My husband and I welcomed our miracle baby in December of 2022. When we got engaged in 2018, we decided it was time to start our family. After 2 years of failed attempts and meetings with my regular OB, we decided to head to your facility. After a year of multiple tests & an honest answer that IVF may be our only shot, we decided to give IUI a try! After our 4th failed, I almost gave up. We were exhausted with meds, shots, etc. My husband's birthday was coming up and the 5th IUI would land on that day, so we chose to try one last time. We honestly didn't have much hope & were prepared to have to start the grueling process of IVF. So, on April 4th 2022 we went in for IUI #5. About 2 weeks later I started to feel more tired than usual but tried not to think about it. On April 21st we got the call that #5 was a success! We were in awe & shocked. Our miracle had come true. Pregnancy was full of fatigue and nausea but overall was not bad. On December 21st, 2022, we went in for a scheduled c-section due to the baby being breech. During the birth, my placenta ruptured but the baby & I both came out great, we are perfectly healthy! Science works, doctors work, and miracles do come true. Here we are, almost 4 years later, absolutely head over heels in love with our miracle baby. Our baby boy is here and perfect. Thank you, Boston IVF!
What were some highs or lows of your treatment(s)? What is unique/different about your story?
I would love to say there were lots of highs, but infertility is unforgiving. You will feel lower than low when your schedule is loaded with medications & shot, but it is worth it. Rest, breathe, cry even. You can do this!
What advice do you have for other struggling with infertility?
Don't give up! Look for guidance in reading - infertility books helped me along. It is hard to remember that you are not alone, but reading others stories helped me.
