Getting Pregnant After Trying for 7 Years: The Success Story of Tiffany Pifer

Tiffany and Zach succeeded in getting pregnant after trying for a long 7 years.

They have tried IUI, IVF and even FET. Now, they are 29 weeks pregnant!

You can read Tiffany’s blog at http://thepiferfamily.blogspot.com/

 

Please give us some background about yourself

My name is Tiffany Pifer, I just turned 29. My husband and I married May of 2006 – he is my best friend.

I work as an office manager at a local company in our town, and my husband is a customer service manager at an environmental company.

We tried for 7 years to get pregnant, several treatments… one pregnancy ending in a loss, and now I’m 29 weeks pregnant with our Son.

 

When did you realize that you were having trouble conceiving? How did you feel? How did family or friends react?

Well, our story is a bit different.

March of 2006 (2 months before we got married) I went in for a normal pap smear. It came back abnormal.Long story short, I had severe Dysplaysia, which was on the verge of being border line cancer cells.

Tiffany and Zach – The Success Story of a Couple Conceiving and Getting Pregnant

My doctor told me right then that getting pregnant would be hard. Zach and I talked a lot about everything.

We knew kids (in the future) is something we wanted. We weren’t prepared to have them at this time so early in our marriage, but with that said, we didn’t want to look back years down the road and wonder ‘what if we would have tried’…

We didn’t want to miss our window of opportunity.

So I got off of birth control and we immediately used the method of ‘not protecting’… The way we looked at it was yea this wasn’t our plan to have children so soon… but maybe it was God’s plan.

We were very open with our family in the beginning… We didn’t quite know the severity of things at this moment…

Our friends and family from the beginning were very supportive.

 

Overcoming the problem: What did you do to get pregnant? Did you follow a particular treatment?

Over the years, we realized it wouldn’t be ‘so easy’.

We tried naturally for a year, we did several rounds of Clomid and Femera, which is a pill that helps ovulation. We found out my tubes were blocked and I underwent surgery to unblock them….

We finally went to a fertility clinic… had 3 IUI’s; none took. We have done 2 IVF’S and one FET (frozen egg transfer)….

 

Have you been able to conceive? How long did it take? Did you experience any side effects of the treatment?

We got pregnant on my 2nd IVF…. We were over the moon excited. After 6 years of trying, we were finally pregnant. Sadly it ended in a miscarriage.

We jumped right back into a frozen embryo cycle and one of our little babies took… We are now 29 weeks pregnant with our son.

I had many side effects from treatments… Everything you could possibly think about – moody, hot flashes, emotional, gained weight, lost weight….you name it I had it!!

 

The “Now”: How do you feel after getting pregnant? How do people react?

I feel so blessed. It still feels so surreal… We are so used to ‘NOT’ getting pregnant, it took us a long time to except we were finally pregnant…

And after losing our first baby, we didn’t get emotionally attached to this baby for quite some time. You stay guarded in fear that something bad will happen…you don’t want another broken heart.

People are beyond supportive. We have received so much love and support from family, friends and complete strangers. We are truly blessed.

We never knew why God had us wait so long for this miracle, but it just makes sense now… I can’t wait to see his beautiful face and hold him. He is truly a blessing from above.

 

Advice for others: What should others trying to get pregnant do? Any do’s and dont’s?

Relax (I know easier said than done)… We thankfully were blessed with patience and faith along this bumpy path.

Throughout all the heartache, I never lost faith in God and his plan for us.

Hang onto hope, don’t ever give up. I know so many are leery of modern day medicine and infertility treatments…

It took us along time to go down that path, not to mention it’s pricey. But it’s so worth it. The doctors are so intelligent, and most of them truly care about you and your desires to be a mother.

Have faith…never be afraid to ask to many questions. Find a support group on line, you would be amazed at how many out there are going through the same thing as you.

Your fertile friends will say things at times that hurt, they are just trying to be a friend… It does hurt at times, but please know they only mean well…

If anyone is putting you down or making you feel stressed let those friends go. You need positive friends and family in your life during these moments… People who will always lift you up when you are weak.

Don’t’ focus on the whole staircase, just climb one step at a time and don’t forget to have fun. Trying to have a baby doesn’t have to be all ‘work’…

It’s important to not forget your partner. NO BLAMING. God choose y’all for a reason. He see’s something amazing in you to be able to go down such a difficult path.

I know it doesn’t seem like rainbows and butterfly’s, but the strength that you get out of this journey and the person it molds you into are worth every step.

 

Anything else that you would like to share with the readers?

Like I said above, just don’t give up. Infertility is difficult…but don’t let it define you.

God is a BIG God and he does have amazing plans in store for you.

 

Editorial Note: Thanks Tiffany for your story, and the lovely advise. We are sure it would be helpful to all couples in this situation. We wish you the very best with your pregnancy, and the years ahead…
