My name is Kayla Kitts and my husband's name is Alex Kitts. We got married October 19, 2019, and have been together since September 1st, 2015. On December 26th, 2016, I found out I was pregnant. The next month I got scheduled with the OBGYN for an ultrasound. When they did an ultrasound I could tell something was wrong, but they just told me to come back in a couple weeks and they would do another one. Then at that second ultrasound came the words that felt like my heart had been ripped from my chest, there was no heartbeat. I was absolutely heartbroken.
A couple of days later I had a D&C and was put on birth control. For the next 3 years I dealt with awful side effects and a lot of emotional distress, however come November 2019 we decided that we wanted to try again. However for almost the next year we had no luck. October 2020 comes along and I noticed that I have missed my period. Thinking I was pregnant I took tests at home but they were all negative. I went to my family doctor and they did tests that came back negative as well. In November I went to another OBGYN who did some blood work that came back consistent with having Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.
She recommended that I see a fertility specialist and put me on Provera to try and give me a period, which did end up working for the month of December. In January my husband and I went to the fertility clinic. Since then it has been a lot of testing and on February 22nd we finally got to go over all the results with our fertility doctor. My anti mullerian levels are consistent with PCOS, my vitamin d levels are low, and I'm on medication now to raise my estrogen levels. Our next step if everything goes well is to try our first round of IUI.
This is where my anxiety has risen a little because while my insurance has covered our appointments so far, once we start the treatment side of it we have to start paying out of pocket. We fortunately have enough money saved back to cover this first round of treatment, but my biggest fear is that it will not be successful. Right now it's just a waiting game for a couple weeks until we go back to the doctor.
