This is my first post introducing myself after a week or so of lurking after being directed to the ivillage community from a counsellor at my work.

I am 29 years old and have been TTC #1 since August 2009. I have not had much luck in my conception adventure. My husband and I have been through preliminary tests, I went through cycle monitoring to confirm ovulation, I had a saline sonogram and an HSG which showed no problems or blockages. My husbands count and mobility is fine. We have an appointment with him next week for the "next steps" as he wanted me to come back 3 months after the HSG, which is where we are at right now. I am guessing the next steps includes the beginning of fertility drugs.

My biggest challenge has been that I seem to be surrounded by pregnancy announcements and growing baby bumps. All my friends that got married after me are pregnant and pretty much all due within 2 months of eachother. As you can imagine my Christmas holidays were filled with a lot of pregnancy announcements. I currently know 6 people due between May and July of this year.
