How did I get here????

I'm not even sure where to begin in introducing myself. Well I'll start with this: I'm 33 DH is 31 we have one 3 1/2 y.o DD with us. We decided to start ttc again in January 2010. We had a chemical in January 2011 at 5 weeks and were blessed in June 2011 with another BFP. At 18 weeks along our baby girl was diagnosed with down syndrome and a week later she at the fetal echo we found out she had passed. Ainsley was born sleeping on Oct 8 2011 at 20 weeks. Soon after I started feeling unwell and was put off by many docs until finally a 15 cm tubo ovarian abscess was found Nov 2011, and a lap was done. The abscess ruptured during surgery...after heavy antibiotics and a weeks hospital stay I was sent home. 2 weeks later with a repeat u/s it appeared the abcess/cyst was back. In Feb 2012 I was refered to a specialist who decided to put a drain in the cyst to get rid of or shrink it anyways. After 5 weeks pain returned and another lap was done the next day. I lost my left tube and ovary and pathology came back that I indeed was full of endometriosis and had an edometrioma in my ovary. He noted that my right tube looked of normal size and shape, but that he could see scar tissue around it. So, yesterday I had an HSG and sure enough my right tube is blocked
I will be started a long protocol IVF with my next cycle.
I am so unsure of this road...I never thought I would end up here as I'm sure you didn't either. I'm scared, and feel left in the dark.
I am happy to be traveling this road with you becuase I can not imagine doing it alone. I'm sorry we're all here
2 beautiful angels born. One here on Earth and one in Heaven. Hoping for another Earthside.

I'm sorry for your loss and your recent Dx. With your next cycle you should join a cycle buddies group. You'll get support and info from people at the same stage as you....the cycle buddy groups are right below this introduction one
Good Luck with your journey and wishing you much success!
TTC#1 for 3 years before being blessed with an IVFwICSI Miracle in Jan, 2010
TTC #2 for 3 years ~ No luck so far ~ IVF & FET cycles a bust. Moving onto donor sperm. Not sure when yet...
Check out my profile for info on previous cycles
Sept 2013 - Still waiting on referral to an IF Specific Urologist - Hubs wants a second opinion before he ok's the donor sperm

The great news about you though, is that you should be able to get pregnant (with IVF) and hold a pregnancy as easily as anyone else your age. Chin up, you'll get your baby, and this will all be in the past one day.
Good luck and maybe join one of the threads, like the June/ July one

9 IUIs, 12 months Fermara, 4 months Clomid, 5 rounds of injectable, 1 LAP, 1 HSG, 2 Uterine Biopsies, 1 Postcoital, 1 IVF, 2 FETs... 2nd Fesh Cycle IVF - ++Beta 110!
TTC#2 - Dreams coming true... Surprise BFP Au Naturel! Never really started trying, but never gave up hope on dreams coming true. 20w2, after 6 days of strict bedrest, we lost our baby boy, Emmett to my incompetent cervix and he was born sleeping. 24cm long, 0.67lbs he was the most perfect little angel and has brought with him many lessons for us to remember him by.
Lightening strikes twice apparently>>>> May 24 ++HPT, Followed by ++Beta. Numbers are low, but doubling. EDD Feb1/2013 ~ Baby Boy arrived 5 weeks early in under 2hrs. Left me with 4th degree tears. 2 years later, still pending reconstructive surgery In that time hubby had a vasectomy. Never thought we'd have a chance to take fertility into our own hands
