So I typed out this LOOOOOONG post last night with our whole story and then it just went away... errr hate when that happens. So now I am going to just sum it up in a short post, haha.

I'm Sarah, 28. My DH is Jack 28. We have a DD Makenzie 10, DS Justin 8, and DS Nathan 5. We are TTC #4. We have been TTC for 19 months now, since DH came home from a year long deployment to Iraq in Aug 09.

We have conceived 4 times SINCE then (we lost 2 between our boys, first one at about 8 weeks and the second days before turning 15 weeks.) while having serious fertility issues and being put on clomid. 50 MGs. The first one I was about 9w2d and went in for a dating U/S no heartbeat, baby measured 8w5d. The second one I carried to 11 weeks. @ 10w6d I started spotting. Went to the Dr the next morning because it picked up to a heavy spotting/light flow. No heartbeat. Baby measured 8w6d. Come to find out, I have thyroid issues most likely caused by it running in my family and the IUD, mirena I had placed for 3 years. (If you want to know more about that, just ask. :)... ) I conceived the first cycle after the 2nd loss but it was a chemical. I got a BFP the next day was BFN and then AF showed the next day. Last cycle I conceived again. BFP 10DPO, BFP 11DPO, BFN 12DPO, AF 13DPO. I'm sure this was caused by the clomid thinning my lining.

I am on CD8 today and on an all natural cycle, NO CLOMID... YAY!!! I did 6 cycles of clomid and I'm so happy to be done with it. I have been on treatment for my thyroid for 4 months now and pretty confidant that I will ovulate again on my own. I did ovulate on my own 10 days after starting the treatment so I don't see why I wouldn't now. I feel very confident about this cycle. I hope we get it :)

I look forward to getting to know all of the newbie TTCers and catching up with everyone that I know that has been here for a while :) Sending loads and loads of baby dust to everyone!! Hopefully we all get our BFPs and sticky babies SOON!!! <3

YAY for au naturel :) I agree, lets get off this board ASAP. As much as I have loved the support for the last 19 months, I'm ready to move on and come back just to support others, not because I need it.
