I've been hesitant to post this, for a couple of resons. First, this is only my second post and second, I know that I am in a very privileged position to be saying that my IVF has been successful and didn't want anyone to get upset by my posting this ❤ I just wanted to put this out there, to give hope to anyone who might want to read this.
I was told in October I have a low AMH level of 3.4 and about a 10% chance of IVF medication working. Devastated by this set back, I came here and posted asking for help and advice, which I got & am to this day ever so thankful for. I spoke to my best friends who kept me sane, I started going to Acupuncture - which helped me relax, I stopped drinking (as someone who loves a glass of wine,I'm not going to lie this was a big thing - even though I realised loads of other women had already done this!) and swapped my beloved coffee for decaff.
I was rejected for first cycle in December, as the clinic closes for deep clean. January I was accepted. Drugs worked, follicles grew & they got 14 eggs come egg collection day.
Three of these made it to blastocyst, one was popped back in & two in to the freezer. I'm now almost 8 weeks pregnant.
I had some very hard days during the process and the wait leading up to it, anyone who goes through this treatment is a tough cookie in my opinion. It's mentally & emotionally one of the toughest things that a woman can be faced with I think and I massivley admire every single last one of us for going through it. To those who are yet to begin or continue to go through it, as Winston Churchill once said - Success is not final, failure is not fatal, it is the courage to continue that counts ❤❤ please be kind to yourselves & try to keep believing even when it seems all hope it lost.
I hope that this brings a light in to someone's life at a time when a person might really need a positive story. It can happen, even when they say that it's not likely to, so please don't give up hope.
I'm aware that I'm still very early stages of pregnancy & have a long journey ahead of me before things are safe, but I wanted to share this and to say thank you to those of you who posted to support me in my hour of need. I will be forever grateful xxx
