I am on my second cycle and am really hoping that it works this time around. Is it common for it to take a few IVF tries?

well, both our IVF cycles worked, but they knew I could get pg since we'd done it twice before on our own. Granted, they didn't end well. So this time really is the test, provided it/they implanted in the right place.

Good luck!!!!

We've done 4 attempts (2 IVF, 2 FET) with no success. We have one final attempt planned for the fall. So, I'm kinda curious about this too.

I gotten pregnant before (but miscarried), so we're just kinda baffled right now.

I am 33 (just turned) and we were pretty much unexplained.
DH had some good count and some low counts
so that may be a factor and we just uncovered uterine scarring which was probaby a factor too

If all goes as planned it should be around 7/20.

I was 34 when we first started IVF. I had a blocked tube and DH had some morphology issues. It took us 6 cycles to get preggo. We did 4 fresh and 2 frozen. My RE was unable to figure out why it took us so many tries to get a BFP. On our last cycle we had the embryos go through PGD and discovered that out of 17 embryos, only 3 were genetically normal. All the others had severe chromosomal abnormalities. We put 2 in the freezer in case we needed to find a surrogate and transfered the 3 we had in the freezer from previous cycles as well as the 3rd healthy embryo from the fresh cycle. I swear my DS is the fresh embie we transfered. Knowing that embryo was a boy and was healthy... I'm sure he's the little dude that stuck around! Good luck to you guys!

Good Luck to you all. We have not done IVF yet. Not to that point. But I hope that this next try gives you your BFP!!!
