2014 had arrived. I reflected on 2013. It had been quite a year. We did IVF, had a miscarriage, I had been to Neocon in Chicago which was something I had always wanted to do, we had been to the gulf coast, we had an FET, and another loss, and I landed a large clinic project at work. My career seemed to be going so well, and our personal lives were good, minus the losses. We got the bloodwork back that I did before the holidays. I had a blood clotting disorder called MTHFR. Hmm...interesting! The doctor said he saw this a lot with reoccurring miscarriages, and if we did the procedures again, he would recommend being on heparin. And so we then did our little surgery, to come to find out I had a septum in my uterus, which the doctor removed. Another thing was that the embryo may have attached to the septum, which doesn't have any blood flow. So we had 2 things we had found out in less than a month and after a year of heart ache. I hate that we couldn't have found this sooner, but sometimes you try to do the least invasive thing before you go in and do more. Its a conservative approach and I get it.
We had found some potential culprits, but I wasn't ready to jump back into the fertility pool just yet. I needed to take some time. My husband agreed, so I focused on work an the house for a couple of months. End of March, we started talking about it again. We wanted a family, we wanted a baby, it was looming. I got my nerve back up quicker than I thought. So I called the doctor and scheduled an end of May procedure.
