    Trying since:  July 2011 - 13 months now

    CD/DPO: CD2 :(

    Waiting for: to ovulate, DH is heading in for an SA, whenever he gets off his ass and schedules it. 

    GTKY: "Did you and your partner have a big wedding, small wedding, not married yet or no plans to be?"  We had a medium sized wedding on a big wedding budget - days before the economy tanked (oops! but then again, better spent on a wedding than lost in the market, as we try to tell ourselves!)

    It's 2 days after I triggered, so let's call this O day. 

    Waiting for beta....completed 2nd IUI this morning. MH usually has good numbers, but today not so much, so we'll see.

    Our wedding was small, less than 20 people.  Since we are from different countries it was impossible to plan anything where everyone we really wanted could attend.  We decided to ditch tradition and got married seaside in the Carribean with our closest friends and most immediate family.

    CD/DPO: CD 28 - I'm not charting or temping but I have a pretty normal cycle of 29-31 days, with 0 around 14-16 days.

    Waiting for: next cycle to start, I've had some spotting for the last few days so guessing AF is on her way

    GTKY: We had what I would call a medium wedding, around 150 guests.  The ceremony was a Catholic Mass with a reception at a local country club.

    GTKY: "Did you and your partner have a big wedding, small wedding, not married yet or no plans to be?"  

    We had a very small wedding, less than 20 people.  Just immediate family and friends.  We had a destination wedding and got married on the beach in Key West (love that place!).  I am Catholic, DH is not.  I am not super religious and didn't want a big wedding (my family alone would have invited 200 guests if we had it at home).

    Trying since:  August 2011

    CD/DPO: 23/10

    Waiting for: At this point probably AF. I may test on Sunday, but I tested this morning and got a BFN.

    GTKY: "Did you and your partner have a big wedding, small wedding, not married yet or no plans to be?"  Smaller wedding. It's a second marriage for both of us. We (mostly me) wanted to have that wedding experience for us so we did a really elegant evening ceremony and reception at a local hotel and kept the guestlist under 50.

     TTC since August 2011, Me = 40, DH = 38
    Unexplained IF. Tried Clomid for 3 cycles. All BFNs. BFP 1/6/13. Chemical pregnancy.

    Moving on to IVF#1. ER 11/26/13, 16 eggs retreived, 12 mature and all fertilized. 2 blasts transferred on 12/1. All other embies arrested so nothing left to freeze. Beta 12/10 = BFN. IVF #2 March 2014. BFP!!! TEAM BLUE!!!

    GTKY: Small wedding in Mexico. Just immediate family and close friends.

  • Age: 39

    Trying since: Feb 2010

    CD: 14

    Waiting for: O - we converted this cycle to just Femara and TI vs. IUI and possible Ovidrel due to timing and funds.  I also needed a break from trying so hard since last BFN was so devastating.

    GTKY:  By my family's standards, we had a medium sized wedding.  We had 100 guests (125 RSVP'd - grrrr).  It was a really great party / reunion.  We had a pretty good mix too of friends and family.   

    ? TTC#1 since 2/10 ?

    DX: Me - Slight androgen PCOS Him: Mild MFI Official DX: Unexplained IF

    2/11 - 8/11 - 6 cycles Femara (5mg) + TI = BFNs

    2/12 - 5/12 - Femara(5mg) + IUI = BFNs

    6/12 and 8/12 - Femara (7.5mg) + IUI = BFN :( - considered IUI#3 and 4 by RE

    9/12 and 12/12 - Femara (7.5mg for 3 days) + Ovidrel + IUI = BFN

    After 8 unsuccessful IUIs and no explanation for IF, moving on to IVF Feb. 2013.
