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:
6 rounds of clomid
3 rounds of femara (2 with IUIs)
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!
Welcome back to the boards. What's your name?
My name is Shannon. SO & I have been trying for nearly 4 years for #1, so I totally understand your frustrations with TTC. I hope your stay here is short & sweet and you get that 2nd miracle you're so hoping for.
(m/c 04/04/2008 & 02/12/2010)
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.
Hey Harper's Mom, my soul cyster. I'm Meg. I have PCOS too, so I understand your frustration. The ladies on this board have been very welcoming (and awesome).
I'm sorry about the frustrations you're having. Just keep the faith - it WILL happen. And you will always be able tell your baby how hard you tried for them b\c you wanted them SOOOO much.
You're in my T&P. Nice to meet you.
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!
Welcome You'll love it here, lots of support from a great group of ladies
You've been thru so much already - I hope that the rest of 2011 brings only GOOD things your way!!!
