I started writing up a big post about the more recent developments in my journey through recurrent pregnancy loss. I still need to finish it up, but in the meantime, he’s a quick update:
- In August I had a hysteroscopic myomectomy done in Denver. The idea was to hopefully remove a fibroid that was bulging into my uterus. Instead of a fibroid, the surgeon found an adenomyoma located directly above my cesarean scar. I have to review my records from my 1 successful pregnancy to determine whether or not the fibroid that was present during that pregnancy changed into this adenomyoma. Otherwise, it is likely a lovely by-product of the 2004 cesarean section that was performed on me and my daughter.
- I have a substantial progesterone deficiency. Progesterone levels should not drop below 8-10 in 2nd luteal phase draw, and mine dropped to 3. I will have to have HCG shots during the luteal phase and progesterone shots during the first trimester to support the corpus luteum and developing baby. It makes me INSANE that the last OB I asked to test my progesterone outright refused. I lost that baby, obviously.
- I have to wait until November to have an ultrasound performed to let me know if my uterus and endometrium have repaired from the surgery. Then we can talk about ttc.
That’s my nutshell.
