Hi, can I join in here?

My name is Ashley, DH is Eric and we have an almost 21 month old named Maddox. (He was a surprise) I was dx with PCOS about 5 months ago. I had surgery in Sept. to remove a 5cm cyst from my right ovary & a 4.5cm cyst from my left ovary as well as a lot of other small ones. Both cysts were complex so laproscopic surgery wasn't an option, so I was cut open on my son's csection scar. DH and I began TTC a few months ago so I started temping & taking opks only to find out I am anovulatory. So, after talking to my ob/gyn he has decided to start me on clomid. I am now waiting for provera to be called in so I can start a new cycle to start the clomid! Anyway, sorry for the lengthy intro, i've been lurking here for a while and feel like I already know a lot about some of you ladies.. so I felt you guys should know some of my story as well! I hope to get to know you all!

Congrats on starting to TTC again! I am a grad of MA, but I am wishing you all the sticky dust there is. I hope you have a short stay and get the BFP soon!

Welcome!!!

I am Ashley as well! I am 24 and my DH is 25 and we've been TTC for just over two years, with recurrent early losses. I also have an MTHFR gene mutation and a blocked right tube. We are TTC naturally right now until April-ish when we will move forward with IVF.

You will love it here, the girls are so sweet and supportive!

We live really close to one another DH is stationed at Ft. Leonardwood, MO.. we live right outside in St. Robert. I'll actually be in St. Louis tomorrow to pick up a friend at the airport We'll be moving in Feburary though I've met so many wonderful people here.. it sucks to start all over. Anyway, I'm so sorry to hear about your blocked tube and MTHFR mutation. A girl in my PR also has that. I've been following your story for a while cause I also know you from the photography board

I hope you get your sticky BFP super soon hun!!!
