hoping one day i will get pregnant

I was told by my GP that I had cysts around my ovaries. I have always had irregular periods although I have never been on any birth control pills.

Anyways my story is not a successful one, yet but with GODS power it will be one day. My fiancé and I have been trying for a baby for 15 months but no success. I'm on the age now so I've decided to go to my GP next week to star t me on some medication.

Hope they will work for me. PRAY for me and I wish every one in the same situation as mine all the best.



I know too well the anxiety, grief, stress all of you are feeling.

It isn't easy, but stay strong and don't give up your dream. LIfe is about dreams without them we have no direction...

I will not tell you how to feel because this is one comment that made me crazy when someone would say "don't feel inadequate, don't worry" How do they know what I am feeling or how it feels to be in this situation! Each one of us is different and I think your feelings are totally normal, but try to focus some energy on all the wonderful things to come!

You are in my prayers!

PS- not to forget our husbands feel the strain as well, sometimes they don't quite understand, but don't forget to show them your love and appreciate for they gift you are creating together.


Keeping the Faith...

I just wanted to say how encouraging it is to know I am not alone. I have derived strength & encouragement from you all. It's so good to hear of your continual attempts to conceive through the grief, anxiety, & same sense of failure that I have felt & continue to feel. One can not express in words how devastating & trying these feelings of inadequacy can be, unless you have been there yourself.

I will be trying this month to conceive hormone free. If we don't get the results we are hoping for, I will undergo a hystersalpingogram (HSG) next month to determine if there is any scarring in my uterus that would be preventing my pregnancies from progressing. The following month I will more than likely continue on with hormone therapy to expedite the conception process in an attempt to give my specialist the opportunity to help me carry a pregnancy to full term.

Keep us in your thoughts & I do all of you. Thank you for all of your wonderful stories of hope & faith.


Waiting for the heart beat

I thought I was hitting my 8 weeks today but doc put me back a week. We have been seeing the doc regularly since last week (every two days). We should be able to find a fetal pole and heartbeat by now, but we have not.........

I go back on Thursday for another sonar and if things don’t look progressive, then I will be diagnosed with a blighted ovum..........

I can not tell you how emotionally drained I am.............I do not have bleeding or pains and have the morning sickness and breast tenderness. hCG levels look okay...........we are lost for words.

We get to this stage with soo much of agony but only to have further agony ahead of us.


IVF x2

I am new to this site, just wanted to share with you my success story and encourage you all to stay strong even when things aren't so bright.

In March 2005 I had my first child, Owen born with IVF. Although it took 3 tries before I got pregnant with 2 embryos transferred each time. Before IVF I had 5 rounds of insemination and 6 miscarriages, I was sure I would never have a child! I was shedding more tears than I can imagine or express over a two-year period of hell!

Now I am happy to say that I am pregnant again by IVF due in March 2008. This time was stressful because we had only 7 embryos left. The first try in May didn't work and I transferred 3 excellent embryos - I was devastated!

On June 12th we found out that 2 embryos didn't survive, so the remaining 2 not perfect but very good embryo's were transferred. This morning ++ and blood test confirmed this afternoon!

I am praying for all of you stay strong it works and the gift of life is so precious! Love to all.
