I am 35 years old, living with stage IV Endometriosis, possibly adenomyosis and struggled with infertility for almost 4 years. I also struggled with PPD and now struggle with PMDD. I am a mother to a son that was born at 18 weeks and too precious for this earth; and now a mother to a son born in August 2011. By journaling here, I hope to benefit both for myself and for others that are dealing with this disease and fertility struggles. Thanks for visiting!

ICLW again?

Welcome ICLWers! Just a quick snippet of my blog:

I'm 28 (29 soon-bday in a few weeks!) and I have stage IV endometriosis. It was an interesting battle to get diagnosed, but, I had my first laparoscopy in Feb 2008. After a course of Lu.pron for treatment, I was back to square 1 by Dec of the same year.

I had my 2nd lap for my endo in Mar 2009, and a hysteroscopy in Apr 2009 to remove polyps. Now it's a race against time as I have a recurrent endometrioma-it showed up 6weeks post op, despite its predecessor being excised.

We've been TTC since Apr 2007. We started the IVF process at the end of April 2009. Today I am 7dp3dt-we had 2 adorable embies placed last Thursday. Our beta is on May 26-next Tuesday. So, here we wait, no so patiently.

Sorry about typos-no spell check on the crackberry! ;)

Your beta is on Tuesday! That's so close! I'm sure it feels like forever to you, though :). Are you tempted to POAS earlier?

Just swinging by with ICLW. Thank you for posting so much detail about your IVF. We are getting ready to start our first IVF (and hopefully only??!!). I am reading all such blogs as your's with a passion trying to understand all that is getting ready to happen. GOOD LUCK to you!

Just wanted you to know that all of us up here in Illinois have been following your journey and pray for your success. I'll be saying extra prayers over the weekend. Enjoy your time with our girls. They were a lot of fun while they were here.

I hope you get great news on Tuesday. I also recently completed IVF#1 (turned into FET#1 through a study cycle at my clinic). We had one medium quality embie that made it which we transferred last Thursday. I am 7dp5dt and my beta is Saturday.

Good Luck!!
