    @oluwakemi Ya right!! Lemme drop it as e dey hot :yahoo:   :haha:

    Name: Darlynnn
    Age: 27(at the time of the cycle) 28 presently
    How long have you been TTC: 1yr and half
    Diagnosis or any known issues: Hormonal imbalance and Male factor
    Treatments you tried before IVF: None aside basic investigations and hormonal drugs
    How many IVF cycles did you do before success: None
    Are you using donor eggs or sperm: Yes
    Protocol (meds taken): Long protocol
    How many follicles at ER: 22
    How many eggs retrieved: 22 eggs collected; 13 were mature
    How many eggs fertilized: 9
    How many days between ER and ET: 4days
    How many and quality/rating of embryos/blasts transferred: 7 embabies, 3 of which were blastocysts
    How many days bed rest: None required but i took things easy
    Symptoms or issues during 2WW: NOTHING until i started bloating seriously (yes you guessed right…severe pregnancy induced OHSS)i looked 5months pregnant at 12dp4dt. I wasn’t close to my ivf clinic so the Dr referred me to an ART specialist in my state, he confirmed OHSS and did a minor surgical procedure of inserting pigtail catheter inserted in my abdomen and it drained 6 litres of ascites on the first day giving instant relief… altogether it drained a total of about 20liters. Later on, i started vomiting & dry heaving, was rushed to the hospital…I had low blood pressure 60/40, immediate admission and took about 20 drips in total or so. Also had lower back pain and needed penta injection to calm it down so i can sleep. Doses were limited cos of the pregnancy. Well that happened during and after the 2WW.
    What day you got your BFP: 11dp4dt
    HPT before blood test: Sure!! First one at 8dp4dt was BFN, so i went to ClearBlue and checked again one night when the bloating got serious.. BFP!!
    Number of first beta: 1331
    Number of babies: 2 but 1 now (twin B stopped growing at 8wks) :sadangel:
    Anything else you would have wanted to know before you started this process: Nothing really. TTC had me numb so i was floating through the entire process. Thank God for being ever so faithful.

     

    If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. :) :dust:
