Hi August Ladies,
I hope I can join this thread with you gals! I just skimmed through the thread, and all your stories prompted me to share my own, although it's QUITE early in the pregnancy.
I was actually on the August 2008 thread 1.5 years ago, give or take. My son Eliya was born August 9, 2009. Second IVF try.
A little history: We were TTC for 2 years, and were unsuccessful due to severe endometriosis and large ovarian cysts. The surgeon who removed the cysts told us that one f. tube was destroyed completely, and the other one underwent 'damage'. He said we'd need IVF, no question. So we did IVF, and had our son.
And so here I am, at the start of my third IVF cycle, doing hormone suppression for about a week (.1 Decapeptyl). Last week, the day I was supposed to get my period, I took an HPT. Miraculously, it registered TWO LINES!! Surprise surprise!! I am pregnant... naturally! Because of my tubal damage, I am really CAUTIOUSLY optimistic. My beta was 235 the next morning. Of course, it's very early days, but I am BURSTING not being able to tell my close friends the story. So again, I hope it's okay to join you guys, given my circumstances...
Wishing everyone a wonderful pregnancy!
