After years of trying, 2 years of fertility meds, multiple surgeries, blood draws and needle sticks, some awful pre-IVF complications, and endometriosis and PCOS,
We are done TTC. Praying for peace as we accept this...
Hoping for some comfort after our most recent (and 3rd) surgery and starting Lupron!

How was your weekend?: Great - DH and I celebrated our second wedding anniversary which is today. It was a fun and relaxing weekend with a few great meals and a lot of reminiscing about the past few years
Anything else? (adoptions, news, anything!) Nothing else new

How was your weekend?: nerve wracking... waited on Saturday for an embryo progress report.. and it took them so long to call, I was in TEARS..sure bad news. It was, thankfully, good news. We had embryo transfer yesterday!

How was your weekend?: It was good- great weather and good quality time with DH!
Anything else? (adoptions, news, anything!) Nothing here!
Thank you brie_91 for this fabulous siggy!!
Our TTC journey: 6 cycles Clomid, lap surgery/ D&C, IUI, 2 x IVF; 33 cycles- BFN.
IVF#1 (March 2010) Transferred two 8-cell grade A (perfect) embies- BFN and heartbroken.
IVF#2/FET#1 (Jan/Feb 2011):Transferred two (7&8 cell) grade A (PERFECT) embies- BFN again.
March 2011- February 2012: On BCP due to endometriosis.
March 2012- taking a few months off of BCP and we are TTC naturally.
We will re-evaluate another IVF w/FET try in 2013.
CD: 1 (I hate that number)
MA/Plan: Back to RE to see if my hormone levels are normal. If they are, we will likely be doing Tamoxifen with trigger, and a PCT on CD 11. If that is normal, then TI. If not, may convert to IUI.
How was your weekend?: Busy, but good!
CD: 27, 10 DPO
MA/Plan: Clomid 50 mg, IUI
How was your weekend?: Not long enough... but it was still good. Got a lot of stuff done around the house for once, since DH and I actually weren't completely busy.
Other news-- I finally got a teaching interview. It's for a temporary position for just this school year, which works wonderfully for how I'd *like* to see the future play out. Now all I have to do is get pregnant and can deliver after school is out, and then stay home with baby. Wouldn't it be great if we had some power over our plans like this?
Born 12/30/11 and absolutely perfect!
Name: Brandi CD: 8DPO MA/Plan: Au Naturale...no more MA until after January How was your weekend?: Ehhh...nothing special....just obsessing over IPS!
Anything else? Evan's EDD is on Sunday.........needless to say, this week is really gonna suck...Praying I AT LEAST get a on Sunday so I can have something POSITIVE (literally!) to associate with the month of September....
MA/Plan: Glucaphage and Clomid
How was your weekend?: Not long enough!
Anything else? (adoptions, news, anything!) I am new here and I have just started on the meds. We have been TTC for over 2 years with no progress, so decided to try the meds. I hope this will work for us.
