Hi all

My name is Josee. I have a son who will be 3 on Dec. 6th and a wonderful dh. We have been TTC for over a year. I have been pg twice in my life (that I know of) once was a miscarriage and once with my wonderful son (who was born at 33 weeks, and I had tons of pg complications).

Anyways, I have started charting this cycle as per my dr. instructions. He wants me to do this for 2-3 cycles and then see him again if I am not pg by that time. He will send me to a specialist and we may talk Clomid. I have always had 35-60 day cycles (most are in the 50 day range), so we need to look at that. My previous two pg - I conceived within a few cycles, so the long cycles didnt seem to be a problem at that time. So who know what is wrong now.

I wanted to have my two kids before 33 or 34. Guess that wont happen now :(

Oh well. Look forward to getting to know you all and good luck to everyone on TTC

Hello, and welcome!

I do understand how you are feeling. TTC can be an emotional rollercoaster. Just so you know, you can count on us for support through your journey.

I have 1 ds who will be 2 in Dec. I have also been pg twice, one ended in m/c. I also wanted to have 2 children before the age of 30 - 35. So, we have a lot in common!

I turned 35 last week and it was hard to celebrate a birthday when all I wanted was to be pg. But, my dh and I are still going to ttc for a bit longer. We have been ttc since I had my ds. We are currently tttc with 50 mg of clomid with IUI. This month is our 5th attempt.

I hope your ttc journey will end soon, and you will have a BFP very soon! Good luck this month, and keep us posted on how you are doing.

Hi Josee,
Welcome to the board.

I'm Sheila. I have one DD who just turned 2. My DH and I have been TTC for 11 cycles now - I have short cycles, 25 days. I'm 37. I just saw a RE and was diagnosed with high FSH. Once we get insurance approval, we're going to go through with injectables and IUI.

I too am surprised that your doctor wants you to wait three months/cycles, but maybe it's for insurance purposes. You may want to check with your insurance co as well.

Have you used That's a great resource and tool to chart your temps.
