A MUST READ!!!!! ITS UNBELIVABLE!!!!!!!!!!!

I had my first IVF in Nov. 2011 this was a real journey for us. 10 dpt I did an HPT and it was BFP, we were so happy we couldnt belive that it was going so good. At 14dpt went for my beta and was 166. I went for my second beta and it was 80, how devastating my Dr. told me I was going to miscarrry. My numbers then went down to 40 and later went up to 80 then down to 40 then up to 170. we were going absolutly crazy, nothing showed up on the ultrasound in uterus or in my tubes. Well I finally started bleed and thought AF had came again another beta this was at 18. I thought I had miscarried but I was wrong, Christmas day around 3:00 pm I had very bad pains in my right ovary and my husband said that he thought it was ectopic and rushed me to the hospital. Guess what?. Ectopic in my right tube. I was bleeding pretty bad and my right tube was removed that very same day..

I still had 3 embies frozen and we we back March 9 2011 to have them transfered. We transfered 2 and this time my beta was BFN. Again we cried. We thought we had no more options because we dont have the money to do another cycle and how long would it take to save up the money again.. My doctor told us not to worry and said you are going to become pregnant, I thought he was just trying to make me feel better. He told us to call him the first day of my period. Well I called him this past Thursday and he told us to come in to his clinic Saturday morning.

When we arrived at the clinic all of the nurses and staff were very nice tu us. One of the nurses took us to the ultrasound room for the Doctor to have a look at my ovarys and we didnt understand why. My husband said to me how are we going to pay for this visit?.. The doctor did the ultrasound and told us to follow him to his office. We sat down in his office and he was telling us that he was going to start me on Gonal f today to begin our new cycle. My husband told the doctor that we cant do it because we dont have money to pay him. THIS IS WHEN WERE WERE ABSOLUTLY FLOORED!!!!!!!!!! HE ASKED IF WE BELIVED IN GOD AND WE SAID OF COURSE WE DO. HE TOLD US THAT THIS TIME WE ARE NOT GOING TO PAY A DIME. HE SAID THAT HE COULD SEE THE LOVE BETWEEN MY HUSBAND AND I AND WE ARE GOING TO MAKE EXCELENT PARENTS. HE TOLD US THAT HE IS GOING TO DO AS MANY IVF AS NEEDED FOR US TO HAVE OUR CHILD..

I cannot belive that this is real.. We now have the Gonal f and yesterday was my fist injection. This doctor is our angel and his clinic is very nice.. God is giving us a chance through this doctor to have our baby....

Thank you for all of your wonderful comments. I remember you from December when I was on my beta rollercoaster. I read your comments in the forum and you always give other people good advice and alot of hope. I think this forum without you here would not be the same:)

I am still shocked at what my doctor is doing for us it is a true gift from God...
I live in Mexico and money is very hard to come by and here for someone to do such a grand thing for free is unheard of... His clinic is very nice and one would think that he has all of his money because he is hard hearted and dedicated to his work. The reality is he has a wonderful heart and is dedicated tu his patients.....

I know that ball your talking about.. Today I am standing straight with pride and the feeling of hope again. We felt so alone  in this process to have a child and have asked God why he was punishing us, it was not punishment it was only a test to see our strength. In the begining of this IVF journey I felt God was walking beside me hand in hand I could see his footsteps along with mine and when all of my attempts failed I no longer saw two pares of footsteps I only saw one. I asked God why he left me alone.Saturday I got Gods answer..
He didnt leave me alone the only reason I saw one pair of footsteps was that God was carrying me on his shoulders...

Really moving story... Brought tears to my eyes! I know a lot of dr's are jaded, it's so nice to hear your story and know that some dr's still have a heart and are generous and kind! I know God will reward him, and you with success.

By the way, how much is ivf in Mexico? I live in california and am thinking maybe if I go to Mexico for ivf I can afford it? Maybe I'll even go to your Doc, hehe what an amazing blessing that would be if you started bringing him business from your testimony!

Best of luck on your journey into motherhood!! Pls let me know asap :0)

Thank you,

My appt is at 10:30 and yes im scared that it will go like last time too many eggs the last time there were 44 and with so many the quality isnt very good and I worry about ohss and cancel my cycle....

I guess there are things in life that is better to be less informed and I think that IVF could be one of them, hahaha:) When you dont know things there is much less worry.. sometimes we tend to do our own prognostics........

Wish me luck:)

I have about 20 eggs forming well friday they were 14 and 15 mm. Today I go back to the Dr. and if all is well I will take my injection to release the eggs and will do the extraction on wednesday. Soon we will see how many get fertilized.....

Wish me luck..... Were getting closer to our dream of having our baby at home with us.....

God bless
