First IVF a Success | Jennifer & Tom’s story
Pregnant after 1st IVF
My husband and I have been married for 7 years. I am 37 and he is 38 we met at work and fell very hard for each other very quickly… we lived together for 2 years, then got engaged January 2, 2004 and married on November 13, 2004 we had the most perfect wedding and where beginning the “Perfect Life together” or so we thought. We started trying to have a child after our 1st year of Marriage and had no luck we both got tested in 2006 and we found out my husband had fertility issues that made having our own child with his sperm impossible, and it was devastating to say the least. It took the next 3 years to get through the pain and despair that we would never have our own biological child. Then we started to explore our options we finally decided to do IUI with donor sperm, it was a very tough decision but we were determined to have a family. We did 5 IUI’s, 1 natural, 2 with femera, 1 with clomid and 1 with injectables and none of them worked in 2009 or 2010.
We came to a point where we just couldn’t handle the roller coaster of emotions and the devastation any longer. So we stopped everything at the end of 2010. So for November and December 2010, and January 2011 I took time to recover mentally, physically, and decided to make a change. My husband and I set up a consult with Dr. Kiltz of CNY Fertility in Syracuse NY in December to start our First IVF in February of 2011.
I changed my diet completely to all fruits, vegetables and organic meats and started doing Zumba to lose some weight. I also started taking Royal Jelly and at the recommendation of Dr. Kiltz downloaded Circle + Bloom’s IVF mind-body program and started listening to them religiously night after night after night.. It transformed my subconscious and made me very positive and relaxed beyond what I knew I could be… we did the IVF Cycle in February 2011 and had 13 eggs at retrieval, 9 fertilized and 4 made it to maturity, we picked the 3 best embryos and had our transfer March 3rd, 2011.
We got our first ever POSITIVE Home pregnancy test on March 11, 2011. I kept testing all weekend and had two blood tests done. The first beta was 100, second was 242. My first Ultrasound was March 28, 2011 and we prayed that we would see our little miracle for the first time and get to see the heart beating strongly and we did, the heart beat was 140, it was the most amazing thing we had ever seen, I am now 24 weeks and everything is going great! We are having a BOY!
What I would tell others that are just about to purchase your product: Miracles do happen and don’t ever give up on your dreams of having a family!
My husband and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
