So, it worked! The IUI that had 2 very far apart in size follies, all of my antibiotics I was on and all the odds felt like they were stacked against us, but I am pregnant with #2! We had a positive beta on September 5th, and the levels were 90. September 7th my level… Read More Cycle 6 IUI#3 update
We had our 3rd IUI for baby #2 done on Thursday, August 23. We had a 23mm follicle on the right and a 16mm on the left. I have never had two follies so far apart in size before. I feel like that was going against us. I also ended up with a YI the… Read More Cycle 6 IUI #3
August 19th was 5 years since I was first officially diagnosed with PCOS. 5 years battling infertility. And my fight is still not over. Not sure if it will ever be.

I honestly have always believed I have this issue. I finally asked Dr. S about doing a post-coital test… Read More CD12 Update…Here we are again

I keep trying to tell myself I cannot let this consume me like it did. And in a sense,… Read More Worries and Fears this time around
Well I am behind on my updates for this cycle but it has been a weird one. So I had my cycle start on the same day as my negative beta but since it was not full blown the doctor wanted to count CD1 as the following day which was April 5th. He changed my meds… Read More CD14 Update
Well, here we go. This is the blog post I have dreaded to type for over a year. I am going to sum things up the best that I can. Or maybe I won’t. I don’t really know. I think writing this will also help with my healing process. Although there are some things I… Read More Jaxon’s NICU Journey
