I'm a Blogger Now!

Welcome to my blog spot! I have decided I am now going to become a blogger. The biggest reason for blogging, is to document the journey of ttc.

Adam and I have been ttc to over 2 years now, and it's been a long and trying journey. We know I can get pregnant, and we think we have eliminated the reasons for my miscarriages, but now we wait to get pregnant again.

Our journey began in August 2006, 2 months after our 1 year anniversary. We decided we would try to have a baby, and go at it the all natural way. But, it's hard to get pregnant, when you don't exactly have a menstral cycle except for once every few months or so...So, in January 2007, I talked to my Dr. and she prescribed me 50 mg of Clomid. Clomid has been nicely referred to by co-workers as my "hate pills", because mood-swings were in full effect when I was on it. One month on Clomid, a complete bust. Didn't even ovulate on it.

In July 2007, Adam and I met with a Reproductive Endocrinologist (RE) and we began 5 mg of Femara. That month I ovulated, but the cycle was a bust. But there's hope!

January 2008, our first BFP! It was a very short-lived pregnancy, as I miscarried less than a week after finding out. Met our deductible for the rest of the year, as I went to the ER twice. Word of advice...don't go unless you absolutely have to...there's not much they can or will do.

May 2008 - I had an HSG done, because my RE suspected I had a septated uterus. HSG confirmed the septate, and we scheduled surgery for June 2008. Adam and I decided to try anyways...

June 2008 - 2nd BFP on Father's Day! Was super excited and full of hope! Canceled surgery, but I miscarried in July 2008. Ultrasound showed a sac, but nothing inside.

September 2008 - had surgery to correct the septate. Also removed scar tissue on my right ovary.

October 2008 - Started ttc again after surgery. Again, a bust.

I know it's been a long journey, and it's still not over, but I have faith that there is a plan for us, and someday, when it's supposed to be, it will be our turn to start our family.

You would like to obtain as many vitamins, minerals, and vitamins as you are able to safely get, so a steady consumption of fruits and vegies are usually a good concept. By looking at records from a few cycles the test can reveal a pattern from which ovulation can be thought of.
