My name is Falyssa, I'm 26, and engaged to the most awesome person for me. Unfortunantly, I've also been trying off and on for almost 7 years to get pregnant. I know I have some hormonal issues, and I'm also on the... *ahem* weighty side.
Actively, we have been trying since October to get pregnant, and nothing. I have had a few moments when I'll be like a week late and think "YAY! Its happened!" but then, no positive pregnancy test, and negative test at the resource center... on top of a lecture about 'God's plan for me'
Before my fiance and I met last year, I was having MAJOR issues, and actually had surgery to check for endometriosis and PCOS, and nothing. This is after I had a cyst burst in the middle of a voice lesson in 2010.
What makes this tricky for me is the fact that I had no problem getting pregnant with my first, and all the doctors will say is 'oh, you just need to lose a little weight.' I HATE being told that. My metabolism is very sluggish, and my ability to exercise is limited due to having osteo arthritis in my knees.
I don't know what's going wrong with my body, but I do know that I've been trying to conceive for 6 months.
Wow, can't offer any great advice as I'm just TTC my first for 6 months now.....but I can offer some encouragement and best wishes. Good luck!
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.
And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. 'Blessings' by Laura Story (What if trials of this life, are your mercies in disguise) Glorious Ruins
Last Wednsday, I had a D&C after a transvaginal u/s revealed a big build up of tissue and what looked like polyps. My primary referred me to a specialist who had me scheduled for a D&C a month later. While the specialist was in there, he discovered not only 3 polyps, but a partial uterine septum. I haven't heard anything back from him on the polyps as to if they were cancerous or not, and knowing that I have the septum, I know that increases my chance of miscarrying by 25%. Soo frustrating and still no baby.
I'm so sorry to hear of your troubles!! TTC can be so frustrating and bring you down when it doesn't go according to what you thought it would. I hope you find answers soon and best of luck to you!! Try not to let it drag you down (easier said than done, I know)!
