Hi ladies! Thought I'd introduce myself before I jump on in. My name is Samantha [25], I am married to a wonderful man named Johnny[30] & we have a little boy, Brayden [Brady for short] that is almost 3 Ĺ that was conceived our first month trying. We started trying for #2 in July 2008 after Brady turned a year old.

After 18 months of trying I finally went to the doctor. We had an HSG done which revealed that I have a unicornuate uterus, the doctors weren't surprised. I had my son via C-Section and they seen it then & assumed that was part of my problem. So the right side of my uterus never formed when I was in utero. The HSG also showed that my left tube was blocked, which thank god came unblocked by the dye. The doctor told us to try for 3 cycles and if nothing happened to come back. I scheduled the appointment to go see them & found out shortly after that I had indeed gotten pregnant on that third cycle. Sadly it ended in miscarriage at 5w1d on May 27th. After all that time trying there was finally a light at the end of the tunnel & poof it was gone. The loss was so devastating to me & in turn my marriage suffered when my husband didnít react the way I felt he should have. Thank god after a couple months everything went back to normal & we were back to TTC. NowÖ3 months later nothing. So here I amÖ.28 months later & still no baby #2.

I am getting to the point where I really feel like I need support from other women in my situation. The doctors donít think Iím having problems ovulating since Iím getting EWCM & + OPKís every month. This month we are trying vitamins, which we were both taking when we conceived in May. I feel like everyone around me is getting pregnant. My husband has a cousin who already has 3 kids by 2 different guys [wasnít sure which of the 2 guys was her 3rd childís father] and now sheís with a 3rd guy pregnant with twins! Has no job, lives off the government & someone like me and my husband canít have ONE more child. My husbandís aunt who is in a very mentally & physically abusive relationship just had a baby girl. I just donít understand!

Excuse my rant [: I guess Iíll start jumping in now!

Welcome! I'm very sorry to hear about your loss. That is so hard. I haven't personally experienced it but I have had a number of friends who have. I hope your stay with us is short but very happy to get to know you in the meantime! I'm Coley (28) and DH is Matt (32) and we have no children. We've been trying for over two years.

I'm hoping that having ladies that are going through the same thing will help ease some of my "jealousy" towards pregnant women. Thank you, we get SO many compliments on his eyes. He gets em from his momma, lol. [;

We are ALL jealous. And there's nothing to understand, when some people that don't deserve children have children and we can't... We're all here for each other, we all go through the same thing and the support here is amazing

Let me introduce myself, I'm Marie, 25 and DH is Nathan, also 25. We've been trying for 2 1/2 years. I was put on Clomid on Monday since my OB/GYN doesn't think I ovulate normally. I'm starting Clomid next cycle

Hi I'm Christina. I'm sorry to hear about your troubles with TTC - we all understand here.
I had a miscarriage with my first pregnancy; 2 healthy boys followed. When I married my DH, we had our minds set on having a baby together . . . and got pg once, after about 8 months of marriage. It was ectopic and before they could figure out what was wrong, it ruptured. Afterward they told me my left tube had been blocked due to the 2 C-Sections I'd had with my DSs. The doc told me my right tube was Ok and that I shouldn't have any trouble getting pregnant again . . . that was May 2007. Here I am, still waiting for my baby
Hopefully it won't be much longer before your BFP! I wish you Good Luck!
