We have been TTC for over four years now. The first year was just having fun and trying to see what happens. During that time my DH’s mom was diagnosed with cancer and passed away. I don’t really consider that year part of our TTC journey because we had so much other stuff going on. The second year was spent with a far away RE doing testing. My DH has low morphology so the far away doctor wanted to do a SA four months apart in hopes of seeing improvement. Such a big waste of time – we then found an awesome RE closer to home. During years three and four we have done 10 IUI’s, 1 IVF, and 1 FET. Two of the IUI’s worked. The seventh IUI I miscarried at 10 weeks and the 10th IUI I miscarried at six weeks. IVF resulted in four fabulous grade A embryos. Two were transfered for the IVF and the last two for FET. Both resulted in a BFN. Jan 2011 we got our BFP with IVF#2 but lost our baby Gavin at 18.5 weeks. We took the next 6 months to heal emotionally. In December 2011 we transferred one frozen embryo. It resulted in a BFP! Due in August! I hope you enjoy following my story and don’t be shy! Tell me about yours!
I went into the hospital at 430am yesterday morning for my induction. They got me checked in and started me on gel. I had three gel treatments that consisted of gel inserted into my cervix to get it softened and effaced. They would insert the gel and I would lay there for an hour then they would have me walk the hospital for 40 minutes. They would do an internal check to see my progress and repeat the progress. I started at 2cm dilated and 75% effaced...I ended the three treatments at 2.5 cm dilated and 80% effaced. Since my body was not responding I got to do the walk of shame and head home. I am going back in to try again tomorrow night. I hope they have a better plan for me. They are still concerned with my high blood pressure and the protein levels in my urine so they are ready to induce. I am now 39 weeks so I hope my body realizes its job soon and we are able to successfully able to evict my Squatter! More to come!!!
I just wanted to check in with everyone. I am still here and still pregnant! Squatter is doing great and seems to be getting big. She is measuring in the 75%. My blood pressure went up pretty high this week so I had a fun hospital stay. I am now at home and on BP meds and I have a follow up OB appointment on Monday. I am on bed rest until then. I am getting excited to meet this little girl. I hope that the next time I have to go to the hospital it's to have her!
