Firstly, I'm so sorry if you don't need to see this today - please skip by.

Secondly, after 4 failed FETs and 1 failed fresh transfer, yesterday I had the call from my nurse to say that this transfer has worked. I'm actually pregnant. I have a BFP!! I didn't test at home because after the trauma of so many negative tests, I just couldn't bring myself to, so I waited for the call - it was a long day. There were a lot of tears.

I'm so grateful to you all who have got me through the past 2 years of IVF (and 3 years TTC before that). The heartache we go through with every single step of this is enough to break most people, but we carry on because ultimately we know what we want and we'll do anything to get it.

It's incredibly early days and I'm 100% aware that this could be taken away at any moment, but for now I'm enjoying the feeling of knowing that our perseverance paid off!

Wishing you all a wonderful, sunny Friday! xxxx

Thank you! And so much luck for your FET xx

Fantastic news!! 🎉 I am so pleased for you Millbanks, you deserve this so much and you should enjoy every moment. Massive congratulations to you! 😊

Could you remind me what changes you made this time please lovely and did you do anything different during the 2ww wait or changes to diet, supplements etc anything like that this time? Xx

Thank you - that's so kind!Yes!! So we ended up doing another cycle then testing all the embryos, we were incredibly lucky to have 6 of the 8 come back normal. I also had all my immunology panel done and it did show raised NK cells in the blood. I had an ERA test done in December too which showed I needed 24 extra hours of progesterone. So I think all of those combined were the key. I think sometimes it's worth taking the time to investigate before using anymore precious embryos. Where are you at right now? xx

Thank you, that is so helpful!

We are waiting for our follow up appointment on Tuesday, so getting my list together! Trying to think of all the things I should be asking and trying to get every tip I possibly can! It has been such a long, anxious wait since our failed 3rd transfer in June. But I am looking forward to the prospect of getting a new plan in place. I keep thinking do I need to change diet or add more supplements, maybe I am overthinking it all, I have a tendency to overthink at the best of times!

You must be over the moon. It is lovely to see you get your positive result. It gives us all hope, thank you for sharing your happy news and best of luck for a healthy pregnancy 😊 xx

Any time my lovely - my inbox is always open too.In terms of supplements I actually cut back this time. I just felt like I was taking so many and not really sure if they were doing anything!!

What I did take was:

methylfolate 400iu (1 a day) / terra nova pregnancy multi vitamin (1 a day) / vitamin D spray 3000iu (1 a day).

Then everything else that the clinic prescribed (cyclogest x 3 / lubion x 2 / inhixa x 1 / prednisolone x 20mg / progynova x 12mg / aspirin 75mg)

So I was rattling pretty much!

One thing I did have every day was a smoothie of watermelon, ginger and beetroot - there was a study to show that it helped with implantation (google it) but I would be amazed if this had any affect - much more likely the ERA / PGS / Steroids!! But because it's been so hot it was lovely as I froze all the ingredients xx

Thank you lovely! 😊 I will definitely message for advice if you don't mind, will see what the doctor says Tuesday! Will be interesting to see if she changes my meds, the last 2 rounds she kept the same down reg and stims. I hope I can have some tweaks next time to feel like we are doing something differently and of course perhaps some more investigative tests as well. I find it all very confusing and Google is a minefield of information! Will definitely be looking at that smoothie, it sounds delicious! Xx

Absolutely!! Please do! And good luck with your appointment xxx

Thank you! 😊 xx

Thank you! Yes I said to myself absolutely no more transfers until we’ve looked in to as much as we can. It’s just too heartbreaking to keep ploughing through… hope all is well with you! Xx

Congrats!😁

Thank you so much! Everything crossed for your eggies xx

Thank you! Going in tomorrow morning to find out how they are doing 🤞

Excellent. I hope you were able to enjoy your birthday too xx

I was doing some research while waiting for my results and I came across this - cochrane.org/CD013226/MENST... sure if it might be something you could look in to, but it was my next step xxx

Congrats! This has made my day and you so deserve this! You have always been so supportive to others on here even though you have not had it easy. I wish you all the best with your pregnancy lovely and enjoy this day as it’s a very special moment xxx

Millbanks in reply to Jonesy84

Thank you - that's so sweet of you to say ❤️Yea it's been a hell of a road for sure! But worth it all to have this feeling for a bit.

