Tammy's Success Story

Well my story with ashermans is kind of long.  My husband & I started trying in 11/95. I had a miscarriage at 8 weeks, after hearing the heartbeat.  We then went into another pregnancy & at 24 weeks 7/96 I lost my son.  Then we tried again & I had another miscarriage at 6wks 4/97.  I could not give up on my dream so once again we tried & I lost my daughter at 19wks 12/97 due to incompetent cervix, two weeks later I had a emergency D&C because part of the placenta was left. Then we had another miscarriage at 6wks 12/98 with a D&C then another D&C because part of the placenta was stuck.  That is how we think my ashermans developed was the 4 D&C's.  

In April 1999 I was diagnosed with the ashermans as being severe.  My only hope was the surgery, a hysteroscopy.  I was told that one surgery may not be enough.  I was also told that the scar tissue could come back & that if the surgery was successful then I could have complications during delivery of a child like bleed to death. 

My surgery was successful & opened the cavity very well.  The doctors were very impressed at how well it went.  I was then given some hope that we can achieve our dream & have a child.  I was very determined & so we did try again.  Since I also have incompetent cervix when I got pregnant I had to have a cerclage at 12wks & bi-weekly visits with my peri.  I ended up making it to 39wks & I had my doctor induce me because I was getting anxious & wanted to be monitored because of all my complications.  I had a son named Noah 8/00.  I also had slight problems with the delivery & my placenta.  But having the doctors aware made things pretty safe.  
I just recently had another healthy boy 2/02 named Nathan.  I now feel like my family is complete. I never thought that I would be where I am today.  It has been a hard rode, through all the pain, struggles, surgeries, & having to have buried 2 babies before I was 25yrs old was a lot to take. I never gave up on my dream & that is what gave me the strength to go on.  I hope I can give you all a little bit of encouragement that it can happen. Dreams & miracles do happen.  Keep up your strength & hopes. I will keep you all in my thoughts.
