    We are @cag14.

    I was due to start last month but had to have a benign lump cut out of my shin so everything got pushed back anyway I should be starting next week

    As you can see from my signature we were fortunate enough to conceive our daughter via ICSI #1. She is now 9months, and due to my cr.appy AMH levels we have decided to get started with our next round. Realistically I am not holding out hope for another immediate success, so the sooner we start the better IMO.

    My RE has kept everything exactly the same as last time which makes sense. I will be on 225 menopur and orgalutran (sic!), then using Ovidrel to trigger.
    Last cycle we only had 6 follies, and collect 5 eggs which all fertilised but weren't of great quality. We ended up transferring 2 x day 3 embryos and sadly none of the others made it to freezing.
    Fortunately one of those fragmented day 3's stuck & our daughter arrived 01.07.16

    Not sure if you're the same but I feel incredibly anxious about starting IVF again. I think because I am more aware of the pitfalls involved. Although my pregnancy was fairly straight forward I never enjoyed it as I was constantly worried about something happening...URGH. I am sure going through IVF turns many of us into nervous wrecks

    I'm in the middle of my first cycle for #2. We were lucky enough to conceive our DD with our first fresh icsi cycle at our current clinic (had a couple of unsuccessful goes at another clinic before) and have four embryos in the freezer. I feel like it can't be so easy for number two to get pregnant first go at a FET so I'm not holding out much hope for this cycle! But you never know. Have you started ttc your second yet?

    We are doing ivf again for our second, our boy is 2y2mths. We are at the end of our first cycle, have second BT today to confirm its negative then wanting to do FET with our last embryo asap. I feel impatient! lol

    Thanks for replying ladies. I am currently on my third egg collection and hopefully fourth transfer for bub 2. We lose a lot of eggs due to PGD having to be done. I am so worried it's just not going to happen ever again.

    Our first was a result of 2 egg collections and three FET

    We were lucky to get our DD on our first ICSI cycle, but didn't have any frozen so it took a while to decide to go again. Mostly I was afraid how I would cope with a failed cycle. Fast forward 12 months and I'm now pregnant with #2, but that took a lot of effort! I got OHSS in the first cycle so they froze both embryos, then after preparing for a FET both of them failed to thaw Went into another ICSI cycle and got 3 embryos. The fresh transfer was a BFN, so was the first FET. It was only our very last embryo that has managed to stick. So it's taken 5 cycles with 3 transfers to get our BFP. I feared how I would handle this whole rollercoaster and foolishly thought it would be easy to get pregnant again, but we've made it through this far.

    If I could go back I would have started trying again earlier, basically as soon as we knew we wanted another child. I didn't expect to take a year to conceive so I feel like we wasted some precious time.

    @bubble trouble... I'm in fear ATM. Trying for out second already on 3rd egg collection and 4th transfer. I wish I started earlier when my DD was 1 like I wanted and not waited till 2 to start. Now a year on.

    I'm trying for a 2nd pregnancy! I have twins from my 4th ICSI cycle back in 2013. We had 6 x 3day embryos left - This is my 3rd FET trying for this baby
