Just wanted to say hello

Post by Dishearten on Wed 16 Mar 2011 - 5:59

Hi to all of you.

I am new to this site, actually any site. I was feeling a bit blue today, so I though what the heck. :Embarassed

My husband and I decided in Nov 2009 that it's the right time for a baby. We have been TTC ever since. In Aug 2010 my husband was diagnosed with MS and we were told that his sperm count was only 16. Then in Sept 2010 I found out I was pregnant. Miracle! Very Happy I immediately thought that it was the Fertomed which I took in Aug. In Dec 2010 I had a miscarriage. Bummer! :Sad Nothing has happened since then. I know it is not so long ago, but every time I find out I am not pregnant is such a disappointment. :Worry I feel like I'm getting obsessed. All I read about is how to optimise our chances and everyone telling me to relax and forget about it, is just infuriating me. :angry

My husband is turning 40 this year and with his illness, I would really like to get pregnant as soon as possible. I have 2 older sisters and they didn't struggle, neither did my mom. I am back on Fertomed now for the second month and we do ovulation tests, but nothing. I know there isn't much you can do to assist me, but talking to people who understand what I'm going through might just help. I hope so! :Pray:

Thank you for each of you who took the time to make me feel welcome. It really brightened my mood. Thank you

To answer your question Eve, no I am not with a fertility specialist yet. I am going to my gynae on the 22nd of March where I will discuss my situation and ask her advice. She said she first have to do an ultrasound on day 12 to 14 of my cycle to determine whether I am producing more than one egg at a time, so that we can decide whether I can stay on fertomed or not. In the meantime I am still taking folic acid just for in case. Rolling Eyes

I would really like to find out more about all of you, I just have to find my way around the site and I don't know all the abreviasions yet. :Embarassed I find that it is much more comforting talking to women who went through the same thing, even though I don't really know you.

Enjoy your evening! Wave
