Hi all - my name is Brandy. I've been scrolling through the board, reading and wondering if I should post on here... now here I am! :smileyhappy:

I'm 30 years old. I had one natural pregnancy at age 19 which ended in miscarriage. It wasn't long after that I met my husband who is now 47 years old and had a vasectomy at 30 (he had 4 children prior to his vasectomy).

Hi Brandy,

Welcome to the board! You came to the right place for support throughout your journey...The ladies here are wonderful, always willing to lend a listening ear or words of wisdom and advice.

It is great that your doctor has expressed such confidence in your cycle. Unlike you, I am the poster child for female infertility, and to hear my RE (Reproductive Endocrinologist) talk about how confident he was that our first cycle would work, definitely made me feel so positive about the whole thing. And it worked!! So, hang on to those words of positivity from your doc...Remember them even when you are feeling your most anxious or scared!

As far as abbreviations and acronyms, you will find a great list that I pulled from the Infertility Support board at the link below:

Hope this list helps!

Good luck with your cycle! I truly hope that it brings you wonderful results!

Kelly :)
