November ICLW

Thanks for stopping by to visit my blog. A little of my back story. I suffer from endometreosis, ovarian cysts, fibroids, polyps, and most recently irregular bleeding due to a thickened uterine wall. I have had several surgeries along the way. My husband and I have been struggling to save up for IVF. However, recent conditions have us starting to consider adoption or donor egg. The abundance of information is completely overwhelming. It's only the single most important decision of our lives. The cost of having children (preferably our own) is almost unbearable. The emotions of going through all of this is starting to take a toll on us (me in particular)! Though we have several friends and family members who are very supportive not everyone completely understands our situation! Comments that are not meant to be mean can hurt a lot! Face.book posts that to most seem normal about morning sickness, feeling a baby kick, or just snuggling with your children are often painful to read. This where I am in my journey, completely in limbo!!!! Thanks for every ones kind words and support!

Oh Limbo land, how I despise that location. I hate that finances have to play a role in any of this, too. The weight of each decision can be so much to bear. Then you add in Face.book and other comments from fertiles and it becomes even more difficult. Thinking of you!

Thanks for your kind comment on my blog.

That's an awfully lot to deal with. Praying you'll get your well-deserved big break soon!

I think that we have the same uterus! I have all that you listed as well as my dh having problems too. Finances played a huge part in our decision to turn to embryo adoption. It is so very sad that we (infertiles) have to worry about money on top of it all. Hope that you have clear direction soon as well as the money to pursue it.

Stopping in from ICLW.

I so know what you mean. It is so much information that your head is bound to explode.

I went through IVF w/Donor eggs from my sister because I have POF. We have lost three boys and currently put TTC on pause.

Wishing you all the best though


*hugs* to you

Hola here from ICLW. Ah hon, comments, how ever well intentioned can hurt more than anyone knows. I have hidden everyone on FB and will continue to do so.

These are dark moments and my heart goes out to you and will leave you with the wish that this are the worst days and that happier moments are on the near horizon.
