    I'll add on:
    **Treatment(s): (ex. IUI, IVF, accupunture, adoption etc.) IUI with Clomid - round 1: miscarried after the 3rd IUI, had to take a break since the pregnancy was a partial molar, round 2: 1 failed IUI and 1 round of Clomid with no IUI, but a BFP.
    **Diagnosis: unknown after lots of testing
    **When was your due date: Nov 2013
    **Any other info? I was admitted to hospital at 38w5d due to low amniotic fluid. LO was born 2 days later and is now almost 15 months.

    **Treatment(s): Day surgery
    **Diagnosis: Uterine septum
    **When was your due date: October 14, 2015 - had him the day before induction on October 20.
    **Any other info? Once my septum was removed we got pregnant right away, but lost the first pregnancy. I fell pregnant again the cycle following my m/c.

    eta: sorry about the huge pic

    Can I share? We didn't have conventional IF, but it took 2 years and 4 pregnancies to have our beautiful rainbow baby. Born 7 weeks early but super healthy!

    Both of mine are IUI babies. After trying for 1.5 years, we finally went to the doctor and found out that I have a very low egg count/ovarian reserve. We attempted IUI and got pregnant on the first cycle. DS was born Nov. 2012. A couple years later we tried again for about nine months naturally and then went back to do IUI again. This time I was told that my egg count was very low and our chances for pregnancy were slim to none. My AMH level was .03 (normal for my age is around 1.0). Miraculously, I got pregnant again on the first cycle. DD was born June 2015. They are my everything!

    Thanks for responding, girls.! This is just the cutest inspiration that I needed at this moment!

    @DenverMom: Two seriously adorable kids on your first IUI each time is awesome!

    @babycanuck: The bigger the picture the better!

    Awww so happy to see this thread pop up again! Love seeing all of these miracle babies!
    My son, an IVF baby. After two back to back losses I was tested and found to have a balanced translocation between chromosomes 18 and 20. Nearly impossible to have a healthy pregnancy/live birth on my own so we need PGD.
    I had 13 eggs retrieved, 10 fertilized, and in the end there were 8 embryos tested and only one was good - and that one embryo is now my 14 month old (today!) son:

    I love seeing all these new IF babies! Alice and Blake are 18 months old now and every day is an adventure. This weekend we celebrated the birthday of my sister's IVF twins who are 6 months younger than A and B. After all those years of trying, it's unbelievable to think my sister and I have four babies between us!

    @SweetiePie: Your cute little boy was sure one rock star embryo! (As a side note - I thought those were snakes in front of him in the picture for a quick second!!) I bet you were stressed out when your 13 eggs ended up as 1 embryo. You are truly an example of how it just takes 1 good embryo.

    @twodoghouse: They are adorable!

    What a great thread!

    Bennett came after 5 years of treatment - 8 IUIs, 2 surgeries, a miscarriage, 1 failed IVF, and 1 successful one. We never really got a diagnosis - I have DOR but no reason why, and I had an arcuate uterus (hence the surgeries). He was born January 20, 2014. I think the weirdly shaped uterus was the big problem because I'm currently pregnant naturally with a little brother for B.

    @twodoghouse: I still remember you going through your IVF journey like it was yesterday, it was right when I joined the IVF thread.. I just never get sick of seeing A & B! And the fact that your sister has IVF twins - though it probably feels like you were both dealt a crappy hand (IF and IVF) what a blessing to have each other to relate to on such a personal level!

    @agold: I was sitting at my desk at work when my RE called to tell me I only had one good embryo. I cried my eyes out, lamenting my bad luck and bad chromosomes. He said to me "I don't think you understand. The fact that you have one is a miracle. I didn't want to discourage you earlier on, but I was fully prepare for you to have none. I thought this would take several rounds. This is an amazingly good thing!"
    It really put things into perspective for me. Sometimes we think we know what our blessings and miracles should look like, but we have no idea.

    ETA: yeah, I took the picture with the gourds that are shaped like snakes and it still shocks me for a second sometimes. 😄

    **Treatment(s): 6 failed IUIs. First with IVF (Transferred two (day 5) FET embryos; fertilized with ICSI and no PGD)
    **Diagnosis: first 3 IUIs with unknown diagnosis at one clinic; switched clinics and was diagnosed with PCOS and DOR. Tried another 3 IUIs. Unsuccessful. Moved onto IVF and got my first ever
    **When was your due date: Oct 16 2015; babies (b/g twins) born Sept 5th after my water broke at 28 weeks and a scheduled induction at 34 weeks.
    **Any other info? I don't regret the IUIs. I stand by and understand the choices I made to stick with IUIs before proceeding with IVF.
