Another long-time member brought the idea for this thread up and I really think it's a good one.
Until I experienced my own loss(es), I wasn't aware of how truly difficult it was to get and/or stay pregnant. So many of my real life friends have multiple kids and most were unplanned that I always thought getting pregnant was natural and easy. I've shared my story in various other threads, so I won't bore you all with the details here again, but thought it might be beneificial to members to have a place to talk about their loss or difficulties in either getting pregnant or maintaining that pregnancy.
Unfortunately, it's not something that many people talk about, but it's nothing shameful and it's actually very common. So post here if you need to vent or need support regarding your loss/difficulty. Or even to offer support to those of us that require it.
To give a very short-versioned background, I experienced my first loss of an accidental pregnancy in June 2009 due to an ectopic pregnancy in my left fallopian tube. This resulted in the loss of that tube and a 50% decrease in my fertility. After many fertility treatments and taking a medical break, we got a second surprise BFP in November 2010. This also resulted in an ectopic pregnancy. I am finally in my 5th month of my third pregnancy and everything is going great. It's been a very long and tough road though.