How are you doing? I hadn't seen any updates since your last post so hoping all well xx

Jonesy84 profile image
Jonesy84 in reply to Millbanks

Absolutely and I am so glad this one stuck or did you have more than one transferred?Yes me and bubs are doing well. Nearly 28 weeks now so time is flying! Xx

Wow!! It goes so fast!! Amazing!Yes just the one this time as it was PGS ;) xx

Jonesy84 profile image
Jonesy84 in reply to Millbanks

Amazing! Well I will keep an eye out for any updates. I am guessing you will have a 6 week scan so try and stay sane till then and no google😂 xx

Oh Millbanks, I can’t tell you how happy I am for you! I have been impatiently waiting for an update and weirdly had a really good feeling about it this time 😜 Brilliant start to a Friday. Now you just have to try and relax over the next few weeks xxx

Oh you're so kind - that's made my day! ❤️ I literally had no clue so absolutely over the moon.Yes I will definitely try and take it easy - pleased that it's cooling down a bit so hopefully I can get some sleep!

How is everything progressing with you? All looking good :) xxx

We’re all good thank you-had a scan a few days ago at 10+6 as I got a private NIPT and it was amazing seeing the difference from 8 weeks, plus bean was raving away. I can’t say I’m enjoying the nausea in this heat but just trying to suck it up, and hubby had been a legend bringing me ginger beer and cold cloths 😂 Agree it’s time for some cooler weather! Xxx

Awww amazing!! That must be so incredible!! Urgh yes - the nausea must be horrid in this heat! Ginger beer is a winner for sure xx

Hi Millbanks, I’m so happy for you. Congratulations 🌟 you totally deserve this and I hope everything goes smoothly for you. Enjoy every moment of it. xx

I bet! Make sure you don’t ever forget this feeling and the hope it brings.I’m really well thanks for asking, after my early days drama things mercifully settled and I’m now a little over 27wks and starting to get more and more excited 😊

Hope things keep progressing well for you lovely. xxx

Millbanks in reply to Beatrix_K

I am trying to lock it away in my memory!! Today I feel like even if it all goes wrong, it was amazing to be here - and to know that it can work - what a boost.Oh yay!! I'm so pleased for you. The anxiety is real isn't it - but am glad you are able to enjoy it now and get excited. You absolutely deserve it. xx

Beatrix_K profile image
Beatrix_K in reply to Millbanks

Exactly the right attitude to have - this is a huge win, mentally too. The anxiety is VERY real in the first few weeks (especially if things are bumpy) but it does get easier until one day you forget you were ever worried. Take it one day at a time is my advice - and PM if you ever want to just chat x

Millbanks profile image
Millbanks in reply to Beatrix_K

Yes even yesterday my husband was like "are you sure - 100%?? - are you sure?? Are they definitely our results..." ARGH!! But it's slowly sinking in. Might go to the pharmacy to get a test as I've literally never seen those pink lines - but even though I know it's positive I'm still terrified!! What this journey does to us hey!One day at a time is very good advice - thank you. And thank you, I will definitely be messaging you!! xx

This is such fabulous news Mill! I’m so happy for you! You’re always so kind in supporting others and sharing your experiences and I’m so glad that it’s your turn for happiness now. Sending all my love and strength for a positive journey for you here on out until you meet your little one x

Patches86 profile image
Patches86 in reply to Millbanks

I’m sure you must be in such disbelief! But believe it - and enjoy every second! I’m on progynova now, lining scan on Tuesday. Like you, this cycle I did PG testing and following my ERA protocol of needing an extra 24 hours - hopefully the combo of the two makes all the difference. If not I think I’ll look into immunology testing.

We're doing okay. Husband has been on supplements and a strict lifestyle regimen for what seems an interminably long time (8 months) to try to improve DNA fragmentation. He took a follow-up test last week so now we're just waiting to find out the results. I'm hopeful that we've managed to improve things somewhat... So just in waiting mode at the mo! xx

Millbanks in reply to soccerkt6

Aww fingers crossed! I’ve seen a few improvements on here with frag so really hope you guys get some good news xxx

Awww fantastic news - so pleased for you! xxx

Thank you lovely! How are you getting on with your DE cycle? xx

We’d been waiting for a while since choosing our donor and had heard nothing but finally spoke to the nurse this morning who said we are good to go on our donors next cycle in Aug. Meds delivered on mon. So it has all suddenly got real! Very excited! xxx

