    Yay! a new thread.

    Cycles/months trying: 10

    Current CD/DPO: CD 21 – probably O-ing tomorrow or Wednesday

    Link to Chart (if you have one): http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/Citybear

    Any known issues? Slightly underactive thyroid but am on Synthroid now and trying to get that under control.  All other hormone levels are good.  I had a chemical pregnancy in cycle 5. 

    Next steps? DH has to make an appt for a SA.  Then we make an appt with a RE

    FOR FUN: A favourite chlidhood memory?  Ohhh lots!  Fav one is probably going to Disney when I was 7.

    Thanks for doing this, I definitely need it I think! 

     

    Cycles/months trying: Currently in cycle 8!

    Current CD/DPO: CD 9

    Any known issues? The doctor thinks I may have endometriosis…but I can’t afford the surgrey to find out at the moment…I also have a slightly bicorneal uterus, but I don’t think that shoudl have any impact on TTC, rather carrying the pregnancy full-term.

    Next steps? NExt month we will be making drs appointments to get tested for any other issues, and begin saving for my investigative surgery.

    FOR FUN: A favourite chlidhood memory? I have so many!!! Probably my dad taking me to a lookout to look over the lights of the town when I was about 4…Or all of the trips we took together to the Easter Show!!! As much as I don’t like my Dad, I am such a Daddy’s girl.

    I was on the 1+ page but I never know where to join because I did get pregnant at 8 months but MCd. Anyway thanks for making this. I didn’t realise the other one was so inactive.

    Cycles/months trying: #4 after my mc, 12 altogether

    Current CD/DPO: CD8

    Link to Chart (if you have one):http://fertilityfriend.com/home/466828

    Any known issues? Slight hypothyroid, on eltroxin, may possibly be issue with morphology on his side, while it’s within normal limits, she said abnormality is in the high side.

    Next steps? As I’m 35 and have been TTC over a year now, im starting on clomid with a trigger shot next month. She only wants to do that for two cycles before looking into IVF. That scares the bejasus out of me so I’m praying this works!!

    FOR FUN: A favourite chlidhood memory? Staying in my grandmothers. I was 3 when she died so I really treasure those memories. 

    We were very lucky and got to travel abroad quite a bit as kids. Our trips to America (and to Disney) were my favourite.

    May as well add me in!!! 

     

    Cycles/months trying: Cycle 6

    Current CD/DPO: 7 DPO, but I’m feeling super negative about this month….

    Any known issues? Recently diagnosed with endometriosis and have a lovely chocolate cyst on my left ovary. I’m in the process of waiting for an appt with a specialist (only at least another 5 months to go!) 

    Next steps? Keep on… and on… and on.. and on… and going insanely crazy… until the appt comes though or a + on a stick!

    FOR FUN: A favourite chlidhood memory? My first proper vacation in Memphis and Florida when I was 12.. there was 8 of us (2 families) all together for 3 weeks and it was amazing! We met Elvis’ best friend, saw a space shuttle nearly take off, saw the sun NOT set in Key West (it got cloudy!) Among many other crazy things…….

    CatyLady:  Yup. It SUCKS!!! But at least the Endo dude deals deals in reproductive stuff also! bonus! so if I’m not pg by then, then at least I can go straight in asking for help. 

    FF changed my O date y’day to 2 days later and meaning we only BD’d on O-1, O-2 and O-4…..rather than O and O+1. So for some reason i had in my head that as this month as we’d nailed O and O+1 (different from previous months) that we might have caught it. And next month is already out as DH isn’t around at all during fertile time. Boooooooooooooooooooooo. 

    The chocolate cyst is a blood filled cyst/endometrioma…. it’s been there months and not going anywhere any time soon 🙁 So I’ve no idea if I am even able to ovulate from that side. 

    DH suggested I stop charting/using OPK’s etc last night. Ppppftttttt……. I’m not ready for the flying solo thing yet! At least this way I have SOME control by at least knowing if and when I ovulate. I soon got him to see my way of thinking. But men just don’t get it!! This TWW is a killer!!!!!

    • Wedding: August 2013 - backyard in the woods

    Cycles/months trying: It’ll be cycle 11 in a few days based on my my temps and pain today:(

    Current CD/DPO: 13DPO

    Link to Chart (if you have one): http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/Aqualov

    Any known issues? Stage 1/2 Endometriosis

    Next steps? I have a second laproscopy scheduled April 24th to give us a better chance getting pregnant and reduce my pain, which has been coming back worse every month since I’ve been off the pill to TTC

    FOR FUN: A favourite chlidhood memory? Picking a specific one is difficult, but in general it was playing outside in the woods with my brother. We had a wooded park at the end of our street with a creek and we spent most days there building tree forts, catching frogs and crayfish and having adventures.

    phoebephoebo:  Yeah I was debating joining the 1+ thread next month, but I had a chemical pregnancy cycle 5, so I didn’t know if that ‘reset’ my TTC time.  

    bearsreddy:  Yikes! A chocolate cyst does not sound fun.  And a 5 month wait is insane.  I’ve been avoiding making a RE appointment until DH gets his SA results back, that way I know if we should make an appt with a male factor specialist or just a general RE.

    CatyLady:  I had one in Jan 2013 where I was diagnosed and they removed the Endo that they found. I was put on the pill continously until I decided to TTC. I came off the pill in July 2013 and have been TTC ever since. since we haven’t had any luck TTC and my pain was back I found an Endo specialist. I’m having the second lap because my new doc believes that since my first surgery was an ablation (where they burn off the Endo, often only gets the top layer) that not enough was removed and it has grown back. This surgery will be a robotic excision (cut out the Endo, precise to the millimeter, much better view using the robot too) that should remove any new Endo and what the other doc left of my older Endo, and increase fertility. Fertility is increased in the 3-6 months after a lap because the body isn’t producing/is producing much less of the chemicals that it makes to fight off the Endo. These chemicals also can kill sperm and prevent implanation, which is why many women with even mild endo have issues TTC.

    CityBearBride:  My OBGYN doesnt think so and is going ahead with treatment soon. However, it is positive that we got pregnant once, even if it doesn’t change matters right now. My DH was surprised we’re starting treatment now as as far as he’s concerned we’re on cycle 4!
