Hi Ladies!
I have been lurking for a bit and wanted to take part in an active board, so I thought I would introduce myself. My name is Lindsay, DH (Chris) and I are trying to conceive our second child, we have a son that is 13 months named Parker. He is such a great kid, but we really think he'd do awesome with a sibling.
It took us a year and a half to get Parker, and to be honest he is our miracle baby. See I have PCOS and only one fallopian tube due to an ectopic pregnancy back in 2011. We went through 6 or 7 (can't remember how many now!) clomid cycles, 3 of which were IUI's, and only got a chemical pregnancy out of our last IUI. We decided to quit TTC for awhile, especially with medical assistance, and live our lives. The next month I took my usual progesterone to bring on my period because with PCOS I never ovulated on my own so I rarely got periods. Well the progesterone didn't work. I found it odd, but gave it a few more days. I decided to test before DH got up on a Sunday morning and the two lines came up blaring right away. I screamed, I cried, I laughed. We saw our little guy for the first time 2 days later - on our first wedding anniversary I had some complications with Parker towards the end, he was growth restricted in the womb and we very easily could've lost him if we hadn't caught the problem and weren't closely monitored. He was born at 37 weeks at only 4lbs 13oz. He had a 10 day NICU stay, but now he is doing wonderful and SO smart and active.

So now we would love another! We have been NTNP since my cycle started to come back by itself in October. I lost 15lbs and my PCOS decided to let me ovulate on my own again lol. I've noticed I start spotting at about 7 or 8 DPO though so I'm wondering if my luteal phase is messed up. Hoping it's nothing and I can still get that longed for BFP. I ovulated today (I have VERY noticeable ovulation pain, plus pos OPK yesterday), so the TWW begins! I'd love to hear some background about all of the ladies in here! Hoping to see a ton of BFP's in the upcoming weeks!

Always remembering our angel babies - 4/2011 (ectopic), 4/2012 (chemical) and
Angel Twins 5/23/14 (at 7 weeks 2 days)
