Hi everyone,
My name is Barb and I'm 31 years old. My husband (Chris) and I have been married for 5 years. We started ttc'ing right after we got married. I have PCOS so we thought I would have to go on Clomid. So we were shocked when I got pregnant in December 2000 naturally. I lost the baby on February 14, 2001. We stopped ttc'ing for awhile. We would ttc off and on for the next few years.
In March of 2004 I went on Clomid. I got pregnant right away. For the next two months we were back and forth to the doctors with ultra sounds. The baby wasn't developing. It was blighted ovum. I lost that baby on May 15, 2004. We again stopped for a bit.
In July, 2004 I was diagnosed with bi polar. I was going through a lot with ttc'ing. Should we even have children? I didn't want to pass it on. I was thinking of going on birth control pills. I actually was waiting to get my period. One Sunday morning I had a dream of a baby girl. I went to Target and got a pregnancy test. It was positive. The next day we got even better news. We were pregnant with twins. Two weeks later we found out we lost one. I had to take progesterone in the early part of the pregnancy. Then I found out I had gestational diabetes. At the end we had to go to the doctor's twice for non stress tests. I was induced and then had a c-section. We have a beautiful 5 month old girl.
My husband and I have talked it over and we are ttc'ing for number 2. We've been through so much we want to start again so we don't have to go through it all again if possible.
Thanks for listening. Hope to get to know you all.

You sound like a very strong woman, Barb. I hope you conceive soon! My husband and I have also been married for about 5 years and are working on our second. You are definitely due for some good luck!!

Welcome to JM! It sounds like you have been through a lot to have your little one. I had a hard time getting pregnant with my first (we had two miscarriages and one ectopic pregnancy). I am really glad you found us. We have a great board for TTC with PCOS.

Visit us at the Am I Pregnant board.
