Hi from a somewhat newbie

DH and I started TTC in 2006 but due to only having one fallopian tube started seeing RE after 6 months.  After no sucess on Clomid and failed IUIs decided to step off of this emotional roller coaster and jump on the adoption roller coaster in late 2007.  We finally were natched with a little boy last Oct and adoption was finalized in May.  We decided to give the whole TTC thing one more shot this spring and started with a new RE that has helped several friends get pregnant.

New RE is great!  Found out that DH's morphology was low-5% so started supplements.    I don't ovulate on my own and he thinks I may have PCOS.  We did one IUI which resulted in BFN.  Did another SA on DH and morph has dropped to 3% so RE suggested doing IVF as IUI will most likely not work(less that 5% chance of it working).  We are hoping to do IVF after the first of the year.
