Talking Good news (pg mentioned)

After 4 years of TTC, I am pregnant.

We took the plunge at the beginning of September and did IVF. We told only our parents that we were doing it - no one else knew (except for my friend I met at the clinic since she was about a week behind me also doing IVF). We didn't want to get anyone's hopes up. My retrieval was at the beginning of the month and they ended up getting 25 eggs. Of those 25, 17 fertilized and made it to the 3 day transfer. The doctor put back 2 "perfect" embryos. On the 5th day, 7 embryos made it to freeze. So we have some ice babies. The day after the transfer I developed a mild case of OHSS, but by the time I went for my blood work 10 days after the transfer, I was so sick. I was very nauseous and bloated. The ultrasound revealed ovaries the size of tennis balls. We got the news the next day but at the same time the doctor told me he was admitting me to the hospital that after noon. I still wasn't a severe case but he wanted to be cautious - I ended up being there for a week and just got home a couple of days ago. I won't go into details but it wasn't the most pleasant stay except for the great nurses.

We are excited but cautious since it is still early. Thank you all for your support over the years.

OMG Erinn!!!!!!! You sneaky Miss for keeping it secret! Tut tut!!

From what I hear OHSS can be a good sign in terms of pregnancy(although very nasty indeed). I think you're about the 3rd person I've hard that had it and was PG!!

I can't believe it after all this time Erinn - you and Brett are expecting!! I bet your parents are so chuffed too!

Hell, I'm chuffed!! You've given me hope Erinn! I thought us long-haulers never got lucky like this!

I am so darn chuffed for you, really I am - sending you a huge cyber hug across the miles hon!
