Ready to share....

Some of you may remember me, I was more active in the beginning of this year....


DH and I had to put TTC on hold after we got some devastating news back in Feb...we found a new GYN who specialized in infertility, he was actually very nice and I felt very comfortable with him.  He wasw very positive and told me that he would try his hardest to help us.  Well, he ordered all these blood tests, including a chromosome test and Autoimmune test (ANA).  We got the reults for the ANA test, turns out it was positve which meant that my body was not letting the egg implant in the uterus.  The Dr. said it wouldn't be big deal, he could just give me blood thinners and I would be able to carry a baby to full term.  But then we got the results for the chromosome test.  Turns out I have 2 balanced translocations in my chromosomes which means that some of my eggs are abnormal.  This is the reason for the miscarriages... :0(


The Dr. told us that our options were to consult an RE for the following:  IVF with genetic testing, IVF with donor egg or adoption.  We actually went to the SHER Institute in Dallas and met with the RE (very nice Dr.), but when we met with the finance department, uggghh!!!!...I quit keeping track of the bill at 25k!  We were really bummed!!!  We were really discourage but kept our faith.  Family and friends kept us in their prayers, then one day I started thinking....the problem is not that I don't have good eggs, it's just a matter of getting the right one!  So DH and I prayed about it and we decided we were gonna start trying, or not preventing that is. ;0)


Shalli & Lucky, thanks for your little messages and prayers, that really meant alot when I was at my lowest!  Thank God for PW girls!

That is very encouraging to hear that 1) you have options still and 2) you are staying positive to keep trying.


Good luck and happy healthy thoughts to you both!

I am so happy to hear your update!  Karla you are such a huge inspiration to SO many women!  You are so strong and have gotten through SO much!  Your attitude amazes me to this day and you are so RIGHT!  All you need is one!  I had a hard remembering that too but the moment you realize it and remember it, its like a huge weight off your shoulders.  It only takes one egg and one sperm to make your perfect baby and I know you will get him or her very soon!


I pray for you daily and think of you always and I'm so happy to hear the progress you have made!  Keep your head up girlie, I have a feeling your time is very soon!  I always throw this one out there because this is how I got through: Proverbs 3:5: Lean not on your own understanding,but trust in Him and He shall direct your path.


Lots of love to you and DH!

I'm completely floored and in awe by your positive attitude! You've been incredibly strong through this and I look forward to your BFP just as much as you do :) You are completely right...all it takes is one.


The scripture Sarah posted is one of my favorites...and fits perfectly with your situation.


Continued love and prayers to you and DH!
