About Me: Female, 45, Other, member since Apr 2009
I am 14weeks pregnant found out last week that i am having a boy , 40 years old been trying to get pregnant since june 2006. My husband is 34years old.. We did combination of programs in the last threeyears, first year natural with clomid, no pregnancy, then two years
[More] ago i did 5 IUI's two on clomed 50mg, and 3 with gonal f injectables, no pregnancy. I did my first ivf jan 09, no pregnancy, 2nd ivf with thawed embies in march 09 no pregnancy, 2nd fresh cycle in june 09 no pregnancy.
I switched doctors and had surgery in oct 09 to removed 8 fibroids which were distorting the shape of my uterus and removed endometriosis.
I am now on my 3rd fresh cycle of IVF which i had 11 follicles of which 6 of them turned into embryo's of the 6 two of them made it to blastocyst the others arrested, they put them back on day 5 june 10, 2010 i go in for my beta on tues june 22nd.
this time taking things different, more relaxed. i did accupuncture leading up to ivf and on the day of before and after and now. I am happy to report that i am finally pregnant, first time ever! I never thought it would happen for me. Its so surreal because it's been a long journey. I just want to say to everyone one else going through this.. Dont give up. If you are unhappy with your dr definitely look for someone who makes you feel comfortable and really wants to get you pregnant. I switched dr's several times before i found my current doctor who i had complete faith in, and low and behold, first IVF with him, i got pregnant, i'm sure it was a mixture of all the meditation and IVF and Vitex and holistic approach. We're not out of the woods yet, we still have our scan July 10th. At least now i can take comfort in knowing that i can get pregnant. So any of you with unexplained fertility dont give up hope.
