I'm Susan (31), my hubby is Tom (47). We have been together 6 years now, married 4. I have two older kids (Megan, 13 next month and Marcus, 11) from a previous marriage. I had these two when I was young and apparently much more fertile... lol We also have a zoo of furbabies! My daughter has a fluffy tiger cat, and I have a big fat siamese too. We have two dogs, a golden and chocolate lab. The chocolate lab is my baby, Joy (and she definitely is!). The golden was gotten to help my son. He has aspergers and he needed a forever close, understanding, friend who has unconditional love. Lucy has helped him and brought him out and they are so happy with each other. It's amazing.
Tom and I have been trying since 2009 for our first baby together. I don't ovulate naturally. I also suffer from depression, and that's been hard with infertility and wanting this baby so badly. Because I get so upset and discouraged it took me awhile to get to the doctor.
I worked with one md in 2010, then another in 2011. I lost 55 pounds trying to regulate my cycles and it did nothing. We did blood testing and an HSG test, they all looked fine. My ovaries just didn't want to work!!
Finally, in 2012, near the end we went to see a fertility specialist. He said we should try Clomid. And now we know why it's called the miracle drug!!! The second cycle on clomid we got this!! :

Crazy enough to try all over again for a second together baby! Hoping for a much less wild ride this time!
TTC with PCOS for 5 very long years. Annovulatory cycles. Multiple doctors. Different meds. One horrible loss. And then one wonderful success, born 2/18/14.
I never knew until that moment how badly it could hurt to lose something you never really had. - Missed Miscarriage at 10 weeks - 3/26/13

While it seems frustrating to try for all that time it seems like you were able to make other positive life changes that will be nothing but good for your family and your baby! Congrats to you, your hubby, and family
