2006 – 2007- Tried to conceive naturally for 6 months.

2011- IVF number two failed. Frozen embryo transfer number two was a success!
2012- Evie was born January 6, 2012. 6 pounds 3 oz, 19 inches long. Our perfect miracle.
2013- IVF number 3 failed. Frozen embryo transfer number 6 resulted in a miscarriage at 8 weeks.
2014- IVF number 4, transfers 7 and 8 failed. IVF number 5 ended in a chemical pregnancy.
2015- IVF number 6, 7, and 8. Banking embryos and CCS testing with New Jersey clinic. May transfer of two embryos was successful. TWINS!!

Our family is complete but we have two remaining little boy embryos we are seeking to give to a Christian couple in an open adoption. God has richly blessed us and we will honor him by giving these babies a chance.
Alisa is now writing under a new blog and would love it if you would follow her there as she spends a year dedicating her time to better glorifying God.
One thought on “Our Fertility Journey”
Thank you so much for your blog regarding your IVF process. I had a good laugh today because of you and I really appreciated it! It a journey going through all the highs and lows of this fertility process and sometimes reading someone else’s story makes us realize we are not crazy and understand feelings we have not yet identified. Thanks again!
