My DH and I have been TTC for 2 years and 3 mos to no avail I have PCOS, Endometriosis and only one ovary. Everytime I see or hear somebody who already has a child and complains about trying to have another I get really irritated. I know it's hard to try over and over again and have problems and every month AF comes you get really upset. I just want to say atleast you have one (or more) I would kill to just have ONE. When I was younger I wanted a big family but once I found out I had a huge tumor from my left ovary to my liver I was scared I couldn't even have one and would appreciate it if I could. I'm not saying it isn't hard for those who have one (or more) and I'm not trying to be mean but be glad that you have one already. Again it's hard going through the infertilty process but atleast you can look around your house and remember the feet pattering on the floor and seeing the proof of children in your house while those of us who don't have one yet look around our houses and wish for that/View Thread
I know my OBGYN told me and DH not to actvily TTC until my health is under control but so far with my diet and exercise things are doing a lot better!!! My blood pressure came down to 127 over 88!! Although we are not activly trying we are taking no precautions and part of me is still trying. So technicaly we are trying while working on getting healthy as well.
Anyways I'm really irritated and hurt and wanted to vent to people that are going through the same things as me and those who understand the heartaches that TTC can cause.
I have a friend who I try to talk to a lot and let know whats going on because she's been my best friend since jr high. The other day I got on to facebook and her status said that she went to the doctor because she has been having her period for the last three weeks and was told she couldn't have children because it was either PCOS or early menopause. I sent her a text to see what all was going on and what the doctor said..... She told me her boyfriend found out she had an OBGYN appointment and thought it would be funny to say she found out some bad news! She asked me if I thought it was funny!!! I was soooo mad and hurt I can barely see straight!!! Why in the world would you joke about something so sensitive? I know it wasn't directed at me, I know it was her boyfriend that wrote it but still!!! I mean COME ON!!! People do have those problems and its getting more common!!! Have some common sense!!!
I am also VERY annoyed with another friend as well, she is 22 and pregnant with her THIRD child..... She is complaining that the pregnancy is so hard and she just wants it over with! I am at my wits end and VERY close to chewing her out and saying "Atleast you can get pregnant without a lot of issues! If you want to complain so much than keep your freaking legs shut!! I would kill to have one child let alone THREE!!!"
Auugh I am so annoyed!!!!! Why are people so insensitive and rude? I'm getting sick and tired of it!!!!View Thread
I had a Dr. appointment with my OBGYN yesterday to see what our next step was going to be mainly because my endometriosis has come back even though I had my surgery last april. They took me off of the clomid for the two cycles I was waiting for my appointment until we figured out our next step. Whether it be no surgery and just go back on the clomid and continue TTC normally or with artificial insemination, or do the surgery again and go back on the clomid and TTC normally or go with artificial insemination.
It did not go as I hoped, my blood pressure was extremlely high (I think it was 185 over 120 or somewhere around there) and I have gained quite a bit of weight and am now up to 290... He gave us a couple of different options, he mainly does not want us to actvily TTC until my health and blood pressure is under control. He said I could have another surgery to remove the endometriosis and then go on LUPRON for 6 months and pray that stops it from coming back, or I could just go on the the LUPRON for 6 months and hope that it removes it and makes it not come back, or go on a strict diet with exercise and watch my blood pressure and hopefully with losing the weight my endometriosis and PCOS will handle it self and hopefully go away and then after I lose the weight and get my blood pressure under control we could start TTC again.
I know being pregnant with high blood pressure could be very risky for me and the baby and I know I need to lose weight to be healthier but it just hurts so bad that I still have to wait to have a baby. I feel like there is something that I am doing to make my health be bad, I feel like somehow its my fault. I feel so discouraged and that my dream is being ripped away because I feel that no matter what there is always going to be some issue that I can't have my child.View Thread
Thanks for your support and help, I will look at those thinks. Right now I have totally cut out all un-needed sugar like candy, soda ETC. and have been eating less and healthier and exercizing and so far its been helping a lot!!!
I have already lost a pound or so, I can fit in to jeans again!!! Where I was stuck wearing sweats for a long time!
I have another appointment 7-25-11 with my primary and hoping my blood pressure is down or we can do something to help.
One other thing, since my diet the pain I was having from my endometriosis has seemed to have gone away or its not as persistant! I will keep you updated.
I am sorry to hear about the troubles you are going through, you are defiantly not alone! DH and I have been TTC for one year with no avail, I have PCOS, ENDOMETRIOSIS and only one ovary. I was on Clomid for 4 cycles but the most recent cycle I had to be off of it because my endometriosis is back and we don't know what we are doing next and I don't get to go to the doctor until 6-30-11. I have been to the point of giving up time and time again with appointment after appointment, negative after negative tests, everybody wanting to know when we are gonna get pregnant and the issues with trying to sched times for the baby dance. Its been very hard to see a lot of my co-workers getting pregnant as well as my friends and they haven't even been trying. A couple of things that have been helping me is everynight I have been cuddling with a baby blanket and imagining my future baby in it a trying to keep possitive thinking, I have also been writing a journal to our future children about the difficulties we are going through but I also write about the good things as well and memories from growing up. To me it helps becuase I'm trying to stay possitive and telling my self it will happen some time its just hard getting there. I have also been meditating as well as reading a book called "Embracing yourself with the heart of a buddha." I hope things get better for you!! Good luckView Thread
DH and I have also been TTC for 1 year, I am now on my third cycle of clomid. I haven't really had any problems in my daily routines ETC. The only thing I have noticed change is I can tell that I've ovulated. After I ovulate I have usually been getting somewhat nausiated, VERY hungry, a little energetic and my boobs have been really tender and sensitive. Other than that I haven't really seen any changes I hope that what I wrote helps a little bit.... Good luck!!!!View Thread
I am on CD 18 and have been using OPK'S and taking my temp. everyday, there has been no line whatsoever yet to show I have my LH surge and my temp. has been really weird, yesterday it was 98.4 and today it was 97.8. I am on my second cycle of clomid but I am wondering if I will be ovulating this month, I only have one ovary I have heard that with one ovary you only ovulate every other month, but I have also heard that if you only have one ovary it wins by default because it is the only one. Can I ovulate every month? Are my chances reduced? I have asked my doctors and haven't gotten any straight anwsers.... I'm starting to get really discouraged with not knowing and worried its never going to happen. I'm starting to feel more and more broken as the days go by...View Thread
Aw thanks!! Yeah I am planning on staying on the Clomid and trying to keep my head high and trying to have positive thinking! Good luck this month!!! I just started my clomid again today so we will see what happens. I will keep my fingers crossed as well!!!View Thread
