Hello Ladies...update & reintroduction (loss and children mentioned)

I've been MIA for a bit, and so hello to current posters that don't recognize my screen name.

My fiancé and I have been TTC for 2 years (in July).
We've suffered 4 losses together.
I have 4 children from a previous marriage, however my fiancé has no biological children.

We have also been undergoing a very intense 9 months of getting a complete diagnosis for my man's health. He's currently on medical leave from work, and we are hopefully only a couple of short months away from the proper treatment. (He has a brain disease..most likely Hashimoto's Encephalopathy.)

By the grace of a much greater and higher power, we have been blessed with amazing insurance....so we FINALLY had our first RE appt.!!!

I'm currently awaiting AF and then I start the clomid challenge. With our losses and more than a year stint of infertility, we will be going straight to IVF. 
From what the dr said it could be another 4-5 months before our first FET.

I will do my best to check in and offer my support. It's been somewhat lonely and discouraging along the path and I truly appreciate that this board exists.
