Remarks: I am scheduled for my first blood draw tomorrow. I had been on the pill before my TR due to heavy periods, so I wasn’t sure if I would ovulate so soon after stopping the pill when i had my TR just 2 months ago. Excited and nervous!! Not wanting to tell anyone but my husband since it’s so early. I will be 37 next month and after 2 healthy pregnancies (DD’s now 6 and 4), thought we were done. So glad God changed things and I had my TR! My girls will be excited but I can’t tell them or they will share the news with everyone!!

Remarks: My husband and I were shocked to conceive so quickly! My pregnancy is going very well and has been closely monitored by my Ob/gyn.

Location: Richlands, North Carolina
Date of Tubal Reversal: 12/16/2011
Date of Pregnancy Test: 12/7/1012
Due Date: 7/23/2013
Remarks: We originally started using an ovulation kit and stopped because it became a little frustrating. We actually stopped trying around June 2012 because I was taking care of my mom who was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. She passed away in August of 2012 and my focus on having a child dissipated. So I consider my family very fortunate to have been able to conceive under such strenuous circumstances. My doctors are pleased with my health and progress and have stated that I represent “the perfect model of a pregnant woman”. The only thing thus far is a concern for low iron that can be rectified with pills or a diet.

Remarks: This is a update on my surprise pregnancy with my 1st TR baby. It is a girl. Currently i am 24 weeks and 6 days. So far everything looks wonderful. She seems to be almost 2 weeks ahead of her time. Unfortunately my husband won’t be here for the birth of his child due to him being deployed but when he gets back and sees her for the 1st time, it will indeed be a priceless moment. I lost hope after an ectopic where I lost my left tube and one miscarriage but God had other plans for me. When i gave up i got blessed with this baby. I just want to thank Dr. Berger and his whole staff to make this miracle possible. He is one talented and wonderful man who made it possible for my husband to become a first time dad and for my family to be finally complete. Thank you Dr. Berger. I am forever grateful for this gift :)

Remarks: We tried to conceive for years, and I used ovulation prediction kits, charted temps, and did a million other things trying to conceive, but I had no luck. Then, a few years after my tubal reversal, I developed a fibroid on my right ovary. I had surgery to remove the fibroid on 2/28 and became pregnant the following cycle.

Date of Pregnancy Test: 03/27/2013
Remarks: I found out I was pregnant only when I had major pains in my stomach and back. A week later, levels at 7000 I was admitted to the hospital and that night had surgery to remove the ectopic pregnancy that they finally confirmed in the right tube. The tube was badly swelled so they removed it too. I’m left with one tube. I’m thinking it’s my short 2cm one but I have to check my papers. I guess I will look into IVF in the future because two of my old gyns here said There’s no problem for me getting pregnant with a 2cm tube just staying pregnant is the problem. The embedding can’t happen in the short period of time. Although I have read otherwise being 39 puts me in a bad spot to wait. Oh how I wish I was 20 something again… My current gyn, an incredible dr. said “Miracles do happen…” IVF  just seems to be the best route from here on. Thank you for all your help in giving me a chance(s) to get pregnant again.

Due Date: 10/19/2013
Remarks: Tubal reversal in 2006. I have short tubes, to be honest I cannot even remember the lengths. I think 2L and 3R or it may be 3L and 4R? I’m 40 now and just had a positive pregnancy. Of course it’s still too soon but the fact that I’m pregnant is a miracle and a blessing. We are hoping for the best. I’m not spotting nor am I having any pain. I’m about 5.5 weeks and my hCG Monday 2/18 was 708. I re-did my blood work yesterday, not sure if it’s increased. My doctor did a Ultrasound yesterday and nothing could be seen but they said it was still too early. I did however have a cyst on my left Ovary. She saw two little dots in my uterus but she said she cannot say it’s a baby or not because it’s too soon. We are praying and keeping faith that this pregnancy will take. Hopefully my hCG levels will have increased since Monday and the baby will be where it should. Thank you once again Dr. Berger.
