Introducing myself

I'm a frequent reader but infrequent poster. I decided that I needed to introduce myself. I'm Stephanie, mommy to two wonderful boys, Matthew (5 yrs old) and Nathan (3 years old). I'm hoping to add one more to my gang and would be super excited if it was a girl! I'm outnumbered by men in my house! LOL

I struggled to get pregnant with my first son for about 18 months and with the help of an RE during the last 6 months. Had an HSG and did rounds of clomids. Knew to go directly to the RE when I was ready to TTC #2. Did Femara and had an IUI to get pregnant with him. Now we've been TTC for awhile again (and not trying to prevent for 2.5 years) and I've got an appt with my RE in January. I was tormented this month as I had numerous unusual symptoms with AF not due (but somewhat irregular) until Jan 2 but have had some spotting all day today. Every month that I get AF, I'm so frustrated. I wish my full blown AF would just start instead of dealing with this spotting all day.

Hi Stephanie,

Welcome out of lurkdom!! Sorry to hear about your difficulties TTC. So happy to hear you are about to be in the care of an RE, since that has worked so well for you in the past! I look forward to getting to know you better.

All the best,

Susie - Mom to Jessie

Thanks for the welcome wishes girls. I've been a long time member of Ivillage (cl of my 2005 Jan peanut gallery) but I'm happy to be here with you ladies on this TTC journey again. My AF eventually showed so I'm seing my RE on Jan 10th. I'm excited to see what his plans this time include!
