My husband and have a beautiful 4 year old daughter and have been trying have baby #2 for 2 1/2 years now. I thought maybe connecting with other people that are going through the same thing it might help me. Sometimes I feel like I'm drowning and I have nobody to turn to. My husband does the best that he can but he's not going through it the same way I am. A little back story, we had some trouble conceiving our daughter. After a year of trying on our own we ended up having to get help from a fertility specialist but after 6 months we got pregnant.
Now fast forward to present day, we've been trying for 2 1/2 years (2 years with the fertility specialist), 2 miscarriages, discovered that I had a uterine defect that most likely caused those miscarriages and had it fixed and now it's been 6 months since having that surgery and we're still not pregnant. So far all we've done is IUI and now we've actually broken down and considered IVF. All the doctor's are telling us that it's our best bet even though our daughter was conceived with IUI. I think the worst part is all the waiting. The last miscarriage happened around this time last year and it went on forever. Little did I know it was because I had an incomplete miscarriage due to the defect. So since a year ago we have been able to try only once. We finally made an appt for an IVF consultation for the end of this month. Last month we thought we would give IUI one more try but we ended up cancelling the cycle because I had hyperstimulation and had too many follicles. Now I'm waiting for my next cycle to start again so we can give it another go before IVF. I feel like my body is working against me.
I do my best to keep going, stay positive, and not let every little set back crush me but it's so hard. Everytime I hear about someone I know getting pregnant it breaks my heart. I so want to be happy for them but it's so hard. Anyways, that's my story. Thanks for listening!!

Hi all- my husband and I have been trying for quite some time to conceive. We've gone through tons of testing/screenings and doctors can not tell me why I can not stay preganant. Everything on both sides seems to check out just fine. We had 3 IUI's the third one ending in a chemical pregnancy. We did a round of IVF after getting 9 viable eggs only 1 survived to day 5. We transfered and finally...
