OUR STORY

Share your inspiring success story!
We got married in 2012 and knew then that we were going to try for a baby right away. I got pregnant 9 months later with the help of Clomid. When we went for our 12 week ultrasound we discovered that it was a blight ovum pardum pregnancy and I had to have a DNC. After this miscarriage I had 2 unsuccessful IUIs. We then did our first round of IVF in 2020, and I became pregnant. I lost that baby very early. A few months later we did another round of IVF and became pregnant.

At 33 weeks pregnant I had a placenta abruption and was rushed to the hospital via ambulance. I stayed in the hospital for 24 days. The longest 3 weeks of my life. I had gestational diabetes and took insulin 4 times a day. After 23 hours I’d labor, I had an emergency c-section. It was terrifying. My pregnancy was difficult, but I’d do it again.
I can’t believe we want another baby, but I do.

We now have a healthy, happy 14 1/2 month old baby boy named Bennett William. He is learning to walk and testing out his lungs! I still stare at him in awe! I cannot believe I’m a Mama.

We are so grateful to Dr. Alper and Dr. Lannon! We were ready to give up on our dream of being parents. I’m so glad we decided to a 2nd round of IVF. Thank you for everyone who helped along the way.
