So I haven't been on in a while and just wanted to give a little update on our situation. We actually stopped trying completely in Nov. after my Dr. told us she was going to dialate my cervix because it had some scar tissue but if that didn't work I had used up my usages of Clomid and Letrozole for my lifetime, no more than 7 cycles. We can't afford anything further. She wanted my cycles to stay under 60 days so at 56 days on Jan 24 I took a HPT it was positive and went to the Dr. last Tuesday everything looked great and my HCG was 12000. All of you still TTC are in my prayers and I wish the best for you.

Hello ladies-
I'm back. I'm not sure whether it's good or not, but I recognize a lot of familiar names. I wish you weren't! But it's nice to see familiar "faces" in a way.
Long story short, my BFP turned into twins born at 24 3/7 weeks that did not survive their prematurity.
Needless to say, I'm back. I had a vertical incision on my uterus. We were told to wait 18 months between deliveries for the best outcome. We've not been trying at all. Our method of bc has been withdrawal...it's NOT effective ladies. Between my pregnancy and maybe now that I'm on met, my cycles regulated. Cylce #1 7 weeks after I stopped pumping, a 45 day cycle, and a 30 day cycle...followed by today being cd 30 and a faint positive...augh! Almost 4 years of unprotected sex and fertility hormones and I can't get pregnant when we're going full BD and then we are somewhat careful and boom, it happens. WTF I guess maybe it's proof that this is my miracle rainbow??
I had an appt tomorrow anyways to meet with my OB re: a subsequent pregnancy and the fact that I tested slightly positive for antiphospholipid antibodies (not lupus coagulant though) which could have lent to my HELLP syndrome. Apparently it will now be for more than that...I have a call into the nurse to see if I can have blood work ordered...here we go...nervous wreck begins..........but I promise you, I am DETERMINED to enjoy every minute of this pregnancy and not be as uptight as I was last time......because obviously my stress and apprehension last time didn't do me any good either.

Melliot I just want to say how sorry I am. I lost my twin sons at 20 and half weeks and its heart wrenching. I'm sorry you had to go through that type of pain.

cuddles - are you on the facebook group? Seems like a lot of us chat there.

Its nice to see some familiar faces, but I'm sorry you're all still here.

DH and I have one IVF one shot, we'll try to start this next month. We're self pay now..and can't afford it, but got some money when my dad passed in April. After losing the boys I just havent been on as much, and more frequent the facebook private page for preggers and TTC. Seems like every time I do try to swing in here, and I have more than 5 minutes the boards are timed out, or soooo slow. I'm going to try to stop in more often, just not every day like i use to.

Hey all. Long time no chat.
Its been a long while since I have even been on these boards and I can see what people say when they are quiet.
I usually stalk the groups on facebook now but decided to pop in and stalk here a bit too hehehe....Surprised I remembered my password.
We have been TTC #2 since Start of december last year. So far things are going better than last time since i'm now ovulating on my own and a lot of my hormones are near normal.
I am currently on CD8. My cycle is approx 36 days on average.....It seems to be getting a day shorter each month lol.
Anyway baby dust to you all and I hope all is well here.
