Trying To Conceive After Vascetomy Reversal

My husband reversed his vasectomy in April and we are trying to conceive our third child. I never in a million years have felt the helplessness of wanting something so bad before in my life. Month after month we wait and test and visit the doctor which usually ends in tears. I did full medical tests before the reversal to ensure my health and everything was great, but as soon as we started trying my health has been declining. I ended up with kidney stones and irregular periods. I know something is wrong with me I can feel it. We put all of our savings monetary and emotionally into this dream/hope of a new addition, so it not working is killing me. If I hear one more person tell me to “stop trying” because that’s when it happens I will scream!! The one thing I love the most in life is being a mom and I yearn for that feeling one more time. My heart goes out to all women who have never been able to conceive a child and I am sincerely grateful for the two amazing children I do have. I know people might not think my pain is somehow not equal but let me tell you I can totally understand what you’re going through. Every baby commercial, every magazine covers, every ungrateful parent, every crying baby hurts the same! I don’t know if anyone has seen that EPT commercial where all you see is the test and the woman’s voice saying “be positive”…that one hurts the most because I have been there so many times, except it always ends with a negative test. I am a huge believer and GOD and his plans so I am going to stay hopeful even if it’s the hardest thing to do!
