  • Hi Everyone! I am back in the community after a hiatus so wanted to re-introduce myself.

    Ages (you and SO): 34 & 33 (DH)

    How many months have you been TTC?: 5 months this time

    What are you doing to get knocked up (WAYDTGKU)?:  Currenly second round of: Letrozole, Trigger Shot (Ovidrel) and Time Intercourse

    Tell us about yourself! (Kids, pets, job, hobbies, etc.): DH and I have been married for 4 years, together for 10. I have an 11-year-old stepson who is with us full time. We have a 21-month-old son together, who we tried to conceive for 2 years before success. We are going for another little one right now, and face unexplained infertility issues, but we're confident we'll get there eventually! We are very active and enjoy going to our cottage on the weekends in the summer and watching our oldest play sports.

  • @kenneylynn3 so sorry to see you back here so soon, was rooting for you when i saw you move on.  i know you are excited to get back to it and hopefully you can soon
    @babyfeverbeliever welcome and hopefully your stay here is short and sweet
  • @Kenneylynn3 I am so sorry for your recent loss. I hope your stay here this time around is exactly what you need it to be. (You’d left me a very nice message in Healthy Habits weeks ago that I didn’t see until later. When I finally went to respond I noticed you’d moved on.) I’m rooting for you the same way you’re rooting for me.💓

    @babyfeverbeliever Welcome! I know you just got here but I already want to award you with Best Username.😊 Love it! I hope this next round of TTC goes a bit faster for you than last time.
