I just want to be a mom...
Please know that my prayers are with all the women who are having trouble having a child. You are not alone.. there are so many of us out there.
My story is this... I'm 32 years old and I've been with my bf for 4 years. He has an 11 year old who i love dearly, but I would love to have a child of our own. We got pregnant last year, but it was a bad egg and I miscarried. It was heart breaking. I knew something was wrong with me but my doctor insisted I was fine.
After changing doctors, I was diagnosed with PCOS. Finally!!... someone knew something was wrong. I am currently on Clomid and will get my first injection tomorrow. I am keeping my fingers crossed and praying that by some miracle we get pregnant.
I just want to be a mom.
Need a Miracle Just #1I want to wish everyone luck who posted on here... May god bless us all with at least one child of our own. So we can all experience the wonderful miracle of becoming a mother for at least just one time.
I am 24yrs old soon to be 25. My husband is 26 going on 27. We have been going to a fertility doctor. His sperm count came back normal. I found out I was the problem. The doctor said I was not ovulating. He started me off with 50mg Clomid on days 5-9 cycle. last month 1/2008. I got my blood work done and it came back that I had not ovulated. The next thing I know I got my period. You can imagine how that felt.
I was depressed and crying. My husband by my side was comforting me saying it's okay we can try again. I managed to get over that depressed emotion and I am now on round 2 of clomid but now it was doubled to 100mg. I just went today to the doctor to get my blood work done. I am hoping and praying that I did ovulate this time. I will be getting my results within days. I am so nervous to find out if it worked or not. I really don't want to feel the negative responses again.
I feel I cannot deal with any more pain and sadness anymore. I look at myself in the mirror and say to myself I am useless as a woman because I cannot give my wonderful husband a family.
Please pray for me that I will pray for you. I will let you know my results..... God Bless You All!
dear LisaDear Lisa,
I feel for you, & I will keep praying for you that you are successful.
If you can't conceive, would you consider adopting a child out of the system? So many unfortunate children need homes, I;'ve already become a foster parent I;m just waiting for the paper work.
I pray that the good LORD will bless you & your hubby one way or another. May the LORD bless you & keep you in your time of sorrow.
Keep Praying Mindi
I know exactly how you feel. I will soon be 40 years old this July & my husband & I have been trying for 8 years. My husband has had a visectomy reversal but it didn't work. I have done 3 IUI with donor sperm, all unsuccessful.
My husaband said that I could do it once more & that was it! I am praying that it works this time. I know how hard & sad it is. I cried an awful lot. But I know that our good LORD has a reason for making us wait.
Just keep on praying & don't forget that JESUS loves you & that's why he died on the cross for you.
The LORD has kept me from doing anything stupid. I will pray for you as well as everyone.
But you & I are very similar situations.
trying for #2My husband & I conceived easily with our first child when I was 40 years old and we have a healthy, beautiful, spirited son. We have been trying for the past year and half to have baby #2 without much luck. We had a miscarriage October of 2006 and we have not been pregnant since.
I did 6 unsuccessful cycles of chlomid and then off to the RE. He said due to my age, we should skip IUI and go straight to IVF. I did a full round of shots with IVF to only have one egg at the end of the expensive and painful shots. No retrieval that month, so we did IUI resulting with no pregnancy. Then the next month my FSH was too high to do anything. Very discouraging.
Then last month, FSH was ok and we go for another round of IVF shots. 4 shots a night in the belly. Painful. The ultrasound shows 6 eggs...way better than last time. We were encouraged. The next ultrasound 4 days later showed on 3 follicles had grown....the last ultrasound show only one follicle had grown (the other follicles had regressed and basically disappeared!) so no IVF again for us.
We did IUI on thursday and now my fingers are crossed as this may be our final try to have another baby. I am 44 and really may be at the end of baby years. It is so sad and so discouraging. I do not want my son to grow up an only child....
My husband and I met very late in life (in baby years that is). Never thought this would be a problem that we would encounter.
