Hello All! I am 33 and DH is 34. I am a frequent lurker...have been for many years. I would like to finally step in and join you gals if you don't mind. As you can see from my siggy, we have a pretty extensive infertility resume. But we do have one wonderful thing to show for it...my 2-year-old son. To our shock, we got preggo naturally twice since my son was born. The first was a chemical. Then we suffered a really horrible miscarriage at 10 weeks. I am still dealing with it and its been 11 months. But I need to move on and keep my eye on the goal. We've been trying on our own to no avail...the problem is that I feel defeated.

Our RE suggested Clomid/IUI since we did get preggo on our own, so we gave it a shot last month. I only have one tube so I wasn't too hopeful...and it turned out to be a BFN. So we are getting ready to start IVF again.

So now I am trying to lose the defeated attitude and bring on the good energy for a change. We'll see!

Anyway, thanks for being here...and I'll be sure to stick around!

HI! And

I'm so incredibly sorry for your loss. But, I'm glad you decided to stop lurking and start posting. We can never have enough people who have been through IVF to tell their experiences around here. I hope that your next cycle of IVF brings you a very sticky bean that we can all celebrate with you!

Hello and welcome!!!

Im very sorry for your loss. I felt the same way when we lost our first pregnancy at 12 weeks..I could barely get myself out of bed for weeks.

We started ttc May 2004. We have tried IVF 3x's and 3IUI's but all were BFN. We have gotten pregnant twice naturally. the first was a m/c at 12 weeks in 2007, the second is our son

I hope your BFP is right around the corner!!!!

I'm Kimberley and my DH is Jason. We're just starting our first IVF cycle. I'm very sorry for your losses. I also had a m/c at 10w and it took me a really long time to put it behind me. Best of luck to you for a sticky BFP!

I'm Carin and my DH is Brian and I joined this group recently. I am sorry to hear about your loss. I know it is very difficult to get past it and I still cry on the day of my loss that occurred over 5 years ago at 5 weeks pregnant. I was diagnosed after 7.5 years with LPD and progesterone deficiency. After Prometrium I had my second BFP and that resulted in my DS. I am TTC #2 with Progesterone and vitamin treatment and this is my first medicated attempt since 11/2007.

I hope you get your BFP soon! I look forward to get some advice, especially if I have to progress in treatment.
