    Thanks everyone,
    My bt came back positive and hcg 450.
    They also told me today that the results from the biopsy showed I do not have high natural killer cells. I do need however to stay on prednisolone until week 15. I do not understand why but I'll ask next week when I go for the next bt.
    Have nice weekend.

    @Arlais, when did you find out about your factor 2 issue? What does it mean for you?

    During my assessment cycle for IVF my FS tested for antinuclear antibodies and found it's very high, which indicates some sort of immune issue. She put me on pred starting on day 2, then added baby aspirin after EPU. Once my pregnancy was confirmed I started daily clexane injections.

    Once handed over to my chosen Ob (who also happens to be a FS) she ordered a full immune screening - so much blood! That diagnosed the PGM and ruled out other disorders such as lupus, factor v leiden, etc.

    I am so very thankful every day that I had testing done before even starting IVF treatment. I have read too many stories of heartbreaking losses and failed cycles which have gone on for years before a specialist decided to take a closer look. I'm even glad in a way that we decided to try IVF so early (mfi after vas reversal), otherwise who knows if I would have found out at all, or potentially had a life threatening clot?

    I've struggled through this at times, but I only wish that everyone else could have a fairly easy journey like mine. Everyone here is so deserving and I hope will have the chance to be awesome parents soon!

    Thanks for all your lovely well wishes and positive thoughts!! I am still floating on cloud nine!

    Can hardly sleep at the moment! Not sure if its the excitement or whether its hormones causing me to wake up at around 3am!!

    Having some more intralipids on tues then no more blood tests till Friday! I thought that was a terribly long wait! Might go to my gp in the meantime and see if she will check the levels for me! I want to know they are increasing!!

    congrats on your positive Lilla!!

    Arlais, thanks so much for sharing that info, how wonderful you were spared going through cycles without being thoroughly tested... I firmly believe all women should be immune tested pre IVF, it's crazy that we aren't and have to find out all this stuff for ourselves and that a lot of people are out there and still don't understand why things aren't working out, awful.

    Libelle, I'd say it's the hormones my dear, enjoy!

    Hi to everyone else hope all is going well

    Hi Ladies,

    Preciousheart - I couldn't agree with you more about having thorough testing. If women have have 3 or more unsuccessful transfers knowing it's not an embryo issue then testing is a MUST! I wish I did this cycles ago knowing what I know now!!

    Lillaa - Congratulations on your BFP those levels are very reassuring!!

    @Arlais, thanks for explaining everything to us. True that this could have taken you years to find out about it had you started ttc naturally and all. I'm glad you are I and this is all under control.
    To everyone else, thank you for your very kind words!
    I am really not realizing at all.
    I haven't been sleeping well since half way through the tww and I wonder if it is due to the steroids or the pregnancy! Anyway, today is the first day I have had a good night sleep and I am feeling very happy and excited!
    Hope you all had a nice weekend as well. Thank you for your support!

    I agree too!! I'm quite annoyed and angry that I've spent the best part of 8 years ttc. Spending thousands and thousands on ivf, having complete faith in my fs to get me pregnant when the whole time nothing was ever said about doing further testing on why my perfectly good embryos were not implanting. I just hope that all the girls coming behind us and just starting their ivf journeys are more exposed to immune testing!! Surely conventional fs are starting to see that there is in fact success through immune protocols. We can only hope.

    There would be so much benefit to everyone if immune testing was standard all over before commencing IVF treatment. Not only saving people from the heartache and financial implications of failed cycles, but surely the specialists could see it would likely dramatically increase their success rates?

    I walked into this IVF world so wide eyed and naive, but now everyone I come across who is going through this process I encourage to seek further testing as soon as possible. Hopefully if it's something more and more people are demanding from their FS it will become the norm, rather than the exception!
