TTC History

  • Summer 2012 – Robert and I decide to start a family. We visit with my ObGyn for a preconception appointment.
  • November 2012 – I stop taking my birth control and we start trying to actively conceive.
  • August 2013 – still not successful conceiving (and after an army of tests are done with regards to my undiagnosed autoimmune problems) we start fertility treatments.
  • October 2013 – I have a large ovarian cyst and we have to take a month off to watch the cyst.
  • December 2013 – We start my first medicated cycle (letrozole) and use timed intercourse with a trigger shot. I have a chemical pregnancy/early miscarriage.
  • January 2014 – Letrozole cycle 2, trigger shot single IUI #1. BFN.
  • February 2014 – moved to the Fertility Clinic for advanced treatment. Discuss treatment options and come to the conclusion that autoimmune problems are likely complicating our efforts to conceive. RE wants to do a clomid challenge test. We do timed intercourse and a trigger shot, but opt not to do an IUI so we can start treatment to bring my inflammation down. BFN.
  • March 2014 – Letrozole cycle 3, trigger shot, double IUI #2. BFN.
  • April 2014 – Letrozole cycle 4, double trigger shot, single IUI #3 due to ovulation timing. BFN.
  • May 2014 – Letrozole cycle 5, double trigger shot. Cancelled due to C. Diff. Infection.
  • June 2014 – Letrozole cycle 6, double trigger shot, double IUI #4. BFP – early loss/chemical pregnancy.
  • July 2014 – Cycle cancelled due to loss in June. Reconference with RE scheduled to discuss further treatment options.
  • August 2014 – Letrozole cycle 7, 10 day antibiotic treatment, double trigger shot, double IUI #5 – BFP! Due May 9, 2015. It’s a girl!
