Hello and happy Thanksgiving! I'm a long-time lurker (all the way back) and would really love to join you. I have a 3yo DD who was conceived on -yup- the first try. My mother had IF and only got me in 10 years of trying so I was sure I'd struggle. But, since #1 was so easy, I was all cocky about #2. Ha. We started trying hard in September 2011. I had a really early m/c in January and blighted ovum that passed about 9-10w in April. I see a great RE, and did two rounds of clomid, then took a hippy detour and just did TCM and ayurvedic practice - lost patience pretty quick 9 (two cycles), and just started a monitored cycle (went in today for cd3 too, TF). I've got an HSG scheduled for Monday (questions about that but I'll save them for a later post).
Just going to throw some comments I've had over the past few weeks out there, since that was all AFM above!
Bebe + Gtree- belated congratulations! Indie I hear you about it being a sickness! I was so chill this cycle, esp. with our super bad timing but by 8dpo I was convinced! (totally thinking about that frozen turkey baster while DH was traveling - kinda thinking it doesn't really work like that but thinking maybe we should invent something for that purpose?!) Lucile - hmmm.. Shell - really hoping to cheer you on in this remarkable process! Sherry - Love to know more about the house project! We just finished tiling our little master bath and I'm totally overwhelmed! :) Chrissy - I found similar stuff about homocysteine levels. I'm heterozygous for one of the MTHFR genes, and my levels are normal. The RE gave me the high-dose B Folbic, but I don't think it's critical unless you need to bring those levels down. SKJ - I have to say, I laughed so hard and cheered for you about what you said to the other mom about m/c#2. That's SO something I would say (then try to back pedal, as if you can do that after you've said "miscarriage"). All the best to those I missed. I genuinely hope it's OK to chime in - I know you ladies have a great thing going and I want to respect that.
