Mike and I have had some issues with infertility. My obgyn sent us to a specialist in St. Louis, we are about 20 mins out in Illinois. Fortunate to live so close to a resource of some great hospitals and doctors! The first specialist my obgyn recommended couldn't get me in to mid June. I spoke to a friend who has been through the struggle of infertility. She recommended her dr. who got me an appt in April!

At the first appointment, the doctor was mostly concerned with Connor and the possibility of it happening again. He wanted to run two different blood tests and send me to a genetic specialist. We were told not to try in the mean time.

The genetic specialist believes that Connor had Noonan Syndrome, based on his autopsy. We can never know 100%, since we can't do more blood work. The good news is that she thinks this was a spontaneous mutation. Meaning, it wasn't my husband and my genes together that caused it in any way. It is a small comfort, because we still don't have him, but we don't have to worry about it in the future. (of course I still will!) It is a very slim chance it would happen again.

They did a blood test that tests for over 160 genetic disorder on me. I came back as a carrier for only one, and that was something that dealt with chronic kidney stones. Nothing that would be fatal or even show up in a prenatal manner.

The other blood work came back showing I am positive for mthfr. This means that my body doesn't process folic acid correctly. They have me on Folguard to help my body get the correct amount of folic acid, along with my prenatal. They also have me on one baby aspirin a day, because the folic acid issue puts me at a higher risk for blood clots.

I went to the doctor (infertility specialist) Friday. He did an ultrasound of my ovaries to make sure my body was producing an egg and it was maturing correctly. It was, so I got a shot of HCG to give it a growth spurt and a "timed" release. It also does something to help my uterine lining I guess. He also did a test to make sure my cervical mucus wasn't aggressive. It wasn't! (finally an appt of all good news).

The doctor is now confident in helping DH and I have a baby! This month we have the HCG shot and timed trying basically. They are also having me start progesterone on the 29th. *fingers crossed* If this doesn't work our next step would be an IUI.

Thanks for always being so supportive. I'm feeling really good after getting all of these results back and am ready to get trying again!
Suzie, good for you for going to a specialist! I think it is empowering to learn more about our bodies. After my third miscarriage (1 was a vanishing pregnancy after my 1st miscarriage), I too went to a specialist and found that I have the MTHFR (yes, I read that as a bad word every time lol) gene mutation. I am heterozygous C677T and A1298C and am also on a methylfolate supplement. I found that the amount they wanted me on was way too much (side effects galore!) and in combination with my prenatal, it was making me feel crazy. I feel much better now without the "folic acid" (which I've come to think is bad, at least for me) and am happy that I learned about this folate thing and am on the RIGHT supplement. I've also learned some other interesting things about clotting (seems to be fine, but my body doesn't rid itself of the clots very well) and my immune system (and how it isn't functioning correctly).

Point is, I am so glad that you did this and I can't wait to see what the future holds for you guys!

AND, to everyone else, your babies are so adorable! I was so happy to see a page full of wonderful pictures. And carlini - thank you for posting about Dominic! I was thinking about him and hoping you all were doing well. I can't believe how time is flying! And congratulations to Arctic Mama!

Thank you! I believe I was heterozygous as well. I can't remember exactly what she said (have it written down somewhere), but I know it was one of each (what they consider good and "bad"). I haven't had any issues at all from the folguard, thankfully. Thank you for taking the time to write it all out!! It really does help to hear others have dealt with the same.

We start the next round June 18. I go in the morning for more of the same ultrasound of egg, check for aggressive mucus, and HCG shot. I don't know we will be trying "naturally" again this month or moving on to an iui. I don't know that the specialist really knows until he sees how things are on the 18th. My birthday is June 19, so I'm hoping for a belated bday gift.

I had stuck in my head that last cycle was the last one where we would have a baby in hand before Connor's 2nd birthday if everything went well. I was upset at first, but shook it off. I know ultimately it's fine. It was just one of those weird things I thought about!

The appt went well. He basically said that he is expecting us to be able to get pregnant without an iui or further intervention because all of the tests have came back fine.

He did the ultrasound and said I have a beautiful egg forming lol so got the shot and told DH and I to get busy for the next few days. I have to start back up on progesterone Monday and get some blood work Thursday to check progesterone levels.

