Post subject: Thrilled to be expecting Baby number 2!!
Hi everyone, I started on the vasectomy reversal thread, then came back to the IVF thread and now I thought I would drop in and give you all an update!!
We had a failed IVF attempt last year after my DH was diagnosed with azoospermia - all this after obliviously trying for 2 years! The DR said the quality of the tiny amount of sperm he sometimes had was so poor that she didn't think IVF would work for us without DH having a biopsy. This year we decided to change IVF Drs, the new DR gave my DH some blood tests and said his hormones levels were all low and prescribed him 4 shots of HCG over 4 weeks.
So my husband has been on these hcg shots to try and get a sperm count for the ivf that was due to start 23rd June. I had a cyst aspiration 2 month ago, af shortly after and then ovulated two weeks ago. We still tried naturally as we have for the last two years even tho we knew my dh didn't have sperm because like everyone says it only takes one. Well on sunday I had the shock of my life!! I missed my period and had a positive pregnancy test whoop whoop!! I couldn't believe it!! I still can't!!
I woke sunday morning wondering why af hadn't arrived and was fed up that Ivf would be delayed again. In the meantime my dh was at the clinic getting a sperm test done as we were due to start Ivf that day or the next. 22nd June was the day my af should have started in the morning. I didn't test till 23rd because I thought my dh has had a sperm count of nil and then one of 3000 non swimming, I can't be pregnant. I eventually caved did the test, screamed out in shock, called the dr and had a blood test which confirmed it and later my dh called with his results - he's only got 42 million sperm!!!!!! So now I know how it happened lol!!! I think this dr Fakih Ivf in Dubai is a special good luck charm for us as we had a consultation with him in 2009 not knowing I was already pregnant and now just as we were due to start with him this time round we've had to cancel again lol!!! So I can't believe our luck and just wanted to let you all know that even with low sperm counts its still possible to get pg as I have proved twice!!
Oh and by the way I'm due march 1st
