Yeah TTC!!!!

Super excited to be a part of this group now:)


Little back ground:


My DH and I decided in April 2008 to TTC. I stopped my birth control and began prenatal vitamins. Four months went by and nothing. I followed up with my GP even though I knew it could take up to 2 years, I'm a nurse though so Dr. laughed and said we're always such worry warts. I had blood work done and ultrasounds. My BW showed that I do ovulate and my levels were all good. I had an external ultrasound done which showed a small cyst on my ovary. Followup internal ultrasound 2 weeks later showed the cyst had ruptured and there were no more cysts present. My OBGYN said I should get pregnant with no problems and to just keep working on it. Fast forward to April 2009....no pregnancy and a devastating feeling in my gut. I was so frustrated and upset that I said screw it and went back on my BC because my skin broke out horribly when I stopped the pills and my wedding was only a few months away. Skin cleared and wedding was great!


December 2009:) We've been humming and haing about this for months. I wanted to feel safe and confident in my new position in the ER department, I wanted to finish some more schooling, and I think part of me was scared that we would fail again at conceiving:( We also wanted to feel ready for it as far as money was concerned. In reality we are ready, we make more then enough money that we can support ourselves while I'm on maternity leave. The part that really made me feel ready was my DH asked me when I would be ready meaning he was waiting for me, it was so awesome because before it was me hassling him about it:) So we're going for it! No more BC for this girl! 


I'm super scared of course but hopefully it won't be as frustrating this time around. I can't wait to read more on the TTC boards and see how everyone else is doing with their efforts!

:) Welcome...what an exciting time!!!! Have you been researching baby stuff? I feel like that is the first thing I started doing even when TTC was off on the horizon.

Don't lose hope! It took me 13 months and I went to two Reproductive endocrinologists trying to find out what the hold up was! I had an HSG to look for a blockage and I got pregnant immediately afterwards. The dye flushes out your tubes during the procedure so it makes you more fertile afterwards. I was never diagnosed with anything it just took a little longer I guess.
