I'm new here, so I thought I'd introduce myself. I'm Vanessa, I have an amazing DH and a beautiful 5yr old DD.
DH and I have been ttc for almost three years now. We haven't been actively trying for the last year, as DH had to have a very intricate back surgery. But now he's all better and I'm trying to get motivated to get back in the saddle.
So here's what we've been through so far... We had DH checked out and he got amazing results. My HSG test came back "normal" though there was no flow through my left tube. The one singular blood test my obgyn did came back normal. He referred us to a fertility specialist, who diagnosed me with unexplained infertility, possibly with hostile cervical mucus. I asked him if we could test for that and he said there was no point, I needed to go straight to iuis which wasn't covered by my insurance so it would be 1000$ per treatment not including meds and they accept all major credit cards, but not to get my hopes up because I only had a 2% chance of ever getting pregnant, and after 3 iui cycles we would try ivf. I asked him if there were any other options and he said " try the Internet." ... ???
So I went back to my obgyn and asked him to run another blood test to see if my hormones were still straight and possibly do ultrasounds to make sure I still had eggs and that I was releasing them, and if he could refer me to a new fertility doc. He said since I was only 26 (at that time, I'm 28 now) there was no point. When I started crying he prescribed me Prozac for my " pmdd"... (btw I've never taken it, that's just ridiculous. Three days a month DH can suck it up and pick up his own socks).
DH and I want a child together so very much. My DD was from a previous abusive relationship, so this is a journey we've never taken before. It may seem selfish, but I long with all my heart to have that experience of having a pregnancy with a loving supportive partner. And I want to give him that gift as well. I feel like a broken woman. Like I can't give myself and my husband the greatest of Gods gifts. I feel like our family is incomplete. And it breaks my heart when DD asks for a little brother and I don't know what to say. It feels so hopeless.
So I'm trying to get motivated to find someone willing to help us despite our (relatively) young age. I really could use any advice and support.
Thanks for listening ladies!!!
