It has been a long time since I've participated in IComLeavWe, so I'll just fill you in a bit about myself;)
I started this Blog in Dec. 2008 to have an Outlet to talk about my feelings about Infertility. It has been a wonderful place where I can talk about whatever I'm feeling or going through. And I have received So Much support here. I would definitely recommend blogging to anyone out there suffering from infertility who feels alone in their Journey.
My Dh and I got Married March 3, 2007 and started TTC right away. A yr later still wasn't pregnant, and made a appt with my OB. Followed by some blood test of course, found out I was not Ovulating due to PCOS and was planning to start clomid.... Until right before we did, we got Dh's SA results back.(LOW COUNT & MOTILITY) Shocked! Dh seen urologist, found nothing wrong. Put him on Strong Antibiotics for 4 weeks, only made his count go up from 3mil. to 6mil.
Over almost another yr of still trying on our own and we Finally Made an Appt, with our RE. And We knew we'd need IVF/ICSI. It went Great, and we Planned our IVF for May 2009! I was so Nervous and Excited. And what I now call an "Infertility Clinic virgin".lol That soon changed.
May '09- IVF/ICSI, "cancelled" due to pour response and 2 dominate follies, converted to a IUI. BFN
July '09- 2nd attempt IVF/ICSI, "cancelled" to pour response and 1 dominate follie, converted Again to IUI. BFN (really a waste of time with Low Motility)
VERY VERY VERY DISCOURAGED:,(
Sept. '09-3rd attempt IVF/ICSI, We Finally Got the Right MEDS. Combo for my stubborn ovaries and made it to Retrieval!
6 fertilized with ICSI, 2 transferred at day 3! 3 embies Made it to Day 5! We have 3 Snow babies! YAY!
On Oct. 5, 2009, I got the phone call that Changed My Life! We were Finally Pregnant after 2 1/2 yrs of trying! Our Miracle baby Girl was Born June 9th, 2010:)
Even though it was harder to go through than words can ever describe she was worth it all! I'd do it again in a heartbeat. Now we are on our Journey to baby #2, were hoping and praying that it will not be as hard this time around. If all Goes well we Plan to do a FET in Jan.'11! I'm nervous & excited all over Again.lol Praying that they make it to Transfer and get our 2nd BFP, and Give our sweet baby Girl a sibling! I have so many worries about what could go wrong, but I try to remind myself to Keep my Faith, and NEVER GIVE UP! Those to things are key things that got us through the 1st time.
Sorry this is So Long. Its been a long journey. BUT Oh So Worth It All!!!
Happy IComLeaveWE to you all!
