A lot has happened since last January: I am now a very lucky mom to a sweet little boy who will be 5 months old at the end of the month. It took us (my husband,Mr Siili, and I) 4 years and 4 days since I stopped using birth control before our little guy came into this world.
In short, our journey consisted of 1 surgery for me to remove endometriosis, 2 medicated IUI cycles (clomifen & injectibles), 1 cancelled IUI, 3 IVF cycles and 2 FETs. With our 3rd fresh IVF cycle we were lucky and got our first BFP, which led to our take home baby. We have 1 frozen embryo left, should we want to try once more.
It was a long and heart wrenching journey at times and one I would never want to go through it again, nor wish on anyone else. I can only hope that if we ever decide to try for a second child, it will be a shorter journey. (We’re getting too old to wait too much longer!)
