About Me: Female, 53, Hoodsport, WA, member since Aug 2008
TTC for 3 years with two miscarriages at 6/7w. Good FSH level for my age but endometriosis is my nemesis. I'm happily married and with two loving pups. We're wanting to increase our joy by sharing our home with a child. A little late in the game but young at heart and i
[More]n good physical shape, we pray everyday for a chance at a family.
"I'm jealous :). Hoping AF will visit soon but levels are still at 5100 as of last blood draw! I really want to try again right away. I hear that it's easier to get pregnant after you have been pregnant. GOOD LUCK TO YOU!!!"
I'm back and getting into the swing of things. Hope you are doing well these days. I met with the doctor the other day and because of my insurance, I am required to have a third IUI. I will begin in late October, just before Halloween. I am really looking forward to my next treatment. If you think the 2ww is bad, try the 2 1/2 month wait! Anyway, I decided to go on a diet right away and have lost 14 pounds, which is basically all the weight I gained during the pregnancy over the summer. I'm really happy about this and will continue to try to lose more and get in better shape before the end of next month. As rotten as having the m/c was, I am glad that I had the experience because I am much more prepared to be pregnant, especially in terms of getting in better shape. :)
Thanks so much for your kind words. It is hard but I really am looking forward and am excited at the prospect of IVF. To me, that's the real fertility treatment. Also, you have to be positive, at this point its just a matter of getting that "good egg". Right now I'm going to enjoy the rest of my summer, not worry about anything and get ready for the fall. Its been great to hear from people like you, it is really a comfort. Thanks again, and I hope you are doing well.
I have bad news. My ultrasound came back yesterday and the baby is not developing normally and I will have to terminate the pregnancy next week. I was bummed but I am looking forward to doing IVF this fall, if all goes well. This pregnancy was a surprise since I did not think I was actually going to get pregnant this way. The good thing is that I got pregnant, so they said the chances of me getting pregnant and carrying it to term is good. Sorry for the bad news, but I thought I should let you know. :( I am sorry also to hear of you m/c. Obviously, I feel your pain....
