6 years.......

Well in a few weeks it will officially be 6 years of TTC. How crazy is that??? I haven't even ever held a job fro that long!!! I can't believe that I have devoted 6 years of my life to this gah!! We are still moving forward with adoption, but I am still having a hard time letting TTC go. Honestly I don't know where we even stand with it right now. I am just now starting to get almost BFN tests.....Can we say dragged out much? I mean for crying out loud I would be 14 weeks right now and I am still getting the faintest of faint line!!!I haven't been in to have a beta in about 3 weeks just because I was sick of being poked.... I should prob go in soon but I know it is under 10. I will prob go back on BCP's for a few months just because that is what is best for my PCOS, and I need to replenish my B vitamins since the shots I have had sucked them all out of me and I am seriously feeling the effects of that, hair loss, tired, etc. Anyway I am thinking of setting up an HSG in Sept just to see what is going on with my tube, if it is now blocked or??? I guess that way it would be easier to put things to rest if I know it is blocked now, or on the flip side continue TTC if it is clear...... I do know one thing though if my tube is not blocked, NO MORE FERTILITY DRUGS!!! I do not think it is a coincidence that I have had 2 ectopics being on them, so all natural from now on period!! If I only knew then what I know now......sigh...... Anyway sorry this is so long, and that I haven't posted much. I have been lurking around and keeping up with most of you, and for any new comers that I missed, WELCOME!!!

Hun..I don't mean to alarm you..but you need to see your ob and schedule a scan....with my first miscarriage my body wouldn't do what it was supposed to and i kept getting really faint bfps..and it showed that all the bits hadn't gone.
Even with a D and C they can't guarentee getting everything as its a blind procedure....you need to get it checked sweets..please.
I am always chased up to make sure I have got a BFN and then they release me.

Huge hugs...hey..I get to see you in about 84 odd days or so and I am going to give you the biggest hug!!!

:bigarmhug: 6 yrs - that's a long tough road my friend :bigarmhug:
Glad to hear that you're going fwd with the adoption papers - I agree with Liz, please go get checked to see why you're still getting faint lines
Be sure to have a good stiff drink for each year that you've been on this road - you deserve it! I'll be sure to have one for you as well

I completely agree with Liz. It seems like after 14 weeks you should not be seeing any BFP, faint or not. I would go back to the doctor and tell him or her.

Have you seen other doctors in 6 years? Sometimes it's just a matter of finding the right doctor. I learned that first hand with my mom and her illness.

Carissa! Go to the doctor! With my m/c in September I had to have 2 D&C's- the second one ultrasound guided because there was "residual tissue" left after the first D&C. Please get yourself checked out soon.

HUGS to you for having the endurance to keep this up for 6 years. And I agree with Tacie- one drink per year you've been at this.

Thanks for the concern ladies, not really much a Dr. visit would do. I had an ultrasound a few weeks ago and my lining was thin and they have NEVER been able to see anything either in my uterus or in my tubes. I asked about a D&C a while back and he said it wouldn't be worth while in my case. Plus my #'s have been going down, he said sometimes it can take a few months for #'s to return to 0. I was hoping that wouldn't be my case. Such is life I suppose. He said really the only thing he could do would be to do exploratory surgery.......Yeah I am going to have to pass on that one lol. About seeing different Dr.'s I think I have seen something like 15 or so in the past 6 years. I have been doing a lot of research and for some fertility meds and treatments can cause more harm than good, and for other's it can provide just what they need, I am not one of those people. I had absolutely no problem getting preg with my first 2 and I know in my heart of hearts that it is becasue I was at a healthy weight. Blah! If my tube is still clear I know that I will have to get down to my pre DS weight to get pregs again, there is no easy way out in my case Sad

Thanks for all the support ladies, not sure how I would get through all this with out ya all!!!

:bigarmhug: I have tasted a slice of your frustration and the whole multiple doctors thing... not sure if you're interested in alternative medicine but it's really been helping me & DH - for one, I've got the right motivation (baby!!) but I have lost 10lbs almost effortlessly once I was nourishing my body systems that needed help... Anyways, that being said, hang in there!!! I hope your tube will still be free, clear & open!!! :bigarmhug:

:openarms: I'm so sorry that you have been going through this. I know exactly how you feel about the amount of time you have put into TTC. I have put 7 yrs with no success. I cannot afford IVF. I have thought about adoption, but DH says to leave it in God's hands. I wish you the best of luck. If you ever need someone to chat with, I am always here. Just pm me
