IVF Process

9 weeks…

9 week u/s went well today.  I’ve officially graduated to the high-risk ob.  That is a major milestone!  All babies are measuring great and their heartbeats are all still very strong!  We found out today that Babies B and C are not sharing an amniotic sac, so that is great!  It’s much safer for them…

There’s THREE???

TRIPLETS!!!  Yes, we are having triplets.  We cannot believe it and are so grateful to God.  He truly is amazing. We are still in shock. . .but are absolutely over-the-moon joyed.  We were finally able to tell our immediate families yesterday.  It felt so good to finally share this great news. . .no matter how…

Extreme Eating

I have been STARVING!!!  And I’m not using the term lightly.  Seriously, I cannot get enough food in.  I’m eating every 2 hours and in the middle of the night.  And I seriously cannot get enough chicken.  I actually baked 2 chicken breasts today and chowed down for lunch. . .I don’t even like chicken!!!!!…

Beta #2

Beta #2 came back yesterday at 1795 (17dpo).  My nurse (Jill) told me I was, “very pregnant.”  Not sure what that means, but I’ll take it!  We also don’t need to do another beta test because the numbers are so high.  Jill also said she suspected multiples but that she couldn’t be sure without an…

BIG FAT POSITIVE!!!!!!

We officially got our BFP today!!!!  Today, at 14 dpo, my hCG beta came back at 475!!!  (Last cycle it was 71).  I have not stopped praising God, crying, and shaking.  The wait was really hard today and I felt like my heart was going to beat out of my chest. . .but I am…

The Dreaded 2WW…

This wait is awful!  I’m freaking out that it didn’t work. . .and Aaron keeps reminding me that I shouldn’t be worrying right now.  It’s so hard not to!!!  We’ve put so much into this cycle that I just don’t know if I could go through it again.  This is not fun.  We’ll know in…

Transfer Day, Part 2

Everything went well today!  I’m enjoying my time on the couch and just thrilled to have gotten this far.  We actually had a successful transfer!  We transferred two embryos today: a 5AA and 5BB. The embryologist told us we had a 90% chance of one implanting and a 75% chance of both of them implanting….

Transfer Day!!!

Transfer Day is finally here and we couldn’t be more ready.  I went for my last run yesterday and did a quick Pure Barre workout this morning.  🙂  The house is spotless, I’ve got homemade chicken noodle soup and all kinds of healthy snacks stocked up in the fridge, books and the laptop are ready…

Results are in!

We ended up having “several embryos” make it to Day 5 but only 2 were strong enough to biopsy. Of those 2 embryos, both came back normal!!!  WE HAVE TWO!!!  We are super happy with this result and plan to put both back in.  🙂  We now just have to wait 3 normal cycles before…

Egg Retrieval

Our egg retrieval was a success!  They managed to get 14 eggs (11 mature)!  I know these are still low numbers, but we are absolutely thrilled.  After only retrieving 5 last time (2 mature) – this is a huge improvement!  7 of our eggs fertilized so now we just wait until Day 5 to see…
