    Default TTC 12 months + Chat

    Hi

    I know there's a few of us lurking around in threads who have been ttc for 12 months +, and some chats happening around about the specific issues and feelings we face after being on the TTC hampsterwheel for so long... (Damn, where's that emoticon??!!! that'll do..) and I thought it might be nice to start a chat area especially for us to have somewhere to discuss things / emotions etc that can be specifically affecting us 12m+ ttc'ers, and give each other some extra support.

    Ill introduce and start....

    DH and I have been ttc #2 since August 2011. Most recently have done 2 rounds of IUI but I think will move to IVF in 2013. Had 2 bfps, 1 in Sept 2011 which was a m/c at 6.5 weeks, and the most recent a bfp in Oct '12 but found out at the 8 week scan bubs had stopped growing and no h/b, so had a d&e So, now we are waiting for test results in Jan then its back to square one for us in 2013

    Anyone want to join me???

    Sprinkling lots of baby-dust to get the thread going and start the bfps!!

    Hi! Welcome but at the same time bummer that u r nearly up to the 12 month mark I remember I found the 12 month anniversary quite disheartening... Fx you get your bfp soon xx

    Hopefully no responses means everyone over 12 months is getting their Xmas / New Years bfps!!

    We are seeing a specialist at the start of jan - should before my next cycle, so hopefully we'll get lucky on month number 12. So far docs haven't been able to find anything wrong with me :-( so we should be pregnant by now *sigh*

    Big hugs on the d&c :-( was it a natural conception or with help (if you don't mind me asking). I'm afraid that we'll be told I just have 'unexplained' infertility... Am considering heading straight for IVF in a few months if it hasn't happened.

    What do you think your FS will suggest next?

    It was my 2nd round of iui. I think If the D&C shows nothing they will get me to do iui again via obviously I can be pregnant it's just getting them to stay... (all of my levels were perfect tho so not sure..) If there was something wrong I reckon they will recommend ivf

    Can I join? We have been TTC baby #1 for 1 1/2 years. I havent conceived even once in that time so Im not even sure I can conceive. I have recently been diagnosed with PCOS and am on Metformin 1000mg/day and on a wait list to see a gyno.

    WH - hopefully there isn't a problem and this round will be your sticky!
    Star - have you managed to get an FS yet or you still trying to get a new one booked?

    Fx that 2013 is our lucky year! I have an FS app on Friday - very nervous. Had about a litre of blood (only 25mls apparently) taken today for the 16 different tests my gp ordered lol so will soon see what's going on with me! Had a bizarre dip on my charts today 36.80 down to 36.42 but only 6dpo so not sure what that's all about.
