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!

Dear Embies-

We love you and pray for you daily. We hope you are doing well and settling in nicely. I promise I will take good care of you and be the best mother I can. I just know W will make an amazing father. We are ready to take this next step into parenthood, and, hope that you are ready too! More letters to come as we hopefully journey these next 9 months together.

Love,
Me

Thinking a lot about those embies in there today. I've been so ill the past two nights. Tonight I barely wanted to eat. Gotta love the PIO shots and their effects, eh? I so very badly want them to be more than that. I was never sick last time. I'm hoping that the lovely folks I work with didn't bring me their stomach bugs since they decided it best to come to work than stay home. SERIOUSLY PEOPLE!

And, we wait some more. 6 more days...today we are 5dp3dt...

Hello fellow endo sufferer. Sending good wishes for a great beta result! I remember during our 1st IVF what an amazing feeling it was to know those embryos were on board. Hang in there during the wait...just a few more days.
