Four miscarriages and one cancelled IVF
My husband and I have been trying for the past three and a half years. I have had four miscarriages. After my first one (at 6 weeks), I went to see a fertility specialist who told me I was still young (31) and that I should just continue to try. I've had three IUIs, one ending in an ectopic, and the other two ending with a miscarriage (9 weeks). I conceived naturally, I heard and saw the heartbeat, but again, at week 8-9, there was no longer a heartbeat. I was taking progesterone right after IUI and up until the miscarriage.
I have been tested for everything, any and every test has been done included Progesterone levels. I have had two "products of conception" analyzed and one reexamined in another all with "inconclusive" results.
After almost three years and 4 miscarriages, I was referred to a miscurrent pregnancy loss specialist ( I had to beg and harass doctors to be referred as I was still "young"). Well, now I am 35 years old doing my first IVF cycle, or should I say I was... until this morning when my doctor cancelled the cycle due to underdeveloped follicles.
My husband is becoming frustated as am I. He sees no positive outcome and has almost given up. I am not sure how much longer I can take it myslef. I am frustrated. Its difficult to have to deal with all these infertility issues, but more stressful when I see people with children telling me... "don't worry... it will happen for you too... I have hope". I think that's the worst thing one can say to a person who is undergoing fertility issues. I am tired, and many times I want to give up on motherhood... maybe it's not in the cards.
But, I consider myslef a very determined person and after reading about the woman who had 15 miscarriages, I cannot lose hope. I plan on starting another cycle of IVF hopefully by next month.
Please continue to pray for us... and maybe one day we may be blessed with a child.
