Hi, this is my first time on here, so bear with me if i ramble a bit with tmi.

Where to start, well my husband and I have been ttc for 2yrs 8mths I am 23 and he is 27. We tried the old fashioned way, we tried Ov tests and still nothing happened. So we had all the fertility tests performed and I was diagnosed with PCOS and a stream of other dx's. My husband has a very low sperm count...first test was at 3million! We were using my OB-gyn as our doctor but thought she was wasting our time..she wanted to put me on birth control for 3 months and then see if we got pregnant...

So we went to an infertility specialist who informed me that I did not have PCOS and that I did ovulate (my normal cycles are a perfect 28 days) and that he thinks she did all the tests on the wrong days. His opinion was our lack of conceiving was due to my husbands extremely low sperm count. So we did one cycle of IUI this july and it didnt work. By this time we were both so exhausted and emotionally drained from ttc and medications and constant preg tests that we decided to just quit worrying and not even try to get pregnant for at least 3 months.

Well in Nov we decided to try another round of IUI..i was waiting for AF so i could start my meds when i noticed i was a week late. I took a preg test and it was POSITIVE!! Blood test said i was 5 weeks preg. We were soo happy and told anyone and everyone. 1st visit went great with OB. At 12 weeks exactly i started cramping and bleeding. Went to doc and ultrasound confirmed that there was no baby just a sac. We had what they call a blighted ovum. I was devastated. I had a d/c 2 weeks ago.

Right now we are just waiting for AF to show up in a couple of weeks, and then get back into the cycle of ttc. we are planning on using IVF this fall if we cant get pregnant on our own again. I pray to God that we can but you just never know if it will be that easy. I just feel so frustrated about my m/c i feel it was almost a cruel joke that i was "almost" preg...and then it was gone. So im hoping that conceiving will be alot easier this time around. We'll see.

I am very very ready to be pregnant again. Its only been about 2 1/2 weeks since i m/c but i want that feeling of being pregnant back soo bad Today at work I had to listen to a girl in my unit talk and talk about her baby (she was only 3 weeks ahead of me). She scheduled her sonogram for next week to find out what the baby is and all i kept thinking was I was supposed to be doing that soon too. Just seems so unfair that my baby is gone. I wanted a baby for so long. Its all i have thought about for the last 3 years. I was this close and now i have to start all over again. I pray to God that I get pregnant again very soon. I keep thinking about when i took the test and it was positive...that was the happiest day of my life. Took me 2yrs and 6mths to finally get a positive. I hope it doesnt take that long this time around.
