September 2013: Receive my Diminished Ovarian Reserve diagnosis. Decide to ttc naturally for six months before pursuing other options.
April 2014: Nothing happened so IVF it is! Multiple tests performed over the next few months – HSG, hysterosonogram, hysteroscopy, countless bloodwork, etc., etc.
August 2014: IVF#1 – total bust. Cycle was cancelled due to poor response. Sadness.
September 2014: IVF#2 – another bust. Cycle was canceled and I was converted to an IUI. Two IUI’s were performed back to back. BFN.
March 2015: After a break to regroup emotionally and financially, it’s on to IVF#3. Success! Sort of. Retrieved 5 eggs. 3 made it to Day 5. 1 was genetically normal and was frozen. The little embie that could.
June 2015: IVF#4 – cancelled.
September 2015: IVF#5 – cancelled. We’ve hit the end of the road for stimulation cycles. There’s just no exciting these tired eggs.
Fall 2016 – Tentative FET for our frozen embie. Please pray/keep some positive thoughts for us!
