Hi all.....I am new here....well kind of, I used to post on some other boards a few years ago, but have re-joined Just Mommies again

This January we have bee TTC for 12 months now. We also have a nearly 3-year-old son. So when it came time for us to TTC for a second baby, we never thought we'd have any issues. Our son was conceived accidently in a very short amount of time, so we're a bit clueless as to why things just aren't happening this time round!

The last couple of months I've made some changes in my health. We're giving ourselves to the end of Januray to get pregnant before we go to the doctor. I've just finished my period, and this will be the first time I've used an ovulation predictor kit, so I started that today. And we've got a week before my husband goes away for work. So this week, we're deffinetly giving it everything we got!

If, however, I am not pregnant after this cycle, does anyone have any advice on what I should expect when I go to the doctor? What sort of tests will they do, etc?

Welcome I'm Marie, 25, been TTC #1 for 2 1/2 years.

Do you chart? Your doctor might ask you to chart, and bring them. They'll probably draw blood as well. Sperm test. Pap smear. That's what we had to do when we went on our first appointment.

TTC since August 2008

6w (may '13)
4w (dec '14)
7w/ectopic (nov '15)

i'm amy (31) and dh is francesco (28) and we've been TTC since july of 09. i agree with marie in that your doctor will probably ask you to start charting your BBT and to use OPKs. maybe you are Oing at a different time than you think? hope you get your BFP soon!
thank you bonnie (cavewoman) for my beautiful siggy!

cycles 1-16: TTC naturally, all BFNs
cycle 17 & 18: not TTC (due to diagnostic tests)
october 14: RE appt with follow-up hysteroscopy + saline sonogram... TUBES ARE CLEAR!
cycle 19, 20 & 21: natural TTC cycles = BFNs
cycle 22: another natural cycle, but preparing for our first IUI with injectables for cycle 23! FINALLY!!!
