ONLY TAKES ONE

Post by Jen1d » Fri Mar 17, 2006 10:16 pm

:lol: Hi girls

Some inspiration and hope for us all.

Was at the hospital for my scan today and the nurse told me about a lady who has just gone through ivf.

She is 40 years old, had problems all the way through her ivf cycles. Was now going through her 5th cycle with yet more problems and did not respond to the drugs. She eventually only got one egg from her follicles, which was not the greatest quality but it did fertilize. The nurses were sure every step of the way that the cycle would be abandoned and after putting the one embryo back they thought it would turn out to be a poor result, but yes, you guessed it -------BFP :lol: .

So there is hope for us all. It is not the quantity that count or maybe even the quality at times. Just one embie will work with lots of luck and a help from mother nature.

Good luck girls and stay positive, we will get our bundles of joy one day :wink: .

Thanks for your post Jen. It's reassuring to know that it can / does work sometimes, against all odds.

Hey Jen, missed you on the over 40 crowd (even though we know you are only an honourary member, we still miss you)!!

Thanks for your post above, it's great to know that it does work for some, when the odds are stacked. Like Traci's post, we know and hope that you only need one for it to work, but it gives great comfort to us all to hear success stories like this one.

Lots love
