I have 2 1/2 yr old twin. It took 3 rounds of IVF to get them here. We are headed back to the doctor on Thursday to get the ball rolling. I don't have any frozen left. It took all of them each time. I have only 1 ovary and 1 tube and to make a long story short I don't get a lot of embryos and we were worried when only 2 made it to blasts and then thrilled when they both implanted. I am so ready for more babies but I am dreading the process.

The past week I have really been haveing recurring feelings about infertility that I had before I had the kids. I know I have twins now but it is all coming back. Where did that come from. I don't know if that is normal or what is going on

Well, We will be harvesting eggs on 4/26 or so and then freezing and doing a FET the end of May. Doing a FEt is what worked with my current twins and is what the doctor recommended. I am so excited and stressed/scared at the same time. Wish us luck.

wow, that's interesting... so are you fertilizing the embryos at harvest? and then freezing embryos? or freezing eggs?

what is the reasoning for not doing a fresh cycle? I'm curious. I wish you the best! I'm sure you are excited and yet apprehensive!! good luck!

We fertilize at harvest and then freeze. My dr is currently doing a trial trying to prove that the odds are better. I was on the pretrial to get pregnant wtih my twins. My eggs developed slowly and I couldn't implant the first round becasue of it so doing a FET makes the timing easier to manipulate.

We I started my shots yesterday and hoping for a retrieval on 4/26. Wish me luck. and lots of eggs.

interesting. I hope it works for you!! and that's neat that your dr is doing a trial relating to FET. I know they say that the thaw rate is about 50%, but our frozen embryo did thaw great... just didn't implant, so I guess we made it past the 50% thaw rate, but not the implantation rate.

I hope you get lots of eggs to fertilize! your time is coming up! Wow, started shots yesterday! good luck!
