I thought I would start a IVF journal .

After 3 years of TTC baby #1 it's time to start IVF.

The reason we have decided to do IVF is because we have had 7 failed IUI's (2 worked but ended in early miscarriages)
I have PCOS, insulin resistance and hypothyroidism
Dh has low sperm count

Dec 12. - I started taking a low dose birth control, baby aspirin and metformin
I go back on jan. 5 for a baseline appointment
Jan 9th I will start my stim meds


Dec 30th- all of my Meds arrived !!!! I'm excited but so nervous too. I will be taking so many meds . I start next week :)
- menopur
-pregnyl
-crinone gel
-ganirelix
-Follistim
-plus my normal meds (prenatal, synthroid, metformin and baby aspirin)

1/1- HAPPY NEW YEAR! I opened my fortune cookie after dinner last night and I pray it's right :) fx fx



Fx this works ;)

How many embryos did they transfer ?

My dr wants to transfer 1 embryo one day 5 or 2 embryos on day 3. I just want what ever gives me the best chance

Our first time I only transferred 1 5 day embryo since that it's what my doctor recommend. It didn't work but luckily I had frozen embryos so with my frozen embryo transfer I told them I wanted to transfer two which resulted in my boys. Look forward to following your journey!

I pray that I get the chance to freeze some embryos incase IVF #1 doesn't work but hopefully it will work.

Thank you for sharing .
