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!

Last shotless night for a while...

So, Lu.pron shots start tomorrow! As do the oral antibiotics. I have been reassured by yet ANOTHER MD that the problems with my incisions are purely superficial (ie, only skin deep), so, here we go. And, I figured if after the antibiotics and before my baseline apt, if things aren't better or worse, we still have the opportunity to stop.

So, here's to enjoying one last night before I'm constantly watching the clock and planning the evening around my injections. It's all hopefully going to be worth it though!!! And, besides, having to anticipate the shots each night helps to keep the mind busy, unlike the wait after the transfer.

Here's to hoping and praying for a successful IVF cycle#2!!!!!!! Is it August 10th yet?!?!?!

I'm really hoping and praying that everything works out for you.

So sorry you've had to ride this roller coaster - and my hope is that you can keep your head held high during the trials and tribulations.

Pray. Believe. And try to find peace.

I just came across your blog and I'm so happy that I did. I got diagnosed with endometriosis last november and have been trying to conceive for 2 years. My husband and I just started getting in deeper to the endometriosis/infertility treatment. You can see my blog at http://gettingpregnantwithendometriosis.blogspot.com. I just started Lupron and I can't say it's been fun. I look forward to reading your posts.

Much luck to you,

Jennifer

Yes, it does suck that we have to deal with it, but so nice to know that we're not alone. Thanks for the Ginger Chew recommendation. Do they taste gross?

Unfortunately I can't exercise yet because I had a septoplasty 3 weeks ago & haven't been cleared by my surgeon yet. I see him on Friday, so hopefully he will give me the go ahead because I am dying to exercise.

Yes, I'm on the add-back therapy as well. What are your thoughts on that? Oh I've definitely been pretty mean & grumpy with my husband. I feel so bad for him! Luckily he's been a trooper about it, but I think his patience is wearing thin. I can't say that I blame him.

Thanks for your support! I really appreciate it. How are you feeling?
