I have never posted here before and have not been keeping up with posts, but I think a few people in here will remember me. I was on the TTC 12+ board for a while, and left last January after our first IVF failed in December 2009.
Well I was hoping to post here with goods news after IVF #3 but I can't. We just found out that our third IVF failed, and we're crushed. With IVF #1 in December we transferred three low-grade blasts and got a BFN. With IVF #2 in April we transferred one top-grade blast and one mid-grade blast -- BFN. But with IVF #3 in September we transferred two high-grade blasts and got a BFP. I was pregnant for a couple of weeks and starting to get excited. All my symptoms were promising. But our 6 week ultrasound showed an empty sac that had stopped growing, and a repeat u/s this week confirmed. I should be 7 weeks pg but instead am about to miscarry.
We are crushed. I was really hoping to join you all on this board. At this point I am not sure if we are going to try again. We've been trying since May 2008 and have failed three IVF's and I think it's pretty clear that we can't have kids together.
I'm sorry to post a downer post here where you are all celebrating. I was just so close to joining you! I hope everyone is doing well and I still think of you all from the TTC 12+ board and I'm wishing you the best.
