Hi My name is Jo.
I have been trying to conceive for 7 years now. I was 33 when we began trying. First 1.5 years we tried on our own. After the first year of trying we beganing incorporating Clomid to noavail. Finally a new doctor decided to do numerous tests to see why I wasn't getting pregnant. We found out I had endometriosis. So after 6 months of Lupron, I was told either get pregnant or have a hysterectomy. I then started seeing a fertility doctor. We did 2 IUIs with clomid, then 2 IUIs with Injextion. Nothing. Husbands sperm count is very high.
July 2004 we tried IVF for the fist time. There were 2 embies but not very strong. There cells began to break down before the transfer. I got a BFN.

We just did our second IVF on December 7th 2005 (this time using donor eggs. We transferred 3 embies, and we got a BFP. I was so excited. I just turned 40 and I was pregnant for the first time.

But, on January 5th I began to bleed. Wen't to the ER and they said I had miscarried. I went home that night and cried myself to sleep. The next morning I went to see my OBYGN and she said that my cervix was still closed so we had an ultrasound done. I was still pregnant and the was one sac, but that could not see a fetal heartbeat. I was only 6 weeks pregnant. So, I was on bedrest for the weekend if not longer. They wanted me back in on Jan. 13th for another ultrasound.
I misscarried over the weekend.

I am devastated. I am hoping we can afford to do IVF one more time. And if we can I pray that it takes.

I keep feeling I must of done something wrong to lose my baby.

Thanks Souris and Kat,
I was actually reading this forum during my 2WW and wanted to post then but afraid that I would jinx myself.
But I believe I need the support of other women who know what I am going through.
I have lots of friends who feel so bad for me but, I truly think that over the last 7 years while that have had their 2-4 babies, I really don't think they truly understand the emotions and pain that I have gone through.

One friend actually said that you were just meant for greater things. As if I was suppose to give up. They don't understand. I know she meant well but that statement made me more upset.

I so don't want to give up. Being pregnant for just 6 weeks made me realize how much I want a baby, and how much I want to be a mom.
That greater thing that I am meant for is to be a very loving and supportive mom to my child or children.

So I am here!
And very thankful that I will be able to meet new friends during my continuing journey to motherhood.
