    Default New to the room......

    My name is Lizzy, and after just about 2 1/2 years of trying....I am finally pregnant. Here is my story...

    07/09 I met my now DH
    06/11 I married my DH
    10/11 officially started TTC
    11/11-02/12 thought I was PG several different times....wasn't.
    06/12- Saw OB....told to come back in 10/12 after the year mark.
    10/12 did first round of testing...my labs came back fine...DH's wasn't....discovered zero sperm in his semen sample.
    11/12 saw a urologist... did some additional testing for DH....no clear results....discovered our insurance company lied about the testing being covered...switched insurances....
    01/13 saw urologist....scheduled an initial surgery for DH
    02/13 had surgery, no clear results....
    03/13 1st appointment with RE....DH placed on some meds to help increase sperm production....
    04/13-05-13 surgery rescheduled three times....
    06/13 DH had surgery ....discovered that DH was born without vas deferens, and most likely it was a result of a cystic fibrosis trait....obtained 4 vials of sperm collected directly from teste (and discovered we had 4000+ in bills that had to be paid the next day... luckily DH's grandmother helped.
    07/13 started testing on me to get me ready for IVF.
    08/13-10/13 round 1 of IVF....obtained 3 eggs...all three fertilized and looked great.... implanted one....on 10/05/13 discovered it was a BFN.
    10/13-12/13 waiting for next cycle to start....ended up having to start provera to get my cycle to start....12/13/13. started this round....
    12/13/13 to 02/07/13....FET started...cycle delayed due to my uterine lining wasn't thick enough and was spotting....had a time where I had some unusual swelling.....
    02/07/14 the remaining 2 embryos were transfered.
    02/17/14 had a very faint BFP with FMU
    02/18/14 very clear BFP not with FMU
    02/19/13 BETA level was 106 (lower than I had hoped, but still good)
    02/21/14 BETA level was 273....more than doubled....

    03/11 will be my first ultrasound
    03/31 will be my first appointment with my OB....

    You guys have had a journey... Your husband deserves a brownie button for being willing to get surgeries. He sounds like a keeper.

    So glad that you are here! APA is a great place to be. I have been here each time I have TTC'ed and then joined the birth rooms. I always see people that I know from previous experiences.
