hi ladies, i wonder if i can join you? i've got quite an IF history but i 'won the lottery' and got naturally pregnant while awaiting another IVF cycle... that's crazy in my world, but it happened..
i don't feel like a 'normie' pregnant person, and although i didn't cycle to get here... i feel like it's with the 'ivf'ers' is where i belong.. would anyone mind?
i'm due around sept 18 (so weird not having a DD that's down to the 'exact minute', lol),, and i've already had 3 u/s 's as i 've been bleeding, but i'm 8 wks now and feeling optimistic..
i've been active on another forum with some cycle buddies from my specific clinic, but many of them are still struggling to get PG and i don't feel right sharing my 'being PG fears, symptoms, issues".. i've been very active on this board over the years and made great friends while i cycled for my 3rd time and got our son.
i've had 1 cancelled IVF due to poor response, 2 full IVF's (m/c at 12 wks, and then my son), and 1 failed FET.. i was recommended to go donor eggs instead of sticking with my own due to my DOR and poor response to stims, but i persevered with my own and i'm one of the lucky ones that it really paid off for.
btw, dallas i'm so glad your beta more than doubled, great sign! and lou- CONGRATULATIONS! i've followed your story on here and i'm so happy for you
please let me know, thanks karen
