I have now been diagnosed with endo (which I have had at least 10 years) and a new dignosis of PCOS and adenomyosis so I felt backed into a corner on the lupron.
Surgery, six months on lupron, and then he keeps trying to put me back on BCPs but I take them for two weeks and then cant' stand them and go back. He told me after the surgery/lupron was my best chance to conceive. That was three years ago. Still hasn't happened. Well, it did the one time, but obviously that didn't work. So still waiting on my body to cooperate. That's the thing that keeps me from doing anything more, we've talked about iui or ivf, but the fact is that with just drugs I do eventually get pregnant (like once every few years) but I don't make it past the first tri. So what would be the point of spending all that money on treatment if I'm just going to loose it kwim? I mean yes statistically speaking it should work faster because I have more chances of it working to get me pregnant and of course statistically that means it I have a greater chance of one sticking but still. Anyway, rambling, but yes. That's where we're at.

Re: Blessed with children, Struggling for more Week of May 7th

Hi Ladies,

I briefly was coming to this support thread earlier in the year. I was hoping you wouldn't mind me joining you again.

Long story short I am pretty sure I have PCOS. I will be shocked if not. I have a lot signs and symptoms. I have gotten pregnant twice in our "year" of trying and lost both pregnancies. Most recently ID twins at 7 weeks (which was last week). Now we are at over a year of trying and even though I have been able to get pregnant through not having a menstrual cycle and sporadic ovulation a specialist finally wants to see me.

I have my appointment with the reproductive specialist on June 7th so for now I am on a month break trying to heal. It is so hard and I am so heartbroken. I am also just so angry. I was begging for help, I kept going to doctors and begging for someone to do something before I lost another. They kept telling me they won't do anything until I have another loss. I kept telling them why I thought PCOS. They even found elevated testosterone, elevated cholesterol and now high blood pressure. They told me it wasn't high enough to be pcos and I am now finding out there is no set level that says that esp. with all my other symptoms. Lately I feel like my health is going down hill.

I feel horrible and I am very frustrated.

Screen Name: Ms.Kaun (Real Name): Eryn
Age: 27
Current Children and age: 3 Living (ages 9, 8 and 6) 4 angels.
Diagnosis: None yet, suspected PCOS. Appointment with a reproductive specialist coming up.
Treatment and meds: Metformin
Next Appointment: June 7th
Cycles TTC another: 13 but I only ovulated for 3 cycles the entire time resulting in 2 early pregnancy losses.

Sorry I've been so MIA lately, I have been reading but haven't been up to posting much,
Slimy, I really respect your strength in going through everything. You are amazing.
Jaqualine, I'm spelling that wrong I'm sorry. I am really excited for your IVF. Since you have that track record of things working first time the random gods might be in your favor.
JCP, I'm so sorry about your MIL.
Eryn, I'm sorry you have to be here instead of in December DDC I think about you most days. I hope you get the answers you need. Sometimes you have to fight to get a door to listen to you, which is incomprehensible to me. This group has been a good luck charm for me so. Hope it is for you too.
Afm, I went to my first official OB appointment today. DH even came too. The babies are both still alive and kicking (literally), I didn't know they even moved around this early but I could see them. Their heartbeats are good 140 and 150 and I could even hear them. Twin A is still measuring smaller at 8 weeks 4 days but twin B is right on track or 9 weeks where it should be. From now on I will be tracked by the perinatologist, I hope I like him. I am starting to feel like I might actually get to hold babies in December which is really scary. I'm getting attached. I will feel better at 13 weeks when I get the results of the CVS back. I'm still sicker than a dog but I did gain back 2 of the 11 lbs I lost, zofran is a miracle drug.

Alanna, so glad your babies are well. I know you were pretty worried about them.

Eryn, I am so sorry to hear that about your babies. I had read your posts about the whole situation and was really hoping that a miracle would be in store for you. I am sorry that you are hearbroken and hope that I can offer a teeny tiny bit of comfort for you. I am glad that you have come back to this thread...a lot of us here have been at it for years and have serious struggles so that will be some extra support for you from others that have been there. I hope you get some solid answers and a diagnosis that will prevent this from happening again. I am praying for you. I can tell you are a lovely person and I think just the kind of person that will be an awesome mama. I hope your bfp comes to you soon and you are able to hold a little baby in your arms.

