My CCRM IVF Journey

Our successful journey through IVF #2 at one of the world's top fertility clinics

9dp5dt (Beta Day!)

Posted by auntiem10 on January 22, 2011

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers!!!!!!

Our first beta is 278!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jennifer from CCRM called with the results shortly before noon my time. She said, “Congratulations!” I said, “Oh my God, are you serious?!” She said, “Yes, your test came back positive.” I said, “What was my HCG level?!” She said, “We were looking for a level of 50, and yours is 278!” I immediately started bawling. I couldn’t help myself. My DH and I have both been shedding tears of absolute joy. We can’t believe it!!!!!!!

My instructions are to stay on the same medications and see if the level doubles on Monday. I already have an appointment for 7:30 a.m. So we will just go from here!!!!!

We are still in shock, so I’m sorry I am short on words! : ) This is the happiest day of our lives. Hopefully the good luck will continue.

    Congratulations! I am so happy for you!!! Thanks for sharing your journey. Your story gives me hope. Like you, I am also an “Auntie Em,” (although quite a bit older). And our last cycle at another clinic was not successful. We did not have any embryos to freeze and our RE spoke of donor eggs. My husband and I have decided this is pretty much our last shot so we are beginning a cycle with CCRM and our doctor is also Dr. Surrey. We are planning an FET hopefully in April. Thanks again for all your insights.
