Hey ladies:

I'm not sure if anyone remembers me. I frequented this board a lot in the past. I have a DD who is 2.5 and was conceived with MA. Last year, DH and I were pregnant 3 times but lost all, 2 early miscarriages and the last one was ectopic. The ectopic has me terrified. I didn't have to do any medical intervention to clear the ectopic, it cleared on it's own.

DH and I finally decided to try again. We dont' have the insurance we had last time around so we are being conservative. I'm just taking Femara and hoping for the best. Our RE wanted to go another HSG - but DH nixed it because it was going to be $2000.00 out of pocket. This is our 1st cycle trying. I didn't do temps or OPKs, but I did monitor my CM. On CD 17-19 I had EWCM. DH and I BD'ed every 48 hours from CD 11 on. lol. I'm thinking I O'd on either CD20 or CD21 - which isn't unusual from my earlier cycles.

So that's gets us to now. Roughly 6dpo. I'm a wreck. Every little cramp I feel I immediately start worrying that it's an ectopic again. I thought I was having some pg symptoms a few days ago (tender bbs, extreme thirst) - but by now, I've learned my lesson on trying to figure out symptoms and just rely on tests.

Anyway, I'm not tryign to be a downer. I just thought I'd try to get re-involved and connect with people who are going through the same thing.

Hi - Welcome back. I wasn't here when you where here last. It is pretty cool to see when success stories come back and are ready for some support again. Sorry you are having troubles again and I don't even know what to say about your losses that will do any good at all, but I am looking forward to getting to know you.

What worked for you the first time for your DD? You must know Melissa then cause her DS is about the same age as yours. I am sure she will pop in here to say "hi".

Thanks Ladies! I conceived DD using Femara and trigger. Because we aren't paying for the u/s follie checks, we aren't doing the trigger. We'll just see how it goes. And yes, I do know Melissa. We were in the same DDC - twice actually.
