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.

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!!

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!
