Wow Brandi, that's quite a story :-). Good luck with your new relationship and with your next try.

AFM: Well I went in for my suppression check this morning. I was freaking out a bit because I was cramping and spotting. Turns out my coordinator didn't tell me this would happen. I just thought my lining would be so thin nothing would be there to shed. Anyway, all is on track for my FET on Oct 22. I continue Lupron (which is making me a crazy mess) and start estrogen tomorrow. I'm doing all of this while starting work with a new team. Not the best timing I'm afraid.

I also forked over $3500 today. I am so afraid for my one little frosted and all I'm risking for this second kid

Trying to give myself a kick in the butt

your so right. I had a look in the single parent, but the majority were either recently divorced, or recently single.

Im looking forward to going through this journey with you ladies

o0oo That's so cool! Hearing the heartbeat is the best ever . I haven't ever heard my own child, Because I dont have a child - But I know the scans that I've been too - it's the best sound ever.

Over the last few months, though, sparks kind of began to fly so we're giving a relationship a try. He still lives about an hour away from me so I still am kinda doing this all on my own.

I can start TTC on November 5 when my 6 weeks recovery is up. I look forward to getting to know you guys!
Welcome Brandi! Wow, that's amazing - Can I ask, What exactly is a tubal reversal? (Sorry, not so good with all of the ttc terms and names etc for things!). That's good he's going to continue donating for you, full sibling aside - at least you know him already - and he knows you. And if sparks fly; then even better. . Good luck for your journey!!

I've got another week to go before my monthly is due - but I'm not feeling any different at all. Didn't have a whole lot of ovulation symptoms like normal - So I'm thinking I may have ovulated early, we'll see. It can be so tricky sometimes. Bodies are weird things! 7 months trying so far. Wish there was a reason i knew why it hadn't worked so far! Maybe I've read too many, "first success" stories! Positive thoughts and baby dust to you all!! Baby growing dust to you Birdlee .

Aww - Goodluck for it all!. Hoping it works out the best for you, working with a new team can be hard enough - without the added hormones huh! Are you not eligible for govt funding or anything? Or are you just choosing not to take it? I looked into IUI if in-home doesn't work, but the cost in NZ - goodbye saving hahaa. All worth it though .

K.N. - After my youngest daughter was born in 2011, I had my tubes tied. I had surgery two weeks ago to untie them (tubal reversal)

Ohh ok - I thought that's what it would be; but just had to double check - never can be too sure!

K.N. I'm in the US. I'm using private insurance. It was more generous than most. But I exhausted my benefits having the first kid. Now I have to pay out of pocket for most of it.

Hey ladies,

Just a little update. I had an internal exam at the hospital a week ago due to some previous worries regaridng my heavy/irregular periods. Turns out I have a few cysts on my overies. It might not be full blown PCOS but just means it could take a bit longer for me to get pregnant.

Still, im hopeful that i'll get my BFP once i begin ttc. I move over begining of November. not long now!

Hows everyone else doing? xxx
