Trying for Baby #1 through IVF
Well - I keep on coming over to this part of pg.org - so I think it's finally time for me to start my own journal.
Introductions first - I'm 30, my DH is 32 and we have been married for over two years, TTC for 16 months. At first I kind of had to pressure my DH into starting to try - at least going off BCP. He wanted to be married for 2 years before we had a baby (HA. Looking back on that time now... how innocent we were).
I had been on BCP for a long time (over 10 years) so I figured it would take a bit to get it out of my system, so when we didn't get a BFP in the first few months, I wasn't that worried. After 6 months, I started using OPKs.... and then... after a year, I went to my yearly checkup and basically freaked out.
Health-wise, I'm in great shape. My periods have alway been regular, I exercise 5 - 6 times a week, but I am overwieght. So - since that this the only thing 'wrong' with me - I started blaming that. "I'm so fat I can't that is the reason". Anyway - my doctor did a bunch of bloodwrk and tests, and the truth comes out.
Unexplained Infertility. See, all that bloodwork went fine. DHs SA came back 'normal'. So, now - we are working with an RE. Last cycle was my first time with using Clomid, and we didn't have success, so this cycle we are doing clomid again, but this time with IUI and a trigger.
Let the fun begin!
