Update-Joy and Pain

Posted by Ljo , 24 December 2016 · 739 views

I don't even know where to begin. I am pregnant. After four years of waiting for it to happen, our FET finally worked this time. I am 14 weeks as of yesterday. Supposed to be the happiest time of our lives.  
Two weeks ago today my mom passed away and I am lost. We were told in November that the radiation and chemo didn't work on her tumour and we we...

Another year come and gone

Posted by Ljo , 06 October 2016 · 528 views

Tomorrow I turn 39 and another year marked as childless.  I've taken a break for a while from the forum to regroup and kind of focus less on infertility but I've still been trying to start my family in the meantime and doing treatments. I found that I wasn't really fitting in anywhere on this site as all my previous contacts had moved on and I was st...

Haven't written in a while because I haven't had much to say. Nothing has changed in my situation in regards to fertility. Just waiting.......and hearing negative results.
 
Currently I'm waiting for IVF#2 to start. Instead of starting, they found a large 7cm cyst on my ovary and so I'm on birth control waiting for that to shrink. 
 
This p...

Infertility is sucking away any happiness I had

Posted by Ljo , 10 May 2015 · 2,083 views

Here I am sitting and writing another post with my bags partially packed in the bedroom getting ready to leave for a while. I just don't know how to stay in the same house with my husband and get along anymore. I'm miserable.
 
I just started the process of long protocol IVF this week and I feel totally and utterly alone. My DH couldn't make that app...

I thought things would be different by now

Posted by Ljo , 12 January 2015 · 1,395 views

It's been two years trying to conceive. A year and a half with help and nothing. I just thought things would be different by now with some progress and I feel like I'm nowhere.
 
We've been told that IVF looks like our next best option and so we've been trying to wrap our heads around that as well as looking into finances and how to afford it.

My Place to Let it out

Posted by Ljo , 13 September 2014 · 1,312 views

I'm going to vent....again. Seems like that's all I do on here lately! Trust me, I'm not a miserable person all of the time. I promise. This is just the place I can come and let out all of the negative emotions I have that I keep to myself in my everyday life.
 
A "good" friend of mine that I've known for 20+ years asked this week if my husband and I...

It Hurts

Posted by Ljo , 15 August 2014 · 1,111 views

A couple of days ago, my friend was gathering stuff to start selling at her garage sale this weekend and she asked if there were any toys or things that my brother and sister in law might be interested in having since they are due in October. I mentioned it to my parents as well and my mom asked me to pick up some stuff for their house when the baby comes...

Random thoughts

So I had my surgery almost a month ago to have my fibroid removed. It went so much better than I anticipated. Hardly any pain at all; in fact my periods were way more painful than that. I had been sick with a bad sinus cold for about three weeks before my surgery and was only starting to feel better about a week and a half before my surgery. I was startin...

Wanting to stay in bed under the covers

Posted by Ljo , 15 March 2014 · 1,170 views

Today is a bad day for me. This afternoon I had to attend my best friend's sons 1st birthday party. Forty of her immediate family and friends. Included in that? About 7 babies and toddlers from the age of 3 months to two years. All the moms sitting together discussing sleeping schedules, the newest mommy gadgets or their child's newest developments. Wh...

Surgery booked

Posted by Ljo , 12 February 2014 · 747 views

Well it seems like I'm finally getting some answers and things are moving after starting this journey last July.  My Doc found one fibroid that needs to be removed and a lot of other fibroids within the walls of the uterus that are just going to stay for now.  Add to that my diagnosis of PCOS and my husband's low morphology and the news doesn't...
