I posted my intro so many times on other boards since joining TB years and years ago but never on this board as I was never PgAL until now. So for those who don't know me from other boards here goes
My name is Jo and I am 31. I have been married since 2007 and have twin sons born in 2009 after 2 years of trying and 1 year of ART. I have PCOS. My twins were a miracle conception on my 6th iui before we were to move onto IVF. My PCOS was severe and caused me to not ovulate no matter what medicines I was given. When I finally did O with large doses of injects it was always 1 follicle and "weak". My twins were conceived on the one and only cycle I had 3 follicles from a mix of menopur and follistim at high doses for 17 days.
In 2011 we tried for #3 with 4 iuis which were all BFN. By this point we also had 2 cycles cancelled in addition to the 4 iui because I went from being a poor responder to an over-responder after my twins and having 4-8 follicles each time. We took a break and husband had back surgery so we weren't TTC with help until 2013.
In 2013 we decided to give it one more try with a few rounds of iui, and one IVF if needed. We did one IUI in Dec/Jan which was BFN. In Feb we did another IUI which miraculously resulted in a BFP. Sadly, I miscarried at 5w1d and ended up here. I was devastated as I never ever thought staying pregnant was my issue...only getting pregnant.
Which brings us to now...
This cycle, we tried letrozole on a whim while waiting for our last iui to take place in April. To our surprise, we did have a response, which never happened in all my years of ART. We had 2 great follies at our cd12 check and did an IUI on St. Pattys day. I never ever thought this would work, let alone I would even respond to the medicine. But lo and behold I have slowly watched my trigger fade out and a BFP fade in. This morning, I am finally 100% confident this is a BFP and not the trigger as the line is almost as dark as the control line.
I am cautiously happy to be here but so nervous after my miscarriage. Looking forward to meeting everyone and hoping I can stay here with you for a long long time. Thanks for reading.
p.s. Does this board have an etiquette or PSA blog? I have been on TB since 2007 but obviously never on this board so I want to make sure nothing I say offends anyone.
Edited to include a big thank you to all the ladies from TTCAL for being supportive, welcoming and kind. I was really trying to stay off the internet following my miscarriage buts TTCAL was a source of understanding and comfort. I thank you all for your insight, knowledge and support.
