IVF road to baby Tomlinson

Rich and Sara married in April of 2017 and unfortunately, due to unexpected, and unexplained medical complications, starting a family of their own has been difficult.

With 5 failed IUI’s in December 2017, January, March, April and May 2018. Sara and Rich started their first round of IVF in June 2018, which was unsuccessful. In February 2019, a local radio station launched a “win a baby contest” in which the winner received 1 round of IVF and medication paid in full. Rich and Sara’s video made it top 3, but unfortunately, was not chosen as the winner.

In March 2019 they gave it one last shot. On the 21st they were successful in retrieving 6 eggs! The 24th was transfer day then it was time to wait. 10 grueling days of hoping, and praying that it worked. On April 2nd Sara had a faint positive on a pregnancy test, with it growing darker by the day and confirmation on April 5th with HcG level of 92. They were pregnant. April 8th she went for a second blood draw where her numbers rised to 162. not quite doubled, but close. Over the next few weeks, with blood draws every other day they were slowly rising, but not where doctors were wanting to see them. April 16th the ultrasound tech didn’t seem hopeful that it would be a viable pregnancy. A second ultrasound a week later confirmed there was no heartbeat. on May 3rd Sara went in for a D&C.

Doctors feel optimistic that their next round will be successful, but after spending their life savings, and exhausting all resources between personal loans, and credit cards they’re out of money. IVF is extremely costly, and most insurers consider this option an elective procedure.

So, I’m asking you all for help. Help these two amazing, loving, generous, deserving people. Help give them the life they’ve always dreamed of, a family. A baby of their own to love. Any amount will help, and if you cant donate, please share!
