Only 2

Yes, I will only have two mature follies by ER. Some people may think that I am crazy but I am going foward with ER and hopefully ET. I have one more day of injectible stims and I go back again tomorrow for b/w and u/s. Most likely, I will do hcg shot tomorrow night and ER on Sunday.

I did get to see my RE today as he was doing monitoring rounds at the clinic this morning. He asked if I wanted to go through with only two follicles and I said yes. He smiled and said ok.

I am obsessing that I am crazy to go through all the effort of ER with only two follies but what do I have to lose? Sure I will lose some $$ but not that much as my insurance pays for most procedures but we will still end up paying about $4k total. My problem is that I will reget not trying if I don't go through with it and convert to IUI. I don't want any regrets.

Am I crazy? Anyone ever heard of someone getting pregnant after only having 2 follies during IVF?

When my last cycle was canceled, my RE told me he had patients who were able to conceive with only a couple of eggs. Remember it only takes one!!! I am thinking about you!!!

Last time, when I had 7 or 8 follicles, we decided not to go through with ER on the advice of the doctor. But one of the main considerations for us was $. My insurance doesn't cover any part of IVF but it covers most of IUI. So we stressed over the money knowing that we may move on to donor egg and would rather put our $ toward that. However, there's a part of me that wishes we tried with my eggs. Maybe it would have worked. Maybe not. We'll never know. I think there is something good about trying everything. And it only takes one embryo. You're not crazy.

GOOD LUCK!!!

Hey there - you are not crazy!

My first cycle I did ER with only one follicle - the clinic (in London) told me I was crazy - and I may well end up with nothing. I went through with it - and got my one egg - no baby tho.

I did another cycle (in Sydney) - and went into ER with four follicles - still sadly ended up with only one embryo - and again no baby. I am going to have one more go - and if that doesn't work I will turn to donor eggs - but at least I will always know I gave it my best. I am hoping good things for your two - GO FOR IT.
