- Yeah! It sounds like things are moving along nicely! If more than what you want to transfer make it to day 5 in good condition, will they refreeze them? We transferred 3 day 5 blasts. But, 2 looked great and one looked horrible. They said they couldn't freeze the horrible one, so it was either transfer it or throw it out. Against their recommendations, I transferred it. There was a shadow of a collapsing 3rd gestational sac at the first u/s, so that was probably it. Luckily, it worked out for us and I'm glad I transferred it and gave it a chance. Now, I feel like I know for sure that it couldn't have made it on it's own. But, we'll never know "for sure." Maybe the crappy one made a so-far healthy looking twin? And, one of the perfect ones would've miscarried? But, that does not seem like the most likely scenario.
and anyone else suffering from RPL - Just for history, this is my 9th pregnancy. My first one we easily conceived my son. One try during the month, problem free pregnancy. While still nursing my son, I got pg with my dd on our third month trying, no problems. Then we tried for #3
. We, again, got pregnant quickly and found out at 11 weeks, that it was a blighted ovum. No baby formed. Miscarried at 14 weeks. Just one of those things..... We were pregnant again before my HCG made it to zero and watched it move way too slowly back up. It was a chemical and I started miscarrying at 5 weeks. There was some belief that it may have been ectopic, but it was never confirmed. It was then that I saw a specialist who ran all the tests. No problems. We waited while all the testing was run and then started trying again. Three months later we were pregnant. This time with monoamniotic identical twins. This type of twins has only a 50% survival rate. We were not in the winnig 50%. They were chromosonally normal 46XX. A few months later we got pregnant again with another early loss at about 5 weeks (low and slow betas). More specialist, more testing, no problems. Then I started seeing an RE. We got pregnant again with medicated TI and miscarried again at 5 weeks, again low and slow betas. Even more specialists, even more testing, no confirmed problems. I switched RE's and did IVF. We put back 3 day 3 blasts. Slightly low and slow betas. One bean implanted. It was always behind. At 7 weeks, there was no heartbeat and we did an embryoscopy, biopsy and D&C. Confirmed chomosonally abnormal, full triplody, 69XXX.
1: Healthy DS
2: Healthy DD
3: Probably chromosomally abnormal
4: Possible ectopic
5: Monoamniotic twins, low survival rate
6: Probably chromosomally abnormal
7: Probably chromosomally abnormal
8: Known chromosomally abnormal, 69XXX
9: Current pregnancy
My personal final diagnosis is bad luck and a overly receptive uterus. Whereas, most women's uterus' will naturally reject an extremely choromosonally abnormal embryo, it appears mine does not, IMO. They have done studies that show women with recurrent pregnancy loss have a shorter time to conception than women without this problem. This hints that some RPL women have a non-discriminating uterus, therefore have more miscarriages. And, as we all get older, we're more likely to make chomosonally abnormal embryos which just compounds the problem.
