Here We Go Again.....

Ok, I am sure a few of you are wondering what exactly happened with our last round of treatment and what this means for us now. Husband and I went to our appointment this morning and now that we have gotten some more information on where we are headed, I feel more comfortable sharing......

Not only did last months treatment not work, but my body (once again) is not wanting to cooperate. At today's appointment, the doctor confirmed what I have been fearing for several days: I have another cyst. This one is even larger than last time, but again (luckily) our doctor is hopeful over time it will shrink and disappear. It seems this is just my body's way of rejecting the treatment we are doing. We know that we can (and will) continue trying the injections/IUI's for several more cycles, but at the same time Husband and I are starting to consider if we will ultimately have to move into more aggressive treatment.

For now, we are back to the waiting game- no more treatment until the cyst has gone away! This means over the next several weeks I will probably not have any "baby updates" and during this time I would like to incorporate some more fun things into my blog- so suggestions are welcome!! Hopefully you all enjoy reading about our lives outside of our "baby drama" because thats mainly what I will be posting for a while :)

Prayers that the time will fly and the cyst will disappear overnight. Trust in God and all things are possible.

What a bummer that the treatment didn't work, and you have a cyst. But remember the postives out of this and that the doctor seems confident the cyst will go away on it's own. Just give your body the time to adjust and get ready for the next cycle. Maybe that is just the ticket you need to getting your BFP! I hope time goes by quickly for you so you don't get stuck in the ugly waiting game too long.

Wow, sorry to hear about the darn cysts. I am right there with you. It is so frustrating knowing there is not a quick and easy way to get rid of them and keep them from coming back. Keep keepin' on. I look forward to hearing more about life-y things from you!

I know it's hard to believe right now, but I do believe it will all work out in the end - and the bundle of joy will be worth it. Havign said that, since you want some fun ideas for your blog, and since it is Halloween - How about favorite costume or decorating ideas?

Al said...

Hey sweetheart - so sad that it didn't go as planned this time, but your attitude is something to applaud - and I know that when it all gets straightened out, there will be a beautiful baby at the end of it...Hang in there, enjoy a little "you" time, and know that I am thinking about you!

Hi there!

Don't give up hope. I can tell you with my whole heart that miracles do happen. While I have not struggled with infertility, I do have a miracle baby. There are only a few other women in the world with my disease (Cystinosis) who have had successful pregnancies. And I am typing all of this to you as my sweet baby doll miracle is sleeping in my lap. It WILL happen for you. ;)

Oh man I have so been there. One time when I found out I had a cyst I got a whole new outfit! I called it my cyst outfit! Hahaha! I was trying to joke through the pain obviously. I still have that sweater as a reminder. I'm happy to say I have a 5 year old daughter now (as well as a 2 year old son whom we adopted). I hope you will be blessed soon. I sincerely know exactly what all of that is like. :(
