Keep TryingI have been trying to get pregnant for a little over 2 years now. My period has been irregular since day one. I was put on birth control to try and regulate it. The doctors said everything would be fine and when I would come off of it everything would be back to normal. I stopped taking it in March of 2006. My period is still irregular, my body is not ovulating by itself, and we have been trying for so long. You see I am only 21 years old, so right away everyone thinks that I am young and still have a lot of time to fix my problem. Doctor's dont make a big deal about helping me because they say I "have a lot of time." But they are not me, they do not understand how bad I want this.
My brother passed away in 1997 when he was only 17 years old, he would be 29 right now and if he was still around my parents would be grandparents by now, I would be an aunt. It wouldnt be such a big deal if things were the way they are supposed to be. But that horrible accident makes all that impossible. I dont only want this so badly just for me but also because I believe there are other people in my life that need this in their life.
I believe everyone has a purpose in life and for the longest time I have always thought mine was to be a loving wife and a good mother, but I feel like I cannot do one without the other.
I know a lot of people that are pregnant or already have kids that cant even take care of themselves. They have sex with anyone, do not care about their bodies and then pop kids out left and right. I am so disgusted with the way things work that I sometimes do not even want to try anymore.
Please keep us in your prayers as I will do the same for all of you.
First IUIMy Husband and I have been TTC for nearly 2 years, after 6 failed clomid attempts (no ovulation) we have opted for IUI with injectables. Currently i am down regulating and due to go to the hospital for a baseline scan on 15th May 2008. If all is well, i will start my daily injections and will hopefully have the IUI 12 - 14 days later. Please pray for me, i dont know how much more of this i can take!
How to become pregnantKIM is glowing with health and happiness. She is about to give birth to her first child after 10 years of trying to conceive, two miscarriages, hormone injections and the heartache of failure.
Earlier last year, she and her husband were preparing to spend more than £20,000 on private IVF (in vitro fertilisation) treatment to help them realise their dream.
But in the end, Kim, 32, conceived naturally - she believes because of this simple technique.
"I came off the pill at 21 and was under the care of the hospital.
"They don't put you on the list for IVF until they've tried everything else.
"After seven years, they told me they wouldn't treat me because they found out my husband had a son from his first marriage," she explained.
After doing some research on the internet, Kim decided to try private IVF treatment with a renowned infertility expert.
Meanwhile, Kim's boss had persuaded her to go and try this technique.
"My husband poo-pooed it, but I went through the technique. I was put through all different thought situations in the session" she recalled.
In March Kim underwent an internal procedure called a hystoscopy as part of the preparation for starting IVF.
She was also due to have a scan, but her period was late and she was advised to carry out a pregnancy test.
"It was April Fool's Day and I was covered from head to toe in fake tan. When it came up positive, I was crying, with fake bake streaks down my face.
"I rang my husband, who didn't believe me.
"My mum got me a second test and it said positive."
The next day, an excited Kim travelled to London from her home in Poole.
"I was expecting to be a maximum of two weeks pregnant, but they told me I was six weeks.
"I had become pregnant on February 18, which was when I had visualised it with Reef.
"It's all weird. If I'd had the hystoscopy one day before or one day after, I wouldn't be pregnant..."
Wishing you all...I checked in to see how everyone was doing...if there was any new & exciting news from anyone!? I wish you all health, happiness, strength & success along your journey. Don't give up, keep going & keep hoping...there is always that to hold onto. And most of all, keep an open dialog with your partner/spouse & your physician.
Now Get Busy!!
