I joined here a little while ago but have been absent for a while…am hoping to come back on and get and give some support
Thought a little getting to know you/me might catch us up a bit
[B]SITUATION: Married for 11.5 years, me 30 and DH 31.[/B]
[B]TTC SITUATION: Trying for baby #1 now for 8 years, 11 months (but who’s counting lol) Have tried 4 x IVF, and countless IUI and injectibles and Clomid etc. I have PCOS (a textbook case!) and DH has sperm issues. Have no friends left without children and have become quite a bitter person sadly. Am emotionally/mentally spent but not quite ready to call it quits. [/B]
[B]WHAT’S NEXT: Well holiday in 2 weeks for 2 weeks (a cruise! yay!) and then trying to lose 30 kg before giving IVF 1 more try - hopeful but scared out of my brain.[/B]
Look forward to talking more with everyone soon and hearing everyone’s stories.[/quote]
Sounds like you have been through a lot! My DH and I have been TTC for almost 8 years but have just recently started seeing a RE so we’re still waiting on treatments, etc. until we can find out some more of what’s going on. So sorry you’ve had such a hard time TTC!!! It’s definately not a fun process. I know what it’s like to feel bitter - I’ve been there many times. People on here are probably sick of me saying this over and over again but it’s something that has really helped me cope better in the last little while when we’ve received disappointing news - but my faith in Heavenly Father has gotten me through things lately and that has helped me stay more positive and not as bitter. I still have a ways to go but I’m really just trying to focus on the fact that Heavenly Father knows who we are - that He has a plan for us and that He won’t give us anything that we can’t handle. We can’t see what He sees - and therefore it’s hard for us to see that what we’re going through is really for our good and will help us become the person that He wants us to be. I don’t know if you’re religious or not, but that’s what has helped me get through the hard times lately.
Good luck with everything. Enjoy your cruise and good luck with the weight loss!!!
