Please keep this positive info coming, ladies... I just had to join the TTC 12+ months club and I'm hoping that I'll be graduating to a DDC sometime soon. It's hard to stay positive but I feel much better after reading all of your stories.

Alice, I hope you graduate soon, too. I had just about given up hope myself (but, I mean...of course kept on doing the deed!) when it happened for us. I had even started making serious plans to change grad school programs and other such life changes, so it really caught me off guard and I had to change my plans once again, but I think we've all learned that "planning" life in general is a joke, eh?

Hi Alice! I remember you from the TTC boards. I'm sorry that you're still waiting. I know how you feel about trying to stay positive, it is so hard. I didn't wait as long as some - we got pregnant just after 12 months of trying. And we had actually decided to start having testing done the next month, but instead I found out I was pregnant.

Lots of baby dust for you!!

Kemi, I just wanted to say CONGRATS on the babe, he is adorable!!

Gillian, CONGRATS to you too mama!!!

You can see our little miracle in my siggy, he's 6 months old now. The 21 cycles and all the meds to get him here seem like a thing of the past now. We're still totally in love with him.

Oooh I never saw this thread before

I will tell my ever-amusing pregnancy stories.

The first time it took us just shy of 2 years to get pregnant successfully. After 18 months I went to a reproductive endocrinologist. She determined I was probably ovulating fine, based on an u/s and the fact that I had very regular 28 to 29 day cycle. We did a semen analysis on my husband and found he had a relatively low sperm count, (28 million sperm per mL versus a normal count which is more like 55-90). The doctor still called our infertility "unexplained" since I was so young (I was 21 at the time) and really should have gotten pregnant by that point. She put me on Clomid but I reacted badly to it so we tried Femara. I got pregnant and it was ectopic (this was December 2003).

At that point, I gave up. We had several stressful things happen during that period, and we weren't getting along very well. I decided to go out, have fun with my friends, enjoy my youth and just give up on having babies. Well, I promptly got pregnant (Feb/March 2004) . I think we had sex TWO WHOLE TIMES that entire month. After years of doing it at least every other day! Obviously it was meant to be.

So the second time, we were sure it would be 6-12 months of trying at least. I was aiming for my kids to be 24 months apart. We started trying when #1 was 7 months old and got pregnant right. away. I'd only had like two post partum periods, I wasn't even sure I was ovulating yet! Obviously I was

This time around, we started trying in Jan of 2008. I got pregnant in late Feb, but had to have a D&C in April due to a blighted ovum We kept trying and nothing. NOTHING! I took herbs at one point, did everything including the 'not trying but not preventing' thing, but couldn't get pregnant. It was baffling to me a little, to flip from being ultrafertile to not very fertile. Well, I started having health problems in October so we gave up TTC for awhile. I called my OB for a prescription for the pill, but when it was prescribed to me in November, I'd just had my period. I was waiting for December's period to roll around so I could start the pills.

And uh, that period never came I knew I was pregnant too becuase I had a dream that I was turning test after test positive! Again it was a situation where we'd had sex only two times, and we deliberately avoided my fertile days (obviously not very well!). So this time around, it took just barely shy of 12 months to get pregnant successfully, although I'm not sure if it totally counts since we were NOT trying the last two months. This baby was a surprise, but a wanted surprise nontheless. It's been tough though, becuase I don't think my body was prepared. I have to tough it out with my TMJ pain, my bipolar is better so that's nice but I can't take my bipolar meds either, and I get HG in pregnancy, probably even worse this time becuase my liver wasn't quite up to the task.

I still can't figure out why I get pregnant sometimes and not other times. I never get pregnant when I think I will. It's a crapshoot!

Congrats to all you mamas who tried foreverandever and are pregnant now!
