Where are you in your TTC journey? We have been trying for a year now, we are on CD 15, on our 2nd round of Clomid

How did you come across JM? search engine - looking for help TTC - best thing I've found on the web in a long time!!!!

Have you spoiled yourself lately? Well DH and I have been too busy fixing the new house, but I'd say that was a spoil for us....

Give us a brief summery on how your doing!!!!

Been kind of depressed with the process taking so long. Our medical issues are factors and we are both trying really hard not to let it get to us. We are cycle #2 of clomid and just got the first OPK + this morning, so this could be a good couple of days....

Where are you in your TTC journey? We wanted to try again after our second son was around 2 years, but our older son (now 7) has autism. A specialist told us that we had a strong chance of having another child with autism, so we decided to wait a while. After being certain that our second child was "neurotypical" (yes, that is a word), we wanted to start trying, but I stopped ovulating and having lots of trouble with my endometriosis. We just thought that we were done. Since that time I've done a lot of natural interventions and I'm up and ovulating again. We are on cycle 2 of trying since I've noticed a strong O pattern in my cycles. It has been two years since we initially thought we'd start trying for our third.

How did you come across JM? search engine - looking for advice on when to take an HPT, people's brand preferences, etc. I was so relieved to find the older members TTC forum!!!

Have you spoiled yourself lately? As a belated birthday gift to myself, I am going to spend an entire day next week playing golf with some dear friends and we will end the day at my favorite restaurant.

Give us a brief summery on how your doing!!!!
A little nervous about whether my body will cooperate. "Will I need to have another surgery?" goes through my mind often. Also, I'm trying to get to the bottom of some other abdominal pain that might be endo-related or might be something else like gallbladder. Hopefully, I will have the answer by the end of the week, and hopefully I will O sometime after that!

Where are you in your TTC journey? The birth of our last child, Hannah, was really tough and so I was adamant that we were done. A few months after she was born DH got a vasectomy. I was so relieved! Then about 3 years ago I started thinking about having another baby. After looking into many other options we decided that DH would get a vasectomy reversal. The reversal was in May and we have been actively trying since June. His first SA was horrible and I thought we were doomed but his second one is looking up and the doctor says it should continue to improve this year so we are waiting until November for his third SA and then we are probably going to start IUI.

How did you come across JM? search engine -I don't remember what i was searching for but I found you!

Have you spoiled yourself lately? I went to California this past weekend and did a bit of shopping. I went to Bath and Body works and bought my favorite things from there.

Give us a brief summery on how your doing!!!!
Well, I think I am doing pretty well. It took me about 14 months to get pregnant with Hannah and I really think it was because I knew nothing about my fertility. I am feeling so much more knowledgeable this time that I think if DH sperm can straighten up and behave then I can get pregnant. I am nervous about the pregnancy being 36. I get a lot of questions about having a Down's baby so I have put a lot of thought into that. I think the first trimester of the pregnancy will be really hard for me.

Where are you in your TTC journey? waiting for IVF

How did you come across JM? I googled pregnancy when I was first pg with DS

Have you spoiled yourself lately? not very recently

Give us a brief summery on how your doing!!!! I just had an u/s today and my ovarian cysts are still there. I also drew bw for my estradiol and fsh. I should hear back from the RE this week to see how we'll proceed with IVF, or if we can with these cysts, and also if my estradiol and fsh are back down to normal. What a crappy, stressful week already. Why didn't I do this ten years ago

Where are you in your TTC journey? We had been NTNP for 2 years then I decided to get serious and figure out what was going on. We are on our 6th cycle temping and still no luck....DH has been away now and will be until Nov so we won't be actually trying until then.

How did you come across JM? search engine - for help getting PG

Have you spoiled yourself lately? I bought myself a whole new wardrobe recently because I changed jobs

Give us a brief summery on how your doing!!!!
I am starting to get very upset at the fact that we are having trouble getting PG. I was in a very bad relationship (mentally abusive) and got PG twice on the first try. I finally got out of that bad situation and now that I have found someone worderful to be with we have had all these hurdles. He loves my kids like they are his own but I've always wanted to have more kids. I keep telling myself it will all happen in god's time.

Where are you in your TTC journey? We have been trying since early June

How did you come across JM? Searching for information about pregnancy

Have you spoiled yourself lately? I went on a spending spree and bought books.

Give us a brief summery on how your doing!!!! I am much better than I was when I first realized that September was going to be another BFN month. I am just hoping I get a BFP for my birthday. Due to my moving to a new part of the country just a few months ago, I am still trying to find good medical care. Since it has been ten months since yearly checkup,I know I am going to have to get a new doctor sooner rather than later.

How did you come across JM? probably Google..can't remember!

Have you spoiled yourself lately? Had my haircut & coloured one night last week once dh got home from work to watch the boys...and I've been buying myself clothes here and there!

Give us a brief summery on how your doing!!!! Looking forward to TTC. A little frustrating as we're only waiting because we're going O/S to england at Christmas to visit dh's family. I didn't want to be pregnant whilst travelling with the jetlag/two boys to run after etc.... but sometimes I wish we were trying... but overall, I'm good!

