Got married in 2007 and thought it would be easy to get pregnant. I really started trying in Sept. of 2008 when I started RE treatment. After many cycles of fermara and several failed IUI's my doctor basically told me to give up since I have a high FSH (Feb. 2010). I
[More] decided to join medhelp and change my way of thinking and make new friends who really understand what I am going though. I have renewed faith and it is because of the wonderful women who support each other!
Since joining medhelp I have had two more failed IUI's. In July 2010 I found my thyroid was not working correctly, so now I am taking thyroid medicine. In August 2010 I have added acupuncture weekly.
November 2010 I changed RE office. After a few more failed IUI's, I decide to try IVF. I was suprised and excited that I made it to transfer. I transfered one perfect embroyo on August 15. 2011, but sadly beta was negative.
April of 2012, I started learning about immune treatment(Alan E Beer Center) and began gathering information requested for an appointment in the summer. I also decided in May to learn Creighton Model to achieve pregnancy and began class. Consultation with Beer Center in August that said I needed to go do LIT in Mexico, so ordered a passport and made plans to go in Nov. I decided to follow their treatment, and got a bfp prior to LIT. Repeated LIT 3 weeks later, and pregnancy was going well until almost 28 weeks. Water broke and Hunter was born two days later, just 2 pounds 14 oz. After 111 days and a surgery my son is home. We love him so much!

Glad you were able to shake that cough and are feeling better! I am doing okay. Just feeling some stress because it looks like my spouse was let go from her job this week. So now we need to figure out what to do about getting her health insurance. Other than that looking forward to a fun Easter Sunday with family. Thanks for checking in Risa and I hope you and your family have a lovely weekend!!
