Any success stories with a single blast?

Post by ammu » Mon Apr 14, 2008 4:21 pm

I am on my 3rd IVF cycle now after 2 failed IVF and 3 failed IUI cycles. We did PGD this time to eliminate abnormalities although I have no known issues other than my age factor (35). Out of 8 eggs, 6 were PGDd and only 1 was found normal. Transferred it on day 5; now on 2ww.

Has anybody had any success with a single embryo transfer? Is there anything that can be done to improve the quality of the eggs? I am trying hard to keep my spirits up, keeping my faith in God, but sometimes I feel like I am loosing it.

Please share your story. I am trying to find a ray of hope somewhere to get me through this difficult journey.

Love and Good Luck to all!

just had our 1st beta after a FET with 1 embryo (it was all we had left after our 1st child), but it was all we needed. God planted the seed in my heart that this would be our 2nd child and it turns out it will be. 1st beta is 800, so we'll keep praying that the # doubles 2 days from now. so have faith faith faith and pray pray pray and if it doesn't work this time have faith that God knows the perfect time for you. i hope it's this time though....this is a touch thing to have to wait for!

I was in the same boat as you and unfortunatley this boat ride is something you have to go through mentally and IT SUCKS. I had 17eggs retrieved all arrested on day 5! Got a call on day 6 saying one has hatched and to come in for transfer..... Ammu I am pleased to tell you I am 14 weeks preggo. SO YES it can happen... And it will just promise me you wone do like i did and go NUTS during the 2ww.. Heck I went nuts during the 2 ww and the 4 ww for the U/S, then I went nuts until the Nuchal test and then I went nuts when I went to my regular ob and he told me I will only see him once a month! when I was at the IVF clinic I got u/s every week! This road doesnt end until you are staring in the eyes of your little one....... I wish you well and keep us posted
