Hi,

We have been trying Since October, so that's 6 months. Our youngest baby is 8 already. We thought we were done... then I flirted with the idea for a few months and now DH is fully on board! Now if only the sperm will find that golden egg. :fertilization:

Hi I have 3 children from my first marriage ages 23,20, and 19. I had found a wonderful man about 11 years ago that had no children of his own so after raising my 3 and getting them graduated and settled in to the next chapters of their lifes, I had a Tubal Reversal in Dec 2012 the month I turned 40 y/o. So this is our 4 cycle of TTC, I was pregnant for about 11 days in March but it never progressed and at 5 weeks I lossed the pregnancy :(

So now we are trying again!

TTC #1 from Wedding day (Novemebr 1, 2003) until February 2008 when I had my first preganncy and MC at 6 weeks 2 days (on Valentine's Day). That proved i really COULD get pregnant! So I changed jobs, lowered commute from 1 1/2 hours daily and 16 hour work days/ 6 days a week to 15 minute commute 40 hour work week so stress virtually non existent (although it took me 3 1/2 years to get back up to the same salary I use to get ... worth it!). Dragged DH to see RE in September 2009, did cycle #1 with femara and timed intercourse (nada) then IUI with Femera and BINGO ... 39 weeks later we had our precious miracle baby.

TTC # 2 - DS was 8 months old went back to RE ... had 2 IUIs with injectables and Femera and was pregnant but MC 6 weeks, 6 days later (on Mother's Day) ... tried 6 more IUI's all negative (RE wanted us to do IVF after 3 failed IUIs but we couldnt afford it) and RE said I needed donor eggs or adoption .. crushed. So DH agreed to try naturally ... I am seeing a fertility naturopath, lost 15 lbs this year, eating heathier, little stress and desperately trying to see why we were diagnosed with unexplained fertility when DS sperm above average, no blocked tubes, no polyp, no cycsts, no implantation issues, progesterone above average in LP (with the use of prometrium RX), Oing regularly, no food intolerances preventng implantation .... the list seems long but the way I look at it the more I know why we CAN'T get pregnant also makes me that much closer to find out what CAN make us pregnant.

Hello girls! I'm 39 1/2, DH is 41. Started TTC#1 April 2012 and nothing so far. Went for tubal tests last week, everything's normal and unblocked, 18 follicles in total. My biggest problem is DH, he refuses to do SA, he's not that dedicated to the process, and this gets me incredibly stressed. And I have to hide my stress, because the more stressed I get, the less interested he is. It's a mad game!
Good luck to everyone!
