My journey

Hi everyone . I am new to these boards . I live in the US but I am happy to have found people with my same struggles . I am 38 yrs old I have a beautiful 2 yr old sold via IVF. I have been in my journey for 10 yrs. We did 10 iui’s And then diagnosed with unexplained infertility so our next step was ivf. We had one retrieval resulting in one embryo that was a bfn. We learned we needed ICSI Bc my eggs were not accepting my husbands sperm . I was very grateful to at least to have A reason . Our next retrieval we got 8 blastocysts , this was where my son came in. I felt like I was in a dream. I couldn’t believe my prayers were finally answered . He was born 3 weeks early and only 5 lbs but completely healthy and perfect ! We just did a fet cycle which ended in a bfn so we are jumping right back into another one . Hoping this one sticks because this our last shot at it ! I have come to terms with the fact that if it doesn’t work it’s gods will and be grateful for my son . I want to tell all of you please don’t give up hope ! There is always a chance and if we don’t have faith then we are giving up! Good luck to all of you ! Sending baby dust !
