ICLW this week

Hi all from ICLW!
 

For those of you who are new to my blog... I am 26 and my husband, Brandon is 35.  We've been TTC our first child since Summer 2010.  We always knew that we wanted to become parents.   We had no idea that our journey would include so many obstacles!  Brandon had cancer when he was about 25 years old.  He went through chemotherapy, which greatly affected his SA.  I took BCP for about 7 years or so, and found that I had irregular cycles for months after coming off the pill.  At our first HSG, the doctor found that I had a Uterine Septum.  I've had two surgeries (Laparoscopy & Hysteroscopy) to attempt to remove the septum.  Also, I have Stage II Endometriosis.

Right now we are waiting to see if my uterine septum issue is corrected, and hospitable enough to continue forward with IVF.  For more details about our journey, you can visit the page titled, "My Story."  

Thanks for visiting!  ICLW #14

  1. Stopping by from ICLW. I hope you are on your way to success after your septum repair! I just had an operative hysteroscopy yesterday to remove some fibroids and we will be starting IVF #1 soon. We are dealing with male factor IF due to a varicocele. I am also happy to hear the your husband is doing well after cancer!

    1. I hope you have a good recovery. I'm still waiting to see what my doctor thinks about the residual septum in my uterus. Maybe we can be IVF buddies! I started Provera today to induce AF! I should begin a new cycle around April 3rd!

  2. Thanks for stopping by and following my blog! I read your story and we both had our septum removals on Sept. 8th:) I am sorry you have had to keep dealing with the septum issues but hopefully things will be in place once you meet with your Dr. to discuss your next steps after the last HSG. Looking forward to following your blog!

    1. That's such a coincidence that we both had our surgeries on the same day! I'm hoping that I won't require a third. I'm sick of surgeries!! =) Thanks for the support, Katie! I LOVE your blog!

  4. i'm also here from ICLW and wanted to say that i'm inspired by all that you and your husband have gone through and by the way you are leaning on your faith through this journey. i hope you get a clearer answer about moving forward with IVF and that the septum is able to be resected enough to make your womb the perfect vessel for your living child.

    1. Thank you, Crystal! All we can do is trust in God and His plan. I don't always like His plan and timing, but I find comfort knowing that there is a greater purpose to all of this. =)

  5. My husband and I also have an age gap, so I can understand what that's like :)

    Wishing you the best of luck on your journey!

    1. I've grown to LOVE our age gap! =) I think he enjoys telling people that his wife is ten years younger. It makes me feel like I'm his trophy!!

    1. I just posted your entry about etiquette and questions not to ask on my blog's Facebook page. God had definitely blessed my husband and me. Our journey has been difficult, but it is all a part of God's master plan. =)
