Infertility/fertility thread partII

Hey girls,

As our old thread had to be locked because the excessive spamming i thought it was about time to open a new one. Iíve been really wondering how are things going for you Jamie, Kara, Barkley (sorry if I am leaving somebody out). I miss your reading your stories and knowing I am not alone, I miss your support.

So, I'll start with my update.

On July 11 we lost our second pregnancy, I was 11 weeks (just like the first time 2 years ago). As things went wrong the first time Dh and I agreed no to make it ďpublicĒ until we had passed the 3er month, well we didnít make it, so besides my mom and our doctor nobody knew. I must say that I am relieved we didnít tell cause its so hard to have people asking you every second how your pregnancy is going when you are no longer pregnant. So we are dealing with it together and, although its been very difficult and painful I am starting to feel better and able to talk about it. As usual doctors donít know what went wrong, you know the old Chromosomal issue story. I am kind of losing faith, at least right now I am not even sure if I wanna go through this again, I donít think anything can compare to this pain and sadnessÖ

I felt like sharing with you guys and I hope you have some better, happier stories to tell

So, how are you girls doing?

I'm so sorry. I know how you feel as I said in the other thread, I too have lost 4 pregnancies. It is hard each time and you do start to lose faith. After my third loss, I was ready to give up. And 5 months later I was pregnant. I just didn't think about it and let nature take it's course. Don't give up hope!!! It will happen.

Miscarried in April-had 3 eggs
The day I miscarried, my Best friend called from Nebraska and told me she was pregnant (she was on the pill). She was freaked out, not one to get pregnant on purpose. She had her baby girl on June 23rd.
Round 2 failed w/one egg
Currently in round 3-I am on day 12 of shots Should be almost finished with the shots. I will know more on Saturday AM
If this round fails, I am done until December as I have forked out 3500.00 in the past 3 months.


**Glad you started this thread. I was thinking of making another

Ahh, CSRE, I am so sorry. Many hugs to you.

I know I have lost my last 2 at the same time as well. It's like I get excited that I am pregnant, then the fear overwhelms me because I am so afraid to lose it. I lost my son's twin at 11 weeks. It really is hard that late in the pregnancy.

CSRE, I am SO sorry! I wish there were words that helped, but there isn't...it just plain SUCKS! Just know we understand that it sucks and its okay to be angry, sad, and mad...I still am!

On a brighter note...YEAH! You started this thread! THANK YOU! (I am too wussy and way too much of a closet poster to start it on my own)

As for me, it its 2 months this Saturday since my last miscarriage...so I am back on for the official TRYING. I sort of started AF this week all by myself (the only other time I did that I got pregnany...last time). I say sort of because it is still trying to be an actual one, if youknow what I mean. Yesterday I went to a store and the emplyee was bragging about being pregnant and then I heard and she was as far along as I would have been! I left the store, I couldn't deal. Then last week a girl from my old church that was in my Sunday school class found me on myspace....SHE IS PREGNANT!!! And yup, she is only 16!!! I was pissed! I was crying and pretty angry that she gets a baby and doesn't really want it (she is keeping it). Then found out the dad she has only known for a month and a half (as far along as she is). LIFE IS NOT FAIR!!!!!!

Another brighter side! My best friend who has had 3 back to back miscarriages had her healthy baby boy this evening!!! I have been crying! Seeing him after what she has gone through gives me hope that we will all get out of this sad thread of infertility thread!

OMG! I have rambled on and on! Thats what happens when I don't get my post on!

I know what you are talking about, I've been there myself. But there's always hope! I have two beautiful boys now and your children just wait for the right time to come! Fertility treatment is the worst emotional rollercoster there is, but it's SO worth it in the end (both stress and money), so don't give up!

I'm glad you started this thread too Coral as I've been wondering how you are all getting along (I didn't feel it would have been appropriate for me to start it as I'm not TTC).

I'm so sorry that you had another miscarraige Do you have difficulty getting PG aswell as keeping the pregnancy? or do you fall PG quite easily? I hope the docs get to the bottom of it soon

Ladies, I really hope that you all overcome the fertility obstacles presented to you. I honestly believe that these challenges will make us more resilient and better parents, as much as this battle sucks.

Coral, I am so sorry about your recent miscarriage, 11 weeks a long time to know you are pregnant to have it all taken away again. I cannot imagine the pain it must cause.

Jamie, I am really hoping this next cycle works for you considering that you are going to take a break afterwards. I know how bad you want to give your son a sibling.

Kara, I am sorry that you are dealing not only with the miscarriage but the unwanted pregnancies of others. I had a very close friend get pregnant by accident and I was a mess. I was not a good friend to her when she was going through a rough time dealing with the unexpected pregnancy. She and her husband did not want to have kids, her husband is too immature and selfish... But it has changed him for the better. So I believe now that it was supposed to happen for them because of all the good the baby has brought their lives.

I wish you all success. Infertility makes us so crazy but the good news is that only very rarely can it not be overcome. Stay strong ladies. I believe in each of you!

Aw, thanks guys. You really make me fell better, I did need to share, let it out and talk about it with people that understands, YOU!
I am so happy we restarted this thread, Iíve missed you so much!

Kara i totally know what your talking about, my inlaw knocked up this girl last year and they were considering an abortion, life is so unfair sometimes (thankfully they changed their mind and had the baby, heís a gorgeous little boy today)

Aw Jamie, well, enjoy your break, our intimate life is much better when we are not an a schedule

Fordie, I donít really have difficulties getting pregnant, I do need clomifen but I always make it in the second round, sadly the positive is just the start for me

Thanks Liz


I really hope to read some good news soon!

