Hi all,
This is my story- 25yo, DH 30, married 5 years. Both finished graduate school, have stable jobs, bought a home and ready to start a family!
TTC naturally with OPK, charting, temps, etc for 18 months. (longest months ever! I hated all the waiting and wondering.)
After testing on both of us that lasted several months, found that DH had bad numbers is all areas (count, mobility, morph) due to double vericoceles! His numbers were DECREASING with each sample. Urologist said that with his numbers IUI was a waste of time. So it was vericocele surgery or IVF! This diagnosis was so hard on my sweet DH, and still is.
As for me, mild polycystic but no other issues.
After a long couple months of discussing and deciding, we are jumping into our first IVF cycle! (with DH to have the surgery later in the fall).

We are both so excited. Just retrieved 18 eggs today! Still feeling bloated and a little crampy but otherwise great. Now just praying and hoping for growing embryos at the lab! Waiting for news tomorrow. And then implant 2 on Fri (day 3) or Sun (day 5).

Glad to have found a great forum with friendly ladies. DH is amazing through all of this, and our families are so loving, but just don't understand how hard it is! I don't have very many friends/family members who have gone through infertility so I sometimes feel all alone in the world of easy/quick/naturally conceivers with no support group!

Happy to be here. And happy thoughts to all of you!

Welcome Mary!!!! Thanks for sharing your story! (PS join us on the thread below too, most girls are posting there!!)

That is a fantastical retrieval They are with the most expensive babysitters ever now! My last txfer was a Friday 3dt as well. But with that many eggies, I bet you will go to 5. Doesn't matter, either way, sounds like you are doing great!

I am on my 2nd IVF...nothing they can find wrong with us...just waited too long maybe...we ttc almost 4 years (5 failed IUI's in there) before we decided to move on...for the 1st IVF I got 4 eggs and txferred 2 on a 3dt and got my darling daughter, this time around I had 11 eggs, txferred 2 on a 3dt, they were better quality and cell size than my DD and we got pg, but lost it sadly after the first u/s....so I just got AF yesterday, the first since my miscarriage and I'm waiting to do a FET (frozen embryo transfer)....we had 2 eggs that made it to freeze this last go around.

I start bcps tomorrow!!! Welcome to the board
