Infertility board


You are all so sweet. Thank you so so much for asking about me. This is the first time that I have checked the boards in a long time. Life got really busy and hectic there for awhile. Honestly though, I think it was good for me to take a break. Of course I missed all of you wonderful friends and you were never far from my thoughts. I have been praying hard for all of you.

Mady - Thank you for starting this post and thinking about me. You've really touched my heart. :) I believe that you were doing injectables when I was here last. How is that going?

Princess - Of course I remember Seejay LOL :D. Thank you for for the well wishes. I am happy and doing a lot better than I was when I first found this board, but I would be much happier if that BFP would find its way to me and all of you beautiful ladies. I see that you are to have a post-op appt soon. Please tell me how you have been doing.

Holly - DH and I are doing well. I hope the same is for you and BF. Thank you for your thoughts. I think you are waiting for your next IVF cycle. I am wishing that your wait will be short and that this will be the one. In the meantime I will continue to send you tons of babydust. :D

Amy - Thank you for wondering about me. I've been wondering about you too. Your story gives me so much hope. How's your little bean? How have you been feeling lately? I will be praying for you and your family.

So, here's an update on me. We did another cycle of 100mg of clomid that didn't work. That was the second try after my MC in July. We met up with my RE a few weeks ago to talk about what to do next and it was decided that I would get an HSG done to make sure that my utersus and tubes were clear and that we would try one more cycle on 100mg clomid. The HSG (last tues) went well and everything looked normal and clear. I am now on cd18 and I actually got a positive OPK on cd16, so now we're in the dreaded 2ww. (Big Sigh)

If this doesn't work we'll move on to a clomid and follistim combo. We were given a demo kit to practice with just in case. I must admit that when I first saw the needle I got a little woozy, but a little poke isn't too much for me to take if that means it will help me get my little miracle. I know you all understand that. :)

Thanks again for making my day brighter you guys. :) I promise to check in more often from now on. I really feel like I'm in a good place now. GOOD LUCK to everyone this cycle. I'm sure that we're all closer to our dreams!
