A quick summary of the past year and a half journey…….My husband and I have been trying to have a baby since we got married. After many months went by and many pregnancy tests wasted we began to look for help. We were not at the year mark but didn’t care because we knew something was wrong. I got checked out and nothing seemed out of whack. I tended to have a short luteal phase but no Dr seemed too concerned. Surprisingly Doug went willingly to get looked at but the day we got the results was one of the hardest days we have been through. He had low everything. They tried putting him on Clomid and antibiotics but it didn’t help.
We were now branded as an infertile couple. The doctors kept telling us we would never conceive naturally and In-Vitro was our only option. Hearing these words broke both our hearts but finally we decided to try IVF. The first one was a struggle and did not work. We had three embryos frozen from that cycle and decided to do a FET (frozen embryo transfer) and again more heartbreak. After each failure we grieve but we continue to pick up the pieces and move on. We have had another failed IVF in August and a failed FET in November. Next up with be #5 and another FET. If this one fails on to IVF with PGD. Praying the
third fourth fifth time’s the charm!
Update: And the 5th time was the charm. We finally got a positive pregnancy test at 5dp5dt or 10dpo!
