IVF Journey

Hi everyone

My name is Terri and I’m 31. Me and my Fiancé have been ttc for just over two years with no success of pregnancy. So in January 2017 we decided to both get checked out. So after a number of blood tests turns out that I have a low AMH level for my age. My fiancé test came back fine. Whilst I lost the weight I needed to get my bmi under 30 I was doing the clomid cycle for a couple of months. Turned out that the days of egg release was delayed (day 17 month 1, day 19 month 2) and I wasn’t ovulating either. So our only option now was ivf. So started the ivf treatment on the 21st of October. Had my egg collection on the 6th of November where they managed to collect 7 eggs. They managed to fertilise 4 of them and the embryo transfer is the 11th of November. Feeling excited and little nervous

  • Good luck! I had my EC yesterday and am currently waiting for the call to find out if any have fertilised...

  • Wishing you luck. It’s an agonising wait. Always here to talk if you need a chat and thank you xx

  • 7 fertilised! So relieved!

  • That’s amazing bet you are so relieved. How many eggs did they manage to get from the EC. When’s the ET? We’re going to be very close in cycles xx

  • We had 9 eggs but they were unable to tell us at the time how many were mature enough for fertilisation. When they called this morning they said the did ICSI on all 9 and the two that aren’t fertilised are ‘doing something’ so they’ll check them again. Depending on how many make it to Sunday, ET will be on day 3 (Sunday) or day 5 (Tuesday), so very close!
