For some reason I haven't ever done a timeline on here. This was a year to not forget, so I decided I better write it down for us to remember someday. Some of you may not know all the terms, but you can look them up.
Here is our timeline to becoming parents so far:
March 2010- get off BC
April-Dec 2010- TTC- Nothing but finding out all of our friends were pregnant.
Jan 2011- get diagnosed w/ PCOS
Feb 2011- start 50mg clomid
Marc 2011- HSG (a small procedure)-tubes were all clear
April 2011- clomid w/ HCG trigger shot
May 2011- clomid, HCG, and 1st failed IUI
June 2011- clomid, HCG, and 2nd failed IUI
July 2011- clomid, HCG, and 3rd failed IUI
Aug 2011- clomid, HCG, and 4th failed IUI
Sept 2011- Decide to move on to IVF. Started BC.
Oct 2011- injections of Lupron & follistem, estrogen patches, progesterone injections. Retreived 8 eggs. Made 5 embryos.
Nov 2011- Transferred 1 embryo, lost 1 other one. Froze the other 3. 2 weeks later found out that it had failed.
Dec 2011- Took a much needed break... Praise Jesus.
Jan 2011- Still enjoying the much needed break of not feeling crazy. my body is thanking me and I'm thanking it.
We are quickly approaching our 2 year mark which is crazy to me. Looking at all of that is so surreal. All I know is time flies when you are trying to make a baby. I also know that looking at this is exhausting in which I have felt every bit of that. I'm definitely thankful all of that is over with and I'm also looking forward to whatever the future holds. My new thing for this year is not to plan ahead. So far I haven't thought past the next transfer. I'm leaving it up to the big guy. No more planning or controlling. It is completely out of our hands at this point. We have learned so much through everything and have grown more than we ever thought we could in a year.
