Status (MC cycle/rest cycle/TTC cycle): TTC Cycle
MC History: First MC at 5 weeks, second was a CP at 4 weeks. Currently on cycle 17 of TTC… le sigh.
Issues (if any): None known. Just starting testing (see below)
Action Plan for next TTC cycle (ie Baby Aspirin, progesterone, etc): RE told me to stop taking progesterone as he feels it won’t really help, which is a relief because I hate it! Other than that, just keepin’ on and hoping for the best.

What are your biggest challenges right now? The emotional rollercoaster of living life two weeks at a time. Trying not to burst into tears at every pregnancy announcement I see. Ya know, the usual.
Current coping strategies/favorite inspirational quotes: I have some comfort knowing we’ve started testing to find any issues. Every failed cycle is still a cycle closer to baby!
Just for fun: Do you and your partner agree on what sex you would ideally like? I totally thought what Fox said on this question lol we’d happily accept any baby given to us, but if we HAD to choose, I think Darling Husband and I would both prefer a boy first. No reason necessarily – I just had older brothers and would want our future little girl to have a big brother!
As you all know, yesterday was my first RE appointment! No bad news so far. We did an ultrasound and preliminary bloodwork. Won’t have the results on the bloodwork for a few weeks, but he said my ultrasound looked fantastic. No fibroids, polyps, endo, etc. and I had a beautiful follie on my right ovary! He said I should O in the next 24 hours, so Darling Husband I would hit O-2, O-1 and hopefully tonight (O) for this cycle. FX! If we don’t get a BFP this cycle, I’ll have to go in for CD 3 testing and go from there. It sounds like we’d start with stims and timed intercourse. If that doesn’t work, move onto IUI.
