Hi, my name is Amanda I am 38 yrs old and this is my story. In 1993 I had my first child and in 1995 I had my second, being only 19 yrs old I knew that having two children I would struggle raising them so I chose to have my tubes tied. Being 19 the doctor didn't want to tie them until I was 21 . I waited until then and right after my 21st birthday I made the apt. The doctor was hesitate to tie my tubes, he said" what if some day you want more children " ? . No! I was done. After ten and half yr. Relationship my husband and I divorced in 2001.
I moved to another state and in 2003 I remarried and that also was a bad marriage. Divorced in 2009. After a few months I found someone who treated me so well he was also 10 yrs younger and had no children. I just thought this was not going to turn into something serious, well in 2012 we was married .he was ok with not having children. We talked about it some so one day I Googled tubal reversals and Dr. Levin's web site popped up. I researched him for over a yr. I finally said lets give this a shot.
I called his office made my appt and drove the 4 hrs. On March 11 2013 I had my surgery. Every thing went great , I was unsure how my tubes were tied so Dr. Levin let us know there was a chance it may not work. After I woke up he came in and talk to my husband and I said he was able to repair 5 on my left and 4 on my right. The next morning he and his nurse came to the hotel room to check on me. Everything was good and he sent us home. Told us to wait 6 weeks before trying to convince.
6 weeks was up and we started. I became pregnant right away . We called his office to let them know. Checking levels to make sure they was rising. Unfortunately they didn't rise and I ended up going to my own obgyn due to an ectopic pregnancy. He had to remove my left tube. This was the end of june 2013. July 3 I had the dye pushed thru my right tube. Dr said it was blocked and that I will never be able to get pregnant. I started searching for fertility Dr. I made an appointment but I canceled for some reason. September 2013 I became pregnant I went to a different obgyn and she checked my levels. Once again they didnt rise. Oct.3 2013 I miscarried. Dr. Recommend we not try any longer. I was upset.
Oct 29 2013 I was having stomach pain my husband drove me to urgent care. They asked if I could be pregnant. I said no I just miscarried. They did an ultrasound to look at things and a blood pregnancy test. Labs came back positive and they seen a very small dot in my uterus. After several days of labs my hcg levels keep rising and ultrasounds confirming I was definitely pregnant.
June 25 2014 I gave birth to a very special baby boy . Kort William Allen Schlueter 7lbs 1 oz 19 in.
Dr. Levin is an amazing doctor. His staff was wonderful. Thanks to them and the good lord above I have a little miracle.
