Pregnancy #1 edd 2004 (m/c)
Pregnancy #2 edd 2005 (m/c)
Pregnancy #3 edd 2007 (m/c)
June 2003 showed right possibly closed left wide open
HSG Dec 2005
both tubes wide open!
unfortunately this pregnancy is
ending in a miscarriage as well, we are heart broken, but will
survive we have our lil girl to keep us focused.
We welcomed our adopted daughter
into our lives on July 15, 2006, her name is Victoria Ann. She is
now 7 months old and the light of our lives. She was born on my 17
yr olds Birthday. When we decided to adopt we also knew we were
leaving it in gods hands should we conceive again, after suffering 2
miscarriages in the first 2 years after my reversal, and nothing
since Dec 2004 i really felt I was getting to old to conceive I am
42, and came to terms with that. We had Victoria and she became our
lives, my 2 older daughters love her to death also. Well here it is
4 years after my reversal and I just got a positive pregnancy test
today, we r VERY happy though leery after the miscarriages, we r
going to take it one day at a time and pray for a healthy pregnancy.
For those of u who haven't conceived yet please don't give up. The
best thing i EVER did was go to Mexico and have my reversal.
My husband and i have just found
out that we have been picked by a birth mother to be the adoptive
parents of her newborn baby girl, she is due July 24,2006. It will
be a private adoption. It had to be fate that lead me to her, we
actually met in a mall in my town. I will be there for the
birth so we are anxiously awaiting her entry into the world. she is
truly a blessing to us. we thank god everyday. As far as still
trying to conceive we are leaving it it gods hands, I truly believe
he will not give me more than I can handle.
I didn't realize I had not updated
my story so here goes. Unfortunately I had a another miscarriage in
Dec 2005. My progesterone levels were a little on the low side so
they put me on a supplement however i had a bad reaction to it and
had to discontinue taking it causing my levels to lower again they
think this may have caused me to miscarry.
Because of my history of 2
miscarriages they wanted to run a bunch of tests I agreed,
EVERYTHING turned out fine, thru these tests my tubes were looked at
in different ways and they told me the Dr that did my reversal was
VERY GOOD both tubes were wide open and looked GREAT!
I have not conceived again yet but
I figure my age of 41 has something to do with it.
Anyways I wanted to give u an
update as to where I am on my journey, and my Drs findings. Keep
Faith I intend to
I had my TR in Feb 2003, 21 months ago, I will be 40 next month. I
had an HSG in June 2003 right closed most likely, but left wide
open. Had a miscarriage in March 2004 at @ 5 weeks. Anyway had
a hunch this month so I tested this morning got a light 2nd line but
definitely there. By the way, with my miscarriage it never showed up
on HPT, HCG only got to 11. So I really feel this is a keeper,
please pray for me that it is in the right place and it stays snug
Update March 2004
Well, I am sorry to say that I am having a miscarriage. The Dr did
call me yesterday and told me this would probably happen cause the
numbers were too low, but we were holding out hope. He said there
was something wrong with the baby to cause the numbers to be so low,
that maybe it didn't divide right or was just to immature. I was
about 4 weeks pregnant. But, on the bright side I now know I can get
pregnant, so we'll get through this and move on. Kim
Update - February 2004
Today I went and had a blood test done. I AM PREGNANT!!!!!
February was 1 year since my reversal. I know if God forbid, I lose
this baby I will be heart broken, but.....on the other hand I now
KNOW for certain my reversal was a success. Please keep me in
your prayers, Kim
We arrived back home last night, everything went great! Here is my
story for those of u that would like to know.
We (buddied with Tammy T) flew into Harlingen late Thurs. afternoon
and drove to McAllen to meet up with some friends of Tammy's (so
glad we did that). Stopped at Wal-Mart and got munchies and water (a
must), we went out to dinner at a place called Logan's Roadhouse,
then followed her friend across the border. Levy was called to the
hospital and it was decided Tammy was going to go to surgery that
night. They started prepping her and came and got me and said they
wanted to do both that night!
I got to the operating room about 10:30-11:00 (and back out around
12:30). Dr. Moreno put the sleepy juice and epidural in, and I felt
NOTHING. Next thing I remember was getting back to my room. But
hubby said I talked to him during surgery. Hubby said everything was
kept VERY sterile during surgery. The hardest part I had was at
about 5:30 in the morning, I had a panic attack (first one ever) I
didn't know I could turn on my side with the epi in , and I was
going crazy on my back. It hurt a lot just laying there. Levy came
in and helped me turn and I went back to sleep.
Dr. Perez came in about 8 or so to check on me, very sweet man :)
Any time I needed something and they couldn't understand me, they
got someone who did. The people down there are wonderful, and it was
very clean. We were discharged about 24 hours after arriving. We got
to meet 2 other couples who came in on Friday.
I would do it again in a heart beat! My lengths are right 6-7 left
7-8, I had some adhesions, from my lap a couple of years ago. My
total cost was $1900. My hubby really enjoyed seeing the surgery and
Dr. Perez let him get right up there and look at everything. After
driving there hubby was very nervous about going thru with it,
however I said I came all this way, I am going to do it! The first
thing i saw when they had me get on the operating table was a cross
with Jesus on it, and I just focused on it and knew things would be
We got a hotel Friday night ( Ramada Limited in Harlingen) and took
it easy, on Sat. We flew back out then for home Sun. morning. Spent
the day on planes, not too bad but was a little bumpy. I am sore but
not in a lot of pain unless I overdo it, which I have a little at
