DH and I have been trying to get pregnant since we got married six years ago. After many years of unsuccesful fertility treatments (clomid, injectables with IUI - too many cycles to count), we decided to take a financial risk and try IVF. We found a wonderful clinic and doctor who was very supportive and great to work with. I had my ET on 4/1 and found out on 4/8 that we were pregnant! Wow - first cycle and everything! My beta numbers doubled just like they were supposed to and we were excited to see our baby on 5/6 at the first ultrasound. However, when they went in to look, they found TWO babies, but no fetal heartbeats. My doctor called it "embryonic demise" and was very supportive. He wants me to try his July cycle, but I don't think I'll be ready. I am so depressed. After trying for so long and being successful, only to have a miscarraige at 7 1/2 weeks. I feel like I am being punished for something...but I don't know what. My D&C was Tuesday and I feel not only like a failure, but empty and sad.

I am thinking that we will try again after the first of the year, if finances permit. That gives me six months to get back in shape mentally and physically. The Dr. said that since I got pregnant the first cycle, I will probably do the same on the next cycle and that my chances of m/c are still 20%, but that I would probably be just fine.

Has anyone gone through the same experience with success on the next cycle?

hello. just recover from my emotional days. i started spotting on my period day. i was totally devastated. i thought this is the end. well, i still went for my hpt on my scheduled day (7/7) and found positive. but my beta was weak. doctor said 50/50 chance and most probably prepare for negative. i bled for 2 weeks, the last 2 days very heavy. i tested negative today.

i'm ok, though sad and angry. i'm prepared, whatever GOD gives me. i should thank GOD for giving me strength to go thru.

Good luck for your future taking. GOD BLESS
