IVF Cancellation thoughts......
13
Sat, 01-14-2012 - 12:17pm

I wanted to share my story about my ALMOST IVF cancellation (conversion to IUI). My doctor recommended me to convert to an IUI and DH & I decided to continue on with IVF and we are so glad we did. I had my ER yesterday and I had 13 retrieved and today found out that 7 fertilized.

My story: I am 37 and DH is 42. In August my antral follicle count was 20 which was good for someone my age. I didn't think I would have any problems stimming but I was wrong (kinda of).

Day 5 of stim (325 units of Follistim): 3 follicles on the right and 3 of the left. All under 8mm. I was so shocked that I had so few growing. I was really expecting to see around 15.

I agree, I was thinking of you today when were discussing the conversion to IUI and thinking about your great results...but there wasn't much change from thursday to today, and my gut said to wait for another cycle.

Kate- i thought my story could help others. As of today, i am 6 weeks preggers and really hope this baby sticks. I had an ectopic in 2010. I am feeling good about things, crossing fingers. When the RE mentioned cancellation he said i only had about a 5% chance. All i can say is percentages are so silly because nobody can really know. I asked about percentages at my egg transfer and he said a larger number. Go with you gut!

Congratulations!!  He's perfect!!  What a cutie!

Thanks for sharing your good news!

I'm pregnant with a baby boy from a frozen embryo transfer in March.  It was our first FET.  We got pregnant a couple years ago with a fresh IVF cycle and had some frozen embryos from that cycle.  Max is scheduled to arrive via c-section December 3rd.  We can't wait!  Seeing your little one makes me even more excited!!
