We tried it all! IUI, shots, you name it and nothing was working. So, we moved on to IVF and I was surprised at how long it took. My embryos looked great, counts were high … so why did it take so long? Fresh, frozen, fresh, frozen … felt like forever! And the cost! WOW! I started to think I needed to just “let it be” and then my very last cycle it worked!
It felt like an eternity and now when I look at Alex’s sweet little happy face it feels like only minutes. The aggravation and frustration are all a distant memory. It makes you realize that with science, persistence and a little (ok, a lot) of faith miracles do happen. My journey took this healthy 32 year old 5 years so all I can do is encourage everyone to be realistic with your bodies, know when to let it rest, and don’t give up if you still have hope!
I also know that without the support and encouragement of everyone at CNY Fertility Center I could never have gotten through it. I remember when I thought I was pregnant every single nurse (and Dr. too!) came into my exam room and hugged me. Tears and happiness were eminent and it was genuine. Having a true support system like that makes such a hard journey manageable. Thanks to everyone at CNY Fertility, I am officially the luckiest person in the world!
