Hello Ladies-

I'm normally a lurker but I've been so anxious lately about ttc that I could really use some support from people who know....

A little about me:

Years of ttc w/no bfp. Finally got testing @ hmo-- dr. couldn't find anything decided to try Clomid-- bfp but loss @ 6 weeks. After 6 more months of ttc, finally referred to reproductive endo. for further testing. Found out my tubes were totally blocked. Went on to IVF. BFP first try, no problems in pregnancy, normal delivery. Decided to try for #2, did IVF again, BFP first try-- found out trisomy 21 @ early prenatal testing. Delivered via caesarian @ 36 weeks. Healthy but developmental delays.

I agree! That is a tremendous amount of pain you have went through. I am kind of the same way. My first pregnancy was normal. Happy healthy girl in 2004. My husband and I got pregnant just before our wedding in 2010. Our wedding was in September and we decided to stay close to home for our honeymoon. We went in for an appointment and all they could see was a yolk sac at 8 weeks. Doc waited a week to see if I was off on my dates. Week later there was no change and confirmed a drop in HCG. D&C on October 9th at 9 weeks or so. Got pregnant again 3 months later. Sono at 6 1/2 weeks showed a heartbeat in 150s. Went for a check up at the 12 week mark and doc couldn't find a heartbeat. Sent me for another sono. No heartbeat. D&C at 12 weeks on April 20th, 2011. I can't seem to stay pregnant either. My doctor is going to start monitoring my progesterone levels if I get preganat again. My husband is deployed right now so we won't be able to try again until the end of the year. We missed ovulation during 2 week r&r. I wish the best of luck to you. Try and keep faith, I know its hard!
