From the last thread:

@MrsPuddingface: You have such a wonderful hubby!! Thinking of you today! : ) XOXO

@mrs.stormylove:  I know, it doesn’t make any sense…I guess they put you on lupron for 6 months which I really don’t want to do anyways because I don’t want to go through menopause and the symptoms associated with it! I have had numerous u/s and they all came back normal. She said it was possible to have endo and it just not show on the u/s because I’m on the heavier side?

I’ve got a few more questions for you, I’ll PM you if you don’t mind.

@EverAfterBegins:  I get sore boobs every cycle, except for last one which was odd, but anyway it can be a symptom or it may not be. There really are no tell all symptoms that determines you are indeed pregnant….only way to know for sure is to pee on a stick! πŸ™‚  Good luck!

@MrsMonty11:  We are close to being cycle buddies, aaaand with the same wedding date! Woop woop! FX this is our cycle! πŸ™‚

@MrsMoksha:  Awww, lovely, you guys are going to be great parents, very soon!! I’m so sorry your going through this, but I’m happy too that they caught it in time before any physical damage was done. I think getting the HSG is a good plan and I hope that if there are any blockages, they are easily removed. Best wishes to you my dear.

Roll Call:

Cycles/months trying: Cycle 17, Month 18 9/2011, NTNP since May 2009.

Current CD/DPO: CD2

Chart (if you have one): http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/yellowclover

Any known issues? PCOS and suspected endo

Supplements/medications: Prenatals, Vit. D, B-Complex

Next steps? Taking it easy for now. Hubby has his appointment on 4/18 for blood work so we can finally get our referral for the fertility clinic. In the meantime, I’m probably going to schedule an appointment with my GYN to talk to her about the suspected endo and having a lap done. But, in all honesty, I’m praying we’ll see a BFP before any of those things happen. πŸ™‚

Well, here’s my first time posting in the 6+ club.

 

Cycles/months trying: Cycle 7, 7 months in april

Current CD/DPO: CD11

Chart (if you have one): http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/rosworms

Any known issues? We are both overweight. We have not tested for anything specifically fertility related.

Supplements/medications: Prenatals

Next steps? I don’t know. Since my insurance does not cover anything sort of fertility assistance, I don’t really want to find out that we might need assistance. I don’t want to lose all hope just because I can’t afford to pay for fertility assistance out of pocket.

This all looks so very complicated. Do most women follow these charts and map their cycles when they want to get pregnant? I wouldn’t even know how to do that! I really had no idea that it was such a complicated process.

I don’t think my FI and I will have trouble since he managed to get me pregnant when I was on the pill! I know that isn’t the best situation for the baby, and unfortuantely we lost our baby last year. My concern isn’t getting pregnant so much as whether or not I can carry the baby since I couldn’t seem to before.  

When we try again, I will make sure to get off the pill, take folic acid, and do all the things you’re supposed to do. Our last conception was unplanned but welcome. My FI was so excited and went out to buy pre-natal vitamins, re-did our spare room to a nursery…Ah, bad memories.

@BoxerLady:  This thread is for ladies who have been trying to get pregnant for 6+ months. So yes, because it has taken us longer than “norm” to get pregnant, we chart to help our chances of conceiving. I’m sorry you suffered a miscarriage, but from the sounds of it, you have no fear of getting pregnant – which is great, kudos to you – so you may not need the help of charting. However, there are many of us on this thread who would give our left arm to have the chance to say, we have no problems getting pregnant. Best of luck to you when you guys start trying.

@rosworms:  Welcome to 6+.  Sorry you have to be here, but it’s a great group of ladies!

@Yellow.Clover:  Hi! How are you doing?

@RoyalLime:  Hoping you get some good luck from starting the thread. πŸ˜‰

@MrsMoksha:  I’m so sorry you’re going through this.  I know it must be so difficult.  I’m very glad they were able to take care of it before any damage was done, and I really hope the HSG does good things for you.

@picturemeurs: Hi there, thanks for asking about me.  Nothing too exciting here, but DH is going for his SA on Thursday, so that’s exciting/terrifying.  I’m so glad he’s getting it done but I’m so nervous about the results.  Last night he told me he’s sure they’ll say something is wrong and that he’ll be devastated if he finds out we can’t do this the natural way.  Of course that news is somewhat devastating to anyone who gets it, but hearing him say that broke my heart a little.  I just hope everything is okay.  So glad to hear your HSG went well!  But holy crap, ibuprofen?!  Sorry you had to deal with an allergic reaction – yuck. When do you start BCP?  You should plan something really fun during those 9 weeks, something you can’t do when you’re pg. πŸ˜‰

@hardtoconcentrate:  I’m doing well! πŸ™‚ Just chugging along…CD2 nothing exciting going on but mother nature. I do enjoy the wait before getting all obsessed with BD’ing on schedule and then the ever ending symptom spotting…so it’s nice to just relax for a week or two or three(?). Plus we have our home inspection tomorrow so that will be enough stress on it’s own!

How are YOU doing my dear!?? πŸ™‚

ETA: Ooops, guess I should’ve read the rest of your post. I’m praying you DH’s SA comes back perfect! I know it’s scary…and I’m sorry he’s having such a hard time with it. Once the test comes back, I’m sure you guys will feel a huge sigh of relief.

@Yellow.Clover:  Sorry about that. I’m not familiar with all the acronyms yet and I didn’t know what a lot of this thread meant. My sister in law is in a similar situation as me – she can get pregnant, but she can’t carry a child (she has lost 3 babies now). I’m not sure if there’s anything that can be done about that, but I certainly hope it was a one off situation for me.

I’m obviously not an expert at all – but stress is always a negative. My FI and I got pregnant when we were relaxed, having daily sex, and not trying. Maybe a breather would help some ladies just to let their bodies relax without pressure.

One lady I baby-sit for in uni spent thousands of dollars trying IVF about 6 times. They finally conceived, and then about a year later they got pregnant naturally when they weren’t so fixated on trying anymore. This also happened to someone I work with. Losing a baby was awful and I’m sure not having a baby when you want one is awful too. Sorry, ladies πŸ™

@BoxerLady: Sadly relaxing is not a cure all. Someone with diabetes, heart disease, etc – do you tell them to relax? Will relaxing cure them? Sadly, it won’t. Yes, there are many who say they got pregnant when they finally relaxed and maybe they did, or maybe it was just coincidence? There are many women who face infertility and the struggles that come with it. I pray that you never have to face that, like your sister. I’m not trying to come across offensive; I’m just trying to make you aware of the situations. Sadly infertility is not talked about as much as it should be. Many people are not aware of the sensitivities associated. Infertility sadly affects 1 out of every 10 couples.
