hmmmm - do you want our stats if we are still waiting for our baby?

Age: 24 & 26
TTC: ~3years
Other treatments before IVF: a round of Clomid before we discovered our severe male factor and need for IVF/ICSI
# of IVF cycles before for BFP: BFP on my first and fourth cycle - both were losses. Hoping that #6 is the lucky one
How many transfered: either 1 or 2
POAS: Always!
How many stuck: 2 when I transferred 2 and 1 when I transferred 1 - but then again, there have been times when the 1 or 2 didn't stick at all
8 IVF+6 FET=6 BFN+8 BFP =

-b/g twins 22w (12.09)
-mc 10w (9.10)
-Micha (7.19-24.11) & Asaf (7.19-28.11) born at 24w
-mc 5wk (2.12)
-no HB at 18w (10.12)
-BO (4.13)-
-mc 6wk (9.13)

last attempt - donor sperm - baby girl born healthy July 2014
