Wishing!!! I was just thinking about you today. I'm so glad you checked in and found us again--we have lost too many along the way. I just found Happy froggy again, too, and I hope she will rejoin us.

As far as how many are still TTC, I was just asking that last week and haven't got much response. There are still a few of us TTC naturally, several are going with ART of some kind... And there are a few we haven't heard from in a while, such as Faithful2 him. LK1123 lost another pregnancy, so she has left until further notice (I think they are pursuing adoption). Anyway, it's nice to hear from you again. Welcome back!

Hi wishing :) Good to see you. I am still TTC, it looks like DH and I will be pursuing IVF, we have our initial consult with the RE tomorrow, so our adventure is just about to begin.

(((Hugs))) I'm sorry things have been so rough for you.

Thank you awilliams- my doctor recommended the test just to see what the chances are although they are low, no matter what I would keep my baby. My insurance covers everything so I figure why not see what happens, although it does make me a little nervous. For everyone TTC I want to tell you I am still praying for you although I am pregnant now the memories of considering adoption or IVF are still very clear to me and I can still remember the pain I felt knowing I couldn't afford either for a long time. I just kept my faith and left it to God and I was lucky enough that he answered my prayers. I want you to know I am still praying for all of you. xoxoxox

I am glad to be back and to see how you all are doing!

I was started to feel very alone, in the " real world" with all of my friends and family having kids and not at all understanding what I have been/am going through. I know that even those of you who are now blessed with precious babies of your own, or who are currently pregnant still remember and can empathize.
On that note, congrats to those of you who have finally gotten there...you prove that there is hope!
Auberry2, do you have any idea of dates for you Ivf ?? I know that accepting that you need to take that route might not be easy, but when that beautiful face is smiling up at you, you won't care how you got him/ her. A colleague is now 6 months along after her first Ivf...she had been trying for 6 years previously!
Alice ...it is so nice to have people praying for you, even when they have never seen your face. These forums are a beautiful thing! What is your next step? Are you still trying naturally or are you combing anything with the metforim?
AFM....still waiting for :af: to show. 16 dpo. Bfn yesterday :cry:

TTCbaby#1.....if you are still around. I feel for you. I'm am there in that sad place as well...and have been for some time. It is so hard when you get such a good cycle, good follies and are tracked closely and still no results . Taking a break, is something that so many people have recommended to me....they say that many people get their bfp when they are not trying( hard to believe!!)
I have thought of taking one myself....but my adhesion situation ( they keep re- occurring and my periods Are super light) keeps me from doing so....I'm always on the clock,ttc before the next adhesion reappears. My lack of a real period sends me over the deep end each month.
I guess my speal is not very positive sounding...but I just wanted you to know...if you are still reading, that there is someone else ( plus the many other ladies I'm sure) who can relate and is here to talk, or just listen/read :) :hugs:

Welcome back Wishing, I'm still around, thanks for thinking of me!

Congrats MrsJessica-you look so beautiful and happy on your wedding day :)

I'm still checking in here and there, but trying hard to not try so hard (does that make sense?) We're really giving this "break" a go, and it's honestly been so nice not stressing. We've planned all kinds of fun stuff and we're just keeping busy! Hope you're all doing okay on this journey. I think of you all often and will check in here and there :)

Amy, we're still trying to go natural because it seems that it might be possible now. I do take vitex but that's it. If nothing happens we will just wait on God's timing, since we don't have money for any ART. I'm at peace...

Mrs Jessica, go for it if you think it might help. It would stress me out! But I didn't do ANY testing, so I guess I'm no judge, lol.

TTC, it's nice to hear from you again! Enjoy your break!

Well ladies, I am sitting in the RE's office waiting to get called back. I am feeling very nervous and kind of lonely, if that makes sense. Like Wishing said, no one in the real world seems to understand, and it is hard. I hope she calls us back soon, the waiting is nerve wracking.

Auberry...how did it go? What did the RE say?

I was at my RE today......plan "w"(....way past a,b,or c!) is to start some injectables with the femera....along with the progesterone after o. No Iui yet though....DH swimmers are fine and too pricey if not needed.
I still feel though like my questions were not answered.....like why is my period so incredibly light (only a day or two of spotting with cramping)? They tell me the scarring is gone but I am not convinced. Also, I am worried that the injections ups the risk of multiples, upping my chances of another m/c. I am suppose to get the meds tmr and start tmr night but I am still on the fence. I am feeling frustrated and not as hopeful:(
Thoughts?

Well, I love my RE. She is up front and explains everything thoroughly, and wasn't at all concerned about my weight. Today is CD10, so I missed the window to do my initial CD3 - CD5 blood work, I will be doing that the first week of May. I need surgery to remove my swollen fallopian tube and to make sure my left tube isn't swollen, which should happen sometime in May or June. I also qualify for a study my RE clinic is doing that will allow me to receive my stimulation drugs for free, which would be a gift from God, because this is expensive.

My DH will have a SA at the end of the month, as well.

So that is all for now. I am praying for doors to open up for this. And I am praying for all of you wonderful ladies, y'all have really been gifts from God in saving my TTC sanity :)

Auberry, that sounds like great news, they are getting the ball rolling fast! And wow, what a blessing to have to meds covered !!!! God led you to her for a reason...hopefully He will work through her to bring you that beautiful baby you are praying for :)

How is everyone else doing? I'm on day 2 or 3.... Can be sure of which because of my stupid light periods...they are. Counting the spotting as day one this month( against all rules, only because most months I don't get more than spotting) but this month I started with the same spotting, then it went to a day of light flow yesterday ( tmi...kinda light red, pinkish) and then hard cramping last night and this morning, now dark red flow! So now I am debating if I should start my next meds today or tomorrow ...I am suppose to start day 3. Ugh....I don't know what to be doing anymore:(

Hi Amy, I guess I don't have much to report. Sorry I haven't responded sooner--there's been a bunch of stuff going on in my real life, so TTC is kind of on the back burner. I can't imagine only having a couple days of spotting, and I guess I don't know how you should count your cycle days. Did you figure it out?

I'm still bleeding, but I think it might be showing down. I just want to be done with this old lining so I can get back to normalcy.

How is every one else?
