Back after a slight break.
Sun, 02-10-2013 - 8:03pm

Some of you might remember me, I was here for probably 6 months but stopped coming a few months ago. I wanted to stop focusing so much on getting pregnant and being on here alot didnt help. we never stopped trying just needed a break. 

Im waiting for O on cycle #25 I think? I havent been to the doctor yet, wanting very badly to start the process. Due to money and no insurance I really cant (I have a pretty steady job but my BF is in between jobs, were doing ok right now but im scared to add another bill to our lives). I started using opks again, never seemed to have a problem ovulating. He did the Macra at home SA and if I read it all right he seems fine too. We both are taking Fertilaid and I am starting FertilCM again. Im 22 and hes 35 from Mississippi.

Welcome back! Did you see that socal77 finally got her BFP? She was about to try Clomid, but had success with Preseed and soft cups. I'm not sure if that will work for you, but just wanted to put the idea out there. It's cheaper than going to the doctor at least.

Welcome back to the board. It's been quite around here, it's nice to see some familiar faces. Melissa, just read your reply. Your excitement for me warms my heart :) I'll get my bfp again. We all will! I'm coming off this terrible AF from the chemical pregnancy, so I don't know when I'll O. I have insurance, but it wont cover any fertility testing or treatment. You'll find that doctors will cut you a break. Insurance covered office visits, so I only paid a copay (don't know what full price would be for you), and bloodwork was also covered, but I saw the full price - over $1000! Ouch, But my hsg was around $368 and the SA was only $85. Maybe you could start with the SA? When do you think you'll O? Brooke