*fingers crossed*

Thank you! He seems confident. He told me basically it's a waiting game and with nature and otherwise you have a 20% chance each month of it happening.

Hi ladies,

It's been a long time since I've checked in here! No, I'm still not pregnant, but I'm going in for my first round of IVF next month!!!!! I have my injectables ready and all my appointments set. It's been such a long, hard journey for us and this is still no guarentee it will work, but it is our best chance. We went through 6 failed IUI's before deciding on IVF. It's a huge commitment financially, plus the injection and appointment schedule, the retrieval, and the actual transfer. I can't believe we're almost ready to get started! I don't think I've really let myself get excited about it yet. OK, maybe a little! Just wanted to update y'all. Anyone else here gone through the process?

Good luck!!

I have not gone through IUI or IVF yet, and hoping to not get that far. However, I have a very close friend who went through 10 failed IUIs (insurance reasons) before IVF. Their first IVF worked. She was originally pregnant with twins, but lost one at 6 weeks. They have a healthy happy 1 year old and the surprise of baby #2 (they were shocked didn't think they could have any naturally) due in August! She said she kept a printed out calendar of when to take what meds and appts etc.

I started up on progesterone again today. Dr. is having me go in Thursday for lab work to check my levels. I was just reflecting on how appreciative I am to be in the hands of this very capable specialist at this point. Prayers that good things happen this cycle. If it does happen this cycle baby would be due right around big brother Connor's 2nd birthday.

I'm feeling optimistic this cycle, even though I really have no more reasons than any other cycle to feel optimistic. If it does happen we would know around the 4th of July. I am planning on being a little "mean" and lying to my family and saying it didn't work if it did. My mom's birthday is July 28 and I would love to surprise her by announcing through a birthday gift that we are expecting. I know I probably sound like a crazy person thinking about all of this ahead of time, especially with all the difficulties, but I have to keep optimistic!

Good luck Suzie and Shana! So happy to see some progress being made and you both sound positive.

Ceecee - I am no help, struggling here too. Breastfeeding is harder to stay on plan than being pregnant! DS2 is almost 6 mo old and I think my body is just starting to normalize. I am still 10lbs below pre preg weight but I have some serious weight to drop so I need to get to it!

Good luck Shana! I don't any experience with IVF but know lots who have.

Suzie- fingers crossed for the 2 ww! keep us posted

Things are going great here! Hard to believe Miles will be 6 months soon. Time is flying. We finally got Miles sleeping in his crib, and surprisingly it went very smooth. It was definitely harder on me We are starting solids at 6 months and can't wait. We'll be loosely following Baby Led Weaning with some advice from our Pediatrician. First orange veggies, then green veggies, fruit at 7 months and then protein at 8 months. We've started a garden growing carrots, green beans, greens, etc for the little guy (and us!).

So happy for you Alie! We loosely follow BLW too. I always start with avocado and go from there with the veggies. We don't give too much fruit until they can eat it themselves (pincher grasp!) and then we add protein. DS1 never liked purees so he got avocado and then small diced things like sweet potato, carrot, peas, apple, etc. I would roast the veggies in a little coconut oil to soften. He was quick learning with the finger foods! DS2 will be 6 mo on the 6th and we have started already with a little avocado. When he started watching intently and reaching for our food, I let him have some. I think DS1 was also about 5.5 mo when he started. It's fun!

This cycle didn't work. I'll have to call the doctor tomorrow to find out when my next appointment will be. I'm taking it pretty hard. I think I really wanted it to happen this month and was feeling optimistic it would. Aggravating.

I'm sorry Suzie. Hang in there and let us know what they say. TTC DS2 was one of the hardest things I have ever done so I can only imagine how you are feeling at this point. Sending positive thoughts and hugs.

Taryl ~ Congrats!
Shana ~ Good luck! IVF is a long journey but so worth it! Please keep us posted.

It's been a while since I've checked in. I'm glad to see all the adorable babies growing and getting so big! DS is doing extremely well. He gains weight slow and is in the 5-10 percentile, but he'll catch up. He's still on a bit of oxygen but hopefully for not too much longer. I’m still pumping and it’s a huge hassle, but he’s oh so worth it. Babies are wonderful. He makes me smile every day.

