Hi ladies, I am so happy to be here! DH and I tried for 2 1/2 years for child #2, and had two miscarriages and then an ectopic. After the ectopic and removal of my right tube, we could no longer get pregnant. We started treatment with an RE in January, and he discovered a cyst on my left ovary that wouldn't go away. DH and I were convinced there was something preventing the eggs from my left ovary from getting to the tube, but RE refused to check for (or treat) endometriosis. So, DH and I made the decision last month that, with only my right ovary and my left tube to work with and AMA, it was time to give up.
So we were shocked to find ourselves pregnant this month, our first month of "not trying!" And, the first ultrasound showed that the corpus luteum cyst is on the right side. So this little bean somehow made it from my right ovary to my left tube!
Looking forward to getting to know you ladies over the next few months. And to joining the other 2IF grads on their weekly grad update!
