If your first DC is the result of multiple IVF attempts...

How many rounds did it take to get DC2?

Drugs being delivered tomorrow and I'm feeling optimistic as I know it can work...but it did take four attempts to get DS1. Would love to hear anyone who's been through similar. We're using the protocol that gave us our DS, but at a different clinic this time.

DS is 10 months and was from cycle number 5 (2 own egg and 3 donor egg cycles)

Sorry you said DC2 missed that, DC2 is currently underway as I'm 10 weeks but it was actually a random surprise pregnancy

1 complete failure followed by 4 ICSI to get DC1. Three rounds with frozen embryos for DC2...by which time I was 42! Good luck OP.

Congrats @Lauren83, a random surprise pregnancy sounds perfect to me! Not going to happen for us I don't think, been trying for number two since DS was a few weeks old hmm I hope all goes well with the pregnancy for you flowers

Thanks @partstress, that helps for expectations management! Really hoping for first time success obviously but need to be realistic.
