Greetings and Salutations :)

Hey everyone!

My husband and I just found out that we're expecting our first baby! I had joined and tried to post but after 2 years of trying I gave up. I was diagnosed with PCOS last year and I just blah.

Anyway I'm Crissy and my Hubby is Tony Smile

I had my first beta done on Thursday and it was HCG 141 and Progesterone 9. I am a little unsure about how far along I am since I wasn't planning anything so I'm thinking Dec 11 to Dec 13th or so. I have an U/S scheduled on the 25 and I started progesterone support for first trimester tonight! (crinone 8% gel yuck!) But whatever it takes for a healthy baby I'm on board!

Looking forward to getting to know everyone!

Congrats!!! TTC for so long can be really draining...it took us 2 yrs to conceive DS1 and now we've been TTC #2 for several months. I am so happy for you! HH9M! Biggrin

Congrats Crissy!!!! Yahoo HH9M!!

We're in the same boat as you (I kind of want off the boat though). We've been trying for 3 1/2 years now for our 1st. Sad

Once we get our BFP, I'll be on progesterone as well -- doc didn't say pills or gel but by the sounds of it, I'm hoping for pills ROFL

Thanks everyone! So far after one time the Crinone wasn't that bad (knocks on wood)

I was on Crinone 8% for a week (samples from the doc until the pharmacy could get it in), but when my Rx came in, it was over $200 for a 15 day supply!!!!!! There's just no way...so I called my doc and a local compounding pharmacy made me progesterone suppositories instead....I like 'em better-no gross globby discharge the next day. We're doing that the first trimester too. But I'm with you...whatever I have to do to get this little one here!
