Hey guys, I'm Smootie! I was very active here and the main board from July '11 to Jan '13, but took a long bump break due to some marital issues. DH and I had "the talk" this week about getting a plan back together for becoming parents, and I've found myself lurking on the boards a lot since. Hope you don't mind if I stay here for a bit - this is mostly where I was before my break because I'd become a bit of a bitter, old hag on the main board.
Since there are some faces I don't recognize, here's a bit about me: DH and I started our TTC journey in April '11, and I got my BFP a few months later that ended in a CP. We've had no luck ever since. We started IF testing in the summer of '12 and found out DH has MFI. He had surgery in Sept '12 to see if we could improve any of his numbers. They said it could take up to 2 years to see full results, so we're just about at that anniversary.
As for our plan, DH is going to get re-tested sometime in the next few months. Best case scenario would be enough of an increase to TTC on our own, but we've been NTNP for the past year and half, so I'm not terribly hopeful. Most likely scenario would be we have to decide between IVF and adoption, which we are planning to do around the end of the year.
Excited to be back!!!
