 7 weeks as I have had a previous ectopic so they should do that for me as a precaution. I have put off telling my gp as I was afraid I was just gonna start bleeding so what was the point but I'll go in tomorrow. Wonder do 'normal' women feel like this when they find out they are pregers! 😂 X

Reply

Unfortunately normal women who get pregnant don't have to go through the ivf cycle which makes you aware of the risks, where as we get made of every risk going so you are bound to be scared/worried about every pain or spotting etc. I'm so sorry to hear you had an ectopic which is also bound to make you worried, but definitely book in with your GP so you can have the early scan and have the support. Pregnancy is never a relaxing thing until the baby has been born I think. But I'm sure everything will be fine for you and I hope you go on to have a happy and healthy pregnancy Hun xxx
