A long road well worth the JourneyMy wife and I decided to hold off from getting pregnant for the first 4 years of our marrige. After those 4 years, we tried so desperately to conceive without any success.
With worry and frustration, we decided to see a local gynecologist. We did a few tests, but results showed that both my wife and I were "A-OK". After multiple treatments of clomid, tests, and lifestyle changes, 2 years later, we saw no progress.
We took some time off to relax and just get away from the stress of trying to conceive. Our original gynecologist left to a different clinic, so we moved our records and started seeing gynecologist #2.
We again began clomid and went through a second round of testing with the new clinic. We were told again that there was no reason why we shouldn't be able to conceive. A year later, with still no luck, our gynecologist suggested that instead of going through IUI (mainly due to my wife's age), we seriously consider IVF. We did our research and decided on St. Luke's Medical hospital in Quezon, City Philippines (Mostly because of the price and we had family in the area).
2 months of prayers (I made it a point to renew my faith and go to church and attend mass every Sunday), tests, injections, medications,doctor appontments and finally an embro transfer, we were going to have a baby! WE WERE SOOOOO HAPPY!!!
We returned back to Guam and saw our gynecologist. Everyone were so happy for us!!!! Then, after several lab exams, we found out that the birth was Ectopic. My wife took 2 shots to terminate the preganancy, but the termination was a little late (since we insisted on getting second opinions), that she had complications and lost almost 2 pints of blood due to internal bleeding. It was one of the scariest moments in my life watching my loving wife having to endure so much pain. She remained in the hospital for 5 days.
Saddened by our loss, but happy for my wifes health we did our best to cope.
Half a year later, my wife and I were able to conceive naturally. I can't even put into words how SHOCKED we were. We were extremely happy, but didn't tell anyone until 4 months later because we were still extremely worried since the first pregnancy was ectopic,
On July 20, 2009, my wife gave birth to Matthew "Sora". It was truly a time for celebration. After years of waiting, he was finally here with us.
Each day I thank God for the blessing he has given to us. Although there may be many sceptics out there, I go to church every Sunday to give my thanks. For me and my family, this wouldn't have been possible without the blessing from the Lord above.
Don't give up, have faith in the Lord and may your love provide the strength to endure.
keep going oni felt the sadness in every stories i read here. it feels that i am not alone in this journey. we've been married for a year now and we're trying to get pregnant since then. i have pcos too and im undergoing some treatments now. im also a foreign in this country, US, Im h4 visa holder meaning i am not allowed to work, so basically i have no life here, very boring and depressing life. how i wish i have a baby to take care too, in that way i may not feel this boredome and worthless. i cant help but to cry and wondering why is this happening to me. Though this is happening, i still trust GOD. This suffering may take too long, but i stiil trust and love HIM. I know someday, somehow God will answered my prayers. For now, i have to keep going on with my life and live with HIM.
Losing my mindI understand how you feel Alicia. My husband and I have been trying for over three years now. What I find most frustrating is that because of our infertility, we've 'inspired' other couples to try sooner and almost all got pregnant right away, one had a miscarriage, but all the others have been doing fine.
I have a difficult time talking to them about their exciting times in their life. I maintain my friendships with them, but I don't want them to take pity on me. I'm happy for them, but sometimes, it's just really hard to talk about it ALL the time! Someone at my work got pregnant by mistake...and she's not even happy about it. She's ready to give birth in a month.
But it's important to stay positive and remember that we are only young once. So my husband and I took a big long trip to Europe, no we aren't pregnant, but at least we got to see another part of the world and it was like we were dating again, we had so much fun. And we made sure we didn't talk about our fertility problems. We will be trying IVF in the fall.
Pls pray for meI got married 3 years back still i am childless. i used so many mecdicines and me and my husband gone through many tests where we found that we both are ok. But still i am not able to understsnd why i am not able to conceive even though i am not having problems.
