Dr. P called me this morning to give me the results of the MRI. They confirmed what he had already suspected from the HSG. I have a unicornuate uterus. Am completely devastated. Am emotionally drained after all the crying and fighting with my husband about how to proceed and the fact that we just don't have the money to do it yet.
My doctor recommended I contact an RE he knows in Connecticut who deals with uterine anomalies . Dr. P and my perinatologist both think that I should have further testing (the 3D ultrasound, the laporoscopy). And they both cautioned me that with this condition it becomes a matter of how much I can take. I have such high risk for 1st and 2nd trimester miscarriage. I will likely have many more. But one of the pregnancies could result in a 34/35 weeker being delivered via c-section.
I didn't call the RE today. I couldn't deal with it. Maybe tomorrow. Right now I'm trying to figure out how I can pay for this...whether in the end I'll adopt for a gestational surrogate or if I will adopt... The one thing that I know is that I can't keep getting pregnant in the hopes that maybe one day it won't end with me in a puddle of tears in the recovery room after a D&C.
You will all excuse me if I stay in my cave for a while.
