back on the TTC train ~ our 1 year forced break is over!

Hello ladies!

I see there are alot of new faces, for those I have not met before I extend a warm greeting - I truly hope that your miracle comes to you soon!
For those of you that i've met, I am sorry that you're here and you are in my prayers to have your miracle arrive .... I must admit that part of me is glad that you are here though as then I have old friends to talk with as our journey starts again.

Jan 1 was our anniversary .... it's been a long journey for us but I guess without trials and struggles we would never know how to cope with loss and still have hope and love in our hearts, it is part of what makes us human and for that I am thankful. Without this long journey I would not have been able to get to know alot of people here, nor would I have had the chance to share knowledge that I`ve obtained and shared with new friends for their journey.

As noted in the title block - our forced 1 year break has been offically broken today by my doctor with a baseline and a thumbs up to start Puregon Injections again. We were put on a forced break for a year to heal, emotionally (and physically for me) after our last miscarriage (our 5th one) .... we are filled with hope that things will work and we will be blessed with a successful pregnancy and a healthy baby soon.

We have our file put on hold for adoption at this time as we are in the midst of moving from our current house and seeing if we are moving to another existing house or if we are going to build a new house (we`re leaning towards building which would mean that for the summer we`re going to be living in our holiday trailer) -- we are unable to have the home inspection done to meet the last of our requirements before submitting our profile for potential birth parents to review because of this.

Ideally we`d love to be blessed with both -- have a house of adopted babies and birthed babies, along with our 4 furbabies, to make our family complete.

Looking forward to getting back into the chatting to catch up with old friends and make new ones here

Tacie - glad to see you back (not that we really want anyone here but you know what I mean). Hope you get a BFP soon. Are you going to the Alex's infertility clinic? I am on the waiting list for an appointment, if DH will ever get his SA done Sad

Thanks for the warm welcome! You're making me blush!
I am glad to be back, to be honest - I've missed you gals

Margaret -- Yes, I have been with Dr Sagal for 3 yrs now but have had special time with each of the doctors there (Dr Motan and Dr Tataryn). I hope you get in soon.

Liss -- I started injections (Puregon) on Feb 25th (CD3), they put me on 150IU for now. Tomorrow I have an ultrasound and a date with the vampire to see if follies are growing and if they have the right dose set up or not. I have my fingers crossed that we can do a trigger and IUI mid to late next week, as DH will be home then and we won't have to thaw the swimmers we currently have the in the freezer (fresh is better than frozen I think).

*squeellll* I am just so happy to be back! Biggrin

Oh goodie, I'm so glad you've started already!!! (ha, we're the craziest, aren't we? Who else gets excited about shots!? Blum 3 )
Yes, I definitely agree with you - I think fresh is better than frozen, too... and if you're able to, might as well make use of it.. Wink Excited to hear how big those little follies are getting!!! KUP on how your appt goes!!

yes we are truly crazy at times -- i never imagined myself asking to be allowed to do shots back 5 yrs ago - LOL!

Two follies are at 12mm - one on left and one on right
Back to get scanned and vampire visit on Sunday ~ fingers are crossed that I don't overstim and that I can trigger Tues evening so that we're in for a IUI Wed when DH is back home

I tested on the weekend and got two pink lines -it was light but there
Today I have AF like cramping and hot flashes, not sure if it is a good sign or a bad sign....guess we shall see
I go for bloodwork on Wednesday, so Thursday I should find out what the beta numbers reveal -- a sticker or another miscarriage
Fingers are crossed that everything sticks and grows this time 'round
