Trouble TTC

Finally Decided to Join (Intro)

So after several months of lurking (yes I'll admit it, I've been stalking a little bit), I finally decided to join the board. I think I've finally gotten to the point where I want and need to connect with other women who are going what I'm going through and I want to offer my support to those who are having TTTC as well! 

A little about me - been with my DH for 9 years, married for 3. Love to watch TV/movies, read books, play with my dogs, ski, hike, go out to dinner with my hubby. We started TTC around our 2 year anniversary in May 2011. Of course I thought it was going to be easy and quick because my SIL got pregnant the first month she tried (of course she did)...and then learned after months of getting the BFN, ok, maybe this isn't going to be as easy as I forward to April 2012, we finally got our first BFP, which unfortunately ended up as a CP.

After a year of trying naturally to conceive, we ended up at our RE's office in May 2011. Turns out DH has low count/motility and I have some hormonal issues (low P4, indicates possible annovulation, although charting has shown otherwise most months - maybe it was a bad month??) and thin uterine lining (5.5 mm). 

This cycle is our first medicated cycle (50 mg Clomid Days 3-7 and trigger) and I had IUI #1 last Friday. Currently 6 DPIUI. I'm obviously trying not to get too hopeful, because I know by seeing so many of you on here, it's not an easy journey and IUI #1 DEFINITELY doesn't mean I'm going to get a BFP as much as I may want that to happen.

I look forward to sharing with and supporting all of you during your journey to that elusive BFP! FX for all of you! 

And on a totally unrelated note, for those of you who love dogs like I do (especially little puppies), I've been watching the live cam of these 6 golden puppies that are going to be service dogs for wounded vets. Awesome cause, and these little balls of fur bring a smile to my face no matter how crappy my day is, and with IF we all know there are a lot of those.!/live-cams/player/service-puppy-cam

    Thanks to all you ladies for your support (and so quickly too), I truly appreciate it! I hope I'll be able to give my support back to all of you in the future. 

     - tayray1: Nice to have a cycle buddy. I had to have my DH hide all the pregnancy tests so I won't give into my compulsive need to POAS. I go in for my beta (if I even get there) on 14 DPIUI, so next Friday - what about you?

    - Bizzy80: Aren't those puppies the cutest? It makes me want to get another puppy (we have 2 big dogs already), DH thinks I'm nuts - which he normally thinks 95% of the time!

    Welcome!  I'm really sorry you have to be here too.  Of course, I wish we could all just be naive like we were at the beginning (or like 90% of the population) and just assume it will happen within a few months (BOOO!!).  I really hope you breeze through here with BFP on your first IUI.  Good Luck!

    Oh I watch that at work LOL! Something in common already! We are pretty close in IUI cycles as well- I had my first on the 3rd :) Should find out tomorrow! 

     Keep us all updated on your journey, I myself am also pretty new on here, but just love the connection all of us TTC'ers have! My husband prefers to keep all this to ourselves for the most part, so it's nice to be able to share feelings, side effects and "oh ***!" moments :)
