I don't know if this has been done recently, if it has I missed it and am sorry, but I thought it might be nice for everyone to post their brief TTC(MA) history here. I know as a n00b it would help me understand everyone's story better. I'll start with mine:

I spent something like 6 years on various types of birth control, mostly the pill. I came off of it when DH and I decided to TTC. It took us 13 months, but we got pregnant on our own. I carried to term, but due to complications, he spent his five days in the NICU and never made it home. About seven months later, I was pregnant again, only to have a very early miscarriage during the fifth week. A few months passed and I started the period from Hell -- I'd been bleeding 5 weeks and finally went in to see an RE, hoping he could help regulate my body (my cycles had always been irregular) and speed this process along. I mean, January marks three years we've been waiting to have a family. He prescribed 100mg Clomid, 2mg Estradiol, Ovidrel for trigger, and 200mg Progesterone suppositories 2x/day for 14 days. This seemed to work, as I got my BFP! But it turned out to be chemical. Right now I'm waiting for AF and doing the same regimen in hopes I get my sticky bean soon.

With us on earth for five short days, with us in our hearts forever.
