    Hi ladies
    Not sure this is where I should be posting but I thought I'd give it a whirl! If there's a different place I should be posting to, let me know...

    Anyway, I was a big part of these boards when I was ttc #1 and, after some trouble, I gave birth to my little beauty in April '08. We've been ttc#2 since March '10 and it's been a doozy!

    Here's my journey:
    PCOS
    Metformin
    6 rounds of clomid
    3 rounds of femara (2 with IUIs)
    All BFNs
    1 round of femara + bravelle injections + IUI (in process)

    So, just wanted to put my "hello" out there...I had such a great experience with these boards the first time around but, like I said, I totally understand oft Isis the wrong board to post to! Thanks for listening!

    Hi
    Nice to meet you.
    I'm Liz...we've been tryinig for nigh on 3 years now with 5 miscarriages...3 chemical and 2 missed.
    So you're in the right place for frustration buddies.

    This is never the wrong board for anyone.
    Although it says 2 years and more we welcome everyone...because it probabl feels like more.
    The more the merrier here....as long as you bring cake and cocktails for our kitchen.

    Thanks ladies! My name is Lesley

    Ya, I thought trying for my DD was hard but, in comparison, this is so much harder! It's like every round of meds you get your hopes up and then here comes AF I refuse to even buy HPT anymore, I just go get a blood test on the date I'm supposed to.

    Have any of you done the Bravellle injections? We're on day 8 post IUI #3 and my RE said she didn't have much confidence in this cycle cause, even though I originally had 2 follicles growing, only one continued to grow and it didn't even reach 2 so we'll see. If I'm not knocked up this cycle, we switch to a higher dose of bravelle which, I think, GREATLY increases our chances of multiples . I'm fine with twins but my biggest fear is having to make the dedision whether or not to selectively reduce. It's all such a pain in the rear!

    I know how you feel completely. As much as we want to be preggers, let us hope it does not come to that.

    Raspberry champagne?? I'm so coming over...
