Quoting (*Melly*):" Im still bummed out cause I might have problems trying to conceive. He wants us to give it try first ... [snip!] ... under control before TTC... so Im losing weight and taking meds. It sucks that its been one bad thing after another. "
Would you like to hear my story?
I was told that kids weren't in my future. I had 3 m/c and was told I had a blood disorder. There was no proper diagnosis of the blood disorder. Then I went YEARS without so much as a faint line on test. Nothing. We tried and tried. I had severe endometriosis (surgery diagnosed and treated), had the HSG proceedure and nothing. It seemed like my dream of being a mom was never going to happen. My husband and I decided that if we didn't concieve on our own, that we were going to adopt. We didn't want to do the fertility meds or IVF any of that. We felt that it was God telling us that we were ment to open our hearts and give a child a home that otherwise wouldn't know the love of two parents and have what we had to offer. Well, we gave up. We started the adoption application process when all of a sudden BAM pregnant. I finally got a positive pregnancy test. Because of my m/c history, I went in for an early u/s at the dr's request and TWINS! I was pregnant with fraternal twins. Today those little babies are beautiful 4yr old girls. After the girls it was like my body reset. I got pregnant 2 more times m/c and then the third time with my son. He is a happy wild 2yr old tike into everything. During my pregnancy with him, my blood disorder was finally properly diagnosed and we had some complications but, at the end of the day, all is well. I did just have a partial hyseterectomy but, I am ok with it. It was that or risk losing my life.
Basically what I am saying is that we are all capable of a small miracle in our life. It is all up to you to recieve them. My BFF has low egg supply. She has a little girl who will turn 2, 3 days before my son turns 3. Just don't stress yourself.
If you are concerned about your over all health, trust me when I say that it is not worth destroying your health to have a child. My son is 2 1/2 and I am still not able to keep up the way I should with my children. I was blood transfusion dependent for 2 years including while pregnant with him. I had a surgery that nearly cost me my life to help give me a better quality of life with this blood disorder. Talk to your primary care physician and your OB in depth about all this if it eases your mind. Otherwise, know that you don't have to have a baby born of your blood to be a parent. Being a parent is in your heart and adoption is always an option. I will be going to adopt that 4th child as soon as I am well. I have to have that even number of kids. lol
Just enjoy and don't stress too much. This is supposed to be a magical time. If I could do it over again, I wouldn't have stressed so much and I would have enjoyed it more.
