This is my journey to motherhood. It's a bumpy road, but I'm traveling it whole heartedly.

Hi everyone, my name is Melissa and my husband Rob and I have been trying since May of 2007 for a little one. I'm currently on my 3rd IUI attempt, CD6. I'm taking Letrozole on CD3 thru CD9, and then I'm doing Menopur shots on CD10 thru CD12. I'll be going in on CD13 for a follicle check, and I'm guessing an IUI before January 1st. It's been a really hard 2009. We finally saw an RE and were diagnosed with MFI (abnormal shaped sperm) and given a less than 1% chance of conceiving naturally. I'm praying that this IUI will finally work for us, since our next option is IVF. Unfortunately our insurance doesn't cover IVF, so we would have to take out a loan to pay for it. My dream is that it won't come to this and everything will work out in our favor for once. I look forward to getting to know all of you!
My name is Melissa and I'm 28 years old. I've been married to my husband for six years. We've been together since we were 18. We started TTC in May of 2007. I've been thru 8 rounds of Clomid, 3 IUIs, and IVF#1 which all resulted in BFNs. FET#1 and IVF#2 ended in chemical pregnancies. FET#2 resulted in our little miracle Liam, born 8-17-11. This is now my journey through motherhood and past infertility.
