Earlier in 2016, Oregon Reproductive Medicine selected a couple to be a part of our unique Fertility Journeys project. We follow up with Chris and Anne, who after repeated attempts to become pregnant, and a failed shared egg donor IVF cycle in the UK, are near the end of Anne’s second trimester having become pregnant following donor egg IVF at ORM.

Anne writes…

The 6 week scan had been the first emotional hurdle for us. Previously during our first IVF attempt a year before, we had an empty pregnancy sac scanned at 9 weeks, so having a tiny foetus forming meant everything! The most amazing fact was that she already had a beating heart at that very early stage even though she was the size of a grain of rice!

This scan we had done at another private clinic, as the NHS monitoring would only start after 12 weeks.

Following that, the rounds of estradiol and progesterone testing continued and I relayed the results to Lauren at ORM. My results continued to be good and I was able to wean down off my medications. I was still having injections in my bottom though the amount had reduced, and also progesterone vaginal pessaries. In the UK, only progesterone pessaries seem to be prescribed, and not progesterone injections.
