Success after IF
Options

Intro

Hello ladies! I'm Kelly. I'm so excited to be a part of this board! Bit of background on our difficulty conceiving: I have low prog and an LPD, as well as a slightly elevated DHEA level. H has moderate male factor. We TTC since 2/2009. We did 3 Clomid IUIs, and 1 Follistim IUI. Each cycle had an issue. Either I responded poorly or post wash sperm counts were low. IUI failed. We initially decided to move to IVF but because we would have been OOP, we decided that adoption was a better option for us, so we began pursuing adoption in the spring of 2012. 

At the end of June, I took an HPT and was shocked when it was positive. I was followed by my RE and all betas came back great. We got a heartbeat at 5w6d. My pregnancy was pretty uneventful  until 39w4d, when my BP was 140/100. I was induced the next day.  James was born 3/13 at 8 lb 3 oz, 20.5 inches. My entire birth story is on PAIF if anyone is interested. 

Anyway,,I look forward to participating here. And now I have to go b/c my sweet angel just crapped his pants.  

 

Started TTC 2/2009
Started fertility treatments 11/2010
Ovarian dysfunction, LPD, male factor
6 failed medicated IUI's
Pregnant 5/2011 - Miscarriage at 6 weeks due to triploidy
Decided to adopt - 6/2012
SURPRISE! Pregnant without intervention - 7/2012 
Sweet Baby James Born 3/2013
Decided to be "One and Done"

....OR NOT.
Pregnant 12/2018 despite birth control pills
Here we go again...
Due 8/26/19!
