Hi everyone! Ive been reading everyones stories and struggles and blessings and I must just say I am blown away by the love and support I see on this forum.
I wanted to introduce myself. I am 37 (soon to be 38 in 3 weeks) and my DH is 39. We got married in August last year and immediately started trying. I had been on birth control for the majority of the past 20 years with a few small breaks in the past 4 years. I had been diagnosed with MTHFR after a B6 toxicity issue 3 years ago and have been on L methyl Folate along with Methylcobolamin and I have been taking Prenatals for a few years to make sure my levels were where they needed to be.
We suffered a CP in November and then after seeing a fertility doctor in March, we found out we were pregnant naturally a week later. My AFC was only 5 and the doctor expressed concern about that and when I found out I was pregnant, I asked for my labs. I saw my AMH was 0.27 and I laughed...HA, take that! But after having our 9 week ultrasound expecting to see a heart beat, we saw a 6 week fetus and no heart beat, I realized the Low AMH meant something. I had a D&C 3 weeks ago.
We saw our fertility doctor. She wanted initially to start IUI, but when we told her our dream is to have 3 kids, she said IUI would not be appropriate as I will have no eggs left after 1 pregnancy. So our plan is 3 egg retrievals back to back to back and then FET in the fall. She will freeze on day 2 and we will do PGS all at once after the 3rd batch. We are pretty devastated that this is going to be our journey with no guarantee I will have any good eggs left. She thinks not only is my quantity not good, but quality as well. But we are committed to having our children and want to see what we can do to increase both my quality and quantity before resorting to donor eggs.
Ive been getting fertility acupuncture biweekly which I how I think I was able to get pregnant the previous 2 times, but probably both were chromosomally bad. I am starting twice a week acupuncture this week to prepare for what is to come. I also get Reiki and Healing Touch regularly (I also do both these techniques in my private practice), I do yoga regularly and meditate. And Im an ICU nurse.
Supplements: Coq10 600mg/day, Vit C 1000mg, Royal Jelly 500mg, Prenatals, Methylcobolamin 2500mcg, Minerals (selenium, zinc, mag, etc), Probiotics, glutathione 500mg, Vit D 5000mcg, chlorella .
