Anyway, I wanted to give you all a quick background on me. There's a TTC timeline on this blog too, but here's the gist...
I am 35, DH is 36. We have 2 labradors and a cat and have been married for 10 years now, TTC for nearly that long. I have "unexplained infertility". As we continue with our RE (Oregon Reproductive Medicine) I have found bit by bit that I have a hormonal imbalance which causes me to not ovulate. I didn't respond to Clomid, and did 3 injection cycles which I did respond to, but ended up BFN each time. I ws supposed to start IVF this past March but my RE found that the fibroid I had was too big and ordered surgery. My abdominal myomectomy was March 11. I have been off work for 6 weeks and I go back next week.
DH and I will be trying one last natural cycle next month. Actually in a week. The big differences now are:
- No more fibroid pumping estrogen into my system!
- Dietary changes - I am mostly organic now and have cut back on everything processed, although I can't resist peanut m&m's :)
- Currently on BCP, which I am hoping will kick my next cycle into high gear.
If that fails I will have IVF in June/July. If THAT fails... well, I don't know.
That's my TTC life in a nutshell. Similar to others, with the same emotional rollercoaster that goes along with it. I try to stay positive, in fact my RE has commented on how positive I am despite the disappointments I have had.
It's a front.
I am miserable through this. BUT I keep my hopes up that something will work this year and I will no longer have to deal with this.
I don't only blog about TTC, if you read further you will know I am pretty random.
Now if you will excuse me my dog is kicking her water bowl around the kitchen. I think she's trying to tell me something. :)
