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

It's been a while since I've participated! Not sure why-lazy much? Anyway, just a brief background: I'm 30 and we've been trying to have a baby for 3 1/2 years now. I have stage IV endometriosis that was diagnosed in 2/2008. I've had 2 IVF procedures. Both were successful-the first in May 2009 resulted in a chemical pregnancy. The 2nd was in July/August 2009. That pregnancy ended at 18 weeks with the birth of our son...they say due to premature rupture of membranes. We were devastated and heartbroken, left to pick up the pieces and move on with our lives without the child we worked and prayed so hard for.

We've been trying since March 2010 to have our FET done. After two failed attempts, we were finally able to have it done on November 16th and both of our frozen embryo's were transferred! We are currently in the "two week" wait. Meanwhile, we just honored our son's birthday yesterday, November 20th. It's been a roller coaster of a fall!!!!

Happy ICLW, this is the first time I have done it in ages.

I hope this 2ww ends in a BFP and remains so for 9 months.
