Well, been off BC for over 3 years, 1 1/2 years of fertility treatment including six IUI's. One IUI we had 95 million sperm AFTER the wash and I had between 4-8 eggs being released on my right ovary (left tube blocked) and timed it perfectly with a BFN (again). We walked away after that cycle this summer accepting that child #3 was not meant to be in our lives. They told me that, although there was no one reason they could name, I could not get pregnant. Most likely due to the three uterine surgeries (polyps and fibroids) which left me with lots of scar tissue, a retroverted uterus, luteal phase defect, unpredicatble follicular phase, and a blocked left tube (result of fibroid surgery) there were just too many things stacked against me. Well.....I was two weeks "late" (been there done that, my cycles can be super long, up to 42 days). DH was challanging me to take one. I was like "Do you KNOW how many times I have been through this?" I swore of HPT's months ago. Just to oblige him, I bought one and in the middle of the day POAS. I watched the urine pass down the strip and saw nothing. Came out of the bathroom and told him that I could already see it was negative and how tempted I was to mess with his head, lol. Well, I go back in a minute and there is is. A plus sign. All I could do was sob, and sob, and sob. This baby will be due the month before my DD starts kindergarten, so we are starting all over again (DS is 8 and DD is 4). I am still in shock. How in the world?? How in the WORLD?? We weren't even trying...heck we were barely having sex! So, moral of the story...never say never. If I can get pregnant, YOU can get pregnant.

Good luck!

Kelly, Mom to DS (conceived without a thought) and DD (conceived after 12 months of fertility treatment on IUI#3) and little bean due June 2012
