I know it is a bit late in the month to post, but I am finally coming to terms with our infertility and ready to share and get support! 

ROLL CALL

Your age/partner’s age: 28/29

Baby #: 1

Cycles TTC: 12

Current CD/DPO: 7 DPO

Usual cycle length: 32- 35 days 

Ovulation date or procedure (and what kind): nov. 19

POAS/Beta day: Wont test unless AF is late 

Known fertility issues: Male low motility/ possible PCOS. Finally got a referral to see fertility specialists this month, but we have to wait until AF arrives fore blood tests, and then it’s a 5 month waiting list! 

BFP plan: trying to not get frustrated in the wait to see the specialists. Working out, losing weight. 

Trying anything new this month?: Trying to improve health for myself and hubby.

For Fun – There are a few upcoming holidays! Which is your favorite of the year and why? I love Christmas because I enjoy making and giving gifts to family and friends 🙂

prettyshinythings :  Sorry you are here, but welcome. Are you going to an RE or an OBGYN? Generally people on the board recommend you go directly to an RE, as an OBGYN can only do so much. The wait sucks but you are right – its a great time to start working on health. I recommend the book It All Starts With The Egg.

mrsalexander :  getting a second opinion is challenging, but we are going to do it (my clinic is the only one in my province and there’s only one doctor there). We will need to fly to another province for a second opinion, but obviously it’s worth it since my current doctor doesn’t think anything will actually work to thicken my lining and he’s not incredibly willing to try different protocols.

ttw16 :  sorry about af. Medicated cycles are a bit of a mind fuck, because you have renewed hope it could work. Hoping the next cycle is better!
