We’ve been married over 5 years and trying to conceive just as long. (I can say the “It’s not you, it’s me” line to my husband if you know what I mean). We’ve tried everything we can and now we have committed to taking the next step with IVF! It’s an exciting and trying time but we are looking forward to it. Here’s a brief summary.
The things we’ve tried:
- An OB’s recommendation to “Think like a teenage mom. They never seem to have a problem getting knocked up.”
- A family practice physician’s recommendation to “Stop stressing and have sex every night.”
- 4 rounds of Clomid.
- 3 rounds of Letrozole.
- 4 IUIs including 2 all injectable Follistim IUIs
After the hormone induced tomato throwing, laughing so hard I’m crying, hot flashing fury, the time has come. We will be in Las Vegas 2/23-3/8 and hopefully what happens in Vegas doesn’t stay in Vegas!
