We knew before trying to get pregnant that we had some obstacles to overcome. I was diagnosed with a septate uterus and was told from a specialist that it was unlikely I would ever carry a baby to full term. There was no certainty, so we had to just go for it and see what happened.
We had the option to go for the less expensive, less complicated, and less promising, but were advised to go for the gusto because I had no eggs. In addition, my husband’s sperm count was inconsistent which added our potential problems conceiving. So we did it! We started the process for IVF with donor egg, and we never looked back.
Unwanted, unsolicited advice is something that we have all fallen victim to at some point in our lives. It is something that we all get from time to time, and it often comes during periods of time when we are experiencing life-changing events.
Whether you know you want to get pregnant at some point or are actually starting to try, it’s normal to be a little worried about the whole thing. After all, we all know someone who has struggled to conceive. But if it’s in your family history, could you also have trouble getting pregnant?
