One of the most difficult things with infertility is that your hopes go up & then get dashed time & time again . When I met with an obgyn after a year of trying & not getting pregnant, they were convinced I could get pregnant taking Clomid. That didn't work & then I went to a specialist who told me I had great chances of getting pregnant on Femara. Didn't happen. Then I had an uncomfortable test done where they found my fallopian tubes were both completely blocked. I had a surgery that had a 30% chance of working & it worked, they were able to successfully unblock both tubes! We were so excited & I cried tears of happiness thinking this meant we would now be able to get pregnant. We had 3 chances of getting pregnant through IUI & each time we got our hopes up & dreamed of getting a positive pregnancy test. Each time, I had some of the hardest, saddest days of my life. Now we are in the stages of saving up for IVF & I am so scared about the many, many more shots, blood draws, & mostly about getting my hopes up again & wondering how much of this we can handle.
