It has been a really long time since I have posted anything. Mostly because someone told me, if you are doing something important just keep it to yourself. Don’t tell anyone. Bad juju and such.
Did it help??? No
My first DE cycle was a bfn.
Just a quick summary of the cycle. My donor is a beautiful 25year old unproven donor
They collected 21eggs of which only 12 were mature. 11 Fertilised and 8 made it to blast stage. 2 blasts were transferred on day 5 and 3 were frozen.
First bad sign – with me not her. She did amazing. A few days before ER I have some spotting, very light and only if I wipe. The day of her egg retrieval I have a bleed that lasts about 2 hours. I call my RE and he calls me in to scan. On the scan everything looks fine so we decide to go ahead. I start PIO and no more spotting. ER goes smoothly, I go home and have some KFC (its a tradition) and park off on the couch. The next day I carry on as usual except obviously no heavy lifting.
1dp5dt – Cramping begins
2dp5dt – Stuffy nose and temperature…. generally just felt sick
3dp5dt – sore throat
4dp5dt – my eczema around my eyes flare up so badly I can barely open my eyes
6dp5dt – bfn on HPT
8dp5dt – bfn on HPT – at this point I knew
9dp5dt – beta BFN
Now I am no expert but by the look of it, it seems like I had a major immune reaction. I briefly chatted to my RE about it over the phone and he is not convinced.
I am seeing him on 21 Oct to discuss my protocol and hopefully I can convince him to do an immune protocol
