Baby #: 1

Cycles TTC: 1 year

Known fertility issues: endo

Previous fertility treatment?: IUI

Trying anything new this month?: nothing, waiting to hear back on my plan to move forward with IVF

POAS/Beta date: no date, we’re still doing things the natural way until IVF, but no opk/temping/tracking

Just for fun: What are you most looking forward to this fall? I’ve decorated the house for Thanksgiving (it’s in 2 wks in Canada) and just bought pumpkins today! I don’t know what’s happening with Halloween this year, but I love decorating for it. I love the summer, so the cooler weather makes me kinda sad

Baby #: 2 (our son is turning 2 this week)

Cycles TTC: since July 2019, with one miscarriage

Known fertility issues: MFI + PCOS + being old, lol

Previous fertility treatment?: 2 medicated cycles, 1 IUI, 1 IVF round that netted 0 to 2 PGS normal embryos (waiting on genetics)

Just for fun: What are you most looking forward to this fall?  My husband and I enjoy football on tv, hiking in the changing fall colors, and dressing up with our little guy for Halloween.  It’s already snowed twice here in the Rockies lol, so winter is right around the corner.

Hi bees, I took a break from the boards whilst we processed our SA news (pretty awful results that completely blindsided us based on the fact I got pregnant in cycle 1 last March). Absolutely everything has been on hold here for months due to Covid but I finally had my hsg today. It was painful but not horrific and we finally got some positive news in that all looks ok! I was fully prepared for the worst as scarring and blocked tubes from my tfmr have been mentioned so it was a huge relief. I have a follow up next Thursday with my consultant and it looks like we’ll finally be making a plan on how to move forward. 

Not sure I’ll roll call as we won’t be doing any treatment in October, and it seems our chances alone are pretty much zero, but I’ll be checking in and keeping everything crossed for you all.
