I was on this board in late 2006/early 2007. Through God's miracle and IVF, I gave birth to our daughter, Margaret (Maggie) on 9/24/07. I can't believe she will be 3 years old in a few months!
My name is Amy I am 40. My DH, Kevin, is 39 (he doesn't let me forget he's younger by 6 months). We decided to give IVF one more try and I began my cycle in early July. Today I had my ER and they retrieved 8 eggs! I won't know until tomorrow how many are mature though... I didn't do as well on the stims this time as last time, so I'm a bit worried. I am optimistic though! I think 8 eggs is an awesome number, but last time they retrieved 9 or 11 and I think most of those were mature.
We had been ttc, actively, since 2005. Our first cycle diagnosis was MFI due to low sperm count/motility, and I had issues with high FSH. This cycle has been different though. When we both went for testing for this round, all my DH's numbers were all within the normal range. All my numbers looked good too, except my FSH, which was a little high at 13.9 #I think#. Anyway, I began stimming on 7/5 with menopur and bravelle and added ganirilex on the 6th day. When I went for my US yesterday, only 4 eggs were mature and 2 others were at 14mm. Today when they retrieved the eggs, they took 8, so I'm hoping that the 4 that aren't mature will grow, grow, grow!
That's my story so far... I will have (God willing) transfer on Tues and then the dreaded 2ww! I am on vacation for those two weeks and my first day back at work is the day that I should have my blood test... I will probably have to wait until Wed morning to get my blood drawn, so I will have 2 week + 1 day wait! Lol!!!!
I look forward to chatting with all of you and wish everyone good luck and sticky vibes!!!!
