I'm a Blogger Now!

Welcome to my blog spot! I have decided I am now going to become a blogger. The biggest reason for blogging, is to document the journey of ttc.

Adam and I have been ttc to over 2 years now, and it's been a long and trying journey. We know I can get pregnant, and we think we have eliminated the reasons for my miscarriages, but now we wait to get pregnant again.

Our journey began in August 2006, 2 months after our 1 year anniversary. We decided we would try to have a baby, and go at it the all natural way. But, it's hard to get pregnant, when you don't exactly have a menstral cycle except for once every few months or so...So, in January 2007, I talked to my Dr. and she prescribed me 50 mg of Clomid. Clomid has been nicely referred to by co-workers as my "hate pills", because mood-swings were in full effect when I was on it. One month on Clomid, a complete bust. Didn't even ovulate on it.

In July 2007, Adam and I met with a Reproductive Endocrinologist (RE) and we began 5 mg of Femara. That month I ovulated, but the cycle was a bust. But there's hope!

January 2008, our first BFP! It was a very short-lived pregnancy, as I miscarried less than a week after finding out. Met our deductible for the rest of the year, as I went to the ER twice. Word of advice...don't go unless you absolutely have to...there's not much they can or will do.

May 2008 - I had an HSG done, because my RE suspected I had a septated uterus. HSG confirmed the septate, and we scheduled surgery for June 2008. Adam and I decided to try anyways...

June 2008 - 2nd BFP on Father's Day! Was super excited and full of hope! Canceled surgery, but I miscarried in July 2008. Ultrasound showed a sac, but nothing inside.

September 2008 - had surgery to correct the septate. Also removed scar tissue on my right ovary.

October 2008 - Started ttc again after surgery. Again, a bust.

I know it's been a long journey, and it's still not over, but I have faith that there is a plan for us, and someday, when it's supposed to be, it will be our turn to start our family.
