Here we go again!
My name is Nona, I'm 35 years old and going through primary infertility. I did my first round of ivf last October. We retrieved only 3 eggs, and of those 3, two fertilized and were transferred. I did not get pregnant. I put our names back on the waiting list and were supposed to cycle in July (this past summer) but I had a cyst on my right ovary. I was put on birth control and had to wait until now to start again. So now I am on a higher dose of stims and a microdose of Suprefact (both twice a day).
So far, I am two days into my stims and feeling ok. I am really hoping and praying that this is going to be my "finally". My ex husband and I tried to have a baby for 8 years and he didn't want to do ivf. I have been ttc with my now husband for 3 years. I have had only one pregnancy in my lifetime and that was in May, 2009. It turned out to be ectopic. I still mourn that baby... I have a little yellow teddy bear with wings tattooed on the inside of my left wrist and it has the date "May 21, 2009" underneath. That is the day I had my laparoscopic surgery to remove my beloved angel from my tube.
I'm a little all over the place here with this blog entry but the main idea is that I'm really hoping and praying that this second ivf is successful.
