Want to introduce myself!

Hi ladies, my name is Enza. I've been lurking for a while now. Not sure why I hesitated for so long. So here goes:

My first pregnancy that resulted in my beautiful little boy was a total surprise. We have been trying for number two since April 2011. Since then I had two miscarriages, my last one in January of 2012. My RPL panel came back positive for thalassemia minor. I already knew I had that but never knew it can affect pregnancies. I am now supplementing with additional folic acid and iron on top of prenatal vitamins.Since then I haven't been able to get pregnant again.

My husband and I had our first RE appointment in August. Everything (except for the thal minor) checked out fine with my husband and I. The RE suggested we try IUI to take some of the stress away that we have been going through during this process. Over a year and a half of planning intercourse hasn't been too much fun for us!

My RE started me on clomid on the 14th and I triggered on the 23rd. We had our first IUI on 9/24/12 (our 6 year wedding anniversary). I'm trying to keep myself busy and trying now to stress myself out with every symptom I've been experiencing. I go back to the RE on the 8th for bloodwork. Trying my best not to test until then!
