Re-Intro WTT after M/C

Hi Everyone,

I know many of you know me because I have been a member of this board for a long time. But I mostly hang out in the grad threads and since we are "officially waiting" this cycle I thought I would post a reintroduction.

My WTT/TTC, and IV history is as follows:

Me and DH first started TTCing in the spring of 2007. However, it wasn't really for the right reasons--I was depressed and just wanted a baby so that I could be a SAHM, escape having a career, and not deal with my life and myself.

So after four cycles of TTCing I realized this and we decided to WTT until the Spring of 2008. In Nov or Dec of 2007, I discovered ivillage. I first posted on TTCYFC, and then discovered WTT. I have been posting here ever since!

We started TTCing again in April 2008 and have been at it, unfortunately, since then. Since then I have mostly posted in the grad threads, which is why I thought of doing a re-intro in the first place.

We started IF testing with my Ob/Gyn in May or June 2008. He did a SA on DH, I had BW done, and an HCG.

I had a chem PGcy in July 2008.

After a while of trying to pursue more testing, I became extremely frustrated. My Ob/Gyn's office was not set up to help me, and I constantly felt like I knew more about IF stuff than my doctor! Which was very frustrating.

So for a few months, we took a break from "trying harder", and then we started seeing an RE in Feb 2009. He has been great and really set my mind at ease. He has done a million tests, BW, and I had a Lap in April. I was diagnosed with asymptomatic PCOS and Endo.

I started taking Metformin in June and we got our BFP that very first cycle on Meds. I was overjoyed--it was our 19th cycle trying and I was SOOO ready to be done with TTCing. Unfortunately, a week and a half ago (6 weeks PG) I was diagnosed with a blighted ovum. I had a D+C on Wednesday.

So this VERY VERY long story ends with the fact that we have to wait one cycle before we start TTCing again. The doctor wants us to wait 2 cycles but I just cannot deal with this taking any longer. I want to be PG again NOW and I feel like waiting one cycle is a good compromise.

So for those that didn't know me before, hello and GL with your wait!

Your daughter is beautiful, and great name! ;-)

Just so you know, you don't *have* to wean your daughter before TTCing. I know some people like to "get their bodies back" before TTCing, but if you want to TTC but aren't ready to wean it isn't necessary. IV actually has a great TTCing and BFing board if you want to check it out. There are lots of tricks to getting your fertility back if you are ready to TTC but it hasn't returned already. Just so you know!

Thanks for the support, too. :-)

Thanks Katie. I feel pretty hopeful that we will go on to have a healthy PGcy. I also feel like it will happen quickly--I sure hope I am right!

I'm so happy to hear that everything has worked out for your sister. You must be excited to be an aunt *again*, hehe!

Gotcha. Your LO is still pretty young, so it probably makes sense to wait awhile anyway.

Adrienne - I am sad for the reasons that you are back in the WTT mode, but you have support with all of us.

I hope that you get your sticky bean real soon as you and James deserve it!!
