Help Jessica with her infertility journey- IVFBaby

Hello my name is Jessica I am 32 years old and have been married for 8 years now. After getting married in 2012 my husband wanted for us to start a family and as we began TTC and not having any results I decided to see my OBGYN and check why I was not getting pregnant. After some exams, I was diagnosed with PCOS and Hypothyroidism. This was the answer to many of the symptoms I was having and the doctor at that time said "it will be nearly impossible for you to have children" that was so heartbreaking to hear knowing my husband desired a big family. I decided to change doctors and get second opinion. I started seeing a reproductive endocrinologist and he gave me more hope that someday I would be pregnant. I was started on fertility oral meds, shots etc for months without any success. That was taking a toll on us financially, physically and emotionally but I refused to give up. Months later, my doctor decided that my last resort was IVF. After my husband and I decided to take the risk and get a loan we went for it despite some obstacles. After 2 transfers one embryo finally stuck and is my miracle IVF baby  that fought through some pregnancy complications ❤

Fast forward 4 years to today, I am writting my story to ask for your help! Last year I had an appointment with my OBGYN  because I had concerns about some PCOS symptoms that were kicking my butt. After a biopsy of my uterus was done I was told that I have endometrial hyperplasia that is the result of PCOS. A few weeks ago, I went for a follow up making almost a year later and after another biopsy the results were the same.  

Due to COVID-19 I went to the appointment by myself. At this point, I ask the doctor what's next for me or what medication do I need. I was seeking a plan of action and what came next I was not expecting She nicely explained what would happen if my condition got worse. There is the probability that it turns into cancer and she suggested that for me to not worry about that what would happen is they take out my uterus. When she said that I felt like I went into a shock because I was not absorbing anything else she said after that She then asked if I was planning on having children and I told her that I wanted to try again and start with fertility treatment but that it was complicated due to my current situation. She was firm with me and said that if I wanted to have children that I'd need to start ASAP because its becoming harder and riskier for me to be pregnant given my current health conditions. I was diagnosed with a heart condition last year along with high blood pressure and pre-diabetes. I try very hard to stay strong for my family that need me but I must admit I feel broken inside. I am afraid of my body not responding to the fertility treatment and for me to get the endometrial cancer crushing mine and my husband's desire for another miracle  

I just realized I've skipped a really important part of my life and reason for why I need your help to grow my family. At the age of 2 my son was diagnosed with Autism and things got complicated to where I couldn't keep working and became a stay at home mom to care for him as no daycare where I inquired really welcomed us as soon as I said his diagnosis and mentioned that he is completely non-verbal etc. My husband has been pulling through but our finances cannot stretch out to cover another IVF treatment. I have applied for credit but sadly its not enough I am trying to stay positive and hopeful that my wish to give my son a sibling will come true. The past few years have been rough but we are not ready to give up!!

If you can help monetarily, we will be eternally grateful. We know this is a troublesome time for many, so if you’re only able to contribute your thoughts, prayers and share, we will be unbelievably thankful for those, too.

With love,
Jessica, Omar and Josh
