Thank you, guys. I was just feeling down yesterday and got really worried that my time will be up soon!We have been trying only for a few months after my last m/c in February 2011(waited the time doctor ordered). But as you can read below, it seems that we have been trying for years now.
I had fertility issues before conceiving Henry even though all seemed normal. After a while I went to see specialists. They did the whole thing (tests and all that) and diagnosed me/us with unexplained infertility at that time (in 2008 after trying for over a year). They put me on Chlomid (was totally horrible for me), then Femara, and still nothing. Eventually I went to seek a 2nd opinion, so they found a growth in my cervix. The same day as this was found, I was about to release an egg, so an insemination was done, and I got pregnant, but miscarried. With that mc the growth in my cervix was gone too and 3 months later I conceived Henry without any medication or help (only my ovu kit). This past January I also got pregnant. but miscarried in February. As I am aware of reduced egg quality due to my age, I am just getting exhausted and tired of these years of trying to have a baby. I just don't want to wait around for too long before it is too late. Realizing all of this is sad and adds another layer of complication.
