I mostly lurk JM because Iím a bit shy - but I could really use some support..
My husband and I have been trying unsuccessfully to conceive since 2008. Iím 28 years old and my husband is 31. We are now doing IVF because our RE discovered that I have low AMH (0.49) and my husband has poor sperm quality and quantity and gave us a 5% chance of ever conceiving naturally.
I started IVF in February and happily retrieved 16 eggs. Of the 16, 6 fertilized properly, so 4 went to cryo-preservation and we transferred two 5 day blasts which resulted in a BFN.
In May we transferred two frozen embryos and I received my very first ever BFP! My betas were ok at 49 and then 177. To our devastation, at my 7 week 3 day ultrasound on June 25th, we discovered that there was only a gestational sac. After about 5 days my RE insisted on a D&C so that we could embark back on the IVF train sooner, but it took me nearly a month to pass what the D&C didnít take. It was absolutely heart wrenching and emotionally draining.
We finally started our third cycle and transferred our remaining embryos and received another BFP. My first beta was on Friday, September 14th and came back at 91, our second beta was only 125, so I was told to come back Wednesday (yesterday) to see if Iíd made any more progress. Sadly, my beta came back at 48 - another miscarriage.. Iím so devastated. I feel like this is never going to happen for us. I feel so lost, angry, and sad all at the same time..
We've decided to take a breather for a few weeks before we decide when we're going to start treatment again and whether or not we'll go back to our current RE... I just can't believe that this has happened.

Able to get pregnant since, every month feels like another loss to me, I get my period and I just cry , lost angry and sad , I know those feelings all too well. last month my doctor referred me to a fertility specialist, but I've been afraid to make the appointment , I'm afraid of hearing bad news ...