What # are you TTC? #8 This is counting the m/c I had in 2001 but I am almost positive there were others

Where are you in your TTC journey? We are just putting it in God's hands. If it happens it happens. We have struggled with fertility issues for our 22 years of marriage. I am done with all the different testing. I now just take my temp everyday.

How did you come across JM? Wow that was back in 2005 I believe. Most likely google

Have you spoiled yourself lately? I got my nails done last Friday.

Give us a brief summery on how your doing!!!! I am doing well. I have a real peace about TTC. I am so blessed with my 6 children. I would be thrilled if another one came along but again it is in God's hands. I like taking my temp. It lets me know what is going on with my body more.

Where are you in your TTC journey? Month and Cycle #8

How did you come across JM? was searching for answers about severe cramping (m/c, endo, cysts, etc) and found JM and have been addicted you all the wonderful ladies on here since.

Have you spoiled yourself lately? No, not really, I've had too much going on.

Give us a brief summery on how your doing!!!! Frustrated it's taking so long and scared that it's not going to happen. If AF shows this month, I'm looking forward to my doctors appointment on the 2nd to find out what's wrong. I'd rather it be a BFP confirmation....but, I'm not going to hold my breath.

Where are you in your TTC journey? 5th cycle after loss

How did you come across JM? through a search engine when I was looking up pregnancy.

Have you spoiled yourself lately? Hmm, lately? I'm not sure. I guess it's time for a pedicure!

Give us a brief summary on how you're doing!!!! I think that the excitement of TTC dissipated with the first BFN. Now I try not to get my hopes up! I stopped charting this cycle 'cause I was obsessing over my chart. I'm more relaxed and I've started going back for acupuncture treatments.

How did you come across JM? google ttc

Have you spoiled yourself lately? NO!!! been busy with work and all...will do something fun next week...spa or something

Give us a brief summary on how you're doing!!!! Sometime I feels like I just want to give-up, but a little voice inside of me telling me keeping trying. After this month I go back to dr and see what we should try next. I just talked to a friend of mine in TX...she just had her 2nd mc this year and she is so sad right now...and I'm just so heartbroken for her. I'm doing okay and will keep hanging in and hope I will be preggo soon. GL everyone

Where are you in your TTC journey? Umm... I'm not sure it can be counted as a journey when you're home alone lol We're currently on a TTC Break thanks to Uncle Sam (hubby deployed, hoping he'll be home by Christmas)

How did you come across JM? My sister

Have you spoiled yourself lately? Spoil myself? What does that mean?

I'm hanging in there. Had ankle surgery in August to replace the torn tendons (one too many sprains... after 20 years of spraining the same ankle over and over). Its all healed up really well and faster than I thought it would. Staying busy with a teenager and two toddlers while hubby is deployed. Hopefully the next three months go by as quickly as the previous 12 (I'm surprised at how quickly it has gone by)

everyone!!!

We haven't done one of these in a while . . . so who's all with us now?

Name? Angela

Location – where are you at in this world? Pattaya, Thailand

What # are you TTC? Would be our first baby.

Where are you in your TTC journey? TTC after one failed pregancy

How did you come across JM? google searching how to chart

Have you spoiled yourself lately? I do a couple times a week at the spa. (only because its rediculous cheap here. $6/hour massage, $10 mani/pedi, $9 facial, $35 microdermabrasion). Plus I got a DSLR camera and I'm trying to learn to use it!

Give us a brief summery on how your doing!!!! D&C done on 9/19, follow up doctor appointment 9/30. I'm healthy. I'm charting again and my cycle seems to be bouncing back. So just waiting till DH feels up to TTC again. I want to start now! and since he is to lazy to buy condoms and I will not buy them.....i can see him changing his mind sooner then later.

Name?
Karen (Mama K)


Location – where are you at in this world?
Dayton, OH


What # are you TTC?
We're TTC #2; we have a 21-month-old daughter named Anna


Where are you in your TTC journey?
We've been actively TTC since January; am on CD-38, 8 DPO!


How did you come across JM?
I came across JM when I was PG with my DD; I don't remember exactly how I found it - probably doing a search online and found it by happy accident!


Have you spoiled yourself lately?
Not yet, but I'm planning to do a little clothes shopping for myself this month, to get something new for my fall wardrobe. I've been eyeing a few things these last couple of weeks. Just waiting for the credit card to close out so the charges will be on the next bill! We did go out to eat yesterday to my favorite Mexican restaurant!


Give us a brief summery on how your doing!!!!
Doing OK; much more comfortable in this cycle after a convo w/ BeckyM about changing AF data to spotting to make a longer cycle with a more definite O date (which really matches up to what my CM was doing that didn't make sense until I fixed my chart! (Thanks, Becky!) Will be seeing my OB/Gyn next week Tuesday to discuss my irregular cycles, our TTC efforts, and what she might be able to do to help me; have been a little upset with my DH for putting a "deadline" on our TTC, but am still hopeful that the Lord will see fit to bless us one more time before we have to fight about it!!
