Pregnant after two major myomectomies!

I am 33 y/o in a very stressful industry (BigLaw).  I put off getting pregnant and ended up with chronic fast-growing fibroids .  I thought I couldn't get pregnant with all of the scarring I had because of the surgeries.
Two years after my last myomectomy, and one year after my hysteroscopy to prep me up for intense IVF, I got pregnant on my third IVF round.  At the same time, my law firm promoted me to counsel.  2016 has been a roller coaster of a year, but now it looks like I will have a miracle baby in my arms by July 7th. I am so lucky!  
I am also scared beyond belief so I hope this community will help me manage my fears.  Thank you in advance!

Congrats!! Thanks for posting, I have a similar story. Kerp postphoning babies for career reasons and I now feel I am in a race against time. Had a hysteroscopy few weeks backs and history of cysts. Your story giving me hope that there is a miracle waiting down the road for me and I should keep going.

Congrats! Your story sounds a lot like mine. After 2 surgical procedures and 2 rounds of IVF, I got pregnant at 40. My pregnancy was mostly uneventful and my little one is now 5.5 months old and a bundle of joy! Enjoy your blessing and have no fear, that little one growing inside of you is a fighter and chosen just for you. Let yourself fully enjoy this part of your journey, you deserve it after everything you've been through. 😚
St:  Thank you, Tonya! It means so much to me to see others who have had children after that many surgeries. Most of my friends had no trouble getting pregnant so they don't understand how scared I feel about this.
