I just wanted to pop over here and introduce myself. I post over on the TTC#1 board but now I am starting my first month with Femara so I thought I would jump over here as well! I see some familiar faces here!

I am Elle (35) DH is Patrick (38) and we have been NTNP for a year but we really started TTC using opk's and a CBEM in July so it has been 6 months but we missed one month, so I guess we have really been TTC for 5 months now moving on to our 6th cycle. Either way we are not getting our BFP so we finally found a great OBGYN that specializes in fertility issues and he checked my progesterone levels and they came back at a 10 so he wants to start me at 5.0 of Femara on CD 3 - 7 for the next 3 months. DH is also having an SA done on Jan 3rd but we don't feel that is where the problem is. If the Femara doesn't work then I think we will move quickly to IUI and then IVF shortly after if no luck there.

I look forward to getting to know you all and to all our BFP's in 2011!!!

Thanks ~Nicole~ for my perfect siggy!

Hi Elle! Welcome to the board I'm Jen (32) and DH is Dean (32) and we've been TTC since October 2009. We've tried several months of Clomid, IUIs and 3 cycles of injectables so far with no luck. We're taking a break this cycle at the request of my RE since there were some follicles leftover from my last cycle he wanted to get cleaned out before we start again. My RE usually does 4 cycles of injectables before moving to IVF, however, I think we might try a few more injectable cycles since they cost so much less than moving to IVF.

In any case, welcome to the board. I hope your stay is short and sweet!

Welcome Elle!

I'm Kimberley and I just had my IVF baby 3 weeks ago. I hope that the Femara is all that you need to get your BFP!

Hi Elle and welcome! I hope that you don't have to be on this board long, but for the meantime, there's a lot of friendly folks on here if you need anything! Good luck with your Femara cycle!

I am hoping Femara does the trick as well but we all know how this can go so we are just taking it one month at a time! I have been thinking about trying Brandi's miracle baby recipe but I have a bladder issue that keeps me away from highly acidic foods so I am a little worried about the lemon tea. If this month is another then I may try it anyway, along with the Femara and just deal with the consequences.

I hope everyone has fun tonight and a great beginning to 2011!!!!

Thanks ~Nicole~ for my perfect siggy!
