Hanging In There
I am 41, soon to be 42, my husband is 36, and we have been trying to get pregnant for a year now. My HCG was fine, but they found some growths in my uterus, which were surgically removed. We just had our first IUI, which was unsuccessful. It was very discouraging to wake up with my period the day I was supposed to go for my PG test.
Now we have to rest a month and try again. We are praying that the IUI works this time. Although I am older, my doctor says I have the ovaries and uterus of a woman 10 years younger. I have a daughter who is 21 (she thinks it's weird, but would like a sister). So even though it seems unconventional, we are praying and hoping to have a baby soon. Does anyone have a similar story or any advice you would like to share?
I'm scared but full of hopeI've been married for 8 years never take any contraceptive but never got pregnant, went to a doctor who told me I wont be able to, totally lost hope. But some time ago God put in my way an angel, her name is Karen Ritch, from Columbia hospital in New York, she gave me hope again, her team is the youngest ever. But they know exactly what they are doing.
I got an iui on Wednesday (2 days ago). And I'm almost crazy to know if it worked or not, going though a very depressing time. I think I feel it workedÖ I hope so. I will love to know what exactly you feel the very first days of pregnancy. I've read every article on the internet and I'm having every single symptoms as I read...jajaja. But really will love to know what to see to know if I'm pregnant or not.
Believe GodHi friends, I got married in 2004 Jan. till now we don't have children. In the first year I got pregnant. But at that time we decided to remove my pregnancy. After that we're facing problems. We've been trying for 2 1/2 years. For 2 years I have taken injections. But no result. Now we decided to go for IUI. Everything should be blessings of GOD only, so friends keep hope.
Just wanna be a MomMy husband and I have been married for six years this December '07. We have been trying to have a baby for almost 4 1/2 years. It feels like it's been an eternity! I know that others out there experience infertility a lot longer than I have been trying...but it is still so hard for my both my husband and myself. We love children, in fact my husband is a youth minister... We are surrounded by babies and children...day in a day out.. it is so hard to try month after month and nothing... My husband is going to be 33 and I am 29, going on 30 in a couple months. My specialist put me on 50mg Clomid last month. This month was a good month...so I hoped it worked!
I know that God is in control... I have always known that. But sometimes, this whole thing is plain overwhelming! God bless!!
The two week waitWell on 10/16 and 17 I had my first iui. And now I am in the two week waiting period, and Iím scared, cause I don't know what to expect. My iui went pretty well we had a good sperm count the first day, but the second iui we had half of that from the previous day. But our RE says we have a pretty good chance. But Iím worried, after trying for 3yrs with no results; I have in my mind it may not work. My husband has a good attitude about it, he feels that it'll work. Anyways ladies just pray for me! If the iui don't work I will start ivf in November
