Since my Laparoscopy was scheduled in a town about 2 hours away from home, and we needed to be at the hospital at 630am, we arranged to stay the night before the procedure. We went early the day before and spent the day exploring the lovely little mountain towns. It was honestly the perfect way… Continue reading 1st Lap Complete
I have all these symptoms and some that aren’t listed. We were just referred for diagnostic surgery for endometriosis on Friday and today I get a call saying they have an opening and can fit me in on Tuesday if I am available!!! Eek!! And I am available. I am still off work from a… Continue reading Going for Laparoscopy on Tuesday
Well… there is an upside to infertility. And in my case it means quick referrals when doctors think they found something else wrong with me. In the past year I have had 2 people suggest I have endometriosis. First by an ultrasound tech who though she saw adhesions on my left side (near my dud… Continue reading Endometriosis?? Apparently Maybe…
Life has continued to throw more obstacles and challenges at us. At the end of September I was in a car accident. I was able to walk away from it, even though my car was not drivable so I am thankful it wasn’t worse and I wasn’t seriously injured. However, it left me with a… Continue reading Life keeps pushing me down
For the past 2 and a half months we have been taking a break from infertility and all the things we normally do to try to get pregnant. We kind of knew when my fertile period was (just based on previous months) and during that time we did try to have sex every other… Continue reading Gearing up for our next cycle. Time to get healthy!
To say it has been a long and hard year is an understatement. In the past year we have dealt with one IVF (converted to IUI due to poor response) failure, and 2 IUI failures. My dad passed away unexpectedly in November and just this week we had to say goodbye to my very beloved… Continue reading It has been a hard year. But I refuse to wallow.
My beloved kitty of 17 years is really struggling. She has been in kidney failure for a while (like a couple years with very mild symptoms), but has been doing well until the past couple of weeks. Then she had her first seizure early this morning when we were still sleeping in bed. She was… Continue reading We can’t catch a break
Thank you for all the support last week. I am not sure which part made it so difficult, but I suspect having all the hormones raging in my body and then my first birthday without my dad and Father’s Day without my dad was too much to take with another failed IUI cycle. We had… Continue reading Feeling Better
Well today was just a crappy day all around. It was my birthday. I turned the dreaded 3-5 where now my chances of a successful pregnancy go even lower. And all day I have been haunted by thoughts of my dad, and grieving that he isn’t here with me and won’t ever be… Continue reading Another one bites the dust
I forgot how awful the TWW is after a fertility treatment…its so hard not to read into every tiny little thing . I think I may be out. I am on Day 20 and having some on and off period type cramps and my lower back is a little sore. Both usually happen around now… Continue reading TWW
