Married 1996. Waited 2 years to start our family, LOL. Kept trying on our own, w/o intervention until 2006. Crazy, maybe but we kept thinking it would happen. 1st & only pregnancy Jan 2006, tubal, right fallopian tube removed. (I did not know I was 6 wks pregnant). 1st IVF May 2006, fresh cycle failed. Two more IVF trials & FET transfers later all failed. So we're tryin' again... 5th transfers a charm- no it failed too, chemical pregnancy. Tried a 6th FET hoping it was "the charm", it wasn't, NEGATIVE on 12-23-08. Doctor thought a good idea to remove my one remaining fallopian tube, had it ligated January 2009. 7th ET in June 2009, hoping that as my tube issue was gone this was going to be the one... wrong again, low first beta of 24 then down to 2.5. November 2009 I did some immune testing. We just finished our 4th IVF in Feb 2010 with some tweaks, a different protocol & some meds to target immune issues & got our BFP, saw 2 heartbeats. Sadly one baby stopped growing at 10w, but our little miracle arrived in Oct 2010. This blog was started as my IVF journey, but it’s outta control…so along with my IVF stories expect to read almost anything.
Think of this as the most interesting delurking project you'll ever participate in. After giving back to others at the Celebratory Society, I have decided to participate in it myself. You can understand the project in full by clicking here, but in brief, the Celebratory Society is an online festschrift for a blogger--a way for you to tell me what my blog or actions mean to you. But this isn't about me--this is about you too. And I would love it if you returned to your own blog, started your own Celebratory Society post, added it to the main project list, and gave me the opportunity to tell you about...you. Here is my link to the project: My Celebratory Society Post
