Even though it feels like 'a lot'/personal - I promised myself I'd normalize struggles with infertility soon after my pregnancy announcement! IRL we had a long road of testing, 6 IUIs, IVF, holistic medicine, marital strain, tears, 2 lost babies, seeing so many people get pregnant 'easily.' Eventually, 27 eggs somehow boiled down to ONE healthy embryo. I was so concerned, but Dr. Lannon and team reassured me, "all you need is one." We are so grateful to have the financial, social, and emotional resources to lean on some science & a whole lot of faith. (1) THANK YOU to an amazing community of the best women EVER for listening & just being so beautifully, gloriously supportive, (2) If you are struggling with unexplained infertility, please know you are not alone, & (3) We ALL struggle with something(s)- let's be kind to each other.
How did your boston ivf physician and nursing team help to make your journey a success?
The phlebotomist is a star! She got me in and out of the office in moments.
What were some highs or lows of your treatment(s)? What is unique/different about your story?
I thought the idea of "all you need is one" was wishful thinking, and was so in awe that the little embryo survived. After the discouraging journey of 27 eggs leading to just one embryo, it felt like a lot of pressure, but I am so grateful for Dr. Lannon's magic.
What advice do you have for other struggling with infertility?