Re: Blessed with children, Struggling for more Week of May 7th

Thank you for being so kind girls. I am really freaked out about getting pregnant again. Luckily for me when I do see ovulation (the last time was a very lucky fluke... I wasn't watching) I usually get lucky with it. I worry about the actual pregnancy sticking. It is like a cruel teasing joke. Hey! Heres a baby... and bam, its gone. I feel kind of bad asking to join when in fact I have gotten pg when I ovulate... I don't want to ruffle any feathers so I hope it is ok. If it isn't just let me know!

Re: Blessed with children, Struggling for more Week of May 7th

Ms.Kaun - I am sorry for your losses! I hope the RE can help you get to the bottom of all of this. Welcome!

psylion - Congratulations! I hope they are both nice and sticky for you!

AFM - I started CD 1 today. I don't get it! I was only on the nuvaring for a week... not even that since I put it in at about 10 pm and I took it out at 7 am (Monday and monday). So I wasn't expecting a bleed from it! Especially after I started estrogen! So I have a call in to the clinic to make sure they still want to see me on Wednesday. I am not building a lining right now so maybe they will want to wait a few days. Silly body!

Okay I feel bad even asking this but is anyone else extremely optimistic about all of this? My inlaws want us to go to Hawaii in November of 2013 and so I have been talking about DS a bit about this. Obviously we will fly and we will have a few days on the west coast before going over so whenever DS says he wants to take an airplane somewhere I tell him about this anticipated trip. DS also wants a baby sister so I find myself saying "When Astrid (what we are going to name the next girl) gets here we will do ___" It is almost like we were going to go and get a gallon of milk. I find myself saying it matter of factly. Please tell me I am not the only one that does this. I know I am probably setting myself up for failure by being like this.

Re: Blessed with children, Struggling for more Week of May 7th

TMI warning!!

I had to share this because if other women may have this issue I think you should know about it.

I am on CD 1 and I didn't think much about it. After all I was only on the nuvaring for a week and when I was on it for 3 weeks my lining was only 3.8 or something. So I thought a light period at best! Well last week my doctor put me on baby aspirin (low dose aspirin). I use mama cloth and since I have been on the nuvaring, the 3 pads I have and a handful of day pads (2 layers of flannel) have been all I needed. I mean my periods are non existent nearly but I figured that was to be expected. So imagine my surprise when I just went to the bathroom and in a few hours I had soaked through my mama cloth!! I clean up and the only thing I can think of is my starting of the low dose aspirin. So I go to dr. Google and sure enough, it does thin the blood! I guess for me it REALLY thins the blood! I wish they would have told me that though! I need to get my port flushed soon and I am not looking forward to this! They give me heparin when I get that flushed! Yikes!!!!

Oh gosh, Jennifer. I had heard it was a blood thinner but didn't think of it that way.

Eryn,you need support and that is what we are here for. In fact, in some ways, you need more support because of losing the babies.....I haven't had a miscarriage and I imagine that would be even harder for me than the fact that I don't get pregnant at all. I have never been pregnant outside of the doctor's office.

Jacqueline - I have never been pregnant outside a doctor's office either.

I think having been through the child loss, near stillborn and a miscarriage, I really can't imagine repeated miscarriage. I mean, when I get pregnant I feel the odds are in my favor I will stay that way so I celebrate and have a bit of the nieve-ness that fertile people have. However when your dealing with repeated miscarriage you have to wait till you get past X point before you feel safe. I guess I had that a bit with my son, I mean I did have an ultrasound at 30 weeks just so I could be told "You will bring your child home", but I wasn't tense about it from 24 weeks (when I had the triplets) to 30 weeks. I was just nervous about it for a few days around 24 weeks.

I guess we are all just in painful boats.

I heard back from my RE. I am still good to go with current schedule. I guess they were expecting me to bleed from the nuvaring.
