Tarah & Chris's Story:
We were married in 2011 we knew we wanted to start a family right away. We tried for over a year naturally.
We decided to seek out CNY Fertility in 2013. I did an IUI and it was negative I then waited till 2014 and started IVF. We got pregnant right away first try. Unfortunately lost that one. Did another transfer and unfortunately had another loss.
We decided to take 2 years off and got naturally pregnant and lost those ones too.
I did another IVF and had twins and lost them both and was getting discouraged. We took some time to think things over and realized we had done a total of 5 IVF and had 6 embryos left. We decided to use 3 of them and on 06/28/2021 we gave birth to our daughter Hope Elizabeth.
She was born one year to the date of my mother-in-law’s anniversary of her death.
She promised us before she passed that she would hand pick out the baby and 3.5 months later that’s when I got pregnant.
Favorite Team Member at CNY:
We have made friends with so many I can’t even begin to name them all.
We love all the nurses and drs at Latham and Syracuse.
Helpful resources Tarah & Chris found:
I didn’t do much different then any other transfer but I did other treatments.
Keto, Ivig, acupuncture and massages
The highs and lows of my pregnancy is, I absolutely loved being pregnant. At 15 weeks Chris and I both got Covid. We were so nervous and scared because of our losses.
Hope, Inspiration and Advice:
Never give up on your dream of having a family. Persistence and patience is the best thing. And stay positive. It took me a while to get my take home baby but we finally did.
We decided to donate our remaining embryos to a really good friend. I hope they have the best luck with them.
