Andrea Hambrick is organizing this fundraiser.
Me and my wife have been married for 5 years together 13 have been trying for 7 years to get pregnant. I have always had regular cycles and check ovulation predictor I was always ovulating. So we started with IUI we did it a total of 3 times at first back to back and then waited a year and did it again. I had a cycle counted my days, did ovulation test and when I was ready it was time. But nothing every time. But after the last one I felt different.
Then I went to a infertility doctor to figure out what was wrong with me and why I wasnt getting pregnant. Did all this bloodwork and HSG and thats when I started having irregular cycles and not ovulating. Then as a result of the HSG found out one of my tubes is blocked and I was devastated. To my surprise my doctor said want us to continue IUI at least 3 more times, because besides irregular cycles(I would take Provera), not ovulating (I always did the trigger shot(Ovidrel) and a blocked tube I was slightly hopeful. Mind you while all this is going on I had already had 2 polypectomies that were latered followed by 2, gallbladder removal and neck surgery more over my 6 years trying to get pregnant journey.
So we start IUI again about 3 years ago doctor had me to just do letrozole 5mg and a Ovidrel shot and was suppose to find out on my wife’s birthday omg weren’t we happy, but it didn’t happen. After that my wife’s brother died and we had to take in her disabled mom and so not having finances we had to put our dream on hold.
Then a opportunity presented itself in the form of adoption by one of my cousins and our world was bright again and we thought our struggle was over but we were wrong the baby was born Nov.1 2019we named him and loved on him, we went home on Nov. 2 2019 and were the happiest we had been in years until Nov.3 2019 when the birth mom came and took him back from us we trusted in someone and it lead to heartbreak.
Cold silence until….
June 2020 we were able to save and try again this time I did letrozole 5mg again, a fsh shot(150 iu) and then a Ovidrel shot. 2 week wait NEGATIVE. July 2020 same exact thing as June. NEGATIVE.
Since one of my tubes is blocked IVF is my last hope since my 6 IUI was unsuccessful, if im not able to do IVF I will never have the opportunity to be what I want most and that is a mom. We are hoping and praying for a miracle and with this grant that would be all we need and would be forever grateful.
2021 has really kicked off Jan. 9 my apartment burnt down and I lost everything so financially it’s really hard right now so this would be the blessing we need. Thanks for listening.
