Part of me can't believe I'm ttc again, but here I am.
I have been pregnant 4 times, but only 1 child (from the 4th pregnancy). The 3rd pregnancy, even though I miscarried, the placenta stuck. I had to have 3 D & Cs and a hysteroscopy that left a lot of scarring including complete occlusion of my right fallopian tube. During the testing as to why I wasn't getting pregnant after that miscarriage, I had an HSG done, which broke through some of the scarring, and I got pregnant with my son that very cycle. I had PROM at 35 weeks and since labor induction wasn't working, I had to have a c-section. That turned out to be a good thing because the placenta stuck again but since I had the c-section and it was accreta instead of precreta, they were able to remove it without a hysterectomy.
After that, even though I had always wanted more children, I decided that I should just be happy with the one I had and go on with my life. Periodically, I'd talk with my dr about having another child but was told that it was unlikely that I'd be able to get pregnant again anyway so I'd just give up.
Fast forward 8 years to my 40th birthday (a few months ago) and I decided that my life just wasn't complete without at least a 2nd baby. My husband actually first mentioned it to me. He has long known how much I wanted another and I think it finally clicked with him that we should try. I had been on Implanon and he went with me to talk to the dr (a new ob-gyn) and to get the Implanon removed. He has been very supportive.
I have been charting and my charts amazingly look very similar to my charts from before I had my son (2002 - 2003). I'm ovulating on the same day and seeing the same temps. I also use a microscope to check my saliva and OPKs.
Anyway, I am 10dpo on ttc cycle #3 and it's looking like this isn't the cycle, either, which has me depressed today and looking for an outlet. If I don't get the bfp before then, I have been referred to and have an appointment with a fertility specialist on Monday, which should be cd1. I'm hoping he'll at least run some tests to see how my hormone levels are and do another HSG to see if the scarring is worse after my c-section.
I know this was long so if you made it this far, thanks for letting me tell my story. It helped just getting it off my chest.
