Cycles/months trying: 37 months
Age (if you care to share): Sadly about to turn 38. >.<
Chart (if you have one): http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/2fd143
Estimated next POAS date: I’m currently CD6, with a O that likes to mix it up, so I’m *guessing* that I’ll be Oing in the next week to 10 days and then will start testing 8 days after, so maybe around 2 weeks from now?
Any known issues? PCOS, Hashimotos, MTHFR mutations, a septum (now FINALLY gone), progesterone deficient, thin lining.
Supplements/medications: What DON’T I take?! Let’s see…. Metanx, Levothyroxine, Metformin, Estradiol (during follicular phase), PIO (progesterone in oil during luteal phase), Lovenox (during luteal phase), vitamin D3, Iron, vitamin C, Fish Oil, Magnesium, mushroom extract, myo inositol, bioactive prenatal, methylcobalamin, adenosylcobalamin, and probably some other stuff that I’m completely forgetting about. lol
How are you going after you BFP: Ttc again! Finally. We have a monitoring u/s next week to see if my lining is responding well to the estradiol, and then another one when we hit 7dpo plus a progesterone test to make sure the PIO shots are doing what they should be. In addition to PIO shots, I’m also doing Lovenox shots. Then just hoping that it’ll be a sticky bfp month!
Your plans for the tww: To stay as busy as I can manage! lol I’m a confirmed POAS-aholic, so I’ll start testing around 8dpo (I’ve had a positive that early before). Until then I’ll probably symptom spot despite telling myself not to. 😉
What makes you smile? My husband!! I can’t even begin to describe how blessed I am with him! 🙂 Also, wonderful friends, beautiful things, going on trips, reading books, helping people! 😀
What is your typical Saturday like? Working! lol My “weekends” come during the week since I work in retail. 🙂
Favorite meal? Oooo that’s a toughie. Probably homemade gluten free, AMAZING pizza!! 😛 For dessert? I’m gonna go with chocolate macaroon pie! 😀

I’ve been pretty quiet for a long time. I recognize at least a couple of faces in here, but sadly lots of new ones as well. For those who don’t remember me/don’t know me: We have been ttc for over 3 years now. Between December of 2011 and January of 2013, we got pregnant 6 times and lost every one of them. I’ve had 2 surgeries to try and remove the septum in my uterus that’s been killing my baby (loooooong story there), and FINALLY got the news today that my septum is OFFICIALLY gone! We have been given the green light to ttc again immediate, and I’ve been put on estradiol to bolster my lining as it’s shown to be very thin during my LP on my last two u/s. As I said above, I’ll be getting monitoring this time both before ovulation (I typically ovulate cd16-19) and after.
Once I get a positive HPT, I’ll be calling immediately to set up a beta and progesterone test. My progesterone will be tested with each of the first two betas and then weekly after that to make sure that it’s staying nice and high during pregnancy. My RE will also be getting me in touch immediately with a high risk OB to start discussing continued use of lovenox throughout my pregnancy and what monitoring I’ll need to have done.
I’m hoping and praying that everyone in this thread ends up with their miracles this year!!
