I'm just throwing this out there...please let me know if you are excited about any of the following. If we have enough interest in these things, Ashley and I will try and make it happen!

* Group siggy or blinkie
* Monthly contests with blinkies for winners
* sub-forum for TTC #2, 3, etc.
* Book/TTC product reviews
* More info...like weekly seminars on different subjects to learn more about them

These are just ideas...please feel free to make other suggestions!

I like the monthly contests and possible a subforum for TTC #2 (or TTC after #1) depending if there is enough interest.

"Things I've still never figured out" thread, where oven the oldies post questions they still havent figured out (immune stuff, ivf protocols,tests to ask for)

I really think a financial sticky or subforum would be great- one place to read about companies that cover IVf, scholarships, ways to save, places to get meds for cheaper, etc. One place to read it all and discuss

Weekly comprehensive thread where we put up a poll of topics, let everyone pick one, and then we all discuss our experiences and tips and questions on that ONE topic. Cover all we can about clomid or clomid vs femara. How endo works, diagnosing it, how it damages fertility

I totally love the contest with blinkies for winners idea!

We talked about the TTC#2,3etc subforum and I already told you this...but I'd just be so worried the main board would lose a lot of posters if we did that. Dont get me wrong I think you guys deserve to have somewhere else to post, but im so worried it would slow down so much over here!

And I also love Laurens idea, a financial sticky. LOVE THAT. When I first found out I would need MA, I searched around for ideas on what everything would cost. I think we should poll everyone (because I know different areas have different costs for things) and make a sticky for that (Costs for everything, Clomid, Femara, IUI, ultrasounds, ...etc) I know its going to be a wide range, but like I said when I first got home from finding out we had all these issues I didnt even have a ballpark idea of all the costs!
Cycle #1-9 - All Natural....5BFN's, 4BFP's (all ended in miscarriage)
Cycle #10-11 - Met with first RE, diagnosed with heterzygeous MTHFR mutation & slightly low SA on all counts. -BFN, Cycle #12 - First IUI+Trigger - BFN, Cycle #13 - BFN
Cycle #14-15 - Met with new RE, diagnosed with a blocked right tube that previous RE completely overlooked or didnt care to mention. Soy (120mg) - BFN
Cycle #16 - Clomid (100mg) - BFN, Cycle #17 - Clomid (100mg)+Trigger+IUI - BFN
Cycle #18 - Acupuncture+Clomid (100mg) - BFN
Cycle #19-27 - 2 Soy (160mg) cycles, the rest all natural also 30lbs lost!! - BFN's
Cycle #28 - New RE is GREAT! Put on bcp 7/6/11, Lap surgery 8/1/11- Tubal cyst (5cm) found and removed, Uterine Septum removed, and Stage II-III endo removed. Cycle #29 - All Natural - BFN, Cycle #30 - All Natural - BFN, Cycle#31 - All Natural - BFN, DONE TTC FOR NOW

I love the blinkies idea. What about specific areas for specific questions about MA? Like a Clomid thread, a Femara thread, an IVF thread, IUI, trigger shots, etc.? -(Oh, I just saw Ashley said the same thing kinda) .. I like that idea!

financial sticky sounds AWESOME!

blinkie sounds good!

I also really like the weekly "seminar" idea.. I feel like I'd really benefit from something like this since I'm just now looking into real MA and such. I feel so confused with all the acronyms here! lol

I Definitely like the Financial sticky-good idea. I still like the ttc #2+ if people are interested. I definitely see it as more of a sub-forum, rather than a main part of this board. I think that I would still definitely post on the main part more.

Are people interested in doing "day in the life"? I always love seeing what people do/where they live/work...etc.
