Hi everyone, I've been through IVF four times and wanted to say feel free to ask me any questions. I managed to succeed on my final attempt and completely understand how much of a rollercoaster it is, both physically and emotionally X

Hi Sonya123. This is such great news to read that FS advised sperm characteristics are not so bad 😊 And great thinking not to waste a cycle and go for an IUI in the meantime, I agree 100%. I wish you guys all the best and no matters the how as long as it brings a baby 😇

This cycle is my very first one so I don't know as much as Orange_groves for example but I have to say that I imagined ICSI so much worse and lenghty. So far it's been really good and I never doubted it could not work. I'll be crushed if it doesn't but decided to deal with that if and when it happens not beforehand in the doubt it would not... Too much ifs and worries for nothing if it ends with a baby 😍 Easier said than done for sure but it's in my nature to be over optimistic 😉

I first contacted the fertility clinic on Jan 4th and actually got my fresh transfer this morning. Got 11 eggs collected on Apr 12th out of which 6 got fertilised. FS said this morning the embryo looked "really good" so I was over the moon. Another embryo looks good for freezing tonight and two more might be good too, to be confirmed on Monday.

I also agree so much on the addictive side of checking forums so I'll try not to during TWW... We'll see how I stick to that... Or not 😂

Hi TMS, how was your first appointment on Tuesday? Did you guys get some tests' results?

Hi Dammy74. Waouh! Congratulations!! I wish you the very best and healthiest for the rest of your pregnancy...and after 😉 It's so nice to have an update on your situation and know that it went all well for you. Thank you also for your advice on staying relaxed. I actually thought of you and your words after eggs collection when I started wondering and thinking the 5 days would be just too long to wait. I'm keeping your advice in mind especially for the two weeks to come 😊

Hi leti sorry not been on for a while I’ve had a mini freak out! It’s all getting a bit too real for me and my anxiety is through the roof! So I have my ultrasound on Wednesday, my partner had his detailed seaman test the week after. She has everything else from me, I don’t know my AMH results yet as they wasn’t back before my appointment but I should get them at the next appointment she said that will be after the ultrasound and my partners test.
I feel like it’s happening all too fast now and I’m really overwhelmed. I’m hoping it’s normal to feel this way, I’ve waited and wanted to have a baby for so long I guess I didn’t imagine it happening this way but it is what it is.
That’s so exciting for you that your embryo has fertilised I’m over the moon for you!!! Are you now in the TWW period or are you still waiting on the embryo transfer?
