Post subject: Long TTC'ers - Lets Make a BFP Pact!
Hi Ladies, I know there are quite a few of us who have been trying for a long time and this month we're all trying to get off this forum (it's great but .... ) I thought it'd be good for us to start a post with our history and then we can give each other support and tick ourselves off when we get our BFP's So if you're up for it.
TTC since Sept 08 - properly since Dec 08
CD3 and CD21 bloods - show oving but high FSH
Boods found underactive thyrold on meds now.
1st app with Consultant in Jan, 2nd in Jun
Hubby had SA - normal
I've had scan to check ovaries - normal
Waiting on HSG
Trying acupuncture this month
Baby dust X X

Good idea Blossom. Nice to know everyone's history with TTC.
OH and I are both 26yrs old.
Been TTC since Oct 08 - so around same length of time as you.
Scan on ovaries last year and confirmed my suspicions of PCOS
OH's sperm sample came back ok - a few abnormal ones, but nothing to worry about
Have my 1st 'official' appointment with Gynaecologist on 19th April - I'm hoping he will prescribe me with Clomid or something to get this rolling, cause I don't think I can try 'naturally' for much longer!
Am currently on CD144 with no signs of AF!
Had 1st ever possibility of BFP on Thursday when I spotted a tiny, thin, faint vertical line on CB HPT, left it all weekend and tested again on Monday with FR - nothing
Good Luck everyone!
TTC Baby #1 since Sept 2008

What a brilliant idea!
37 next month, DH is 33
TTC number 1 since Feb 07
2 pregnancies which ended in MC so haven't been to doctors about fertility yet
Took AC and got pregnant the first month on it in November 2009 and taking AC for the first month since MC - if it works this month I'm hailing it a wonder drug!
Going to try sasmar next month if nothing happened
Going to try soy if nothing happened by June
Taking pregnancy vitamin, omega 3, vitamin B6 and aspirin - the last 2 are to prevent MC

What a brilliant idea blossom!
Im 22 and my OH is 24!
We have been TTC our first child for 2.5 years.
CD3 and CD21 bloods all came back normal.
OH's Sperm Analysis also came back normal.
Had first appointment at the Fertility Clinic in July 2009 (advised to try for a further 9 months and have a HSG done)
Had HSG done November 2009 - all came back normal.
Second appointment at the Fertility Clinic in March 2010 (prescribed Clomid)
Started Clomid with this cycle 50mg from CD2-CD6
Follicular Tracking Scan showed overstimulation - told to abstain this month.
Start Clomid again in 2 weeks!
Started Clomid again this cycle 25mg from CD2-CD6
Follicular Tracking Scan showed 2 healthy follies.......let the BD'ing begin!
Waiting on CD18 bloods next Friday.
Babydust to everyone! xx

Great idea, I think all the TTC ladies are lovely BUT I want to get out of here........
I do think every single one of us will be 'graduating' to the gen pg before the end of the year! We've just got to stay positive that we will have our bfps soon!
I'm 30 next month, OH is 38
Been TTC since April 08
Had 2 losses - 1 early & 1 2nd trimester
Was diagnosed with PCOS about 8 yrs ago
Scan 2 wks ago still showed PCOS
Waiting for blood results & oh's SA results at app next month
Have tried herbs & accupuncture but hasn't worked at regulating my cycles
Have just take provera to stop this long cycle and then will be starting Soy
Loads of baby dust to everyone! xx
After a horrible few years, life is good.

Wouldn't it be lovely if we were all in gen pg together!!!
I have just turned 39 (eek!!) and my oh is 30, we are ttc our first.
We have been ttc for nearly 2 1/2 years
OH has had 2 sa done which were all ok
I have had day 2 bloods - all ok
I had a scan which was ok
Waiting to have a lap and dye - should have been 19th April but my cycles have gone crazy recently. I am on day 24 and haven't ovulated yet (I am temping - my cycles are usually 28-30 days), so I have had to change my appointment which is now 10th May. I have been for my pre-op already though.
After lap and dye I think they would offer us one round of ivf but at the moment I don't think I want to go down that route so we are thinking about adoption. Hopefully I won't need it though!
Baby dust to all you lovely ladies. xxx

I am 25 (26 very soon) and OH is 26.
We have been ttc since Feb 09.
Have had one mc at 9 weeks and two chemical pg's
I think the reason it has taken so long for us is because OH was away in the week which is when OV always seemed to happen.
I have docs appointment next week - no idea what to expect xx

I'm 23 (nearly 24) & oh is 27.
We have been ttc since Dec 08.
Found out last year I have PCOS
Had HSG in Oct 09...all fine.
Managed to concieve naturally in Nov09 but sadly lost my angel at 8wks
Due to start clomid on this cycle (should be next 7 days or so) so I've got everything crossed for BFP!
Lots of luck and baby dust to all xxx
