Hello all-

 

My name is Susan Clower. I am originally from Lancaster, PA but currently reside in El Paso, TX with my husband. We have been married since 06/2008. Our original plan was to wait two years to try to start our family, but an emergency surgery due to stage 4 endometriosis caused us to have to try immediately. We have been trying to five years. 

 

I endured my last surgery last year and then completed a cycle of Lupron. When I finally got the green light to try and conceive again and were told to do so as soon as possible, and my husband deployed to Afghanistan before we had the chance. He just came home on Sept. 1 and we started trying right away again. 

 

I joined the site because I am now 5 dpo and in my TWW. I have gone through this alone (with my husband's love and support of couse) for the past five years, but am slowly losing my mind. =) I am just looking for others who are going through the same thing and have an understanding. =)

Hello Susan,

 

I'm afraid I don't know what all the acronyms mean, but welcome! I hope you find some of the support you need here.

:wWelcome Susan! I'm going to respond on another one of your posts because I too have had severe endometriosis, so I empathize so much with your journey.

Please check out our TTC forums as there are so many others there going through the same thing and the women there are super supportive. There's even a TWW thread! :)

Hi Susan!

I'm new too and a transplant to West Texas too hola.gif!  I can't imagine the pressure with TTC when your husband is not home!  My husband travels a lot for work (training, emergency response fire fighting, etc) so I can understand just a little bit of what you are dealing with. Ugh you poor thing!

 

I am trying to plan ahead and made an appt at a fertility clinic in El Paso with a 4 month lead time...by then we will have been TTC for a 14 cycles.

 

Wishing you baby dust and luck with your TWW! (I'm TWW too! 7 DPO)
