ahhhh i was so hoping i wouldnt have to join this thread!! damn it!!
for those of you who dont know here is a little bit of my story so far. DH and i have been TTC for 2 and a half years now. After a year of trying by ourselves we went for some testing. DH was perfect, and they couldnt seem to find anything wrong with me except my thyroid was a little off. i was put on synthroid and we kept on trying. after about 6 months and still nothing we decided to do a lap on me to see what was going on. i was shocked and heartbroken to find out when i woke up that i had stage 4 endometriosis! this is considered the most severe stage of this horrible disease. the endo is all over both of my overies, and i also have some inside my overies as well. both of my tubes are bound to my bladder and bowels. one of them is open, but the other one they couldnt even see though all the scar tissue.
i was given a 1% chance of getting pregnant every month and were told we should move on to a fertility specialist.
last may we found our RE, and since my endo was so bad she wanted us to move right to IVF.
we started our first cycle for aug/sept, and were canceled before the ER due to the lupron over suppressing me. so we decided to try again with a lupron microflare cycle in oct/nov. again we were canceled before ER due to a dominant follie that grew 8mm over night leaving the other follies in the dust with no way to catch up!
we started our 3rd cycle last month using an antagonist protocol and finally made it to ER! when i woke up i found out that they only got one egg. i was so scared. amazingly enough that egg was mature, and fertilized and grew into a perfect 4 cell embie and we did a 2dt. i did everything i could to make a good home for my lil fighter, but last friday i got the heartbreaking news that it was a BFN!
I'm still trying to get over the pain of all the emotions DH and i have been through this past month, but i went for my F/U appointment on wednesday, and we are trying again at the end of march!!
i already started BCP's and will be on them until march 20th, and then we will be starting an even more aggressive antagonist protocol.
i am scared and nervous, but hopeful that this time i will get my BFP!
good luck everyone! i dont know what i would do without the great support from all of you wonderful strong woman!!
here's to a huge BFP list for march/april!!!