That’s wonderful news!!! Woop! Everything crossed for you my lovely xxx

Thank you! Xx

Whoop whoop 🙌 🥳🎉🙌. Such excellent news and many congratulations. Keeping everything crossed for a smooth ride until your scan. Big hugs xx

Thank you so much! Gosh that sounds so weird!! Hope you are doing well - not too long now?? xx

Haha in my experience it won't really stop sounding weird, will just get a little less so! I'm almost 29 weeks now and it still doesn't really seem real sometimes, but it physically feels very real! I'm doing pretty well all things considered! xx

Haha I bet!! The tiredness is real for sure ❤️💖 so glad all is well with you xx

Thank you! 😘

Huge congratulations! 💕 You have stayed so strong during this tough journey.. Enjoy this special time. Xx

Thank you! I will indeed!! Did you decide to go ahead with banking in the end? xx

Yes we did... But only 2 cycles as we couldn't afford to pay for 3 cycles all upfront which is what our clinic wanted. Plus I'm happier to transfer this year - hopefully in Nov/Dec.Feb seemed a loooong way off which is what it would have been so 🤞Xx

That sounds like a very wise plan!! Exciting times. Wishing you so much luck xxx

Thank you! ✨🤞✨🤞

Yay yay yay! I'm genuinely super pleased to see this update Millbanks !!!! You deserve this sooo much and persevered through multiple failed rounds. Wishing a super smooth pregnancy! Xxx

Congratulations this is so amazing!! 🥳 I’m on route today to my 6th EC and you have given me some much needed hope - come on 6th time lucky!🍀 xxx

Oh wow! Wishing you so much luck - I think sometimes you just have to perseverance. Try and remember that no matter how difficult it is, there is every chance that it will work. Huge love to you xx

PaulaDag in reply to Millbanks

Your news has made my day, and given me hope too (even though I’m a smidge older than you ;).

Next cycle starting next week 🥴. It’s truly back to back! Tummy bruises have at least gone lol.

Re immune protocol did you do intralipids? I’ve got mine ready for when the transfers start but it’s steroids, some other pills, fragmin and intralipids (which I’m a bit worried about) xx

Millbanks profile image
Millbanks in reply to PaulaDag

Aww I'm so pleased - it's the main reason I wanted to share as I know so many of us have been through so much - it's hard to stay positive but it can work!!

I did do intralipids and 20mg prednisolone a day. The intralipids were much better than I was expecting - not painful or anything, just a little canular like when you go for egg collection and it only took about 30 mins. No side affects after. You'll be fine xxx

PaulaDag profile image
PaulaDag in reply to Millbanks

OK thanks, thats good to know re intralipids as getting nervous :). Did you see Dr Shehata in Epsom for your immune protocol or did do it direct with your fertility clinic? xxx

Omg!! Congratulations!! This has made my day! ❤️❤️. Well done you!x

Alas we had our 6th bfn this week from a double DE transfer. But I’m doing ok, think I’m getting used to this shit 🙄 back to the drawing board again. Xx

Oh I’m so sorry lovely. Gosh it’s just heartbreaking isn’t it. Have you looked in to immunology at all? I think it was the key for us xxx

Yeah I’ve had nk cells tested. But I’m researching recurrent implantation failure specialists now.

That sounds like a good plan. Really hope it throws something up for you xxx

What lovely news!! I’m on my 5th transfer so it’s given me hope. Congratulations xxxx

Aww wonderful, good luck my lovely!! Stay positive xxx

Millbanksssss!!!! Yesssss girl! 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽😍😍😍 I am SO beyond happy to see this post from you! This is the best news ☺️ You are so deserving of this with everything you’ve gone through! Hope you continue taking it easy and all the best - look forward to seeing more happy updates from you love xxx

Thank you so much!!! I’m absolutely over the moon but still in disbelief….. think it’ll take time for it to sink it. Hope you’re getting on well my lovely 💖❤️🥰 xxx

Hehe, yes I remember that feeling well - definitely surreal but so pleased you’re experiencing it! It’ll definitely feel more real once those wonderful first trimester symptoms kick in and at your next scan! I’m doing well - the heat plus 3rd trimester is an eye opener but otherwise doing just dandy xxx

