Back Again

Hi all-

I used to frequent these boards but I had to take a break to try to regain some sense of normal. I just thought I would reintroduce myself, because I realize that the help and support that I used to get here is much needed, once again.

Our TTC journey for miracle #2 began almost 3 years ago. I have had 7 IUIs with all sorts of different drug cocktails- all failed. I did have one chemical pregnancy in Oct. 2010- with clomid, no iui.

I am currently in the 2WW- I am 8dp5dt- 2 frozen blasts. We underwent IVF #1 in October/November- 14 eggs retrieved and all but 3 were immature. Only 1 made it to embryo stage, and we transferred that at 3 days post retrieval. Unsuccessful attempt.

IVF #2 with ICSI began in December, and I sadly got severe OHSS. After retrieving 30 eggs, 19 fertilized (11 with ICSI). Then we were able to vitrify 5 blasts and 2 morulas. I was hospitalized for several days, and of course this meant that I could not transfer. The dr also decided that we should wait out a cycle to try to let my body normalize from the OHSS and all of the meds.

So, here we are- FET #1 was done on 2/10 and I am extremely anxious this time. This may be the most complicated 2WW EVER! I do, however, have cramps and breast tenderness, which can be a sign of just about anything- progesterone, AF, or even the long awaited BFP.

Anyway... I am back! I hope that everyone I knew here previously has found resolution.
