I tried for five years to get pregnant with my second son. we had to take fertility medicine with my first son, so I thought we would take it again and it would happen right away. After the first couple of years of trying without success the Dr. sent my husband in to get some tests done. When we got the results were devistated. I was called into see my Dr. (this was on Jan. 11) and he told me the only way were going to have another baby was through surgery which health insurance didn't cover.

So after years of trying, alot of money later, and so much heartbreak I can't explain we decided that we would stop trying. So on Jan. 21 I called my Dr. and told him I was ready to go back on the pill. He told me to do a home pregnancy test just to make sure, even though we both knew the results would be negative. I left for lunch that day to go pick up my pills and a pregnancy test. I went into the Target bathroom took the test, threw it in my purse without looking at it and went to get lunch.

I was in the drive through and when I reached in my purse to get my money out the test fell into my lap. I looked at it and said "NO WAY" I asked the lady at the drive throught to look to make sure and she said "yep". I then took it to my husband and he said "Yep". All the while I was in complete denial. I called my Dr. hysterical. He had me come in and he said "YEP". I still couldn't believe it. Even after the first three ultrasounds all I said was "no this is isn't right. You guys are lying to me."

I was told for so long that I wouldn't have another baby that when it happened I just couldn't believe it. My second baby boy will be a year old next month. So I guess I finally believe it. I hope that cheers someone up. Never give up on any of your dreams. They Do come true when the time is right for you!


still trying

i wrote a few weeks ago (trying 4 three years) just wanted to write an update on my doctors visit. im still not pregnant but the doctor has set me up for a few test so far ive had an hysterosonography which checks to see if you have any polyps in the uterus. it came back negative that was a relife the doctor said my ovaries look very good for ivf and as long as the hysterosalpingogram came back good (a procedure to check if the tubes are open) there should be no problem getting me pregnant by the end of this year so i am excited and looking foward to what is to come. i will keep in touch and good luck to everyone.


Hoping for a Miracle

At the age of 21 I was finishing up my last year of University and looking forward to the real world, finding the man of my dreams and eventually have children.
My periods had become quite irregular after I turned 18. There were times when I wouldn't get it for 8 months to a year and finally it just stopped. My second visit to the doctor had required me to take a blood test to test my hormone levels. The result was something that would shatter a part of my life forever.

The doctor told me I had gone through post menopause and that I wouldn't be able to have children. I was to continue taking birth control in order to keep my uterus shedding. The pain just ripped through my heart. After the doctor told me what was wrong she just left me all alone in the room while tears streamed uncontrollably down my face. I locked myself up for hours in my room crying. My parents didn't understand how this could be possible. I didn't understand.

Afterwards I started coping by saying I didn't want kids and believe that I was happy and fine with everything.

Now I am getting married in a year and everyone around me has kids or is pregnant. Each time a friend tells me they're pregnant I am so very happy for them but also very sad. My fiance accepts the fact that I can't have kids and says he's perfectly fine with not having kids. I think he just says that for my sake. My parents want me to start going to the doctor to try to see what we can do.

Deep down inside I still have a glimmer of hope left because there were times when I did get my period after I supposedly had gone through post menopause. It's been tearing me up inside because friends who do know try to comfort me but they really don't know how I feel. It really hurts so much to know that I may not be able to have a child with my future husband. I will continue to pray day after day that we will get our little miracle or two when the time comes.

I know this story is long but I do feel better sharing it with all of you.



Could I be

I'm 20 yrs old and I have been living with my boyfriend for almost 6 months now. We have been dating since I was 16 on and off and I know he is the "ONE" . For the past week I have been feeling off. I have been getting headaches weird abdominal pain and I feel very dizzy, even when I'm sitting. I'm turned off food very easily and feel like I'm going to through up. This is very unlikely for me because I eat anything and all the time. I get irritated very easily and snap. I've almost cried in the weirdest sitiuations and had to either leave the room or stop watching the show to prevent my self from crying.

I think I am pregnant. And I get these hot flashes only at night. I'm not suppossed to get my period for 2 more weeks but I can't handle this stress of not knowing. I dont want to mention this to anyone untill I'm sure because my friends get a little insane with pregnacy scares. I know I will keep it and be very happy.

I just finished college last June and Am in a steady job so I know I could afford to handle the child. I think that if I'm not pregnant I will be upset. I just needed to share this info and get it off my chest. I also love reading all the stories. It's helping me to figure out what I'm going through.




I have currently gone through 5 months of clomid & this past month I have gad my first IUI ; the doc was very positive but the 26th will be 2 weeks & i am having no signs what so ever ; waiting & not knowing is the hardest thing i ever gone through, except for the fact of not getting pregnant & not having an explanation of why it is not happening ; the doc keeps telling me that he is very positive ; i just don't understand why it is not happening
