Hi Ladies,

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.
