I have come to the board sometimes but not since going through fertiity treatment. I just had to share this with everybody! I did 2 natural cycle IUI's without success this summer. Less than 2 weeks ago, I decided to try an IUI cycle with injectables. I responded well and on Tuesday (which I thought was my last ultrasound before I went in Wed for insemination) I found out that I was hyperstimulating. My only option was to ditch this cycle and around 10 good follicles or change gears and go the IVF route. Well, I thought for sure this was God's answer after so much prayer! I wasnt about to throw away the $3000 that I had already spent, so I went for it! They allowed me to roll the cost of the IUI into IVF, so it ended up costing me another $7500. Thursday they harvested 14 eggs. 11 were mature and 9 were fertilized! Tomorrow morning first thing I go in for the transfer.
With the success rates the way they are with IUI, I had toyed with the idea of going straight to IVF, before I ran out of money but for some reason I wanted to give an IUI cycle with injectables a shot. Like I said before, I know that God's hand is in this whole thing and I am just a passenger along for the ride. I have been meditating and praying on surrendering to this whole infertility issue more than ever in the last few months, instead of trying to control everything. He has showed me that he really is in control and this really is a huge sign!
I know there is still a long road to travel down before I can rejoice in celebration but after 5 years, I am getted somewhere and I am so happy for it. If this doesnt work, well, I will have 7 frozen embryos to work with. I know some of you ladies have similar stories of trying to get pregnant and I have been inspired by your stories. I hope that you can now be inspired by my journey too.
