I'm happy to be able to post now, I have been lurking for a little while and I really like the feel of this community.
I used to be on other TTC and such boards before. But never really found my place, even after years. For example I'm not a huge fan of trying to share a story or concern and all I get is baby dust thrown at me.
I know people mean well but I see baby dust as the same thing as getting told "just relax and it will happen".
So yes I really like the attitude of this forum so far ^.^
Since right now is a very important part of my life for me and also a time where I could use people to talk to, people who understand. I figured I would try and join, hopefully I will fit in well.
Here is our story so far:
I am 28 and my husband is 32. We have been TTC our first child for over three years. Since December 28, 2011. In December 2013 we went to our first fertility specialist appointment. After getting poked by needles more times than I can count and many other tests the diagnosis was:
Me = Mild PCOS and husband = Very low count and motility. After more tests he was diagnosed with a varicocele vein, and after the procedure to fix it and a few months his sperm count and motility went up a little bit, but not enough unfortunately.
So the most viable option for us is IVF. After a few months of waiting (yay 50 day cycle) I am finally on the pre-IVF cycle, I started the birth control pill yesterday. And will be starting metformin soon. And Next cycle I will undergo a modified IVF cycle, with ICSI. That should be around end of June or start of July.
Sorry if that was long, I wanted to give details but I tried not to be too much. Hopefully I get to meet some of you who are going through the same thing or similar.
Small about me section: I am a huge geek, love video games and board games. Love reading especially fantasy books. Love movies, like Star Wars and Lord of the Rings and Marvel movies. I enjoy cooking and baking, and eat too many sweets. We have six cats, yes we are crazy cat people lol.
Nice to meet all of you. (*^▽^*)
