Just wanted to introduce myself; I could really use support, and look forward to participating in this community and supporting others, too.
We've been TTC off and on for a while now, and were first interrupted by discovering I had massive fibroids (14 total, my uterus was the size of a 5 month pregnancy). I knew I had fibroids, but had been advised by my ob/gyn that they weren't in the cavity so I was best off TTC...turns out they grew rapidly, made me anemic, and made it impossible to conceive, of course. I had an open myomectomy May 2018, and a very tough recovery. We started TTC in February of 2019, and got our first BFP March 2019. I miscarried at 7 weeks. We got our second BFP in June 2019, but I've just miscarried again, this time around 6 weeks. I'm 40, and generally take good care of myself, but my AMH is pretty low. My doctor wants me to move to IVF ASAP, or at least do egg retrieval before trying naturally any longer.
I'm having a really hard time letting the idea of trying naturally go (and can hardly stand that at the moment we could be trying and aren't), but my doc thinks I will just continue to miscarry and is pretty adamant that I move forward with egg retrieval. So I'm trying to convince myself. She is pressuring me to do it NOW, but I have travel and work commitments that make it difficult until the last week of September. My feeling is that I can use that time to continue supplements I've started recently, quit drinking wine/coffee, clean up my diet, and just generally feel I've given it my best shot. She doesn't love this plan but agreed to it. Wondered what others think and how you are preparing yourself if you have a few months before egg retrieval.
