Topic: BFP for Baby#2
I don't want to go into too much emotional detail because it's still very early and I don't want to jinx anything, but we are so ecstatic (when we aren't bracing for the worst)! If everything goes well, we will be a beautiful family of four! We are so in love with that. We used the same donor, same carrier as baby #1.
Vitex. I really believe that was the key for us. This was our 4th cycle trying and the first cycle we used vitex. Last pregnancy, we got our BFP the first cycle we used Vitex, too. I wanted to wait this time to see if that was coincidence or causation, but now two for two, so Vitex gets the credit.
We used (1) vial of ICI at 24ish hrs past. Didn't tempt this cycle at all, but after 3 cycles of temping we were confident ov took place the day (or night) after positive OPK.
