Veronica is my IRL friend who has been struggling with secondary infertility. She is awesome. You would love her.
Here are a few details of her story:
- Had a successful pregnancy with OE, then Secondary IF
- Moved on to DE after failed infertility treatment
- Had first DE transfer of handsome 5-day blastocyst on 01/07.
- Nice initial betas: 1000+ at 16dp5dt and 2300+ at 18dp5dt.
Veronica went in for her first u/s today at 6w1d. She measured on target, but there was only a very small yolk sack, and no sign of a fetal pole. Beta was 12000+
My sense from what I've read is that it could go either way at this point. Her local doc thinks it could be a blighted ovum. But I'm guessing it could also be a slow start. She's due for another u/s next week, which will hopefully determine what is going on.
Friends, if you have stories of things going well after a similar start, it would help Veronica to read stories of hope. If you have a story like that or have read someone's else's blog with a similar start, can you please link it in your comment. She reads my blog regularly and will be so grateful to read your thoughts.
