A List of Things Preventing Me From Getting Pregnant

Do you ever feel like every thing that could go wrong, is going wrong? Like the universe is working against you?

A list of things currently working against us becoming parents: PCOS, a uterus abnormality, low vitamin d, thyroid issues, low motility, and low morphology. The majority of these issues were just diagnosed in the last month. It has been an overwhelming few weeks, to say the least.

We are working with so many issues, I often wonder how we will ever make this work?

    Oof. That is a lot to handle, especially finding out all at once. I hope it works out for you soon!

    Girl, I’m right there with you on the laundry list of health issues. It actually pushed my IVF date further back, I’m still waiting for my cyst to go away. My head was spinning with so many health issues I didn’t know where to start. For your next appointment bring a good old pen and piece of paper and grill your doctor about each issue. Ask “What can we do about problem A? How can we elimate it as a problem or at least improve the situation if it’s something we must live with? What will you do as the doctor and what should we be doing as the patients? What about problem B, C, D?” Write everything down, especially if you are at the appointment by yourself. I’m so sorry you are dealing with all of this. Maybe the doctor has some simple suggestions. I thought my high blood pressure issues would ruin my chances of a healthy pregnancy. But my doc gave me a pregnancy safe bloodpressure pill (not pregnant yet) that not only got it down to mostly normal but now my killer migraines are gone too. Such a simple little fix, killed two birds with one stone. Maybe one or two of your issues could be easily treatable. Take care.

      Thank you so much for the advice! I am definitely taking a pen and paper next time! I tried typing it in my phone but I can’t type as fast as I can write! ❤️

    Yes it certainly can be overwhelming! Just try and focus on what you can control, and let your doctors (and your faith) control the rest!

    So sorry you’re having difficulty getting pregnant. I pray you are coming to the end of your infertility journey and soon you will be on your way to motherhood. I know the wait for baby can be draining on a marriage as well, the best advice I can give is to lean on each other during this time and as hard as it is try to enjoy the time just the two of you. Hope it all works out for you and at the perfect time.

    I feel for you too. We have low everything sperm wise and I have PCOS and a blocked tube too. It sure is overwhelming, hope that you are slowly coming to terms with it all?

    I’m late here but I have the opposite problem. Unexplained infertility which equals nothing to “fix.” Drives me insane but I can see why you would feel that too. Hang in there! We will get our babies!

    Sounds too familiar. Feels like nothing will ever go right. But with the right support youll get through it
