Let it Be...

I have NEVER wanted to have a disease.

Who would???

But the closer and closer I get to my upcoming surgery, the more I hope that I actually DO have endometreosis. It's hard to believe that after 4 long years a doctor has finally discovered the reason for our infertility. How did all of our other doctors miss something so important?

Of course we will not know if I have endometreosis until the doctor actually goes inside for the laproscopy, but I must admit that I'm praying to the Lord to let it be...let this be the start of David and I beginning our family.

I too hope this is it for you!
Your desire to be a Mom breaks my heart!
However - Why have you done a few IUIs without having a laproscopy?
IUI - have no chance of working if your tubes are blocked?
When I had treatments a Lapro was the very first thing they did..
My tubes were clear and IUI still did not work ( I did three ) I have had 3 beautiful babies through IVF..
I am just wondering why you had IUI if you were not sure that your tubes were not blocked??
Best to you!
Praying you have a baby this time next year...

I am SOOOOO praying that this surgery works to help in your desire to become a mother. I think I have told you before that I got pregnant within 6 months of having my surgery to "clean out the cobwebs" (that's what the doctor called it). My God bless you through this and may you have a quick recovery.

Lianna -

I have read your blog but have not commented. My daughter also stuggles with infertility. She finally had laproscopic surgery and the doctor was shocked to find endometreosis because she had none of the classic symptoms. She then had 4 IUI's, none of which worked. On her first IVF, the doctor implanted 2 and one split - yep, that meant three. I am praying for you.

I'm so glad your surgery is soon and you may have some resolution (and some pitter patters soon!) When I had my laparoscopy for an ovarian cyst, that's when my RE found the endometriosis. In honesty, I was SO aggravated that other doctors had missed it and I'd done 2 IUIs already without any knowledge of it.

Then I thought more about it and honestly, I had NONE of the symptoms of endo, save an irregular cycle and that wasn't even all that regularly irregular! I really didn't even BELIEVE my RE when he said he found some, until he showed me pictures, because I'd heard so many different symptoms of it and had NONE.

So, I guess I was proof enough that one can have it (and a pretty decent case of it too!) and not have a CLUE. I couldn't blame them for not doing surgery for no reason (though I have to say, I sometimes wish they could just say, "Well, we're not sure why you can't get pregnant, we're going in!"

Praying for success on the 10th!!!
