Hello all! I have been away from the board for several weeks, and I know there are lots of new girls, so I thought I'd do a quick reintroduction.
My name is Jenny, I'm 29, my husband Scott is 36. We have been married since December 2008, and have never really tried to prevent pregnancy, but started really trying in January 2011 - I joined here shortly after. I had a miscarriage in February of this year - my due date is coming up
I have been diagnosed with PCOS, for which I take metformin, but I ovulate regularly on my own. DH has had 2 SAs - both looking good, with just slightly low motility. I had my first IUI (with Femara) last cycle. Between the failure of that and some very difficult family issues I'm going through, I had to take some time away from the board.
Tomorrow, I have a saline infused ultrasound to look for a polyp that my doctor thought she might have seen on last cycle's u/s. She will also look at my follicles to see when this cycle's IUI will be. If there is a polyp, I will likely need surgery next cycle.
I am so sorry that I haven't been around to support everyone, and I am going to try to do better!

Jenny, Welcome back and thank you for sharing what has been going on with you. Welcome back. I am TTC also. I have only been trying for a few months but this board has been great. None of my friends have children, and my family doesn't know that I am TTC so this group is a lifesaver!
Welcome back, Jenny! I hope the everything goes well tomorrow...
