IVF/ICSI PGD BFP OTD!

Ok, I admit it, I just wanted to put as many acronyms as I could in one title! But it’s true, our one little embryo which was tested as “viable”, seems to have stuck. Two positive tests this morning. For those who don’t know me, this is round three of IVF and I have also had two early miscarriages of natural pregnancies. My hubbie has a balanced chromosome translocation which causes miscarriage. This embryo also carries the balanced chromosome translocation but because it’s balanced not unbalanced, it should not cause miscarriage. Obviously lots of things can still go wrong (and with my history, I have learned to expect things to go wrong), but we feel like we are knocking hurdles down one by one. Next hurdle, the 8 week scan. I’m already convinced we will be scanned and nothing will be there, but from this forum I know it’s a normal fear. Please keep your fingers crossed for me... I’m not sure I’ve got it in me to face another miscarriage!

Wow well congrats on the BFP. Although I totally get why it must feel like a double edged sword but please try to be positive - laugh - and be happy. The embryo will only thrive on that feeling. I will be keeping everything crossed for you that this sticks! Wishing you much love, hope and all the baby feels 🤞🏻🌈🍀🙏🏻💕💕💕 xxxx

Imagine ! I’ve contacted clinic to tell them result apparently I will have one in 2 weeks to check position etc and then one at 7-9 weeks I don’t know if that’s right as this is all knew to me xxxx

Sounds good. I think we just get one at 8 weeks, but I haven’t rung them yet.

Delighted for you!! Woohoo! Are you going to have an HCG blood test today too? That should give you a little peace of mind, 8 weeks is a very long wait!

So happy for you guys xxx

No my clinic don’t offer blood tests, but to be honest, I know that tests can show everything is fine until the day it’s not, so I don’t think it would reassure me much. On my first miscarriage I still got positive pregnancy tests until two weeks after, so I am just going to hang in there for the scan. Technically am four weeks pregnant already so it’s not an 8 week wait xx

Woohoo! Congratulations! Im also feeling very cautious & not getting my hopes up but let's hope we have sticky ones! 🤞xxx

I am so very happy for you. Will keep fingers crossed for you for your 8 weeks scan. As you said a hurdle at a time. Anxiety is the name of the game but a good support system will help you through it.
