We are trying to raise money to cover our IVF expenses. Here is a little background is information on us.
We were married on 2-14-03. Gus was born that following September and Ariannah was born Jan. 19, 05. After Ariannah was born Sam and I did lots of Genetic testiing for ourselves. The military dr that was treating us in San Diego, gave us the news that our DNA/genetics were so alike that we would have disabled children with every following pregnancy. At the age of 19 I was convinced to have my tubes tied. We were happy with our situation until we got to a new duty station and really wanted to expand our family. We went through more testing to see if I was a canidate for a tubal ligation reversal. As a requirement for surgery we had genetic testing done again. To our supurise we learned that we had been misdiagnosed, and were ok to have more children. I went through with the tubal reversal. I couldn't get pregnant after a year, so a friend recommended surrogacy. Since after delivery your chances to concieve are so much higher. I have since done 2 surrogacy pregnancies in the attempt to naturally concieve my own child.
Jumping to present day
I started to see a fertility specialist on June 2013. We have done all the needed test to see what was going on. Today we finally did the most important one of all. The HSG(dye-test) was done to see if my tubes were open and GUESS what they weren't. My Dr stated that our only choice for another child is to jump straight to IVF.
This is what brings us here. As a military family we can't afford the IVF treatment cost. Our insurance doesn't cover IVF or IUI(not even a option for us)
I am reaching out to friends, family, anyone willing to help. Anything helps to get us closer.
Thank you for taking the time to read our story.
