Hi and welcome Smile I'm so sorry it hasn't happened for you yet. :bigarmhug: Please know that you are not alone. There are many others here who have been trying a long time with no success and we'll be here to support you. We've personally been ttc #2 for over 3 yrs now. The only advice I have is to keep trying, and maybe try charting and/or ovulation predictor kits if you haven't already.

Welcome to the board and our TTC 2+ years coffeehouse. I'm bringing you iced vanilla lattes and blueberry muffins. :wavehello:

I'm assuming you have been to the doctor and everything checks out okay? Have you tried charting your basal body temperature (BBT) or ovulation predictor kits (OPK)? We are very lucky to have the resident expert, Mary (FLSunshineMom), on this board too and can answer any questions you may have about charting and OPK's.

So true that you are not alone.
We have been trying for over 2 and a half years with 5 miscarriages and no baby held in our arms yet.
We have faith that it will happen soon.

As amanda said..have you seen a doctor yet?
and have you been charting or using opks?
Or have you just been letting it happen?

Anything you want to ask please do.

Oh and amanda makes the best muffins..and Mary and her LO make the best Chocolate cake!!!

LOL Amanda, "resident expert." Too cute Biggrin I don't know how much of an expert I am, but I've been charting for over three years now so I've probably come across just about every kind of scenario you could think of. And I like how you called this a "coffeehouse." Smile

Children Mentioned


We JLIH for around 7 or 8 years...no baby. Everyone around me was having babies, planned and OOPS! I knew I had PCOS though. Once we got into all the testing we found out DH had low count and volume. So we tried it all. Clomid, injectables, IUI, timed BD, acupunture....heck anything you can name lol....finally moved to IVF and it took us 3 cycles, but we ended up with twin girls. It can happen. I wish you all the best!

Baby Dust and Luck to you Smile

Welcome! You have found a wonderful group of ladies Smile I second the ? wondering if you have had any medical testing, charting, etc. I am rounding the corner of the 6th year mark TTC have had many losses, ectopics, injectibles, clomid, etc. I hope your stay here is MUCH shorter than mine Smile
