Hey ladies. I used to be really involved in MDC but find that lately, I'm just struggling to find my place here now. Many of the women that I felt so close to during my peak here are on their 3rd babies by now so I don't even bother trying to reconnect. I hope that you will let me find a new home here.
I'm 24, married to Matt, 26. We just celebrated our 5 year anniversary and have been ttc most of the time. We managed to get pregnant in the summer of 2008 but I miscarried at 12 weeks and we haven't managed to get even a little pregnant since then. We did 6 rounds of Clomid last year and I always responded really well. DH was given the all clear and since everything kept checking out for me too, I decided to have a lap done last month. It was a big financial strain to try and pay for the surgery and we will continue to pay on for many months to come since my insurance wouldn't cover it. While they were in there, they found stage 2 endo. My dr said there was only one little spot on the right but that on the left, endo was covering my ovary, even constricting it and the adhesions had it stuck to the back of my pelvic wall. He burnt off everything he could but then tried to push Lupron. We decided since I wasn't really having any big symptoms that we would try the Clomid for 3 more months, at 150mg this time and then go from there. I just graduated nursing school a few weeks ago and we are very broke right now as I struggle to get my doula business back off the ground. I've already met my deductible for the year so we are trying to figure out what that means and whether we should take this opportunity to try and transfer to an RE, though infertility isn't covered under this plan at all and the closest RE's are 2-3 hours in either direction.
Anyway, I hope to get to know you ladies and join in this journey with you.
