Hi you all. I have been lurking around here for about a week or so, trying to figure out if I wanted to TTC #2. I will give you ladies a background of why I am looking to hang out here.

I have a son who is 19 months old. He was a miracle in my eyes. My DH and I had worked for over 8 years to have him and it took medical intervention to have him.

I was married in 2000 and after one year of TTC #1 I went to the doctor and he told me that I had nothing wrong after I had surgery to check out a suspicious ultrasound in 2001. All he could tell me was to lose weight. In 2003 I lost 110 pounds and still no positive test for a baby. In 2004 I lost my cycle all together and they prescribed Progestin. I got pregnant instead of regulating. I stopped the Progestin as it causes birth defects and a week later, I lost my baby. I had my DNC after an unsuccessful attempt to pass the miscarriage on my own. Three months later, I was diagnosed with a dermoid, a blood filled cyst and a cyst filled with endometrium all in my LO. I had surgery, but I lost my LO and only have my RO at this time.

I didn't have anymore positive tests and it was 2008. I wanted a baby really bad, so I went and got tests done. All my hormones were great except for Progesterone, as I expected was low. My DH also had only 4.5 million and they were slow moving on his tests as well.

The OB wanted me on clomid, but I declined. I used Prometrium and charted and conceived on the first cycle and that is when my Jojo was born. This I believe was a miracle and a stroke of luck. I have only conceived while on Progesterone.

Now I am on the venture to TTC #2 with secondary infertility and LPD. Even though the OB said that the first baby should have cleared up my LPD, it hasn't and it is now worse.

I plan on trying to use progesterone cream, vitamins and charting again, but I am so afraid of disappointment as I have had many negative tests and sad emotions from many undetected miscarriages since then.

I look forward to TTC actively and finding new friends who are dealing with similar issues. Thanks for listening

HI! I'm glad that you found us. You will find SOOO much support here while you are trying for your second miracle baby. I hope second time around is A LOT quicker than the first one ended up being. Are you going back in for more tests before starting out this time around?

Thank you everyone.

I have decided to try for a few months with progesterone only to see if anything on my chart changes before I go in for testing again. I tend to obsess about my numbers too much.

I was on Prometrium before and I was so exausted while taking them,but it did work the first cycle I took it. I hope that the cream works the same and I have fewer symptoms then last time.

I am mad that I won't get an accurate chart this month as I have been sick the last couple days.

If I don't conceive in 3 months then I will have another b/w test and go from there.

I am glad I found you ladies too. No one I know that is near me has gone through anything like this , so they don't understand the feelings behind not being able to conceive and also losing a baby to M/C.
