So we all know I kinda stalked my DE a little bit. Not bad but a little - I did get a glimpse of her in the parking lot one early morning visit at the RE.
Anyways - her first DE cycle resulted in twin pregnancy but sadly only one birth that was a boy
Her second DE cycle was me - two perfect baby boys
I just found out her 3rd and last DE cycle - didn't result in any viable Embryos to transfer.
I am heartbroken for that third couple... They picked her based on my results and they were not the same for them. Makes me remember, as if I don't already, how incredible blessed and lucky I am.
Stopped BCP & began TTC in January 2013- no ovulation, no cycles for 3 months
May-July 2013- provera cycles with no ovulation
August/September 2013-50 mg clomid cycles with no ovulation
October 2013- SA revealed low motility--referred to RE
January 2014- DHs repeat SA came back "normal"! I was diagnosed with PCOS
February 2014- IUI #1 on Valentine's Day with 2 mature follicles- BFN
March 2014- BCP to clear up cysts
April 2014- IUI #2 on 4/9/14 with 3 mature follicles and 3 catching up! BFP at 10dpiui!!!!!! So thankful!!! Beta #1 @ 13 DPO- 167; Beta #2 @ 15 DPO- 384!
True - I just so hate this process doesn't work for everyone. It should. It really should. It's bad enough we have to go through it and when we do the crap needs to work for everyone specially with these **** prices. I get so fired up about that.
It's not like we are trying to build a drug impire just grow our familes. It should be simple. I want what I have now for all of us and anyone else that wants it. Those dummies that don't want it to stop being so freaking fertile. I guess it's not for me to understand cause it sure doesn't make a bit of sense.
Me: Autoimmune (Hashimotos and Fibromyalgia), vitamin D and calcium deficiency. Treated with Synthroid, supplements, TCM and acupuncture.
DH: Severe MFI (low counts, low motility, poor morphology and high antibodies), likely caused by poor liver function. Treated with Clomid to increase total counts.
DD: Conceived after 1 year of TTC with progesterone to correct LPD (likely caused by undiagnosed thyroid dysfunction). Born Aug 2009 via c/s after an induction due to pre-e and HELLP.
TTC #2 since Oct10 with an early loss in Aug 2011. Post-wash counts are too low for IUI to be successful, so moving on to IVF/ICSI in May 2014!
IVF/ICSI #1 (May 2014): Estrogen priming and antagonist protocol, including acupuncture and prayer!
17/05/14 - Baseline looks good, start Gonal-F 225iu and Luveris 75iu

29/05/14 - 13 fertilized!!! All are looking great still on day 3, so we're going to blast!
02/06/14 - Transferred one 1BC blast, with 3 other blasts and 3 morulas to watch and freeze
03/06/14 - All embryos have arrested. None to freeze
09/06/14 - Faint BFP at home at 7dp5dt!!!!!
10/06/14 - Beta?
They had no embryos to transfer?!!? Oh...I'm so sad for them. How devastating to get to the point of using DE and thinking "this is it" to be so let down.
My heart personally breaks for that couple. I hope that they are strong because I may not be in that situation. Wow!
Do you know if they get another cycle free or discounted because there were no embryos?
