Hi ladies!


I just want you all to know that I am following you every step of the way and that I really, really root you all on. I try not to post too much because I feel crushed when someone has a perfect chart and still doesn't get the BFP, and I feel like I make it worse if I say something positive during the cycle but I just want you all to know that I can't wait for you to get your BFPs and that I am sure it will happen! And that I am sad that this journey can be so incredibly difficult for some and so easy for others. I know I can't possibly understand but I do really feel for you all.


((((((((((((((((((((((((Baby Dust)))))))))))))))))))))))))

I'm on the fence about whether to go back on the front page or not. Part of me wants to, now that we have more of a plan in place. Another part of me wants to hold back. Probably the hurt of seeing so many people come and go and move on while I'm stagnant. Although, not being the only azoospermia diagnosis pushes me towards it being okay to be all in. I'm so indecisive-- help me decide!

Name/Age: Emmy/29

DH's name/Age: Brian/33 (this month)

TTC since: May 08 (on cycle 20)

What you're doing to TTC this cycle: try to finalize if using donor sperm is going to be ok with dh

Favorite Thanksgiving tradition: getting together with family

Plans for Thanksgiving this year: going to my mom's house to be with her and her sister and fam.

Name at least one thing you are thankful for: my wonderful husband. He keeps me strong and gets me through each day. I couldn't live without him.

Name/Age: Adrienne, 26

DH's name/Age: James, 31

TTC since: We first started in February 2007--but between breaks for various reasons this is our 22nd cycle.

What you're doing to TTC this cycle: Acupuncture, Metformin 2x a day, and trying to stay active and not have caffeine or much adderall (ADD Med).

Favorite Thanksgiving tradition: We go around the table and say what we are thankful for before we eat--I love that.

Plans for Thanksgiving this year: We'll be eating with DH's family--they are going through a rough patch and I promised Thanksgiving and Christmas to them this year. I don't mind Thanksgiving but it will be the first Christmas without my family and I know I will be in tears throughout the day--it is my fav and most special holiday. :::Sigh::: But I owe James because we have always spent MOST of Christmas (Eve and Morning) with my family before heading to his family's house for a Christmas day lunch/dinner. Sorry to go off about my Christmas--LOL! That wasn't even the questions!

Name at least one thing you are thankful for: Everything. I am so so grateful for my whole life--I have a wonderful husband, family (including in-laws), job, house, pets--I am really just so grateful.

Katie--I didn't know you were doing Clomid this cycle! Is this your first Clomid cycle? I feel like that really raises your chances a lot! GOOD LUCK!!

Emmy, I think you should come back on the front page--we are all struggling with something, and you're totally right, now there are quite a few people on dealing with azoospermia, and I feel like you are SUCH a wealth of information for all of us in so many ways.

In terms of people graduating--depressingly enough, our last successful "graduate" was Natalie in July, and before her, Ella in February . . . since it is, seeming, QUITE difficult to graduate from this thread, there aren't really "so many people moving on"--though I completely know what you mean, which is why this thread exists at all--there are definitely "so many people moving on" in the other TTCing thread--and it is hard for those of us who have been at this for a year or more. So we have our own little thread here, and I honestly think that you probably have as good of a chance to graduate in the next 6-9 months as many people here . . . (though I REALLY hope that things will start picking up a bit now that so many of us are aggressively pursuing IF treatments).

SO!! I think you should rejoin the front page. ;-)

Hey Adrienne-


Nope this was my third cycle of Clomid, first of Clomid 100mg.

Katie, I know what you mean about femara. Even though in many ways taking it is similar to clomid, using something off-label just doesn't feel right.

Emmy, you should rejoin the front page. This space is to give support for all of us and we want to support you to!

Name/Age: Missy, 30

DH's name/Age: DH, 31

TTC since: July 2008

What you're doing to TTC this cycle: nothing this cycle, going to see RE on Friday to see what we need to do to get started on IUI

Favorite Thanksgiving tradition: Cooking a nice meal in my kitchen and having my most loved ones come over and enjoy it

Plans for Thanksgiving this year: We are going to my dad's house

Name at least one thing you are thankful for: My DH. He is the best!
