We have been TTC our 1st since July of 2003. WE waited 1 year before seeking medical assistance. Hopefully this will all be over soon.

Since July 2003

We've been TTC for over 6 yrs and saw an RE in 2000. We were told that I had PCOS and mild Endo, and DH had low morphology. Due to the number of cysts I had, I wasn't a candidate for clomid because there was a fear of having them rupture. So DH & I talked about it and felt that we would TTC on our own and leave it up to God.

I got pg on my own in Sept 05 but it was ectopic, and continued to have 2 more m/c's in 2006. After my 3rd m/c I called my old RE and got in to see her within 3 weeks. I went through a huge bunch of tests, scans, biopsies, and blood work. So I didn't really wait to see her.

When we were TTC during all of those years I changed my lifestyle and diet (i.e eliminated processed & refined foods, and started to exercise). My cycles started to regulate and AF was showing up every 34 days (whereas AF showed up maybe 2-3x per year!)
Thank you Claire1977 for my adorable siggy
For the special little one in your life!

well i have my son, whom we were just unsafe teenagers...then i went off the pill in may of 05 and go pregnant that same month..i ovulated 2 weeks after stopping the pill..that turned out to be a chemical pregnancy though and i lost that in june 05. Then we ttc for a whole year..i was seeing my ob who had me charting and we did s/a for dh who was fine and we did the cd3,10 and 21..my fsh #'s were great but my progesterone on day 21 was 5..we did one cycle of clomid in april of 06 and it didnt work. we decided to take the summer off. then in may of 06..exactly a year later i got pregnant. then had a blighted ovum in june of 06 ..we took off july because i had some elevated levels in my bloodwork and was told to see a high risk dr. he told me to up my folic acid and we'd be okay. well a few months went by and i got impatient..i made an appt. to see the RE in nov. we set up my HSG which i had this month and all that was normal. Oh and they retested all my levels that had been elevated and those came back normal too so the folic acid IS working..we had plans to do iui when af came next cycle..my consult is actually still scheduled for monday the 8th. If i really am pregnant..its been 6 months since my last miscarriage.
