Many posts in the past 2 years have made mention of our struggle with infertility. Our battle with infertility and endometriosis is not one that is uncommon. So many people suffer. In fact 1 out of 6 couples struggle with infertility. It causes a lot of heartache, sadness, defeating feelings, feelings of inadequacy and LOTS of anger and many many more.
There is never a day that goes by when you have infertility that something doesn't trigger one of the above feelings. Some days even getting out of bed is bad. Really REALLY bad.
Well, for now our struggle and battle is over. It is still early and it is still a hold your breathe kind of time but we are finally able to say we are pregnant. After double and triple doses of fertility medications we are finally seeing 2 lines!
We had our first ultrasound today. Super early! But since we are high risk we get to have things done a little differently. We are not high risk because we used fertility meds. We are high risk because Tyler came 15 weeks early.
We are measuring barely 7 weeks ( which is about right according to our charts) but because of the large scar on my uterus and the muscles that are not lining up correctly we have to go in for a better look on the 28th of December. There is definitely something in there and now we just kinda wait till we get a little bigger.
The plan to ward off a early delivery includes a Cerclage, p17 shots, increased amounts of visits and lots of rest and chocolate. We will see a perinatologist around 12 weeks or as soon as we see that everything is still going good ( after the 28th) then we will be able to sit down and have a chit chat with the Perinatologist.
Because of the scarring on my uterus and the fact that the muscles don't line up so great we are really being watched. But overall we are hoping for a uneventful 36 weeks.
We are super excited and are super glad to not be battling the fertility front at the moment. We are so excited to have a new baby in our home and family.
