January 2009-December 2010

To bring you all up to speed on the past 2 years....

January 2009- Started "trying"

July- Noticed things were not "normal"

August - Met with regular Doctor

November-February- Clomid (stimulates ovulation)

January 2010-Hysterosalpingogram (tubes and uterus)

February- Referred to Fertility Specialist (Ben got all his parts checked)

Finally we were given a few answers to why we were having a difficult time conceiving. Turns out I have a difficult time ovulating on my own and Ben has a morphology problem (shape of the sperm). In English we are not good mating partners. Our doctor at RMA of Texas encouraged us to move to more aggressive treatment.

March- Colmid IUI (intra-uterine insemination) Negative pregnancy test

May- Comind IUI - negative pregnancy test

June- Laparoscopy (surgery to determine if I had endometriosis) which I didn't

June- Decided to go ahead with IVF (In-vetro fertilization)

October- Started IVF treatment

November- IVF transfer-negative pregnancy test

That brings the 2 years into view. Of course from there are many emotions to go along with every step of the way.
