Jean's Story
Posted August 26, 2007

I am the proud mother of a 4-year-old daughter, however, I had a terribly difficult pregnancy and delivery with her (preeclampsia and premature delivery by 2 month resulted in a month stay in NICU). So, I waited for nearly 3 years before trying again. I was so excited and innocently felt that I couldn't be dealt a bad card again. I was very wrong. I became pregnant right away in March of 2006, we were so excited, however at the 3 month mark I went to the bathroom and I was bleeding.

During a very long night in the ER I found out there was no heartbeat and I was sure to miscarry. I opted for a d&e. Then I became pregnant in August, only to repeat the same thing with a d&e in October. I was sent to a fertility specialist and had all sorts of tests run. It seems the most recent baby that I lost, a girl (probably shouldn't have found out) was lost due to genetic causes or blighted ovum.

Many, many tests later and 1 month on Clomid revealed that my FSH is really high (17). I am only in my early thirties so this came as quite a shock to me. It is now 3 doses of Clomid later and 5 IUI's and I am again waiting my 2 week wait to see if I might have gotten lucky. I am really not sure what I want to do next- continue with Clomid, IVF with donor eggs, adopt. It is a difficult and expensive decision to make.
