I thought I would open a new thread for those of us trying to conceive in 2013! The 2012 thread had lots of good news right up until the end of the year, so I'm not sure how many of us are still trying to conceive. Here's hoping we can all receive the same good news and start out our year with our own BFPs! :)
To give a personal recap, my husband and I have now tried for four months unsuccessfully. We have no children to date. I'll be ovulating around January 6-8, and am excited to give it another shot! We have no reason to believe that we have any fertility issues, though I did struggle with vaginismus (involuntary muscle contractions that prohibit vaginal penetration/sex) following a near-fatal car accident and traumatic pelvic/vaginal injuries in 2010. All is well now, and we were able to begin TTC back in September. We're just trying and waiting and praying for a baby. Wishing all the best to those of you who are still trying as well!
Great idea to start this thread!!!
A little about me....
My husband and I started TTC right away (once married) and it took Over 1 year to get pregnant AFTER seeking fertility help! We were very lucky and got pregnant with our son after only 1 round of CLOMID...
I have always been irregular and also had a section of my left ovary removed due to a large cyst when I was 21.... Turns out I didnt ovulate... The clmoid fixed that!
Since my son was born (over 2 years ago) we have used NO form of birth control at all and NOTHING (again)! We took 1 cycle of clmoid in April and NOTHING... we took a break over the summer and have to go back for MORe testing in fall... We are now on a higher dose of the same drug that helped us get preggo with the first so hopefully it works!!!
I ovulated on the 30/31st December so I am now in my TWW (two week wait)! Im really hoping it sticks!!!!
Good luck to everyone else trying!
My husband and I have been TTC since march of last year. Still no luck, But I was ovulating over the Christmas week so now im in the waiting period.... but with the holidays and tons of people over it was hard to "make it happen" so im a lil discouraged about this month. But still hoping for the best! We will be going for fertility check up come this march. Praying that nothing is wrong....
Hi everyone! We will be TTC our first child starting in February. Hoping for a quick positive! Best of luck and happy new year :)
Hello and good luck to all. We just started trying for our fourth child. My husband had a vasectomy about 6 years ago, after we'd been fortunate enough to welcome three babies in a 2.5-year span. We were so exhausted at the time, and he was in graduate school, but we were also very young (he was 26 and I was 24). So much regret have I had over that vasectomy!
He's had a reversal, after years of deliberation, and we just went off the pill and started trying this month. His sperm count looked excellent at last check. Hopefully everything is in order on my end of things and will remain that way on his end. Should find out in a few days if we were able to make things happen this cycle.
Lots of symptoms (nausea, breast tenderness), but my mind could certainly be playing tricks on me. Having a very hard time being patient with the wait, since I have wanted to have more kids for what feels like a very long time (he only recently got on board). I am nervous because we haven't ever "tried" to have children; we were so blessed and didn't realize the extent of that blessing.
Best wishes to everyone.
Update: BFP this morning, 1/2/13!!!!
My husband and I are starting our baby making journey this month! I have PCOS (poly cystic ovarian syndrome) and next week we are starting fertility treatments. This disease has been such an overwhelming part of my life for the past 10 years and i just hope and pray it wont dictate this next chapter like I have been dreading it would. Going into this with a positive attitude but I am nervous!
Thanks for starting this post, Alzora. It will be great to follow similar journeys while going through this myself. Good luck, all!
Thanks for starting this thread, Alzora!!!
A little about our situation:
I was on the previous thread for a long time, and I valued all the support I received there. It helps to have people to talk to.
We've been TTC for almost a year. We actually started the prep work a year ago, and started the timing, etc in the Spring. We have a 4 yr old little boy who is desperate for a sibling - to the point of asking an amazing amount of embarrassing questions.
I have Endometriosis. It was discovered when we were TTC our son. That time around, I got pregnant 24 days after the laproscopic clean up surgery. I subsequently went on the highest form of chemical birth control to control the growth of the Endometriosis, in the hopes of being able to conceive easily when we were ready. My mom got leukemia, and that put our lives on hold for over 2 years. She's better now, thank God. And we're back on the TTC band wagon.
I had the laproscopic surgery again Nov. 9th. I haven't conceived yet. I'm taking the middle amt of Femara, and am ovulating (thank you Wondfo tests!) and my Basil Body temp is consistent with Ovulation. But it's not happening. I ovulated over the Christmas week as well, and am now eagerly awaiting January 9th. So... we'll see. If this doesn't work, our last option is IVF.
Good luck to us all!
So glad this thread was started, thanks Alzora.
I was also on the previous thread but only for a few posts.
A little bit about my situation:
My husband and I have been ttc our first child since a miscarriage in 07 at 10 1/2 weeks, we tried naturally for 3 years before I discussed the situation with my then ob/gyn. We went through 3 unmonitored cycles of clomid never getting our bfp. We took a break from trying after that because I was just emotionally drained and disgusted with my then ob/gyn. I found a new ob/gyn in '11 and after a year of weight loss(so far down only 38 lbs but its better than nothing), we just went through our first round of clomid 50 mg with day 21 progest. testing. Unfortunately the progest. test came back negative. Since I do not ovulate on my own, my ob asked me to wait a week and come in for an hcg(just to be sure), then I will start provera again. Then we will move onto our second round of clomid 100mg, day 14 u/s and day 21 progest. test.
Good luck to all you ladies, hope you all receive your bfps very soon!
mill1020 , I just saw that you got your bfp this morning! wonderful news! congrats!
Ahh, congratulations, mill! Look at that--one day into the new year and already we have good news on the thread. I guess we're off to a great start! To the rest of you, good luck with it, and keep us all posted! I'm eagerly awaiting the weekend for ovulation. I tend to be a bit irregular, so the plan is to go at it like rabbits for about five or six days and see what comes of it.
