Since I started dealing with infertility, I’ve found so many amazing women through the blogosphere. Their stories have touched my life in ways I never thought possible, and every day, I find a new blog to pore over, a new woman to hope for, a new story that gives ME hope.
So this month, I signed up for IComLeaveWe! It’s a first for me, but I’m pretty excited about finding some new blogs to read and some new women to connect with.
For those of you who are here because you found my blog through the IComLeaveWe link, welcome! I’m Amanda, I’m 29, and I have a beautiful little girl who will be 3 in May. My husband and I have been trying to conceive #2 since June of 2009. I’ve gotten pregnant 4 times since then, but each pregnancy ended in early miscarriage. After the second, I found out my progesterone is low, so I take Prometrium after ovulation. After I had the fourth, I was ready to quit, but my OB convinced me not to. After lots of blood tests, I was diagnosed with protein C deficiency. My OB and my hematologist think that my blood isn’t circulating well enough to allow the implanted egg to stay implanted and develop, so this cycle, I started on Lovenox injections on CD12. I’m currently 8DPO, waiting to see if I’m pregnant this time.
I’m pretty terrified, but we really want another baby in our family, so we’re doing what it takes.
Anyway, I love comments, and I love commenting back, so I can’t wait to hear from you!
