Infertility Update

Hey guys! About two months ago I went to the doctor...and a few weeks ago I finally got my test results back. I'm glad I forced myself to go (was really hard). It all came down to me really wanting to find out what may be behind the three miscarriages I've had... So, I had two ultrasounds, one internal and one external, and a battery of blood tests (thyroid test, day 3 FSH...and others that I can't remember)

All the tests came back inconclusive. I appear to be fine. I'm both relieved and disappointed, as you can imagine. On one hand it's nice to have a list of things that it's not. On the other hand they still don't know what it is... I just wish I had more to report!

For now about the only thing I can do is wait until I become pregnant again and then call right away. I'll basically have a high risk pregnancy (as in, I'll get seen right away, get an ultrasound and extra blood work, yay). So waiting on that.

I'm glad I went. But I'm still anxious.

It has also been one year since my first miscarriage with my husband. I made a video about it, sort of an open letter for my baby.

Well, it is good to hear that none of the things they might have guessed are wrong--but it's got to be frustrating not to have any answers or obvious solutions, either!

Your video made me tear up and think of reading Little Pilgrim's Progress (a sweet children's adaption of PP) when I was a kid; I guess because of the idea of family waiting for you. It was a lovely thing to share! And I really hope all goes well with your attempts to figure this out!

I'm sorry it made you cry :) It made me cry too several time while making it. And it really helped me heal as well. Hugs!