I've gained a ton of weight. I'm giving myself some slack because of 9 months of extreme stress and that's just how I dealt with it. But things are settling down now, and it's time to start eating healthy and taking care of myself. We're lightly considering having another baby. Later in the year we’ll meet with a high risk OB and have an evaluation. After what happened with my son, it's going to take a lot of serious thought and prayer to make that decision. In the meantime, it's time for a serious lifestyle change.

Called the Dr. office today. I have an appointment for July 14. He wants to do the same (egg ultrasound and HCG shot), but double my progesterone. We will see. I will give myself a few days and then shake it off and get ready for the next cycle.

Debbie - So great to hear from you! I am also trying to get back into the swing of things and drop this weight. I keep going up and down the same 10lbs. I am 10 lbs below pre-preg weight though but man, I have a lot to lose! Im so glad Dominick is doing well an growing and thriving. Good luck on the baby making decisions. It's a big decision, we were there once but we see our boys together now and know that it was right for us. We are done now though, 2 is it. We dont want to be outnumbered lol!

DS2 is 6 mo old (yesterday). He has 2 bottom teeth and is such a happy baby! DS1 just adores him. I think he will be crawling soon, he is very strong! I took all the pics off my phone but I will post one soon.

I missed your good news! Baby Dom is doing great. I totally feel you on the pumping, I hated pumping. Such a hassle but it is so worth it to watch them grow up well. I personally think it's great that he is in the 5-10th percentile. On the charts, woo!

We have so much to be thankful for!

Question - when do teeth start making an appearance? I think we might be on the verge of one cutting through. DS is 5.5 months adjusted age now.

Hannah got her front bottom teeth at 4 or 5 months, those are usually the first to come in. The top front ones are next after that, I believe.

Both my boys has 2 front bottom teeth at about 4.5 mo. DS1 had 14 teeth by the time he was a year old. We get our teeth early in this family!

We'll look forward to a tooth soon then!

Suzie ~ I went the femara, ultrasound, trigger, and progesterone route to get pregnant with DS. Femara (or clomid) can make you release multiple eggs each cycle, so it takes less time to get pregnant. I had three mature the cycle I got pregnant. I also ovulated late in my cycle - which deteriorates egg quality, and the femara fixed that too. Maybe that's something to discuss with your fertility specialist.

It’s a frustrating process and it seems like time drags on, but before you know it the baby is here. Hang in there. It will happen.

He is doing everything but the clomid. I ovulate right on time every month, so he doesn't want me on clomid. He has mentioned it and why he isn't using it. Thank you for the input though! It is frustrating.

Suzie - I dont have personal experience but I frequent the TCOYF website and I read that Clomid/Femara can simply make your ovulation stronger. You may be ovulating but it may not be strong enough. Anyway, something to think about if you dont get pregnant soon. Unfortunately, TTC is such a waiting game! I am so looking forward to your good news, it will come soon I just know it!

Thank you, Andi! I'm trying to trust this specialist's judgement for now. He is so open about talking about everything. If it doesn't happen soon I may open up a dialog with him about it, but I know multiple people who have been to him and his plans have worked. I'm keeping an open mind and trying to be patient.. which is hard! ha ha

So great to hear about baby Dominic! He is doing great And major props on the pumping, Debbie! That is awesome!!!

(((Suzie))) I just know it is going to happen soon.

It has been a big couple of weeks for our little guy. He has both of his bottom teeth coming through! The first one came in at about 5.5 months and the second just yesterday. He was baptized, turned 6 months and started real food! It feels like he is growing up so fast.

so HAPPY to read everyone's updates! Dominic is SO CUTE and I'm so happy to hear he's doing well!

Suzie - I'm sorry it didn't happen this month. Relax and take some time for yourself. All of the medications and schedules can be difficult and stressful. Oh, and I noticed you were on baby aspirin for clotting - did your dr test you for any other clotting conditions? Mine has be on heparin for clotting...he said he didn't like aspirin, and he explained why, but I didn't really understand it. I've heard of women being on either - or both, so just thought I'd ask.
