Due Date: 01/28/13
Remarks: DH and I were focusing on our marriage and each other after the miscarriage in October 2012, so we weren’t actively TTC but weren’t preventing either, and to our surprise I became pregnant (DH & I are both 42). I was no longer temping, or doing opk’s, so I have no idea when I ovulated/conceived. I guess it is true when they say not to stress, and just relax (I truly believe that if it’s meant to be it will happen in God’s timing and not ours)!! I waited and decided to test on our 18 year wedding anniversary using a FRER HPT and got 2 dark pink lines right away. We’re both thrilled to receive this surprise blessing from God. My hCG from 5wks 5 days was 6,294, and the highest it got with the miscarriage at 4 wks 5 days was 112. Thank you so much Dr. Berger for having such gifted hands, I will never regret coming to CHTRC! Please pray this is our keeper!! Thank you! Hugs, Monica.

Remarks: Dr. Monteith did my TR in November 2010. I got pregnant immediately resulting in the birth of my beautiful, healthy,baby girl in July 2011 (she was a month preemie). I then got pregnant in October 2011, 6 weeks later I ended up in the ER in severe pain and bleeding only to find out it was an ectopic pregnancy. March of 2012 I had a m/c didn’t even know I was pregnant! We then started trying to conceive again and after 1 1/2 yrs of frustration I finally got a BFP! I am now 6 weeks, feel great, and doctor says everything looks normal! I am so super excited. We have 7 daughters, so desperately hoping for a boy but as long as our little blessing is healthy that is all that matters! Thank you Dr. Monteith and CHTRC staff! May you all be truly blessed for the work that you do! :)

Due Date: 01/21/2014
Remarks: We are beyond elated that after almost one year post surgery we are indeed pregnant!!!! We are still in shock as we have just found this out. I have had abnormal menstrual cycles since March of 2103 and am currently still have periods. I have been to my OB doctor and we had a sonogram done, however it is simply to early to even see the sac. We think we saw what could be a sack, but are at this point waiting for the pregnancy to grow more. HCG testing was done on Thursday and one to be administered again on Monday afternoon. At this point the levels look great for a normal pregnancy. Without Dr.Berger I would not even be writing you right now. He has made our dreams come true!! Will keep you all updated as time goes on. :)

Remarks: For months I would get frustrated and tell my husband I think I am the small percentage of people it didn’t work for. People would tell me I am trying to hard. I gave up ovulation tests 3 months ago. I cried every month when I would have a period. I was planning on going in next month for the dye test, and my doctor says, well hopefully you’ll be pregnant and we wont do the test. Sure enough I have been blessed by the lord and the gifted talent of a great doctor. Words cannot say thank you enough. Dr. Monteith told me within a year and it will happen, but the waiting part of it was hard. Please pray for the baby to go into the uterus. I will call my doctor as soon as they open.

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 :)

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.
