I don’t share much here about our infertility story. . . that’s somewhere else (somewhere anonymous), partially because I often feel like we don’t have a place in this infertility world (despite being very much infertile) since we together parent five children. Mostly, I don’t talk much about it here because this blog is about food, family, & celiac. But then, maybe I should talk about it more, since celiac could be why we still aren’t pregnant- 2 years later.
We are starting our last cycle for a while (as in medicated cycle, we will never quit trying). I’ll stop BCPs on Wednesday and start injections on CD3. My RE said on Sunday, “remind me again how you feel about twins or triplets?”. Bring it on Doc. Considering we’ve been unable to achieve and maintain pregnancy (previously I only struggled with achieving, maintaining went pretty well back then), I’m not holding out much hope for one bean, let alone a couple.
At this juncture, the amazing medical team we have has NO CLUE why we aren’t preggars. We’ve taken care of all the “issues”, I’m ovulating (multiple eggs each cyle), etc. . . and yet, still no sticky baby 24 months in.
Maybe I’ll post our TTC timeline as an extra page on here. . . but I’m not publicly sharing all the nitty gritty as that may prove embarrassing for members of this family.
