I was active on this board a a couple of years ago. I have a 7 year old DS whom I got pregnant with no problem and I have a 7 month old DS that we were blessed with due to my Best Friend who carried him for us. Well after two losses and multiple years of infertility it was determined that I needed a hysterectomy. Well I had the hysterectomy in June and I am now starting to feel very emotional about it. Although I have two DS that are my life, I feel like something has been taken away from me that I will never get back. Unfortunately this is something that no one I know has gone through and it is hard for someone to understand. It still stings when I hear that other people are pregnant. I would love another child, but unless we come into some money (having a gestational carrier was very expensive) So I guess my question is, does anyone know if there is a board for this? Or, does anyone know someone who has dealt with this? How did they get through it?
