Trouble TTC
Options

Intro =)

Hi everyone,
My name is Barrie and I am a 31 (well, on Monday!) year old female.  My wonderful husband, Blane, is 41.  I am a registered nurse and he is a fifth grade teacher.  We are currently trying to conceive our first child and are on our third round of fertility treatments.  I have always been irregular and have been diagnosed with PCOS.  I tried Clomid, about 7 years ago, with my ex husband.  Looking back, I suppose it was a blessing that it never "took".  In any event, years and many life lessons later, here I am again!  The last two rounds of treatment, I took Femara 5mg CD 3-7, Ovidrel and IUI.  The first round resulted in a chem pregnancy.  I didn't respond great the second round-only had one little collie =(  My RE gave me the option of upping Femara to 7.5mg or giving Clomid 100mg a go.  I opted to start fresh and try the Clomid.  I haven't heard of too many people making the switch this way but I hope it is successful. (I should also add I am on 1500mg Metformin)

In any event, I am excited to join this community.  It is strangely comforting to know there are other women with whom to share these hopes, happinesses, and sometimes, heartaches.  I look forward to getting to know you guys better and feel hopeful for us all =)
