I am currently 3 weeks and 1 day post op (Laparoscopy, Hysteroscopy, D&C). I have healed well and physically feeling great.
4 weeks ago, Adam and I underwent blood tests – a lot of them!
Well, the results are in….. And what we thought was a long hard road already travelled to get to where we are just got a whole lot longer, and a whole lot harder.
After calling every day to my gynaecologists office for answers, he finally called me back. I could tell from the tone of his voice that he was not delivering happy news. Our worst fears were confirmed 😔 Triple Threat of Immune/Genetic issues.
I have mentioned in a previous post that I have been diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. I thought that was bad enough, ohh how wrong I was!
I have NK Cells , MTHFR Mutation Gene , Adam & I are also a DQ Alpha Gene Match – BOOM! Goodbye 2% chance of natural conception! Hello LIT treatments, Steroids, Blood Thinners, Intrepalids.
Our IVF Journey until this point has been a fucking breeze compared to what we are about to face.
At this point, I feel so deflated. Defeated almost. But I need to pick myself up and carry on.
With Mothers Day only 2 days away, it is only yet another reminder of the difficulties we face. Needless to say, I am thankful we are working.
We are both very anxious to speak to Dr Lolatgis, to better understand our chances of success. In the meantime there will be a lot of research!
I have just purchased Dr Alan Beer’s Book – Is your body baby friendly, I am excited to read it and learn more about what lies ahead for us.
As they say, what doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger!
Until Next Time
