Hello everyone! Here's a "quick" recap of where I've been and how far I've come:
We've been TTC since April 2007.
I was diagnosed with stage IV endometriosis in Feb 2008 after months of unexplained pain and illness. After my first laparoscopy, I started Lupron therapy and continued for 4 months. I started experiencing some unpleasant side effects (neurological) and decided to call it quits.
It didn't seem to help anyway, because by Dec of 2008 I was right back where I started and had another endometrioma. We tried a few cycles of femara, but, had to have another Lap in March of 2009. My tubes were found to be very inflammed, among all my other problems, so, we were advised to go ahead and try IVF.
I had a hysteroscopy in April 2009 to remove some polyps and in Apr/May we had our first round of IVF...which ended in a chemical pregnancy.
We decided to try again in July and on August 12th had another BFP followed by a blessed rising Beta 2 days later. I'm now 5 weeks pregnant waiting on an ultrasound with my RE on Sept. 4th. Just saying some prayers that this is the miracle we've been waiting for!
