Hi everyone....i'm new to this message board.

i'm starting PGD soon and desperate to hear from any mum who had a baby with PGD or expecting a baby after having PGD.

Hope some mums would like to share their stories with me :D

big hope: I just did my first PGD & am now 7 weeks pregnant with boy/girl twins! That's one of the perks of PGD, you will know what gender your embryos are :) We started out with 15 eggs at retrieval, 9 fertilized appropriately, all 9 made it to day 5, but only 2 were genetically normal. So, we transferred both normals & they both stuck & seem to be doing very well. We did PGD because of recurrent miscarriages. I have had 5 miscarriages with no live births. PGD seems to have been the answer for us! Good luck!!!

Hi Shelly.....thanks so much for ur response. Twins...how exciting :lol:! Congrats!!! I am so happy for you! nice 2 hear that it works :wink:

My husband and I r both carriers of a genetic trait, which if the baby had both of them, she/he would be having a very serious genetic disease!!

We both provided blood this morning and we'll have to wait for 3 months for the DNA analysis to be done....too long...can't wait till it's done!

Good luck to you and take care of urself...and the twins of course :wink:

Hope 2 hear from u again.
