Hi Just wondering is anyone else going through, been or planning IVF? I've just finished my first one and currently on the tww! I was on the short protocol. We had been ttc no.2 for two years and started investigations last oct. Did 3 rounds of clomid and then decided to just go straight to sims. And for anyone thinking of going, they have been absolutely brilliant. We met with them in February. I'm 32 and dh is 35 Turns out my AMH was 6, so very unexpected. Following that found out my left tube is also blocked so we decided not to bothe IUI and just straight to IVF. We got scanned with around 15-17 follies and then managed to retrieve 9eggs. Out of which 5 fertilised. We were planning to do a five day blastocyst. So after very long five days, five had survived! I had the transfer yesterday, we decided to transfer two. Doc said that the two were excellent and top grade. Got the call this an to find out we were also very lucky to also have two more excellent quality to freeze!! So now I'm on the horrible two week wait! Would love to chat to others about their experiences

Hi martina, That was a brilliant fertilisation result! It's so nerve wrecking isn't it? Is this your first attempt? Very best of luck bride! Well you know what they say you only need one good one. How many days are you in now? I had the transfer on sat. So sorry to hear about the miscarriage I can't even imagine how awful it must have been.

Yes this is our first attempt. It's ICSI that we are doing. Delighted with the result. So nerve wrecking though... Oh lord Bride, fair play to you going through so many cycles. Very best of luck to you xxx

Oh the very best of luck bridie! Its so nerve wrecking alright! How have you been feeling otherwise? The cramping could be positive too. fingers and toes and legs crossed for you! When is your blood test? Have you even thought about a pregnacy test. Martina that's great are you having a three day or five day blast transfer? Have you decided how many yet? Yea have to say I was alright until after the transfer, it's so nice having a constant plan and appointments ect to keep you occupied but now I've this horrible wait and I feel so helpless!

Hi ladies, can I join you? Hopefully you will all be happy with your bumps by the time I get to your stage. Just found out that dh has very low count. We will prob be doing icsi in next few months. Have to wait for him to have dna bloods and see urologist first. The waiting is such a pain! Hope you are all doing well
