The initial doctor at the clinic diagnosed me with PCOS and told me to keep trying clomid. “You’re young” he said to me multiple times. I felt like he was brushing me off because even though I was young – it wasn’t working!
I’ve debated sharing my story, partly because I am on the other side of IVF with a positive outcome. I realize how lucky we are and how others are not – I almost feel guilty knowing some walk away completely empty handed. I decided to share because I know when I was in the thick of RE appointments, IUIs, IVF procedures, and waiting for our transfer, I just wanted all of the success stories I could find. Success stories gave me hope, but I didn’t see many stories like mine. So I want to share and possibly give someone hope.
My husband and I got married in June of 2011 and could not wait for the day that we would be parents. All growing up, all I ever dreamt of being was a mom! We spent a few years just the two of us and then started trying for a baby in 2013.
