We had an ectopic pregnancy in August 2016 and after that we struggled to get pregnant for months. We started our IVF journey in September 2017. We had two failed IUI's and then started the process of IVF. We had a successful egg retrieval — produced over 30 eggs. We were so lucky that so many were produced and many were viable. Due to producing so many eggs my body went into hyper stimulation and our journey was put on hold. I had to have two liters of fluid drained from my body. So needless to say this was devastating for us. We waited until my next cycle and starting the injections for IVF in January 2018. We then had our IVF scheduled for February and lucky we had success and became pregnant!!!
