I'll start. My lap is two weeks away. After that we'll decide if we're doing IUIs or IVF.

Thanks for the new thread Pokey! Good luck on the lap rs11. Hope you heal up quickly.

No news on my end. Just waiting to bleed before starting this FET cycle.

Hope everyone is doing well.

pokeyac, will you move me to Waiting to Know? Timing of my insem was bad because of weekend shipping limitations, so likely I'll be back in Waiting to O within a week or so. My temp was a bit wonky because of travel, so FF couldn't pinpoint my O day with certainty, and last month, the Femara lengthened my LP to 16 days (from its usual average of 12), so I'm not 100% certain when my period is going to come around. It's like the good old days before temping, when it was all a grand (unpleasant) surprise....

36, hoping to have a new member of the family in 2015, to join my queer clan: Me , Things 1&2 , my long-distance KD/cheerleader (the guy who's been telling everyone what a great mom I'm going to be) , and the rest of the superheroes and sidekicks .

Hello! I wanted to come on here and introduce myself. I've been reading this forum for quite some time but since I'm close to ttc for the first time, I thought I'd take a more active role!

A little about us: I've been with my wife for 7 years but we just got married this February. I'm 27 and DW is 32 and we live in upstate NY. We've wanted to have kids for a very long time but had to wait for our lives to get settled first. We actually were planning on trying in June but then I got laid off (I'm a teacher) and found out that I have hypothyroidism so I have been working on getting a new job and balancing out my thyroid issue.

Our plan is to do our first IUI in August and we couldn't be more excited!

Hi, can I join in? I am a single mother to 3 children, 2 biological that live with me full time and a non-bio boy from my ex who is with me when it's my turn to have our kids. I am turning 29 in August and have realized that it's absolutely time to add to my family. My period came on July 9th and it felt like it was wrong to happen. I shouldn't be bleeding right now, I should be gestating. I also feel as if the spirit of my next baby is ready to come earthside. Just like I knew with my youngest son. Excited to become active on mothering again, though it's changed so much since my children were babies!

Thanks for the warm welcome pokeyac, I hope it is short and sweet too!

Welcome AugustLia! When do you think you'll start trying?

I got some awesome new on Saturday - my thyroid is stabilized and I am clear to start trying! I talked to my wife and we decided that even if I don't get a job we will still try in August. We will be buying the sperm August 1st

August and Dani: Welcome!

I got some good news from the RE yesterday: I ovulated on my own this month! Yay! The cysts are looking better too.

My lap is less than a week away.

Hi all! Thanks for the welcome!

I'm planning to try as soon as this upcoming ovulation. That should be on the 28th according to my period app. I just talked with my donor yesterday and got all big details squared away. He's ready and so am I. Yay!

rs11: That is great news! How awesome.

August: Good luck! Fingers crossed. I hope this is your month.

AFM: I hurt fairly bad from the lap, but it went as well as could be expected. My left fallopian tube is congenitally deformed, but my right is normal, so I can get pregnant off that tube. They also removed a small uterine polyp that is almost certainly benign but could interfere with implantation. The doc said we need to wait a month or so and then we'll be good to go.
