Puffsgirl11: So understand about the break, it is such a hard friggin road to travel along.
We have had a really rough time, i did my first cycle in August, DH had a biopsy on the day i had EPU and they got 4 vials of sperm, the first vial they were all dead, the second vial only 4 live sperm and then they found enough in the third vial to fertilise my 12 eggs. We have 1 vial left over for next time although not sure how many are actually in there. We were lucky to get a BFP straight away but i had a MC at 8 weeks. Had a lot of problems after it and ended up in hospital due to retained product left in there from the D&C so then had to wait 5 months to do another cycle while all my levels went back to normal. Felt like the longest time of my life.
I am doing my first cycle now since all this happened – a natural FET and am currently in the TWW, so hoping this one is a lot better. I have my BT on 20th of January.
So glad to hear you have a plan for your next step of the way, in the months i had off between cycles i went to the gym nearly every day, ate super healthy (apart from the odd bender of a night) and really got myself back together again physically and emotionally. There is a great thread that Lindylou started in the “Pregnancy and babies through IVF’ section about things that people miss when they have kids, i have used this list that everyone has commented on to do as much of it as possible before i have kids. You should have a look at it, a lot of the stuff ladies have noted is stuff i would never of thought twice about,
I wish you all the best in your journey babe
