We got pregnant the first cycle with both my ds and dd. I am most likely moving to cycle #11 with this baby. We did conceive on the second cycle of trying with baby #3 but we miscarried a week later. Nothing since then. I'm not sure why this time is taking so much longer.

<p>Hey y'all!  Welcome back!!  I know it was only a day, but I missed you guys! <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com//images/smilies/smile.gif"></p>
<p> </p>
<p>showurhorns - I got pregnant with my son on our first try.  I'm now on cycle 12 of TTC #2.  It's bizarre how it can seem so easy one time and so difficult later!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>AFM - My HSG is scheduled for Tuesday afternoon.  DH is going to call in for a substitute that day, so he'll be able to go wtih me.  Yay!  I'm going to email my RE and find out when I should schedule my post-HST appointment so that we can talk about our options. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I renewed my gym membership yesterday.  I've pretty given up on exercise over the past 6 months or so.  I've gained some weight and I'm not proud of it.  I went to the gym this morning and did my time on the treadmill.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm considering training for a half-marathon in March.  I wanted to do it last year, but didn't sign up for it because I was SO sure I would be pregnant by then.  How sad is that?  Now I'm considering that I very well may not be pregnant by this March.  *sigh*  Oh well.  It looks like an awesome half-marathon and I really would love to participate in it.  Maybe my goal should be to do it, pregnant or not.  If I'm pregnant, I can walk some or all of it.</p>

<p>It seemed liked more than a day!! I kept checking to see site was back up and telling myself it can not take thaaaaat long. LOL</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Callie and Callieollie- It is crazy how it all works. Personally getting old sucks for that reason. Granted I was only 28 when started TTC w/ #3. 16 and 21 was A LOT easier in many ways. Hoping turning 35 will be kind to me. Can't believe I just said 35! I am not a person that is concerned with age per say. But I can't believe it happened so quickly. Perky boobs and a flat belly seems eons ago.</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>dpo11- Kinda nausea this morning. I am thinking maybe it just drainage (dang allergies) Headache and full boobs. I won't test until the 17th if needed. Trying to refrain from obsessing.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>My 41 yr old friend just found out she was p/g. She wasn't very excited. She thought maybe menopause was in her near future. I couldn't help but laugh. Just as you get comfortable in life God throws you a curve.</p>

<p>Hey Ladies!!!  YAY for MDC being back. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I hope your HSG goes well Callie.   ~~HUGS~~~ about the marathon.  I had so many plans & things I set aside because I was so sur eit wouldn't take this long too.  It's so frustrating!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm CD3 today, still waiting for the Dr. to call back.  I called, and the nurse said the message "is on his desk".  I'm SOOOOO PI$$ED now.  It's noon, and leave in 1.5 hours for work.  I will need to leave in an hour to go to the pharmacy *IF* he calls, which I don't think he's going to today.</p>

I must have checked MDC a dozen times yesterday. It felt like more than a day. <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com//images/smilies/smile.gif"> I'm on CD 40 here, still no AF, still nauseous every day, still no positive test. I'm just playing the wait-and-see game at this point.

<p><span style="text-decoration:line-through;">I just decided to go ahead and test again... just felt like I needed to since it's been a couple days. Lo and behold, I got a BFP! The second line is faint but definitely there. I'm so happy and relieved. <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com//images/smilies/smile.gif"> Thank you all for letting me be apart of this thread for these past couple weeks. It has been so helpful just to have a place to type out what I'm feeling. Now I'm crossing my fingers and hoping beyond anything that I can *stay* pregnant!</span></p>
<p> </p>
<p>I started spotting on 11/19, bleeding heavily on 11/22 and confirmed miscarriage on 11/23. Dh and I are very upset, just trying to get through this and concentrate on trying again in a couple of months.</p>

<p>Congrats Lakin24!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm CD4 today, and I have NO MEDS!  The Dr. STILL hasn't called back, I'm calling again today.  Words cannot describe how angry I am.  I've been having a hard enough time lately, and this only makes it worse.  </p>

<p>Well, I heard back from the nurse.  He won't prescribe anything but Clomid, and said it was up to me to find my own RE, and let them know who & when my appt. is, so they can fax my info to them.  How very F-ing helpful.  You guys have no idea how friggin' mad, angry, and pi$$ed off I am.  I don't know what to do. </p>

That sucks! Where are you?  I can help you find one. (I have PCOS and belong to another board where getting the right RE is essential.  I'll look at recommendations.)<br>

<p>Hi ladies!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I am semi-new to the boards and just jumping right in!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I am 31 and my DH (45) and I are TTC our first together (I have a ten-year-old son from a previous marriage). This is our first cycle trying and I am 8 DPO. I chart CF and temps using TCOYF program. I am taking a FRER on Saturday, we shall see what it says! We have had two early miscarriages: in 2005 (6 weeks) and in 2008 (>2 weeks).</p>

<p>Hi,</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I wanted to introduce myself. I am 32 and DH is 37. We are on our 14 month ttc. I have a son who is 8 from a previous marriage. He has two daughters who are 13 and 11 from a previous marriage. We started ttc after a month of marriage. Boy has it put a strain on it, but I think we are back on track. We had two losses one in Jan pretty much right after a positive test. Also one in May at about 6 weeks along. Went to a fertility specialist. He said that I am not ovulating which I already figured as my average cycle is about 80 days! and DH sperm count is great. So I am lucky for that. I am on my 6th cycle. I am on day 14. I always seem to have ovarian pain and it is constant and til I ovulate, which is very late or never. I have tried clomid once. It made the ovulation pain really bad. and I ovulated day 24...with no pregnancy. I cant handle that pain again. I have had my ovaries scanned twice during the ovarian pain.. there are no cysts thankfully. And lots of eggs, which is great:)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I have had my progesterone, fsh and lh tested. They are supposedly normal. I am not sure what to believe, because normal can be different for everyone. Last cycle I used progesterone cream to start af. And I might this cycle as well. I am ttc naturally as meds are not good for me. Also I am studying to be a herbalist to help others. Tired of no answers..</p>
<p> </p>
<p><img alt="" src="http://files.mothering.com/hopmad.gif" style="width:31px;height:20px;" title=""> This is how I feel most everyday. I am sure everyone can relate.</p>

<p>Tested (11dpo and BFN) Tested yesterday (12dpo) and got a very very faint positive!! Tested today and it's still there, just very light!! <a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.mothering.com/content/type/61/id/427784/width/1000/height/800/flags/" target="_blank"><img alt="photo-4.JPG" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="14563" data-type="61" src="http://www.mothering.com/content/type/61/id/14563/width/1000/height/500" style="; width: 1000px; height: 500px"></a></p>
<p>Can you see the line?! Barely there, if you squint! I'm just in shock and hope it sticks! Thank you girls so much for being there. Listening to everyones stories really helps. Today is CD 25 for me, this was the 2nd round of Femara and HCG injection at CD 11- I had 2 eggs- one in each ovary.</p>
<p>Symptoms- boobs are huge (like my bras don't fit & are leaving red marks) and very tender, occasional wave of nausea in the evening for no reason. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm just feeling cautiously elated I guess, I go in to the Dr on Monday. </p>
<p>Love and hugs, keep at it, it happens!</p>

Mollie-How frustrating! Usually Dr. will at least give a recommendation. Sounds like it was time to move on for many reasons. Hopefully you will be able to find a caring, understanding RE. Good Luck!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Sweet Tea- Congrats! VERY EXCITING!</p>
