2013: Year of Infertility Treatments

January: IUI #1 = BFN

February: IUI #2 = BFN

March: IUI #3 = BFN

May – June: IVF #1 = BFN (Cancellation due to OHSS)

July: Surprise! Major Back Surgery

September: Switched Reproductive Endocrinologists

October – November: IVF #2 Fresh Transfer: BFN

December: IVF#2 Frozen Embryo Transfer = …………………….BFP!!!!!!


I cannot express how shocked we BOTH were to see those 2 lines.  But most of all, we were grateful and excited.  I have NEVER seen a second line.  I even rechecked the directions a few times to make sure I wasn’t fooling myself.  I thought it was a really vibrant dream!  But it is real.  I have my beta test in the morning.  For the first time, I am not dreading it.  Now I have tested 2 more times and the same result.  I’m not sure when I won’t want to test again and again, every morning.

This is the only thing I wanted for Christmas.  And talk about an amazing Birthday gift for my hubby (Dec. 24th).  I’m pregnant.  I am pregnant.

We aren’t telling anyone other than my immediate family and our closest friends at work who already knew about the IVF.  After all that I put them through, they deserve to be in on the good news 🙂  I think my 2nd trimester starts on Feb. 13 so we will announce on Valentine’s Day 2014.  My due date, according to my transfer date, is August 31st 2014!

P.S. – This news is a miracle and I know how lucky I am.  Whenever one of my fellow bloggers announced her BFP, I was always very happy for them but also sad and jealous, just a tiny bit!  But at the same time, I also told myself that I WANT to see others get their BFPs because that means that it is possible for anyone, including me.

    Congratulations!!! It givers me hope! I’ve had 5 IUIs (4 bfn and one chemical) then switched REs and did IVF #1 fresh transfer in sept which resulted in a chemical. My FET#1 is today!! I’ve read so many stories of ladies doing better with the FET than the fresh. Congrats again and thank you for the inspiration!
