Imagine having your next round of IVF cancelled due to COVID-19.
Today’s guest was diagnosed with unexplained infertility after many years trying.  She experienced 3 unsuccessful IUIs and 1 cancelled IUI, and 1 IVF cycle that resulted in a miscarriage.  Crystal Simpson, a military wife went off birth control about 6 months after getting married.  She knew something was wrong and went to her OB/GYN for testing, but the testing showed no issues and she was recommended to a Reproductive Endocrinologist for an Intrauterine Insemination or IUI. After 3 IUIs and 1 cancelled IUI none of them resulted in a positive pregnancy test.  Crystal was determined to become a mother and decided to undergo IVF all while moving and travelling back and forth from Kansas to Maryland.  After having a fresh transfer with her last viable embryo she went in for her 8 week ultrasound only to find out her baby boy was measuring at 5 weeks and she was miscarrying.  In this episode Crystal takes us back on her journey through IUI and IVF all while moving as a military wife, how her family and friends supported her, and how God’s timing is perfect even in this pandemic.
