Micro What????

As most of you know Jonny and I have been trying to get pregnant now for a LONG time. About four years to be exact. It's been an emotional rollarcoaster of doing lots of drugs, herbs, and praying!!! I have gone to numerous doctors now and am about fed up with it all at this point. I'm angry at the doctors for being stupid and angry at myself for caring so much. I am especially angry at my body for being such a massive failure! I hate that I get so jealous of anyone who is pregnant and would do anything to be able to get pregnant! I have heard EVERY thing that people say works...including standing on your head to get pregnant. I've tried it all. I am just done. I emotionally am drained.

So this past three almost four months I have been on birth control to get regular. I was told by about four different doctors I have PCOS which means I'm not ovulating. I know TMI!!! I also am taking something called Met Formin which makes me feel sick! Blah! The plan was to stop taking birth control in two weeks and start chlomed (for the millionth time) and try for three more months!! I was so excited! I really had faith this would work!

My Doctor then proceeded to tell me my prolactin levels were too high. I had an MRI last year and had to get another one this year. I just got the results yesterday. Apparently I have a microadenoma(Super tiny tumor)on my putuitary gland (Somewhere on my brain) which is why I haven't been able to get pregnant! Which means I just wasted all this time doing drugs that made me feel like crap that would have never worked! I was extremely upset yesterday but am now feeling a little hope. I am somewhat grateful to FINALLY know I need to go to a Encronologist and get this under control first! If anyone knows a good one please let me know. Here is my update for those who don't know. I am grateful to have so many supportive family and friends who have been here to let me cry with them. Trials happen to all of us for a reason and I am grateful to have the gospel in my life to help guide me. Sorry if I gave to much information...just needed to vent.

How NOT fun! This has nothing to do with your current situation, but there is a procedure called ZIFT??? I just heard of it on that Deliverd show on TLC. I guess its invitro but putting the embrio in your tube which has a better chance of pregnancy since thats the normal enviroment rather than the uterus instantly. N E who... Good luck with everything!