Hehe! I’m actually looking forward to feeling rough!! What are we like?!? Xx

Haha I know, we wait so long for this that we just want to enjoy every moment. I definitely stuck my head in the bin and dishwasher to check my nausea was still there on more than one occasion 🤣🤣 xxx

Haaaaa!! Well we’ve been through so much it’s only natural to panic at every turn! Currently having uterus twinges and trying not to google it xxx

I know, I felt like I could only relax after I could start feeling baby kick (which took a while as of course I had an anterior placenta) but that wasn’t until 23 weeks for me! Try and take one day at a time (it’s hard I know..!). Twinges are definitely normal, I had pulling/cramping pretty much through 1st trimester - uterus is just stretching to make some room for the little one. Xxx

That’s good to know! How long for you now? Xx

Just over 8 weeks to go now..hoping he will continue baking until September. I have a scan next week to check his growth so obviously there is some anxiousness (as always) but it is definitely starting to feel real and tangible now 🙈 do you know when you’ll have your viability scan yet? Xxx

Eeeeeek!!! That’s wonderful news 🥰Really hope he keeps cooking!

Yes on the 10th August, so just taking it one day at a time until then… PUPO baby!! Xx

Aww I’m so pleased. It’s the main reason I wanted to post this as I know how hard it is when you get to 4/5/6… but it can work!! For me I think the immune protocol was key. Got everything crossed for you xxx

Aussie83 in reply to Millbanks

Yeah I think it really helps to see it can work after such a long road!

Yes I am doing immune bloods & an ERA next month before next transfer. Hopefully it’s the gold ticket 🤞

You must be so happy, revel in it x

We are 30 weeks now!!! She is on the smaller side so they are monitoring her growth very closely to make sure she doesn't need to come out sooner than later but as of now all is going well!!! I am so very happy for you though, you are one of the women that I admired for not giving up and to keep pushing forward for this so I cannot wait to follow your progress!!!! Good luck and keep us posted!!!

Aww that’s great! Hope she manages to keep cooking full term ❤️That’s so kind of you to say 🥰 I always felt that I couldn’t give up when there were still things to try and I’m so so happy that we got a positive. A really long way to go but it’s a great start 💖 xx

Yessss Millbanks 🥰

Thank you so much my lovely - I'm stunned and over the moon!! I've got everything crossed for your next cycle xxx

You're such a sweetheart, thank you. Looking forward to trying naturally next week!! First natural attempt we've had since April (had the IVF then husband was away for a month after our failed transfer in June so we missed this month). But as I'm assuming we won't strike gold there,, I'll start downregging for the next cycle in Sept. Wishing you all the luck in the world with each precious milestone xx

You absolutely never know! You just crack on and see what happens 😊But if not, maybe a little break is nice to help you relax xxx

Yes, thank you. Transfer 5 and last one of the first cycle. Really lost trust in my clinic though.

We got a puppy the day after transfer which has been the best distraction ever

I was just reading through your old post about ERA and curiously clicked on ur profile and seen this recent post. So very pleased for you! Congratulations, such beautiful news! Xx

That’s so kind of you, thank you! It’s still all a bit surreal to be honest. I think the ERA and the steroids did the trick. How are you getting on? Xxx

Oh! I haven’t been on here for weeks. I’m so SO happy to see this post. Huge congratulations and lots of love! xx

Aww good luck! Everything crossed my lovely. Still not quite able to relax and enjoy it just yet - scan next week so hopefully that’ll be ok and then it can start to feel a bit more real. Xxx

Thank you, much appreciated! :) I know wait times before scans are worrying! Be kind to yourself and treat yourself to something nice! xx

Millbanks profile image
Millbanks in reply to DJ202

Yes this is my first experience of it so not really sure what to expect but unfortunately have seen so many horror stories on here that it makes me nervous 😟 xx

I wonder if a lot of the positives don’t post as they worry it’s insensitive. I felt like you and that’s why I wanted to post a positive scan result to give others hope! Not long to go now Xx

Yes you are probably right!! I’d love to see more positive scan posts… Thank you 🙏🏼 just hoping all ok xxx

Remember you're likely to read the difficult stories here - people rarely share the positive stories! The most important thing is for you to look after yourself and listen to your body, take lots of rest breaks and eat little and often! :)
