Discovering Me

Me on having babies, losing babies, trying to have babies and hoping to bring this one home.

Finally, we catch a break

Well, we caught two actually.

One, the tumah, was totally benign. We knew that, but it was nice that the labs came back to confirm it. We are quite happy.

Two, well, I guess it could be three, but there was one piece of bad news, so 3 minus 1 is 2... The stitches that I thought looked nasty, the doc pronounced as okay. I have to go back in a week for a re-check, but he says they look good. As he explained all of that and showed us pictures from the surgery, he revealed that as they were working, they found I have endometriosis. They lasered off what they could find, but he thinks it's been part of our issue. I guess I'm one of the 20% who has it and has relatively few symptoms. As he explained it, he said that it didn't make us such great candidates for IUI as before, so he thought we should consider IVF. My heart sank.

UNTIL, he followed it with the news that the clinic has been made part of a study testing the differences between progesterone injections and vaginal suppositories. The drug company sponsoring it is paying for all the drugs (which I already have, but if it doesn't work, we can use next time, but I really hope I can toss) as well as the IVF treatment costs for the clinic. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT!!!??? Dr. Baby Maker asked us to participate in the study so we could get the free round!!! Oh-My-God.

It's all totally the same except that I will get the vaginal progesterone instead of the injection. I am so totally stoked. Jim nearly hit the floor when Dr. BM asked us. I wanted to kiss him...The doctor, not Jim. We have to get the all clear on the post op next week and then I will go off the pill and wait for my period. I can hardly believe it. This kind of stuff doesn't happen to me.

I am so happy.

    SEE????? I told you it was just the start of good things to come!!!! That is SO AWESOME, you've totally made my day!!!!!

    Honestly, I can't decide if the endo sucks or not. I mean, it does, but at least it's yet another answer as to WHY getting pg was taking so long. Regardless, that is incredible news!!!

    Just remember this when I'm drinking and you're huge with triplets.... hee hee hee
