Bob is saying hi too, a few kicks there!
Hiya - yes we did have IVF and I'm more than happy to answer any questions you might have!
This BFP was our fourth IVF cycle (2 fresh and 2 frozen). Our initial fresh cycle was a BFN, our first frozen cycle after that was a BFP but I had an early m/c, then I had a BFN with my next frozen cycle and embarked on another fresh one which produced my beautiful twinnies that I'm baking away now. In all it was 4 cycles over a 7 month period.
We actually had two embryos put back which is why we ended up with twins it seems Our first two cycles we put back one, had the one BFN and the one m/c, then our next frozen cycle we put back two and it was a BFN and the last one we put back two fresh and low and behold they both took. We were very surprised since we'd had more failures than successes that both implanted, we thought we'd be lucky to have ONE implant. Instant family
They say that most people will have their BFP after three fresh cycles (they don't include frozen cycles in these statistics as they don't have quite as high a success rate as fresh cycles - frozen cycles are considered extra bites at the cherry so to speak). So I did fall within those stats as I only had to have 2 fresh cycles to get a BFP.
If you ever have any questions feel free to ask, it really was a harrowing 7 month period and some of the highest and lowest moments of my life but absolutely 100% worth it in the end. DH and I had unexplained infertility, we're both young and healthy so very strange we were not conceiving on our own. Im just thankful we had the technology available to us to give us a helping hand
Livvy - Your twins are just so beautiful and special!!! I'm so happy for you!
Silent - sorry i can't see anything probs just to early
TML - Hi Bob!
Caz - OMG!!!! not long! good luck! I can't wait to hear the news when she arrives!!!
AFM, Avril and I are plodding along here just fine. she is a crankypants and spends most of her time in her "my little lamb cradle and swing" (seriously preggo ladies you NEED one of these! two for you Liv! they are like $300 but worth every CENT!) We combo breast and bottle feed and that seems to be working out really well for us. She likes to watch Karl Stafanovic in the morning and Richard Reid for her Hollywood Gossip. She doesn't like Ready Steady Cook or Murder She Wrote.
She has learnt to smile and is on her way to rolling over (soon! not there yet!) and has put the furkids in their place.
If i find out how to put a fresh pic up I will (they are all on my phone!! )
much love and baby dust
Doh I can't see any of the photos at work coz all the photo sharing sites are blocked, but can't wait to have a look at your twinny shots when I get home Liv!
Still super excited for Hokey, Hopeful and Silent, things are looking good girls!
Silent, I know the first time I saw a faint line, I struggled to get it to show up in a pic. Here's my 10DPO pic very hard to see the line. This was using an extremely expensive camera! I knew I could see the line though. I had to take it right up close, flash off and then crop it to show JUST the window to be able to see it at all. It also helps if you put a little black nicko mark at each end of the line. gives people a point to focus on. Anyay this was me the very next day at 11DPO. Fingers crossed you've got a line like that tomorrow!!!

Thanks Caz. I asked my gyno to fax over a slip for beta hcg and progesterone. Fingers crossed he remembers.
