Update On Me…

Took down this post because sponsor was unable to pay me for it. So, I will make this post about how I am doing :) So the comments left below, were for that post, LOL, not this one :)

I am still desperately trying for baby #3. It is such a long, hard road, OMG. I never would have thought that ttc our third child would take almost three YEARS and counting…

It is very difficult hearing others announce they are pregnant, though I am extremely happy for them, I do wish it was ME announcing my pregnancy. Then I hear of those who have lost babies and am so deeply and truly sad and sorry for them :( No matter how old a BABY is, whether you JUST found out you were pregnant and miscarried, to losing your baby at 16 or more weeks, it is all VERY sad and unfair. So hugs to everyone who has suffered this sort of loss or any loss. It is so hard to deal with, I know all too well.

I have had 5 IUI’s and am about to do my 6th IUI (this is where they transfer your partners sperm into your uterus). They spin it and wash it and then put it into your cervix via a very small catheter, neat huh? It does not hurt really and the process is fairly quick. So, I have that to look forward to on Friday.

The reason it is taking me sooooo long to conceive, is because, when I was pregnant with my daughter, I lost my left fallopian tube. I am ovulating on the left side most months, and that explains why I am not getting pregnant, UGH. Month after month, being monitored (having an ultrasound to see which side I am ovulating from), fertility drugs and shots, I am worn out!

BUT…

Yesterday I went in for my Follicle Scan (to see which side I am ovulating from this month, sigh..) and I am ovulating from the side with the tube!!!!! FINALLY!! So, this month I have a CHANCE! I am soo excited, because every month I go in to see which side I am ovulating from I get the same dang news, that I am not ovulating on the side with my tube, but I am this month :) Oh I was and am beyond excited!!

Soooooo..

On Wednesday I get to give myself a Trigger shot, which is to make me ovulate 36 hours later so I will be giving myself a shot tomorrow night! Yikes, never have done it before, but the things one will do to have a baby…

So, that is what I have been up to, with my fertility issues and such. It felt good typing this as I never never really talk about myself or my fertility problems. It can really break a person, but this month I have HOPE!

You wanna know what is also kind of cool/weird???

In the last year, I have talked to FOUR different psychics, online, and each one has told me that I will conceive in March…….

“So, how are YOU doing????”

  6. Wow, that’s pretty shocking and very sad! I wonder how much of this statistic stems from lack of child support payments

    I am relating so well to reading your baby posts. My 30 year old daughter (only child) has been married over 4 years and is finally pregnant with her first and my first grandchild. I am excited most definitely…we even call her by her name, Charlotte, as though she were already here buttttt..I am scared…very scared that something may happen. She is 5 months pregnant now and the longer she goes the better I feel but she had so much trouble getting pregnant that …well…call me nuts but what scares me is things are going too well with the pregnancy. I pray everyday for this unborn child and I will pray for you. I know how hard it is to WANT a child..my ONLY child is only for a reason that was not my choice ;) Bless you hon…

  16. I completely understand your pain. I lost a baby at 34 weeks and after that seeing people get pregnant/being pregnant killed me inside. It was a long hard road. I wish you the best of luck!

  17. I was blessed with three beautiful kids , 2 girls and a boy. During the end of my pregnancy with my third, my son, I knew something was very wrong but my docs just kept saying it was normal. I started swelling about 6 weeks before delivery and when I say swelling I’m talking a little in my hands and feet. I normally weigh about 100 lbs pre-pregnancy yet I had the legs of a 500 lb person, I had cankles! I was so sore and tired. Finally when the migraine started I ignored my doctor and went to the emergency room and they induced me. After I had my son I went into cardiac arrest and almost died. I woke up in intensive care after being medivaced to the university hospital and was told I was in full blown heart failure. Luckily with medication it is being controlled but I will never be 100% and I can never have another child, it will kill me next time. I had my kids before my friends and now they are starting to have theirs and I can’t help but be jealous and sad because my husband and I weren’t ready to be done, we wanted to have at least one more. I hope and pray that you will conceive and at least and end will come to your pain. Good luck and god bless!

    • I am so glad that YOU listened to your body. We always know, right? You should read my story titled “the day my daughter was almost taken from me” that was ME listening to my body, even when the doctors did not listen! So glad that your baby is okay but I am SO sorry that you are unable to have any more children. Huge hugs to you sweet mama <3

  18. It is so heartbreaking to hear stories of people who want so badly to conceive while there are others who abuse or discard their children like yesterdays garbage. It seems so unfair people who do not want kids seem to be the ones who end up with a handful of them. I wish you the best in your treatment & am keeping my fingers crossed for you!
    Take care,

  19. My friend and her husband had 1 child and tried for 8 years to have another but couldn’t and they found it was God’s will for them to adopt. They saved 2 kids from an awful situation starting out as foster parents, then adopted them 2 years later. If they would have conceived they never would have started fostering kids. I’m not saying you should adopt or stop trying (not saying that AT ALL) just that everything has it’s season and a time..be patient and you will receive your blessing.

  21. I wish you best of luck. It will happen…..

  22. I hope you have success in conceiving, it must be heartbreaking to try over and over again. Good luck!
