Unexpected Disappointment

So DH and I started our TTC journey in Oct 2010 and TTC with an RE July of last year...our story is on here somewhere but long story short I have had a irregular AF forever (maybe 1 to 2 times a year) and he has a low count. I was also about 80lbs over weight. So when we started last year they advised us we would be doing IVF becuase of our history and his count. We are very lucky that our insurance covers anything at all but it is only 3 rounds per live birth or up to 100,000. The idea that we had three chances to have a baby or finance having a child scared the hell out of me. I decided that I would attempt to loose weight first. I had read countless studies on obesity and pregnancy harships so in my mind if I didn't loose the weight and the treatments didn't work I would always wonder if I could have changed it. So since last September I have shed 60lbs! I am very proud of myself...and the DH to, he is down 35! 


A few weeks ago we decided to go back to SG. After another test for DH his count was up to normal (likely from stopping smoking) and they suggested we try IUI with clomid. This excited me as well becuase we also get 3 shots at IUI with insurance so that gives us 6 total chances. When I got AF naturally the other day it was awesome timing so they didn't have to go and induce one with medication. I went in this morning for my day 2 blood levels and ultra sound. I left super excited and got my scrips filled for the clomid, etc. The RE told me they would call me back with my levels and let me know what was next. 


I got the phone call an hour ago. She told me my FSH level was 11. That I was actually in the process of loosing a pregnancy so this round would be canceled. I feel like the wind has been knocked out of me. Obviously I knew this was a posibility after the round but we were just so excited to start a round and it was over before it started. And it is good that I concived natuarlly but know the question is why my body rejected it before it even started developing. So many emotions running through me right now.

im sorry that it didnt' work out but kudos to you and your husband for 1) losing weigh and gettinghealtier and 2) conceiving naturally.  Nothing I can say will make you feel any better about losing a pregnancy but you still have a chance with your covered medical asisstance.  hang in there.
