Success story

Never give up.

I had my egg retrieval about 2 weeks ago and 6 eggs was retrieved. The next day, the clinic called to inform me all fertilised but only one was good for transfer. That was on Saturday. I cried the whole weekend and knew it was over. Worst part was, I was afraid the embryo will stop growing by Monday which was the transfer day.. I praid to God and believed a miracle could still happen. I went for transfer on Monday and the doctor told me my embryo was very good 8 cells. I knew my chances were like 10%. My Blood test is on this Friday 5th I couldn't wait anymore. I tested on Sunday i had a very faint positive and taught must still be the trigger shots. Yester I bought 5 pregnancy test tested it and it was positive. This morning, I tested again in the morning and was very positive I'm only 8dp3dt. (I live in Germany so our time zone may differ) I'm just writing to encourage any Woman trying to conceive through IVF not to give up hope no matter how many embryos you have, miracles still happens.

My husband and I have been trying to conceive baby number 3 since August 2018

I learned during my second time ttc that my mucus is very thick so it’s harder for sperm to pass.
I heard about the Mucinex trick,
Very first time with baby number two using it after a year trying we for pregnant with my now 2.5 yr old daughter
This time, very first time I used it this month, for baby number three and got my BFP at 9dpo very faint positive, I have tested everyday since and they continue to get darker!
100% convinced that Mucinex is my fertility drug.
We see the dr next week!
Baby wishes for all of you still trying ??

Success story

Had 1st Ultrasound done!!

FINALLY!!!! After a total of 5 miscarriages (3 since ttc #3), we FINALLY have a baby with a heartbeat and measuring on time!! Baby #3 is actually measuring a day ahead than I predicted!! EDD 3/29/21 now!! TTC #3 has not been easy. We had a chemical that almost required surgery because my hcg levels wouldn't drop after already bleeding and passing everything, a blighted ovum at 7 weeks, then a late chemical pregnancy. I have the genetic disorder MTHFR (2 copies of same gene) and I've been taking all my vitamins needed for this, so it's been a rough ride. My first two losses happened before we had our two boys. 19 week missed miscarriage was our first heart wrenching experience. Then a chemical. Then we were blessed with our oldest son, Tim. Wyatt, our youngest, came without any issues and first try not sure how that happened So we assumed #3 would be a breeze since Wyatt was so easy.... were we ever wrong But, after almost 2 years, we finally have a sticky, growing, healthy rainbow bean in there and I can't wait to meet her/him

BABY DUST LADIES!! Never give up!!

Success story

7 years and then an miracle occurred

I wanted to share my story to give other couples ttc hope. I had a daughter in 2012, after having her I wanted another child, My husband and I tried for years to no avail. sometime last year I decided that with our age it was highly unlikely. I ovulated every month , all the test came back normal. I did try medication to help my eggs mature faster, all attempts failed for years. I honestly stopped tracking my ovulation. I stopped saying its go time to my husband. Eventually we accepted the idea that it probably wasn't going to happen for us. We had a beautiful child together , so we chose to be thankful for having her. Although in all honesty it stings to realize , something you wanted so bad for so long , a dream you fought for , had to end, we had to let go of our wish. It was sad . On April the 3rd 2020 , I found an ovulation test in my drawer and thought what the heck , just for kicks, I tested. It wasn't positive but I could tell it wasn't far off. (or so it seemed). I let it go and about six days later , I had one romantic night . Of course my mind didn't even think back to the test ( for hope) because I thought I had already ovulated. To be quite honest I had tracked my ovulation for 7 years and it never helped. on April 18th 2020 , I went to sleep and had a dream about a dear lady I loved whom had passed and My dad whom had passed a year ago, They were standing side by side , smiling and she handed me a baby in a white blanket. I took the baby and my dad touched my hand and I could just feel this over whelming amount of love , he slowly walked away and she slowly disappeared. When I woke up , I went into the kitchen and told my husband , that I needed to buy a pregnancy test . I remember the look on his face like what? huh? I was like I had a dream that I was given a baby , lets go. So Before he finished his breakfast I had him out the door. I didn't want to spend a lot of money , because a major part of me thought it wasn't possible. Also a part of me thought I'm doing this because of a dream. I didn't want to put myself through another negative test . However there was this nagging thought, I never felt so much love from a dream before. My dads hand felt real. I drove to the dollar tree and got a test, went to Walmart and got the cheap .88 cent test. I came home and took the test and I saw a faint pink line. I told my husband, I think I'm pregnant. I handed him the test and he said I see it. I shared it on this site and people were so positive. I'm thankful for receiving this blessing. I pray for each person on this site. I know the struggles, the tears, the not another month, not another negative test. The I swear I see a line, even when no-one else see s it. I know the mental toll it has on our mind and the pain that twist in our hearts. Its a hard , tough , journey , However if you get the opportunity to become pregnant , Your childs story was about the strongest desire for them to be with you. I pray you find strength, courage, and self love no matter the outcome. It is possible , it can happen even when you think its impossible. Best wishes . Baby dust to all

Success story

Never give up hope - miracles are possible

Hi everyone.
Just a story of my journey; don’t ever give up. I never.!

I began ttc quite some time ago -
My first mc was Dec 2013. Advised likely chemical.
Long story short; after ttc for a long time; not successful

investigations etc, I eventually got a diagnosis August 2017 for endometriosis. Had surgery to remove.
Had all the tests beforehand and all hormone levels came back fine and partner fine.
Repeated after surgery and again all ok. No issues identified.

Told I had unexplained infertility. Was ttc over a year prior to diagnosis of endometriosis.
Told I’d unlikely conceive naturally or without help!

Referred for HSG test and to fertility consultant Feb 2018.
Low and behold - at appointment they do urine sample - pregnant! Discharged from them.
Sadly ended in mc 9 weeks April 2018..
Large bleed within sac and baby hb stopped.
Surgical removal due to issues and risk as I’m rhesus negative.
Tests carried out - nothing abnormal identified - ruled as a likely loss of natural cause.
Gave all clear ttc again.

Booked back with consultant - again got my BFP week before my appointment!

Referred for beta hcg and ultrasound -
Beta hcg taken two days apart - all fine and increased well.
told had pregnancy of unknown location at scan and likely ectopic - sent home and scan rebooked for two weeks after.
Attended scan - confirmed I had a likely continuing NORMAL pregnancy. Dated perfect at 6wks 3 days. Over the moon.

Fast forward -
first dating scan received after all booking in with midwife etc...
Was very scared as had been severely affected by morning sickness and terrified something would be wrong - scan went perfectly well and baby measured 3 days ahead at 12+6!

20 week scan - all ok and baby growing well. Still measuring ahead - growth charted as average.

Currently 25+2 with my miracle rainbow..
Pregnancy going well and looking forward to welcoming our bundle of joy.
DD 19th april 2019
