@kristine, I'm sorry to hear the not so good news and I hope you have a sticky little bean like Kandii said. I am glad you are now here on the board :)

Hello, ladies! I'm new here on the board. TTC #1 with my BF, on our first cycle of trying. I'm CD 15 and have been doing the BD every day to every other day. :P Hoping we can get it first go around, but of course I've been lurking and have seen time and again that it doesn't always happen right away. Babydust to you ladies still trying and congrats to the ones who got their sticky babies! So far, we're not trying OPKs or BBT charting. Just lots of BD on fertile days. I'm thinking go it natural and then if it takes longer than a few cycles, we can look into OPKs and BBT charting to help. Ovulation pain today, so FX! Looking forward to the TWW and posting with y'all.

Hey ladies!!
French a boy!! Congrats! They are a handful! Hayden will be 4 months on Friday. Been a roller coaster ride. I wish I could explain to you how your life will be flipped upside down, but until your holding that little baby French there is no way to explain it. You will become a totally different person. And sometimes its hard. But just remember, you will make it!!
Sometimes they reveal gender when you get your NT scan done (genetic testing for Downs Syndrome) My hubby and I didn't find out until I was 18 weeks.
I would also highly recommend sticking with your Nov2015 due date club even after the baby. My March 2015 DDC has stuck together and they are my biggest form of support. Cause we are all learning together!

Welcome hellzbellz! Be patient, it will happen. I got pregnant fairly quickly once I stopped BCP (had been taking for 9 years) but that pregnancy ended in miscarriage. It doesn't happen to everyone, but happens more often then people like to acknowledge. Baby dust to you!

I am glad I have people to talk to that will be real with me, that is all I really ask! Can't believe your baby is 4 months old already, I am glad you were able to pop back on over to the board to say hi. I am hoping that some of our long lost friends will log in and give us an update :)

Hey ladies, I've been away from the boards a while but it was nice to see a few recent posts from you, Frenchie and Kandii! You both have/will have boys, that's so fun! I'm still ttc, closing in on the 2 year mark. I'm on my first clomid cycle now and have a dr appointment today to see how everything's going in there.

Yes, the analysis turned up an agglutination. All the numbers were good but the sperm stick together not allowing them to swim free. It must not be all of them since the dr thought we could do a few cycles of timed intercourse. Dh is also on mucinex as it should thin out even his semen. I had the trigger shot on Monday (with 2 beautiful follicles on the left side!) so we will see what happens!

Also, I have to say it's really nice to come back to the boards to some old friends :)
