My husband, Matt, and I have been trying to start a family since we got married in October 2012. After being diagnosed with PCOS and only having one fallopian tube, we began fertility treatments in November 2014.
We have gone through nine IVF transfers – transferring a total of fifteen embryos. Six of these transfers resulted in pregnancy, but sadly, all six ended in miscarriage.
After seeing countless doctors and trying different protocols, we have made the decision to move forward in our journey by using a gestational carrier, with the hopes of building our family. Matt & I are extremely blessed to have a dear friend that has offered to carry for us, which will help us tremendously with costs, but we will still have a lot of cost involved (surrogacy agency fees, fertility clinic fees, medications, lawyers, psych exams for both couples, medical expenses, etc). Please follow along on our journey to three!
I only recently heard about your story and I am so happy for you and your family. My husband and I have been ttc for more than a decade and it wasn’t until this year we started our journey with some medical guidance. I was recently diagnosed with PCOS and am currently recovering from having a tube removed while preparing for the next steps.
Reading about your journey brings so many tears to my eyes. Sorry for all the pain and suffering it took to get where you are finally at. Your friend is an absolute angel. I am so happy for you and your husband to finally get what you have deserved for a long time. How exciting it will be for you to celebrate the upcoming holidays with a new addition.
Congratulations to your and your family.
