It occurs to me that I went from lurking to commenting without introducing myself. I don't necessarily think anyone wants to hear my life story, but eh.
My husband and I met in high school and have been together 20 years (as of July) and married 14 years (as of September). I was diagnosed with PCOS a couple of years before we got married. We started trying to conceive right before our wedding and, although I went back on the Pill a couple of times in the intervening years to regulate my cycle, I'd say we spent at least 10 of the following 13+ years trying to conceive before I got pregnant in February. Granted, we were only getting any real guidance for the past year or so before that. I started tracking my ovulation regularly instead of once in a while, and even tried three rounds of Clomid. Two of those months, I didn't even get a positive OPK, but I later learned that it's better to test twice a day and once I started doing that I got a positive every month. So I think maybe I really was ovulating all along.
Anyway, February 18th I got the biggest and best shock of my life, the first positive pregnancy test I've ever gotten. Since then, we've had some ups and downs, including being told after our nuchal scan that our baby has a 1/29 chance of having Down Syndrome due to a nuchal measurement of 3.5mm. I'm still not sure how that combined with my age (37) raised the risk so much when the blood work was clear, but I'm just trying not to worry too much. My doctor keeps insisting that I get the Harmony test done (I told her I wouldn't do amnio or CVS) but so many people, including my husband AND another doctor, have questioned why that would be necessary given that we won't be terminating. So I'm still undecided. Mostly, I just want to relax and have a good pregnancy, although it's hard because I'm a worrier.
