    Default Holy crap batman im pregnancy after our ICSI/IVF baby!!!!!

    This thread is kind of in between fertility issues a surprise pregnancy. So I am not wanting to offend anyone at all. But I need to talk to someone about this and its a bit early for my family to know.

    We have male fertility issue - so was told only 5% chance of concieving naturally (very similar to hubby having the snip!) and it took us nearly 4 years, so much $$$, emotional rollercoasters etc via ICSI to get our little man.

    DS2 is nearly 15 months and I finished bf in dec 2012. We had already had an appointment with our fertility spec. to use our frosties around august this year and start the whole ttc battle. But I know my cycles down pat as it becomes ingrained after ttc for so long so I had a feeling... I wonder???? Got to day 40 and thought ok going to check and

    My dh is over the moon as he's little swimmers made it I was nearly having a breakdown - I am in shock!!! plus I am worried as I had a really big drinking night 3 weeks ago I was on diet pills in January (to lose ivf weight before ttc again) I havnt been on folic acid!! I drink a lot of coffee!!

    Plus I have just returned back to work 4 weeks ago from maternity leave, so just starting to get some money back, catch up on bills, getting ready to pay off the credit cards to start icsi. Ive lost 8 kgs, was planning on losing another 15kgs, on a health kick etc etc.

    and im nearly 6 wks pregnant im excited, but really worried as it was sooo controlled last time and finally when we got DS2, kind of felt like we struggled and we deserved this!!. This just seems "too easy" if u know what I mean??? Has anyone been in my situation????

    Well I haven't been in your exact situation BUT after suffering a missed miscarriage back in February last year, we were told that our chances of conceiving naturally and getting past 12 weeks were about 1% due to poor morphology and motility on DH's side and some issues on my end. We got our BFP six months after that diagnosis in September as we were going to start IVF come the new year.

    I am now 28 weeks pregnant with a healthy baby girl
    Congrats on your miracle baby!

    Hi and first up congratulations!!!!

    While not due to male factor we had such a hard time TTC our #1. Multiple m/c unsuccessful IUI an IVF preg that resulted in another m/c before finally falling pregnant with our DS who is now almost 3.

    Last year we used our last frosty in the hope that it would work first time for #2. No such luck. Back to the drawing board. Went back to FS to do extra testing before a fresh IVF cycle. Decided we needed to wait a few months to afford IVF and would try in March...

    Early January I said to hubby that I just "felt" that I might be pregnant this cycle. Tested early and bam....!! Due September. So far I'm 11 weeks and due for 12 week scan next week and so far so good.

    Even though we had one failed FET in trying for #2 it seems just soo much easier this time around. Would almost be unbelievable if it weren't for the extreme fatigue and on and off M/S.

    Crazy what our bodies can do!!!

    Congratulations and all the best for a wonderful pregnancy!! Miracles can happen.

    It hasn't happened to me, but to a couple of my friends it has. For one couple bub #2 (both #1 & #2 were IVF) was only a few months old, so their bub#2 & #3 are less than 12 months apart, which was definitely not planned and quite a surprise to be sure!

    5% chance is still a 5% chance, so it isn't impossible, but I'm sure it felt like it. My dh's parents tried for 7 years to conceive naturally (no other options back then) without success. They ended up using all their savings to put a pool in their backyard and no sooner had they started doing that than my MIL got pregnant! She'd given up on kids, so it was quite a shock. You can imagine her shock when 12 months later she was pregnant again with #2!! It was unknown why they had issues, but I'm sure if IVF was available they would have gone down that route well before the 7 year mark.

    Congratulations on your pregnancy - hope it's lovely & uneventful for you!

    I do know someone who did. Their 1st took 16 rounds of IVF/ICSI due to problems with her DH's sperm. Their #2 was a complete surprise and once she was preg with that one she realised that she must have been pregnant a few months before (but would have lost it at 5-6 weeks) as she'd had symptoms then and a long cycle but hadn't tested.

    How very exciting for you! I love these sorts of stories!

    My sis did, after an eptopic and loosing one tube, they went ivf, got one, then managed a natural one!

    We have been trying for the past 2 years, 2 rounds of clomid, so much tracking etc etc. Then it just happened, no tracking, no temp taking, no positioning, no drugs. I know what you mean when you say it feels to easy. Just wish it could have happened this easy 2 yrs ago! :P
