Post subject: Getting to know you thread ... ( not done one for a while )
Hi girls/ guys
Well as the subject said I thought it was about time we had another getting to know you thread as its been a while since we last done one. I don't get on as much as I would like as been busy lately . So I don't know a lot of the new posters.
First of all welcome to to all the new people .
I will start ..... Obviously
Well my names Susan , I stay in Lanarkshire , Scotland .
I live with my partner of nearly 10 years josh .
We have been ttc for 4 years come the 23rd of dec.
THere is no reason why I can't get pregnant , though I do have a bicornuate uterus, so have been told when I do get pregnant I will be high risk
So far I have done 4cycles of iui , will know come the 20th if this cycle has worked. So far not feeling anything .
If I don't fall pregnant before , then I will be doing ivf approx may time.
For now I will have to mother the rabbits, g pigs and the dog
Looking forward to hearing from everyone else ... I will get on again when I can x
Oh and don't post anything on here which you wouldn't want randoms seeing
Least I have my fur babies x

Im Emma. I live in Mevagissey, Cornwall.
I have a 2yr old dd called Belle.
Hubby and i have been together for 6 and a half yrs.
We r just about to start ttc baby no 2.
Just want to wish you all the best, ive my fingers crossed for the 20th for you. It would make a lovely xmas present for your hubby (and you )
My cousins had a very hard time ttc, they also had nothing wrong with either of them, it just wouldn't happen. They had ivf and were lucky to fall first time. They r now expecting no 2 conceived naturally. Hope your as luck (if you need ivf). x

Im Claire and Im 32 o/h is 38 we've been together 5 yrs. Been trying since December 2007. Found out I had blocked tubes in October 2009, had surgery on them in March 2010 which was successful. Then fell pregnant in June 2010 but miscarried , fell pregnant again in August 2010 but miscarried yet again. Then nothing till February 2011 where I fell pregnant again but it turned out to be ectopic which ruptured and I lost my right tube. Then went back to trying and nothing, had a laparoscopy in August 2011 which showed my remaining tube was blocked again it was unblocked yet again but didnt fall pregnant. Saved the money for Ivf and went through our 1st cycle in July/August this year unfortunately it didnt work. Did a frozen embryo transfer in November which also didnt work so we shall wait until new year now to go again.
Just a long list of disappointments from me Im afraid, on the plus side I have a wonderful partner , a 12 yr old son and my beautiful cat baby who I love to bits (shes 10).
Ttc since December 2007!

Hi I am Teebs
Been with OH for over 7 years now, we live near Blackpool we bought our house 6 years ago we have a BEAUTIFUL cocker spaniel charlie he is our world
And also my baby even though he is 4 now!
We have been ttc for 3.5 years - had all the checks nothing wrong apparrntly above average on results, although I like susan have a BU which to be fair every specialist I have seen hasnt really said much about it to me just that its like that and thats about it, its very odd maybe its not that promenant
We have had 6 months of clomid at 50mg then 3 months at 100mg which again didnt do anything!
We have seen numerous consultants on the nhs and more recently have been referred to Macnhester st marys (as thats the nearest to us that performs IVF)
We have had to repeat lots of tests at Manchester we did that in October and should get a letter literally any day now (as the 12 week waiting list) to see the consultant who massive fingers crossed gives us the go ahead for IVF xx

Hi, my name is Lara, I'm 38 and have been married for five years to my oh Daniel oh is 29. Married since dec 2007.
We used to live in Warwickshire but now live in the country in western Australia. (I'm an Ozzie).
We had a miscarriage in January 2009.
Stopped all contraception in June 2009 and regardless can never use any medical type again as I have horrific reactions to them all so my GP put a stop to it.
We have been trying to conceive since then but to no avail.
I was diagnosed with PCOS at 17, have Hashimotos thyroid and two other autoimmune problems. All these cause major fertility problems.
I also have no spleen, chronic arthritis and pineal disease.
Yet still I want a baby.
However last week I got my period for the first time in ovver a year, and it lasted a day... Ok about an hour.
I am on a lot of medication the latest of which increases weight and fluid even more than the others.
I'm sure I'm stupid to want a baby despite this, but it's so a part of me. I hurt sometimes, I so desperately want a baby.
I do t ever expect to become pregnant, but I can hope.
The good news is that my Rheumatologist has referred me to an Endocrinologist who specializes in PCOS and Thyroid, so maybe he can help.
I have also started a weightless plan and have lost 24 lb on very low calories. Not easy but worth it.
Have been on and off ab for a few years. I leave intermittently when the disappointment gets too much to handle.
Sorry, very boring post I know.
Wishing u all baby dust.
I really hope it happens soon for you Nutty! Susan, Teebs and everyone else
Me 38 DH 27 (
PCOS - Back Disease - Thyroid
MC - 2 Jan 2009
TTC since 24 June 2009
Cycle - most recent 850 days
Desperate to conceive baby #1

Hi all. I'm Karen. I'm 28, my DH David is 34. We have been TTC our 1st since October 2010 with no luck. We've each had some good and some iffy test results on fertility tests so not really sure where we stand. I was supposed to start clomid my last cycle but postponed it because we had to move house so I decided best to wait. Looks like I'll be starting it over xmas now...Good luck everyone. xx

My name is Debby, been married to my dh just over 6 years now.
We've been through all the tests, had cystes taken off of my ovaries and since then been going well cycle wise (well after a couple of hiccups due to the body putting itself back to normal haha).
Had 3 months of clomid with a trigger jab and then tried Letrozole with a trigger jab. I've started going for acupuncture which is lovely and really helps relaxing.
For now we're just enjoying life and stopped the fertility treatments as I needed a break. The gynea keeps saying to give it time, so I'm staying positive about the whole thing.
We have a lovely dog that enjoys lots of cuddles, so that always makes me feel good.
Have a good christmas ladies!

Awww never give up hope ladies, if ever it gets too much there's always girls like myself who will carry a baby for you through surrogacy xx
My heart goes out to each and every one of you and i thanks my lucky stars every night that ive never had to go through the pain of infertility xx
I hope to be seeing some BFP very soon xx
Have a very merry christmas xx

Hi, I'm Sarah 32 on Sunday married to dh who is 37 for 5 years. We have a ds who will be 3 in march and have been ttc number 2 for a year. I had a miscarriage at 6 weeks in may. It took 18 months to conceive ds and we had tests which showed dh to have bad quality swimmers with poor mobility so we were shocked when we fell pregnant at all.
We've just had a couple months break at ttc as I had an op on my foot but we are back to it now and hoping for a BFP soon. Good luck everyone xxxx
