Trouble TTC

Hello and Intro

Hi Everyone,

I've been lurking for quite some time and decided to finally jump in and introduce myself! I tried to create a siggy but I'm not sure if I did it right, so here is my info - hubby and I have been trying to conceive since April 2011. We didn't do our initial testing (through OB) until about 16 months due to moving and getting set up with a new doctor. In August 2012 we had initial testing, including cd3 bloodwork, 7dpo bloodwork, HSG and SA. Everything came back normal and we were given the "unexplained" diagnosis. I also started doing acupuncuture at my OB's recommendation. We were thrilled to get a BFP in September, but then I miscarried in October at 7weeks.

We've since been trying for 6 cycles unsuccessfully. We met with an RE at the end of March and he re-did all of the bloodwork and SA and also did some further testing. Our original plan was to give clomid a try for a couple of cycles and then move on to IUI. However, unfortunately at my cd3 ultrasound in April they found a cyst on my ovary so that plan was put on hold. Went back for my cd3 ultrasound in May and cyst was still there, but smaller, so again benched for the cycle. I'm trying really hard to be patient, but this process is just so frustrating. And my original due date is around the corner in June, and I'm finding it so depressing to feel like we are "on hold" at this point.

I'm sorry this is so long, I was just trying to be thorough! This seems like such a supportive place and I am looking forward to participating more actively! Thanks for reading:)

Me: 31, DH: 31, TTC since April 2011. "unexplained" dx
Initial testing through OB in August 2012, including HSG and SA
Sept 2012 BFP, m/c at 7weeks.

    Welcome to posting!  Sorry you've been benched these two cycles.  I can only imagine how hard it is to be coming up on your due date, but be kind to yourself around then.  I'm sure when my EDD in October comes I'll be a bit of a mess, and that's OK.  Good luck that the cyst is gone next check, and you're able to move forward.
