Newb Intro — The Bump
Secondary IF

Newb Intro


I haven't been been on the bump since 2012, but have things changed!

I am a mother of 2, 11yo boy and almost 2yo girl, and we have been TTC without success for 7 months now. 
DH and I found out we were pregnant with our 3rd child in late February 2015. The pregnancy resulted in a cornual ectopic pregnancy. I was placed in the hospital within hours of finding out for fear of rupture, by my MD orders. My right tube (and ectopic) were removed March 3, 2015. Previous to that I have multiple kathe fibroids removed from my uterus and a cesarean. There was extensive scarring after all was said and done and needed a final procedure to remove all the scar tissue to safely try and "house" a final pregnancy if I could. This was done in July 2015. 
We started actively trying September 2015. 
After recent testing with the fertility specialist I was informed that my left ovary seems to not be producing any follicles and only my right is. (That the side without the tube)
I am scheduled for another U/S in 2 weeks (5/3) to see if my lefty has kicked it into gear and will start the process of IUI of so. 
If after 3 months of failure we will move on to IVF.
