Today’s Guest:

Today’s episode is special in that there is no outside success story guest. Instead, I finally share my story. After being diagnosed with endometriosis in 2007, we began trying to get pregnant in 2011. We endured two miscarriages in 2012, moved to a RE and then a new RE, and were diagnosed with the MTHFR gene mutation. We began IVF and became pregnant with our twins, Eric and Alexis. At 21 weeks, my incompetent cervix couldn’t hold, and the twins were born but could not survive. This was the lowest moment of our journey. 

More procedures, more pregnancies, and more losses continued until I decided to take control, create this podcast, and ramp up the effort to BEAT INFERTILITY! I became pregnant in 2015 and found out we were having a daughter. We immediately named her Aurora, which means “first light after a long period of darkness.” But the story doesn’t end there. Tune in to hear the rest!

Whom We’re Following:

We are following the journey of Elizabeth. Before being diagnosed with infertility, she and her husband conceived naturally but the baby had Trisomy 18 and they made the difficult decision to terminate the pregnancy. Shortly thereafter, she was diagnosed with unexplained infertility, but they now suspect some level of diminished ovarian reserve. After one cycle of medicated timed intercourse, she became pregnant with her son. Now back to try for number two, they have tried three medicated timed intercourse cycles, two IUIs, and three IVF cycles, which resulted in only one frozen transfer. She’s currently in her two week wait.
