Hey ladies hope you don't mind if I join you? My name is Tiffany and we have been ttc for 3 years. We are dealing with MFI and praying for a miracle. DH has been taking fertilaid and count boost for 8 months or so, although not consistently (he's hates the way they taste). I don't have any known issues, and have two older kiddos (Ashlyn 11, Brandon 14). I had an hsg done in November and got pregnant right after, unfortunately mc'd at 5 weeks. So yes you can get pregnant with MFI, it just takes a lot longer. I got pregnant by having less frequent bd. I think I only bd'd 2 or 3x in my fertile period instead of 8+. We are trying that again this cycle.

DH does not have any kids of his own (very long story lol). He's going to be 40 this year, so we need to get the ball rolling. I'm on CD 8 right now, and took soy isoflavones cd 2-6 (natural clomid). I also have been drinking 8oz of grapefruit juice, temping, and using soft cups this cycle. I do O on my own, but wanted to take SI after reading all the success stories.

I have a feeling this is going to be a very lucky thread! Hoping and praying that all of us get our bfp's asap. It's so nice being able to lean on you ladies, and I want you all to know I'm here for you as well. After my loss, I've been pretty down in the dumps from time to time. I prayed to God for 3 years for that baby, and it was ripped from me. 3 years of hoping, praying, temping, testing, time, and money all down the drain. I am blessed for the people I do have in my life, including my 2 kids. I pray you all get to experience motherhood. I was so young when I had them, and now that I'm older (32) and ready for a baby, I can't get pregnant. Lol isn't that life though? Fx for all of us, and so glad I found you all. -Thank you danaa for this thread and inviting me!

Welcome Leilani! You have had quite the road as well. Life definitely throws curve balls to us.I am so sorry to hear about your loss. So you drink the grapefruit juice too? What is the trick with the juice? I tried the pineapple core one month.

Let's get going Danaa! Fx for your cycle!

Me - I took another O test and it was negative. So I am waiting to O and then go in for the iui.

FX for this lucky ghread :-)

Thanks girls!! The secret with the grape juice is it helps with estrogen the first half of your cycle. It makes cm extra fertile and I totally think it helped me get my bfp. DH has poor sperm (like siggy says), so I think it helped. Also try soft cups. I used soy isoflavones this cycle and got a + opk today cd 10!!! I'm currently having O pains right now, super early I know! I guess we will wait and see what happens.

It's impossible for me to relax haha. I tried everything to relax, and after 3 years I've accepted that I can't do it. Is your DH on any supplements/vitamins?

My husband took for a while bcomplex and vitamin E and something else but I forgot,his swimwers were ok so I didn't pushed with the vitamins,I took tons and it didn't helped!!I actually realized that I won't be ttc this cycle,like actively trying bcs i just can't deal with the heart ache and the stress,is too much,DH cousin is due to give birth in the next months and his cousin gf will give birth next month so imagine me getting my period around that time,it will kill me!!I think im giving up.......

Danaa and Leilani - relax is really hard to do in our situations.

Danaa - I'm sorry you are feeling down. Taking it easy for 1 month is not a bad idea. Especially if you will be around stressful situations. But we will get through all of this and have our own miracles. Hang in there girl!

I have to spend 2 weekends in a row with my pregnant cousin-in-law who is due in March. Talk about a stab to the heart and stomach. She is much younger too, which doesn't help.

Well I will be 36 in April. She is not over 30, maybe 28 or 29 at most. I found out that my co-workers son's gf is pregnant out of wedlock. ALso learned of another cousin expecting and close family friend just had their second. It is all around me. DH says that we should be supportive and I agree. But it is so hard. I have given up on natural for us. Although, we do the bd occasionally around O time just because miracles do happen. But we don't expect anything.

Have you been trying iui? It has to be difficult for you too. I mean unexplained is unbelievable. I can't believe they can't explain. Sorry. Meds, vitamins, charting, testing, it gets exhausting and heart breaking after some time because nothing seems to work.

Let's hope something beaks soon for all of us.
