Tell us a bit about your TTC journey so far: DH and I have been trying since August 2011. We are on cycle #14. This cycle we are still on clomid, 100mg and I started progesterone supplements, as I have a super short LP.

What are you looking forward to this month: Going to PSU homecoming game, visiting my sister, Gracetoberfest (neighborhood Octoberfest), Chicago Halloween party! We have another busy month!

Tell us a bit about your TTC journey so far: Same as Nicholle - DH and I have been TTC since August 2011. It's been a longer journey than I imagined. I had one loss at 10.5 weeks in June. RE has 'diagnosed' us with 'unexplained infertility' and slightly elevated prolactin levels (I'm on Bromocriptine). I've tried a few natural remedies (Maka Root, EPO etc.).

What are you looking forward to this month: Non TTC-related: Fall! I love the season Walks with the dogs, enjoying the cooler weather, eating lots of yummy Thanksgiving food. TTC-related: Meeting with my RE on the 19th to discuss MRI results and hopefully talk about moving on to IUI!!!

Tell us a bit about your TTC journey so far: My husband and I are in our first month of TTC. I am almost one year post-op WLS as well. We are hoping to get pregnant soon, but I also have fears that the WLS may not have helped my TTC efforts.

What are you looking forward to this month: Family bonfires, changing seasons, and enjoying our 3rd month of being newlyweds.

Tell us a bit about your TTC journey so far: We started trying in April, but we've been sort of trying on and off until last cycle. Now we're trying consistently, using Red Raspberry Leaf, Vit D, and Fish Oil, so we'll see.

What are you looking forward to this month: Hopefully a BFP soon here, but we'll see. Otherwise, just normal, every day things.

Tell us a bit about your TTC journey so far: We just finished cycle 11, cycle 14 since coming off HBP. I've had 1 non ovulatory cycle, 1 long cycle with delayed O. Of the 11 cycles, we've had: 10 cycles of BFN's. 1 cycle of a bfp that ended in a chemical. Of the 10 BFN cycles I had 4 with major Evaps on tests. Now we're technically wttc cause DH is 500 miles away for 4-8 weeks working.

What are you looking forward to this month: Nothing? I turn 29 years old, still no baby, I celebrate it alone. I start a new job I don't want to have. Yeah, I hate October.

Tell us a bit about your TTC journey so far:My DF(26 yrs old) and I (28) decided TTC #1 last cycle..so this would be our second cycle. I am very worried that I won't be able to get pregnant We have been together for 10 years and never have used any protection. We have never "tried", but we haven't exactly tried preventing pregnancy either. My DF is taking a men's multi vitamin along with GNC's male fertilty supplement. I am taking a woman's multi vitamin along with EPO (only from day one my cycle until I O..1500MG to be exact)I used OPK's last cycle and started using them again yesterday. I did chart my CM last cycle, but since using the EPO , I decided not to (just because I figured it would not be accurate bc it increases CM) I started charting my BBT. I am nervous that it iwll not be accurate bc I work 2X overnights a week and cannot take my temp at the same time every day.

What are you looking forward to this month: Getting pregnant! lol I am on CD 10..negative OPK.. hoping this is our month!

Tell us a bit about your TTC journey so far: On day 5 of my cycle, off BCP for close to 4 months. Naturally kind of impatient so.. fingers crossed!

What are you looking forward to this month: family visits, pumpkin patches (there is nothing fall-like about the weather here, but I'm forcing it - I love October!), food and wine festival at Epcot.

I decided to curb alcohol etc this month, with the exception of the wine festival afternoon. I feel like that will be a challenge, because it's so natural to have beer when watching football on Sundays and wanting to have cider in the fall! Anyone else think about this?

Tell us a bit about your TTC journey so far: We have been TTC unofficially for a few years now, however we started "properly" after my endometriosis surgery in November last year. Following my surgery we discovered that I have extensive damage to my fallopian tubes, so if I did conceive naturally I was at high risk of ectopic pregnancy. We started the IVF process in June, and are nearing the end of our first cycle.

What are you looking forward to this month: Egg collection and embryo transfer

Tell us a bit about your TTC journey so far: Me and DF Rob are on cycle #15, we were referred to the ferility Doc in July 2012 after a year of TTC, tests on DH and my bloodwork all came back fine, I had a HSG in August which showed my right tube was blocked. I had surgery on 2nd Oct to correct this and the surgeon was able to open my tube next steps are to continue with weight loss to get my BMIM down to 30 so we can start IUI

What are you looking forward to this month: recovering from my op, my besties (soon to be bridesmaids) are visiting on the 27th to go wedding dress and bridesmaid dress shopping and most of all, i'm looking forward to AF arriving so I can start trying again next cycle - FXd that my right tube being open gives me my BFP!!

Tell us a bit about your TTC journey thus far: Officially, we are on cycle #4 but I have NEVER seen a + HPT and it's not like I've been actively preventing all the time in my life (I'll be 39 December 2). I'm also a type 1 diabetic and that doesn't make getting/staying PG very easy. Because of the unlikelihood of getting PG, my DH and I are trying to adopt through the AZ foster care system.

What you are looking forward to this month: October is not my favorite month: my sister's (deceased) birthday is October 12, and I'm NOT a fan of halloween (diabetic, remember?). I'm looking forward to more humane outdoor temperatures (we are still in the 90s here) and more football.

Tell us a bit about your TTC journey so far: We have been TTC since August 2009. Recently we were able to see a RE and get some help and we found out I had a lot of uterine polyps so those were removed. On our last cycle (#38), the first cycle since the polyp removal, I took 50mg of Clomid and got my first BFP ever. Unfortunately it was not a viable pregnancy and so we also had our first loss.

What are you looking forward to this month: I look forward to getting my cycle back on track and hopefully getting our sticky BFP.

Tell us a bit about your TTC journey so far: We have been TTC since October 2011 so our one year mark is coming up fast. I have PCOS and bad endo, so we started really trying after I healed from my lap last year (September). We had been NTNP off and on for a couple of years before that but I don't ovulate on my own so obviously no BFP. I O'd my first month on Clomid but got a BFN, didn't again until last cycle on 150mg also BFN, just got my +OPK yesterday on 200mg so hoping for a better result this time!

What are you looking forward to this month: We are going to McGuire's for my sister's birthday on Friday! It's a super awesome Irish Pub that is amazing so if any of you are ever in the Destin or Pensacola area you must go there! You might have seen pictures of their bathroom doors which say in large letters LADIES and then in smaller font "don't go in here this is the men's room" or something like that. I think we are going to a corn maze later in the month as well which should be fun. Hoping the weather will cool down enough to open the windows soon, and looking forward to carving pumpkins.
