Hi, I've been on and off this site for several years but never registered and introduced myself.

I posted this in the 20's sub category the other day but think i should've posted it here? :doh:
I really love how informative and helpful everyone is here (I've stalked other sites too but like this one the most)

Name/Partner's Name: Hope and Waylon
Age/Partner's Age: 28 and 26
How long have you been together: Married 7 years, together 10 years
Do you have children, if so how many and ages: 4 furbabies all dogs; Hallie 5yrs pit bull, Falkor 2yrs shepherd mix, Charlie 2yrs basset mix, Angel 2yrs mini schnauzer mix. They're our children.
How long have you been TTC: 7 years
Do you (or your partner) have any infertility issues: I went off BCP in 2006 to give my body time to readjust before our wedding. We actively charted BBT for 2 years and then decided to stop stressing about it and just see what happens.. which was nothing. This last cycle my BIL's gf and I missed the same period (our cycles have sync'd) but a week later when I started late (which had never happened and I was certain this was it) she got a BFP and I was reminded how badly we want a child. I had put it in the back of my mind and stopped thinking about it a few years ago to dull the pain of AF after AF..
What are your TTC plans for 2014: (fertility meds, supplements, OPKs, BBT charting, NTNP, etc,) I just bought a new thermometer and will start tracking again. Going to pick up some softcups and preseed (I believe that's what it's called). Then were going to start with the basic him in a cup, me in stirrups at the start of the new year if nothings happened yet.
Me:28
Hubs:26

Age/Partner's Age: both 27
How long have you been together: almost 3 years
Do you have children, if so how many and ages: no trying for #1
How long have you been TTC: 4 months
Do you (or your partner) have any infertility issues: all tests so far have been good, going for my Sono HSG after my upcoming AF on October 15/16
What are your TTC plans for 2014: (fertility meds, supplements, OPKs, BBT charting, NTNP, etc,) : I'm going crazy after 4 months so probably IUI with shots (don't want to waste time) and then straight for IVF, we want 3 kids and I want to be done soon
Anything about yourself you want to share: I'm handling this TTC thing very poorly, I've become very depressed, I cry all the time, I never thought I could cry so much and everyone around me is getting pregnant in 1 cycle which is devastating news for me
Me & DH- 27
TTC for #1 since July, 2014
CP - March 2015
Mild male factor
Karotyping - Normal
IVF : April-May Antagonist Protocol

Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.

Name/Partner's Name: Sam and Kevin
Age/Partner's Age: both 29
How long have you been together: 10 years together, Married October 2011
Do you have children, if so how many and ages: none yet
How long have you been TTC: Since April/May 2014
Do you (or your partner) have any infertility issues: Probably
What are your TTC plans for 2014: (fertility meds, supplements, OPKs, BBT charting, NTNP, etc,) Our plans, indefinitely, are just to BD at the right time every month, as much as possible. If we can't have kids naturally, then we won't be having any. Natural family planning methods are all we're allowed, as I am a devout Catholic. Vitamins and supplements, as well as charting, will hopefully help us along the way.
Anything about yourself you want to share: This has been a much longer and harder road than I anticipated. I just ask that God grants me the patience to get through this, and the strength to deal with whatever comes our way.
Me (Sam): 30
DH: 30

Together: 11 years
Married 4 years (October 15)

TTC since 4/14
One MC 5/14
One fur baby, Rosie, a 5 year old rescued bull terrier/blue heeler mix

Age/Partner's Age: 23/31
How long have you been together: 3.5 years married for 4 months :)
Do you have children, if so how many and ages: none
How long have you been TTC: 2 years .. but really 1 year as he works away 1 month on 1 month off
Do you (or your partner) have any infertility issues: low progesterone for me, he is all good to go.
What are your TTC plans for 2014: I'm on day 3 of provera before i start my first round of clomid, hopefully get pg before the end of the year, fingers crossed.

Anything about yourself you want to share:

I would love to hear of peoples stories on clomid with a similar situation to mine.

all my hormones are ok apart from progesterone and my partners sperm is good. The doctor gave me a scan and said every thing looked good too. My periods are irregular though so it is almost impossible to tell if/when i am ovulating, so I am glad the doc has decided to put me onto clomid :)

Hey every :)

My name is Tyler and my husband would rather me not share his name. He is 23 and I am 22.

We were together when we were very young, went our separate ways and found ourselves back together and married when I was 19.

I have two beautiful step children who are 4 and 5. We have both of them all the time minus every other weekend. We ttc for nearly two years after we got married. At one year I was put on clomid for two cycles with no success. Shortly after we got pregnant and had a miscarriage just over a year ago at 5 weeks. It was all just to much and we stopped trying. I'm overweight but have made lifestyle changes in the last couple months and have lost 15 lbs. Last cycle I noticed that I ovulated on my own which is a huge thing! We are now ttc again. Fingers crossed.

Hello. Here's my stats ;-)

Name/Partner's Name: Hazel and Andrew
Age/Partner's Age: I'm 29, he's 35
How long have you been together: 8 years, married for two years come April.
Do you have children, if so how many and ages: None, just one kitty and two horses (mine, not his - he'd rather have a cow!)
How long have you been TTC: Since June 2014
Do you (or your partner) have any infertility issues: Not been TTC long enough to be able to find that out yet, UK rules are wait a year of TTC before heading to Dr
What are your TTC plans for 2014: (fertility meds, supplements, OPKs, BBT charting, NTNP, etc,) I'm taking vegan prenatals, vegan DHA (Omega 3 - any vegans who haven't researched this please do so), just started DH on a general vitamin/mineral supplement, BBT, OPKs and Preseed
Anything about yourself you want to share: We live in the UK. I am vegan and have done SO MUCH research into vitamins/minerals and where I can get what from my diet and what I choose to supplement. I advise everyone to do this, even if you think you know all you can about diet/vitamins, etc. - there's always one more website or book or forum to read that may just give you an extra piece of info!

Baby dust to all. :-)

Name/Partner's Name: Becca 31/
Age/Partner's Age: Aaron 38, almost 39
How long have you been together: Started dating in 2006, married in 2010.

Do you have children, if so how many and ages: none :(
How long have you been TTC: 8 cycles, IUD out april 22nd, 2014

Do you (or your partner) have any infertility issues: Not sure yet, but getting some tests done soon.

What are your TTC plans for 2014: Keep better track of cycle and ovulation by getting a clearblue easy ovulation detector (anyone use that and find it works?)? or starting to chart BBT. Aaron is getting his sperm tested. I will have a pap smear coming up but need to find a new midwife or gynecologist and will discuss next steps with whomever I settle on. I have a cycle that is a bit all over the place so nailing down when I am ovulating is my first goal.

Anything about yourself you want to share: I know we only just started TTC but this process is hard and I am glad there is a place I can seek guidance and talk to others who get it.
