Hello and welcome! I'm Sam. I've been trying since December with my husband. Some of the ladies here recommended Fertility Friend to me, which is an excellent way to keep track of your cycle. I look forward to getting to know you.

Expecting our first child in February... Team pink!
1st beta 14dpo = 150
2nd beta 18dpo = 782
3rd beta 23 dpo = 5,362
Missing my puppy, but grateful to have shared a bond with her for two years.

Hi Susan,

I'm Nicholle , one of the cohosts of this board. I would recommend reading as much as you can about ttc. Charting and temping helps as this confirms your O date. I'd also read about your cervical mucus and cervical position as well, so you can identify fertility signs. Feel free to ask questions and to rant as needed. I hope you have a short stay here!
TTCing since August 2011
Me (33)-LP on the short side, but no other abnormalities
DH (37)-slightly subfertile morphology and motility

Natural cycles-August 2011-July 2012
August 2012-October 2012 clomid and progesterone
November 2012-IUI
December 2012, cysts from IUI, on bcp

January 2013-February 2013, long protocol IVF
15 eggs retrieved, 11 mature, 7 fertilized with ICSI
All 7 made it to 5 day transfer, 2 were transferred
Only 1 frozen snowbaby
1st IVF

May 10, 2013, lap sx, Stage 1 endo

June 2013 - MA Round 2
Femara + hcg shot
IUI # 2

FET tentatively scheduled for 10/31/13

Have never seen a bfp.

Welcome Susan!!!!!!!!!! I am Elle - DH and I have been TTC our first since August 2012.

Ditto Nicholle - reading up on TTC has been a huge help to me and the nest part is once you come across something you have a question about the ladies on here are so knowledgeable!!!

Someone else on the board recently linked us to this site that I have found particularly helpful Niamh Dhabolt's FAM Charts - How Does FAM Work?

Best of luck to you!!!

Thank you *Kiliki* for the amazing siggy!!

Expecting our first baby August 25th, 2014!!!

Congrats on your upcoming wedding! I agree with all the advice given here by the ladies - fertility friend and TCOYF were great resources when we first started TTC! I even had DH read TCOYF - which was really helpful.

Thanks Jaidynsmum for the siggy!

Hi Erica, i'm jen (youve probably seen my introduction earlier in the thread) - welcome to the board! Sorry about the PCOS diagnosis, there is a board on JM for ladies TTC with PCOS which you might find helpful too! I look forward to getting to know you better but I do hope your stay here is short and sweet!

Oh and please take the time to sign our february roll call which is a sticky thread on the main TTC#1 board!
