A little scared to be here again...

I don't recognize any names at first glance. a little nervous to be here. Today is the first time in over a year. I have been through IVF before. Had a successful experience( He is my 2 1/2 year old little miracle) and about a year and half ago I had  a terrible one. The FET took ( smile) but 2 and half months along i started to hemorrhage and the stress of it sent me into seizures on the table where they did emergency D&C......lost the baby and most of my confidence in what turned in to a pretty scary 5 day hospital ordeal. Lots of guilt about how my body failed and so on. Doctors have assured me that i have no reason to believe that would happen again and the every pregnancy is different.....anyway, its been awhile. I'm brushing off my knees and hands and ready to try again. (smile)  We have our consult on the 29th. I'm sure the next FET will be out a handful of months after that ( we are in the middle of trying to figure out financing) but I'm cautiously excited and just wanted to say hello and introduce myself. I forgot what an amazing support this message board was. Looking forward to getting to know everyone again. Just a bit nervous at even the possibilty of reliving the last time. So im taking a big breath and resolved that whatever experience lies ahead I am going to be strong. We learn and grow from good and the not so good. I guess here we "grow" again.


Warmly,


Nipote

Welcom back! I too am returning after a successful IVF journey, my son was born May of 2009, and we will be starting a FET soon. I look forward to following your progress and celebrating with you when you get that next BFP! These boards are amazing for support and advice, use them to the fullest. Good luck in your journey!
