Journey to Baby Wallace
My husband and I have been highschool sweethearts that tried to do things the "right" way. We graduated, got married and thought we were on the right track to completing our family. In August of 2015 we suffered a miscarriage which shook our world before getting the diagnosis of endometriosis for me in 2016.
The doctor never imagined the extent of damage that my endometriosis had caused until my surgery in November of 2016.
I would have never imagined that when I awoke the next day that my doctor would tell me that the endometriosis caused my bowel to be pinned down and the damage was so severe that it caused my right ovary and fallopian tube to be required to be removed.
The news sent me into a slight depression at the thought of my chances of becoming a mother being cut in half.
We are now six months post surgery and recently met with a fertility doctor who states that my only option is in vitro fertilization due to the severity of my case. This was one of the hardest things that I have had to consider but I am just asking for any help or support in helping my husband and I cover the cost of treatment. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers even if you are not in a position to support financially. We love and appreciate you all.
I want to first continue to thank everyone for all of their thoughts and prayers. On Monday we went back to our fertility doctor who is ready to move forward. I will be scheduling my hysteroscopy and we have been approved to do IVF Orientation following my procedure. The party is about to get started please keep us in your prayers and continue to share our story. Love you all
I pray that this message meets everyone in good spirits. I wanted to update everyone on where we are and what the plan is moving forward. I was experiencing some pain and decided to contact my OBGYN who has advised that the pain is coming from the depot shot wearing off and having no coverage or control for my endometriosis. She has advised me to contact my fertility doctor and attempt to aggressively move forward on this journey to control my symptoms with hormones and prepare for our baby. I have left a message for the doctor and will keep everyone updated as I have to have an ultrasound and hysteroscopy before we move forward. I just want you all to know we appreciate your continued love, prayers and support. #JourneyToBabyWallace
