About me

I’m Cammy, aka “Hammy”, and I was born and raised in Northern California. I moved to Europe in my 20s where I stumbled upon my favorite person and convinced him we should be friends. Then, we dated and married and put down roots in good ol’ Denmark. We’ve been trying to conceive for a long time. It’s a lonely, sad and sticky road very few people know how to navigate – no matter which side you’re standing on.

This blog is a place for me to share the things I don’t often tell others. It is a space for purging, crying, pounding the keyboard, and brutal, brutal honesty.  Secondarily, this site is for you — the loving, curious soul who is not fertiley-challenged, but knows someone who is and wonders what she feels. Thank you for reading! Thank you for caring.

Our ART Medical Journey: 6 IUI with hormone stimulation, 7 IVF Fresh Cycles, 1 FET IVF cycle (3 with ICSI), 1 pregnancy that ended at 8 weeks, and 2 chemicals. Altogether 14 rounds of treatment to get one live birth. Baby boy born full term July 2016.  I consider myself blessed.

My diagnosis: Poor egg quality, mild endo, subclinical hypothyroidism, elevated FSH.  Though in IVF they can retrieve between  6-8 eggs, they present fragmentation and delayed growth after fertilization.

We are considering: AUGMENT treatment by Ovascience, OvaPrime, Donor Eggs, adoption.

One thought on “About me

  1. I just found your post titled “Tough Times” on Blushing Foreigner…it made me so SAD for you. Then I found this blog and read your post about being pregnant, but I am still listening to to Tough Times…so I am still crying. BUT, I wanted to tell you that my sister-in-law has 6 month old twins after 5 years of fertility treatments! I am glad you persevered! I really hope you keep up on your makeup videos because I have FOUR extremely pale daughters and we are clueless about good colors for pale skin! I have lupus so sometimes I am Very Low Energy so I research stuff. Right now I am researching lipstick shades for girls with NW15 coloring! Blessings! -Karen
