- Wedding: August 2013 - backyard in the woods
TTC/TTA: on pause from TTC for medical reasons<br />
CD/DPO: a bazillon (or about 6.5 months)<br />
Cycles TTC/Charting: 12 cycles TTC, 10 charting, 6.5 months pause, so about a 1.5 years since we started :(<br />
Age: me: 32, Darling Husband: 39<br />
POAS/AF Date: early/mid December if all goes well, then we can start trying again!!<br />
BFP Plan and/or Known Issues: Severe endometriosis. I’ve had 2 laproscopies, one prior to TTC and one after TTC unsuccessfully for a year. My second one revealed that my Endo had become so severe that they couldn’t get it all on one surgery: I went from Stage 1 to Stage 4 Endo in the year since coming off BC to TTC. I was put on 6 months of Zoladex to heal and reduce the regrowth of my Endo until I could have another surgery to remove the rest (hopefully). I’m worried it’s gotten worse gain since I’ve been hurting a lot again the past few months, especially along my bladder and bowels, where I had a LOT of Endo during my last surgery. I had an ultrasound during my last Zoladex appointment but they couldn’t find anything, so hopefully it’s just adhesions that have grwon since the last surgery. I’ve become a bit pessamistic with this whole thing though*sigh*
Since I’ve been in fake menopause from the Zoladex for 6 months next week, I haven’t been able to TTC. I have my next laproscopy scheduled for Nov 24th (finally!!), and my 6th shot of Zoladex on Wednesday. I will decide Wednesday wheter to risk another month of Zoladex or find another method to stop my Endo from growing like wildfire until my surgery date. My tubes were clear and my ovaries looked okay during my last surgery, and the doc will check again during this one as well. I hope and pray that I can get all of the Endo removed during my next surgery and have success TTC shortly afterwards. Endo is the devil🙁
Link to Chart: no point until my cycles start again
Random Question: How many siblings do you have? Are you the oldest, youngest, somewhere in the middle? I’m the oldest. I have 2 younger brothers, one 2 years younger and one 7 years younger.<br />
As for the poll, I chose Thanksgiving dinner. I love fall in general, the smell of the leaves, cider and hot cinnamon donuts (and the taste of the latter, but not the leaves ), but those weren’t choices:) I chose dinner becuause I love getting to together with my family, and DHs’s too.
I can’t wait until my surgery!! It feels like it’s taking forever now that it’s scheduled. I hate that I have to wait, but I can’t take a week off the first semester of my new job, that’d be missing 5 days of classes! I should be TTC again about the same time as you candy11: MrsFairyBee:. The first 6 months post surgery are our best chances. If we get pregnant right away the timing will be horrible, as I’m a teacher, but I don’t care anymore. Bring it on! If this doesn’t work we’ll have to move on to IVF.
I’m still following along with the thread, but as fast as this thread moves I haven’t been Roll Calling all the time, since it feels dumb since there’s no change, and no chart to stalk from me. I’m trying to be on WB less since it just makes me sad that I can’t TTC again yet and anxious for the time to fly by! 6+ months of this waiting has gotten old. We need to be trying again already, geesh! Snuggling all day with my adorable 2 month old nephew last weekend *may* have stoked my baby wanting fires up to 10 again now too, so I’m trying to avoid thinking about it 😉
Turtle83: I’m so glad to hear all is well! Hearing that hearbeat must be such a joy after all of your struggles:) I’m so happy for you guys. You give me hope as well.
