Success Story: Hopeful

My husband and I have been married for 7 years and have been trying to have a baby for 6 years. We got pregnant after about 3 years of trying and we were so excited that we were going to be parents-- and the best ones at that. We lost the baby at 8 weeks. I thought that my broken heart would never mend. We decided to take a year off of trying because sometimes they say it will happen when you're not focusing on it, wrong. Finally my doctor put me on Chlomid, I was on that for 7 cycles and nothing happened. She referred me to an infertility specialist and the ball started rolling fast; we decided to do IVF. It was such a scary decision to make but even with only one ovary, our success rate was high. We went through a lot with all the shots and the emotional roller coaster that you're on, but we knew it was going to be worth it. We went in for retrieval excited as ever. They put me under, but when I woke up I knew something was wrong. My eggs were no longer there. They believe the last hormone injection I had given myself 2 days earlier had attacked my eggs. We were devastated. My husband and I after talking to the Dr. have decided to try one more time for a little miracle. I thank God every day that I have a wonderful, devoted husband and I pray that He will bless us with a child. We start IVF again in March, so please pray for us as we will for all of you!
