Pregnant after IF

fill in the blank. A year ago I...

A year ago this week I triggered for my first ever Clomid cycle. 

I think it's pretty cool to look back and reflect on how much changes over the course of a year. Life is an insane roller coaster.

  • A year ago this month, we were finding out about DH's MFI and I was having a biopsy for a suspected breast cancer.

    Fortunately, I don't have breast cancer.

    Dx: MFI, DOR, 9 Fibroids and homozygous MTHFR

    I was in wine country in California... sipping on some good stuff!

    But, I was licking my wounds from my disastrous  double miscarriage IVF #2 cycle.... as much as I would love some wine right now, I am so happy for where I am this year! :)

    A year ago this weekend I was miscarrying my first baby from IVF #1. 

    Very bittersweet - I should have an outside baby but am so thankful that Kate is healthy and kicking away.

  • A year ago I was in the lowest place I've ever been and I hope I never feel that way again.  I was still reeling from yet another loss after IVF #3.  I was at the start of a 5-6 month break during which we did some further testing and got second and third opinions.  It was a dark time.  It is so amazing the difference a year can make.

  • A year ago today I was just starting up treatment cycles after my ectopic in March.  We were beginning our first medicated IUI cycle.  I was very hopeful as i was able to get pregnant quickly on clomid. Little did I know that my body would completely shut down on me.
  • A year ago I had a 3.5 month old baby! I cannot believe how big she seems now!  I had lost all of my pregnancy weight and was wearing a bikini with massive boobies from was awesome.  Not so much this year (the boobie part) :(

    TWO years ago today I had my first IVF ET which resulted in my beautiful daughter! I don't know what I'd do or where I'd be without her.

  • A year ago I was recovering from the c/p from IVF #1 and had just finished my one-day work-up with CCRM.

    Two years ago I was seriously questioning my marriage. 

    Three years ago my husband was pretty much at his worst as far as his chronic illness, hopped up on the max legal dose of oxycotin and a total zombie.  

    Four years ago we had been TTC for about 7 months. 

    Five years ago we were preparing to get married.

  • A year ago Friday, I had my HSG and was so hopeful that it would be the cycle we'd get pg.  The beginning of the next cycle is what prompted us to seek a specialist and figure out what was going on with my body.

    A year ago today I was 4 weeks away from my first RE appointment.


    How weird.  This is what I was going to say!  I also was going to add that I was having a pity party for myself all summer long last year as I had a lap in June and was told I couldn't try for 2 months.

  • A year ago this week it really hit me that getting pregnant on our own wasn't going to do it, so I called the OB to set up an appt to have a talk about it. Having to pick up the phone and saying I think there was a problem was one of the scariest things I had to do at the time, but in the end I am glad I did it when I did.

  • One year ago I was recovering from having a d&e due to another loss and I was in such a funk that I never wanted to try again.

    Two years ago I was doing a clomid cycle.

    Three years ago I was getting my lap done and was dx with endo.  

    Four years ago we had just started ttc. 

    Daycare is SO exhausting!
  • I was so excited that we were going to start TTC & CD of my first official cycle trying had begun! I'd have a & day LP that cycle, which progressively got shorter...which led me to my RE...and to a MFI Dx...which led us to going straight to IVF/ICSI & now to our little girl. I feel so blessed to have her kicking away inside of me. Love this lil munchkin! Big Smile
  • A year ago it had been one year since my first m/c. We had done two Clomid cycles with no success, and I was officially diagnosed with unexplained IF. We were gearing up for our first injectable IUI cycle. If you would have told me then that I would have 3 IUIs, 2 IVFs, and another m/c under my belt by now, I would have said you were crazy.

  • i was gaining weight, doing "fertility yoga" and everything else i could think of to boost fertility in preparation for our first clomid cycle in august. (obviously none of this worked. it was kind of funny, honestly . . . we did a "trial run" with clomid where i responded great, then i did all of this stuff to try to make myself more fertile and started having a crappy response to clomid. =)  oh well. as someone who only went through five months of IF treatments before getting our sticky BFP, i know how lucky i was and am.)
