Adrienne & James - TTC #1
Kathleen is 2 years old
Happliy married to Geoff for the past five years
Expecting baby #2 in June 2013!
Hi ladies! Just coming over to check in. I'm still not in the game this month, but will be in November!!
Just saw my RE today and ummm, I have a new diagnosis - PCOS. My doc seemed very calm and nonchalant about the whole thing. She said it's why I have oily skin and occasional acne, why I have problems losing weight, and the irregular cycles. She said since I've already responded well to Clomid, that it shouldn't play too much a part in me conceiving using IUI.
Today is CD16 of my current cycle. I will have CD3 b/w done and then an HSG (yuck!!). I will go in for a follow-up and "regrouping" appointment in 4 weeks (from today!). We will then proceed with the IUI in the following cycle (that cycle *should* start around Nov-8).
I will take 50mg of Clomid (really wish she would have prescribed 100, but she *is* the doc), and then they'll do an U/S on day 12/13 and then trigger (I get to join that club too!). It's kinda funny, I already have all the prescriptions for it all. I couldn't believe it when she handed it all to me. I need to find a really safe place for all of it so I don't lose it in the next 6 weeks.
Wow... only 6 weeks and we will finally have a REAL chance of me getting PG!!!!
I hope to see some sticky beans from this board this month!
Adrienne, just popping in to say I had a drream last night where I looked at the boards and you were PG again, so super good luck for you this cycle!
Alison, I'm glad things get moving for you, I'm following you on your blog so I've been keeping my fingers crossed for you!
Thanks Joelle for my sweet siggy!
Alison, that is fantastic. Things are happening so quickly. A new diagnosis always sux, but it seems you guys are moving forward and that is good.
Ruth, I know what you mean how this whole process reminds you that you don't have control over your life.
Continuing the conversation about why we are so quiet at times here, I think at some point IF just becomes another part of life. When I first started TTC, it took over my life and I thought of so many things in terms of TTC. Obviously you can't go on like that forever and no matter how much I wish things were different, reality has told me that I can't go on and truly expect each cycle to end with a BFP or plan everything I do around the idea that I may have a baby in 9 months. So the day to day TTC is more in the background of my thoughts now and so I don't feel the need to come here and write down every little thing. But it is always there and of course I think of you girls and want to continue to know what is going on with everyone.
I just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Friday and a wonderful weekend!
WARNING: BIG whine coming up....
Well what I thought was going to turn into being a good day yesterday went bust rather quickly.
Good morning all! Just wanted to let you know that I am back. With AF's arrival yesterday, we are moving onto a new cycle and are TTC again. I am supposed to have a hysteroscopy next week to follow-up from the surgery. My mom might be coming for a visit, so I'm not sure if I will be able to get it done.
DH has decided that we should try for the IUI next cycle. He read somewhere that summer babies are smarter, so he's all excited. I'm just happy to be moving forward after these past couple months of waiting again.
I will catch up with personals when I'm not posting from my phone.
