Welcome fellow ICLW-ers!

It is December ICLW week! (for those that don't know f it, follow the link to the right for more info). A little about me for those visiting for the first time:

My name is Jess and my hubby and I have been married for 11 years. We have been ttc the entire time but have had so many bumps in the road. I have endo, PCOS and blocked tube. He has Sertoli-cell Only which is a fancy way of saying no sperm. We tried 4 IUIs with no success and have had 2 failed adoptions. In December we had our first FET with donated embryos and it was successful!!! I am currently 4 weeks pregnant! We are still in complete shock. My first beta was 41 and today's was 163! Good numbers!!!!

Well, that about sums it up! I look forward to meeting some new friends this week!


  1. I am so happy that the beta numbers are good! I hope they keep going up! What a wonderful gift for Christmas.

    Happy ICLW.

  2. Your numbers are terrific! ICLW~

  3. Yay! So excited to hear your wait is finally over! What an AWESOME Christmas present:)

  4. wow congratulations! You must be so thrilled, those are some great numbers.


  5. Jess,

    How can happiness like this just keep on going??? I'm SO HAPPY for you!!!! :)

    I don't know much about the medical part of embryo adoption. If you care to share the medical/science parts, I'd love to hear it...so here, specifically, what the #'s mean...the significance of what "good numbers" are. :)


  6. WOW!! Congrats!!! My DH and I are going to try one more IVF, and then our plan is donor embryos if the IVF doesn't work.....again. Good luck!!! ~ICLW
