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 visit my blog every couple days to mainly read all the blogs that I follow. I love keeping in touch and reading everyone’s posts. I don’t have much to say on my blog these days since we are no longer TTC. We are enjoying life with a toddler and trying to keep up with her. I can’t believe that Charlotte is already 17 months old. She runs the house hold and is starting to talk more.
There have been lots of discussions in our home about a potential second baby. After many deep conversations and a few tears we have decided against any more fertility treatments. It’s what is best for our family at this time.
