New here, Can I join the party?! — The Bump
Pregnant after IF

New here, Can I join the party?!

Hi ladies, I am so happy to be here!  DH and I tried for 2 1/2 years for child #2, and had two miscarriages and then an ectopic.  After the ectopic and removal of my right tube, we could no longer get pregnant.  We started treatment with an RE in January, and he discovered a cyst on my left ovary that wouldn't go away.  DH and I were convinced there was something preventing the eggs from my left ovary from getting to the tube, but RE refused to check for (or treat) endometriosis.  So, DH and I made the decision last month that, with only my right ovary and my left tube to work with and AMA, it was time to give up. 

So we were shocked to find ourselves pregnant this month, our first month of "not trying!"  And, the first ultrasound showed that the corpus luteum cyst is on the right side.  So this little bean somehow made it from my right ovary to my left tube!

Looking forward to getting to know you ladies over the next few months.  And to joining the other 2IF grads on their weekly grad update!

Me: 42. DH: 46.

1st Pregnancy: MC, 11/19/00.

2nd Pregnancy: DS born 04/10/06.

3rd Pregnancy: CP, 03/11.

4th Pregnancy: MMC, D&C 11/30/11, Genetic testing revealed Trisomy 4.

5th Pregnancy: Ectopic, 2 doses of Methotrexate unsuccessful, surgery 4/10/12, right tube removed.

Tried Letrozole January 2013-July 2013 (including 2 IUIs), all BFN.  After 2 1/2 years of trying for child #2, decided to "give up" after July cycle, based on AMA.

August 16, 2013:  BFP our first month of "not trying!"  Still in shock.  Beta #1 (14dpo): 183.  Beta #2 (17dpo):  611.  Ultrasound 8/30/13: baby measured 6 weeks, 1 day, heart rate of 118 bpm! 
Ultrasound 9/13/13:  8 weeks, heart rate of 176!
Baby is due 4/26/14
