I am new to IVF and looking for a support system.  I am a 35-year-old single woman.  I have spent a year trying to get pregnant through IUI's with a sperm donor.  I had 1 success that ended in miscarriage at 12 weeks and 8 unsuccessful IUI's.  I am now on to IVF.  I am doing 2 egg retrievals before transferring an embryo back.  I had my first retrieval about 2 weeks ago and am now back on birth control with an appointment in 3 weeks to see if my ovaries are healed enough to begin injections again.  For the first retrieval, they took 8 eggs and were able to fertilize 7 of them.  Of those, 5 grew properly but only 3 made it to the blastocyst stage and were frozen.  I know I have another retrieval, but I am very nervous about only having 3 embryos right now!  After the second retrieval and after the blastocyst is reached, all embryos will have genetic testing done so I worry I will lose more.  How many have some of you had?

Hello, I'm Amanda, I'm 27 and I'm about to begin my 3rd ivf/icsi cycle. Right now I'm on BCPs, folic acid, iron tablets and a multivitamin. I also just discovered that I have mild hypothyroidism and I'm on Eutirox to get my levels normal. Today I had my saline scan and my womb and ovaries look great so I'm extremely happy about that. Next up is a blood test on the 15th of February to make sure the Eutirox worked if it didn't do its job my cycle will be postponed until my TSH is normal, so I'm praying my TSH will be normal. Jamie ,it is nice to meet you! For my 1st ivf I had 3embies and zero blasts and for my 2nd ivf I had 2 blasts so I'd say not to worry you are doing great! Amanda
