DETOURS AND A SECRET

secret Pictures, Images and Photos

For the IComLeavWe'ers new to my blog, let me give you a brief-ish run-down of how I came to travel this TTC road. I've gone from Point A (amenorrhea) and hit all the detours common for women with PCOS, and am still trying to get to Point B (baby... Duh).

Point A: No period until age 18 (1995)
Detour 1: Put on birth control to regulate cycles
D2: Got engaged and stopped birth control and menses also stopped (2001)
D3: Diagnosed with PCOS and given Metformin. Still no regular cycles (2003)
D4: Tried acupuncture
D5: Tried Mayan abdominal massage
D6: Tried dysglycemia diet
D7: Tried Chinese herbs
D8: Still no regular cycles after three years of alternative therapies, so I found a local RE (2006)
D9: Was put back on Metformin and added Femara and HCG to the mix and got pregnant
D10: Miscarried
D11: Tried for another year using the same protocol with no luck
D12: Three failed IUI's and one good bout of OHSS (2008)
D13: Got approved for private adoption and wait, wait, wait to be matched
D14: And today... on to the next leg of our journey trying to get to Point B

When I get a little more nerve, I will blog about it. But for right now, it stays a secret. Check back soon to see if I crumble under the pressure of secrecy.

Giggling out loud. Okay, sorry, but I had to share. :)

I find adoption super exciting. I think that's the road we will go down if we can't get pregnant - looking forward to checking in on your journey.

Happy ICLW!

Thanks for the comment on my blog... the insensitve portrayal of being barren in the media is apalling ...hope to see one that I can say as yes, this movie speaks of IF and captures her journey exactly!

Wishing you the very best of luck in your journey to baby!

Getting from point A to point Baby is never as easy as we'd like, but all of us dealing with infertility keep trying like the Energizer Bunny! Good luck with your IVF cycle and adoption. - ICLW
