I'm new here and I guess I'm just looking for some support and encouragement.
I'm 27 and have an 18 mos DD. A year ago I lost one of my ovaries from a cyst that had twisted it. Not fun. Last week I had surgery to remove what we thought was another cyst on my other (and now only) ovary. It turned out it was in my fallopian tube....basically my Dr had to take out both my tubes but did save my ovary.
Now it seems that IVF is my only option to (biologically) have more kids.
I am very very grateful to still have an ovary but am feeling overwhelmed by the IVF process.
My DD still breastfeeds and I have always planned on letting her wean herself.
But from my understanding right now I would not be able to continue to breastfeed once we start the IVF process. Is that true? I should be meeting with a specialist soon, which I'm looking forward to.
I know I am lucky to have my ovary and everything will work out.
I have always wanted a big family and this was just so unexpected. I'm still taking it all in.
Any advice or info you have would be so appreciated.
Thank you for reading
