We have been together 8 years and married 5 years!
We bought our first home 9 months after we were married.
We have been pregnant 4 times.
The first three were 1st trimester losses and
January of 2013 we experienced our first
The last three years has been an up hill battle
but we believe our love has kept us strong.
and also this community!
Our loss in April 2012 hit us pretty hard.
we were 12 weeks and 1 day when I spotted for the first time
we rushed to the ER to find that our baby's heart had stopped beating
around 9 weeks :(
We had really high hopes that this baby was going to be the one
we held in our arms. We celebrated those first 12 weeks
like we would be bringing a baby home in October.
I wouldn't change the excitement we had for the world.
I am happy we had those 3 months of joy.
we are in our 8th cycle, this is our first cycle
back since the failed one in November.
In January I got a really weird half positive test.
Blood work showed that I was having a chemical pregnancy.
AF did not arrive at all in Feb. I took about 100 hpts
which were all negative. I also got very sick in February with
pneumonia and influenza B I was in and out of the hospital
and Doctors office for 3 weeks.
Finally I called Dr. B to get a round of provera to bring AF
to town, he requested an ultrasound to confirm
that I was not pregnant and that I did not have
any major cysts. The scan looked great and I was
given the pills. 4 days after my last pill
AF arrived. I am now on day 2 of Femara!
This cycle we are doing,
Femara days 3-7
Follicle scan on March 29th
progesterone test, with another injection
(to boost progesterone)
We are wishing, hoping and praying
that our very first IUI
will be a success!
