Hi my name is Cheryl. I sometimes come on here and lurk from time to time. I'm currently on TTC over 35. Anyway....I'm 37 years old, DH is 39, we have a DS who's 7. We are TTC#2. My very first pg was at the age of 26, that ended in a missed MC. We wasn't TTC because at that time we we're only boyfriend/girlfriend at that time. But with DS we wasn't purposely attempting to get pg nor we're we trying to avoid pregnancy. But a few months of newlywed BD'ing 7 mobths into our narriage we found out we was pg, and we had our first and only son.
Fast forward to now. About two and a half years ago we started to TTC#2. We didn't have much luck after several months of BFN, I had an HSG (no blockage). A few more months went by bfn's, then we decided perhaps 1 child is enough. So we stopped actively TTC for almost a year. This past June mutually we agreed to try again. My OBGYN prescribed me clomid. So I started my first round in September. I was taking it unmonitored. Still BFN's so I decided to seek help from an RE. I had my first apt in Dec. he did 1 sonogram and drew blood from me on two different occasions. Also on the first visit he was pushing IUI & IVF papers at me (a real turnoff). That's ALL he did for me. My regular OBGYN could have done that for me. So last month I decided to not have him as my doc anymore (he was useless). DH swimmers was checked, all was well except he has low morphology.
AF showed up this morning
. Last month was my first cycle temping and using fertility friend. According to fertility friend I have a shortened luteal phase. 6 days to be exact. I don't want to jump to conclusions right away. So I'm going to chart & temp for at least another two cycles (3 in all). Hopefully last cycle was just a fluke, but probably not.
Hopefully you ladies can welcome me. Looking forward to getting to know you all
