after ivf this year, i was pregnant with triplets. at week 14 problems were discovered. the identical twins had twin to twin transfusion syndrome. at week 19 we lost the recipient twin. at week 26 i gave birth to twin girls weighing 1lb 15oz & 1lb 10oz. after 10 weeks in the neo natel unit, we lost the smaller twin, chloe to multi organ failure. we now have a beautiful baby girl at home. she weighs 7lb now. she is quite likely to have a few health issues as she gets older.
if i were to recommend ivf, i would say only have 1 embryo transfered. the likelyhood of having more than 1 baby is high & the problems increase so much for multiple births. the pain we have suffered losing our chloe will stay with us forever. the pain she suffered, is quite unbearable for me to describe.
good luck to anyone having ivf.
congratulations and sorry for your loses,i lost my first baby in 2004 at 21weeks and even though i had to see my son into the world and see him out as time has gone by the pain heals and i now have 3 lovely children and one on the way, i look at my children and appriciate them so much but i will never forget my son and in time you will put your babies at the bck of your mind and things wont be as heart breaking as they are right now
Found this website and read your message, you always feel no one could ever understand so it was nice to read I wasn't going mad.x
Yep the emotion you go through is un describable ! and not only is it emotional but physically demanding to.
After 2 failed attempts we were given a 5% chance for the 3rd go. Any % to us was worth a shot, but mentally prepared for it not to work, however we had 2 embryos put back sadly lost 1 early on but the other stayed to fight another day then week then month and at 35 weeks came into the world, Georgie is now 6 months old and we still can't believe it, but never do i forget the one one we lost.xx
