I have just discovered this site by accident, whilst searching for some info on conception.
I don't log in all too often, but I do want to share my story with you all and hope (well ok, bad choice of words), that there are other women out there who can offer me some advice/hope/words of wisdom.
I am a stay at home mum to my two cherubs. My son is 5 1/2, my daughter almost 4 years old. In April of last year, after only a few months of trying we conceived our third child, but sadly at two months gestation, I discovered I had an ectopic pregnancy, which resulted in the loss of my left fallopian tube.
I have been trying ever since, but with no success. I have even gone so far as to use fertility herbs, but so far no luck.
My gyno told me that there shouldn't be any problems, as I conceived all three babies within 2 months, and having one less tube doesn't really make a huge difference. I trust his advice, after all he is the head of the IVF clinic!!!! But, I can't help feeling sad, disillusioned and fearful about whether it will ever happen again. I get told by my herbalist that they have had many women come in with one tube, and walk out (so to speak) pregnant with no medical assistance.
Are you one of these women? Can you offer me some hope? I'd dearly love to hear from you!!! Also, I feel quite dry and don't seem to have any fertile mucus, I was checked out and everything seems fine. Can I still fall pregnant?
I am also still producing some quantities of breast milk from my right boob after 2 years of breastfeeding my daughter, which was also two years ago!!!! I am told this shouldn't make too much difference, anyway, I actually conceived B3 (baby 3) in this same 'condition'. What are your thoughts/ personal experiences?
I hope I'm not waffling on too much, but damn it feels good to let it all out!!!!
Love and baby daze to you all,
