I lurk here all the time. I just decided to post my story in case it offers anyone some hope.
DH and I decided to start a family in December, 2004. Amazingly, we got pregnant on the first try. We were so excited. I got my BFP on 12/27/04. Due date was 9/10/05. Unfortunately, on February 9, they couldn't find a heartbeat and it turns out I had a missed miscarriage. I had to have a D&C on 2/14/05. It was terrible. I ended up bleeding for 6 weeks after the D&C. We had to wait a few cycles to try again. We got pregnant again in 7/05 but miscarried naturally in 8/05.
I started to demand some testing - turns out I have REALLY low progesterone. I was started on Crinone supplements. Then we had trouble getting pregnant. We tried for many months. I had an HSG - all clear. DH had a SA. Not good. They said it was a miracle we ever conceived on our own and suggested IVF. We couldn't afford IVF so I asked to try Clomid and IUI. First clomid/IUI cycle resulted in BFN. Our second clomid/IUI cycle resulted in a BFP, which I received on 5/11/06. My beautiful son was born (5 weeks early by emergency c/s because he was in distress) on 12/22/2006.
DH and I were told that when we were ready to add to our family, to call the RE to line up another clomid/IUI cycle. We had discussed trying again in Fall, 2008. God had other plans though. We got pregnant - on our own - with no drugs, no IUI, etc. in December 2007. We were stunned but are happy that we have another blessing on the way.
I know it is such a tough journey to get pregnant when you've had a loss. I hope that each of you gets the baby that you are dreaming of holding in your arms.
Thank you for posting your story. It is sometimes hard to see that there really is a *light at the end of the tunnel*, but hearing stories from women like you who have recently been in our shoes really does mean a lot and give me hope.
Thanks again for sharing...it is really nice to hear about a happy ending!
Hope the rest of your pregnancy is quiet, uneventful, and easy!!
