TTC Timeline

Although we have only been trying to conceive for two years, it seems like it's been forever. Two years is a long time but I know that there are so many people that have been trying for much longer and my heart goes out to them. It will happen for all of us, I just know it!

    We Meet
    I met the man of my dreams on this sweet, sweet night at a party. He was the roommate of some co-workers of mine. We said "hello" and the rest is history!

    The Question
    On September 14, 2012, the man of my dreams asked me to spend the rest of my life with him. He spelled out "Marry Me" in rose petals and lit candles all over our two bedroom apartment. Of course I said yes, he's the BEST!
    I said "YES!!"

2014

  1. 12/14
    We Need Answers
    Labs for me and semen analysis for him. We find out right away that he has a low count and what is there doesn't swim. We will need to start IVF if we want to have a baby anytime soon. We have a consultation with Dr. K and start the process.
    Start Testing

    Let's Do This
    6.22.15 Histeroscopy shows everything is good to go, we'll start stims and get the retrieval done next month.

    Shots, Shots, Shots
    07.17.15 Retrieval goes well but we have to hold off on a fresh transfer because I get overstimulated. We get 13 eggs, 11 fertilize via ICSI, and 5 make it to freeze on day 6.

    Waiting is the worst and my body is terrible... I ovulate through the medications and our transfer is cancelled. I guess we'll try again in a couple months.
