Kally & Dustin's Story:
I was diagnosed with PCOS not long before Dustin and I got married so the month following our marriage I started my very first round of clomid. 11 rounds later and 2 rounds of femara and still no baby. We decided to take a “break” from trying but I ended up needing a D&C and polyp removal. We also went ahead and checked my tubes which were clear. The doctor suggested another round of clomid with trigger shots. We tried three rounds of clomid with trigger shots and still no baby. I definitely thought my journey of trying to get pregnant was over because I just knew we could never be able to afford IVF.
But God sent us to CNY fertility. This sweet girl, Zayah Faith is the result of a fresh embryo transfer. We are so thankful for everything CNY did for us! CNY gave us the biggest blessing and the greatest gift.
Favorite Team Member at CNY:
Niccole from the Albany clinic! She was so amazing. Every appointment I was praying it was her work day and even tried to schedule them to when I knew she was there! She had the best attitude and made light of a very stressful time! She performed our very first ultrasound and even made the joke “this is a stubborn girl” because our tiny little baby was hiding and very hard to see. She deserves all the hype, she’s the best!
Helpful resources Kally & Dustin found:
I did a massage at the clinic before my transfer and Accupuncture after. The Accupuncture was a very emotional experience. He told me “Talk to your baby.” I did exactly that. I closed my eyes and prayed so hard for my transfer to result in a baby.
I also did Kiltz Keto a month prior to my egg retrieval! Lost 30 pounds and felt great!
At 7 weeks pregnant when we were back in Mississippi we were told we had a miscarriage. We had twins, one was a blighted ovum, the other had no heartbeat. I stopped all my medicine. Three days later I had a weird feeling and decided to go to the ER where we learned our baby still had a heartbeat.
Hope, Inspiration and Advice:
Trust your team, and do your research. Lots of research! I loved understanding how everything worked. It helped me feel at ease knowing what this medicine did or the reasoning behind a certain protocol.