I dont know if you've been asked before but, mom of 5, are you actually mom of 5?

Yes, I am. I had no trouble getting pregnant with the first two but it was a hard and long two years before I had my third when we finally decided to try for a another child. And then I was blessed with the fourth and fifth. And I can say that I am truly blessed to have all five of my children. It was a hard road but worth every heartbreaking moment. And I know each one of you ladies will get to experience the joy of having that beautiful little bundle of joy very soon.

Coral, I am really glad you restarted this thread
I have 2 children but the process was difficult. I have had 2 miscarriages (was planning on a third some time back) but it never happened.
Even though I didn't post in the original thread very much, I would read and keep up to date with everyone, and say a little prayer. As I am now

Good luck everyone

Coral, Jamie, and Kara ~ I'm really sorry we're all STILL on this rollercoaster. I've been wondering how you all have been and hoping for some good news....

As for me, I still have yet to even see a positive pregnancy test I had 2 unmedicated cycles this spring before a laparoscopy that turned up nothing, sadly. Well, I guess that's the negative, glass-half-empty view. I did have a clean bill of health, but was really hoping for something like blocked tubes that would explain why I'm not getting pregnant.

So, last month, on the lap cycle, I did O, but didn't get pregnant. So, dr. wanted me to try one more unmedicated cycle b/c he did a small amount of ovarian drilling while he was in there and thinks it may "reset" my ovaries/cycle. So, we'll see. He did say that I have pretty much come to the end of the oral medications road and wasn't far from IVF.

In the meantime, I've made an appointment with another fertility dr. in my area that will do injectibles. (My current dr won't do them for moral/ethical reasons with multiples).

So, I guess I'm hanging in there. My sister had her baby last month, and I've hardly talked to her, much less seen the baby (they live 3 hrs away). It's just so hard......I can't believe this is really happening to me

Hey Barkley I have heard that ovarian drilling is very successful. I really hope that works for you. Injectables are successful, but they are very expensive. If you do, try to go through rxsolutions.com My co-pays are only 50.00 where I used to pay 300.00-500.00 per cycle with insurance.
I am close to ending the injectables...Tuesday or Thursday and then my trigger. But I can feel them working. I hope I don't get 22 again

Barkely, my eyes are full of tears reading your post. I know exactly where you are because I have been there. I am heartbroken for you. I was told that I had one more chance with clomid/IUI and they were going to give up on it and recommend IVF, which was not covered at all with the insurance plan I had at the time. I changed insurance companies and got a new RE. She took one look at the results of my HSG and saw something the other doc did not. I had a two part surgery and was pregnant on my second try with IUI. GET A SECOND OPINION NOW. Do not give up until you see another doctor. If I had given up I would never have had the surgery that enabled me to be pregnant now. It is unfortunate, but some doctors miss things. We were also in the unexplained infertility category and now I am pregnant. In most cases unexplained infertility is a result of the doctor missing the problem.

I am still so excited for you Liz.
And Barkley, stay strong girl! This is my 3rd and last round on injectables for a while so we are hoping it works. You will get pregnant. RE's are great.

I LOVE that Liz is pregnant! She gives so much hope to this thread! Thank you for that!

I had to tell you all a quick story I knew you guys would understand.... On Friday we went to see my friend and her baby at the hospital. My oldest son, who is 5, has been asking about her baby the entire time she was pregnant. He was so excited to see him out of her belly. He asked me if the baby would let him hold him. I told him that Jackson (new baby) would love that because he knows him already because he knows his voice and will be so happy to meet him! My son asked why the baby already knew his voice, and I told him because he talked to the baby so much while he was in his mommy's belly. He seemed happy with that and we continued to walk. After a bit I looked down because he was so quiet, and he was crying small quiet tears and walking in the store. I stopped and asked him why he was crying. He looked at me kind of with a mad face and said that he talked to our baby all the time and he wanted to hold our baby too because he loved our baby. It broke my heart! 2 months later and even my 5 year old son is still hurting and understands more than he or I even realizes. I hugged him and he said that he will wait and he will hold the baby when he gets to heaven too. He has more answers than I have!

Ok, sorry quick story went long. It just meant so much to me, I am so proud to have such an amazingly loving son!

Iím sorry Barkley (is that your name? I always feel weird calling people by their avatars without knowing), donít give upÖI totally agree with Liz on getting a second, even third or fourth opinion, what ever it takes

Kara that is so sweet of your boy! Amazing. I really hope you can give him a little brother/sister soon. I wasnít sure if you already had kids, I am glad to hear you do, and know that you and Jamie have already been blessed . To be honest, at this point, I would be thankful to at least have one healthy baby .

Oh, and I totally agree on Liz being our inspiration, I cant wait to see that pretty baby girl!

Kara, I am crying, that is too sweet of him. I hope you get pregnant soon.

Coral, yes, every morning when he wakes up I am so thankful. He was actually a "cancelled cycle" baby I had 22 follicles and I gave myself the trigger shot at home myself He is our true miracle.
Here is a new picture:

Sorry that you have to go through this Coral. I really hope that things turn around for you and you are able to get pregnant again soon. I never had infertility issues, but I've had my share of other "female issues". It's just not easy being a woman, plain and simple.

Stay strong and positive Coral.
