After years of disconnect, my husband and I "met," and we knew we were going to get married and expand our family right away. We had three kids combined already. After months of trying, we turned to Boston IVF in November 2019. In March 2020, the COVID pandemic put a halt to our journey. Once we were able to restart treatment in June 2020 and failed IUIs, we slowly gave up hope. On our next IUI cycle, my body over responded to treatment send we were given two options: abandon the cycle or convert to IVF. Scared and having to make a quick decision, we looked to faith and knew converting to IVF would get us closer to our baby. I remember being so nervous from going into the egg retrieval to watching the embryo being implanted with only hope and faith this cycle would be successful. I remember Bryna calling me telling me the IVF was successful! I stood in the bathroom at work crying, then calling my husband to tell him the good news! Bryna was with us every step of our journey, and you could hear the excitement in her voice for us. After almost two years, we were going to meet our baby! Because COVID and limited sites were open, we had many 5 am drives to Waltham for cycle testing. It became a part of life. But everyone in the Boston IVF family made you feel like just that.. Family. We welcomed our healthy baby boy, Anthony, at 8lb 10oz on May the 4th, 2021. We are so blessed!
