Hi! I will tell an abridged version of my story to start and hope that others follow!
I have gone through 2 husbands and 14 years of infertility. Two failed adoptions, endless cycles of Clomid, and insemination before trying in vitro. Our first attempt at in vitro was successful (this was wonderful and supportive current husband) and we had a little boy in Oct 2003. We unthawed the frozen embryos from this pregnancy in May of 2005. They all died and I was absolutely devastated. We did another fresh cycle of in vitro with no successs. The next month we thawed the frozens from that cycle. They all died. I thought, okay I am supposed to be the mommy of one little boy I should feel blessed. I did but there was a desire in my heart for more children. I took a few months off from the treatments- you know how horrible it is on your body. We tried another fresh cycle in late Nov of 2005. By this time I only had 1 ovary and only had 6 eggs to harvest, my doctor told me the odds where horrible and that my reserve was very low, I was only 31. Miraculously we transferred 3 and became pregant!! I had another little boy in Aug of 2006. We have 2 little frozen embryos that we are thawing later this month. I know they are my last shot and I am so scared they too will die.
