About my Journey

I realised I didn't really provide much of an introduction on my first blog. After reading so many other stories, I thought that I might share my own.

I have been with my husband now for 7 years and we have been married for two. Since we were married we have been actively trying to conceive. We had our first miscarriage 6 years ago not long after we first started dating and that pregnancy was unplanned. Now, that we are trying so hard to fall pregnant, fertility is alluding us.

I have had issues with my cycles for as long as I can remember. I have gone through so many OBGYN's due to the fact that nobody could quite work out what was happening and why.
Finally in 2006 I was diagnosed with PCOS and that particular DR just sent me on my way and said to lose weight.

No matter how hard I tried, the weight just kept kreeping on no matter the diets or hours of exercise.
Finally in 2011 we found a specialist to help us with our fertility issues. We have ruled out hubby, in his words he has "super sperm" and so it is all up to me.
I am now currently going through treatment with Clomid and frequent blood tests to monitor all my levels. I am starting to feel like a pin cusion.

On top of it all, my specialist has recently told me that I also have a Subseptate Bicornuate Uterus. Thankfully I don't have the kidney problems that can so often be linked to this condition.
We are at this stage still hopeful for the future with our fertility but it is hard to be positive from day to day knowing that everyone around me is having babies and are falling pregnant successfully.
