J_Lynn, I love Chattanooga, too. Very proud it's my hometown. Sadly, my parents, who lived on Signal Mountain, just moved a month ago to be closer to my brother and me, so I have no more relatives in the area. Was your dad on Signal or Lookout?

Myshel, do you mean the version with Colin Firth? I hardly need to watch that thing anymore, as I think I have it memorized! That's a great idea! I hope you catch that eggy! Congrats on the positive OPK!

Madgirl, glad Femara is working for you! Hope the TWW goes by quickly!

Lemon, I hope the Clomid works for you!!

Please allow me to be the first member our new little group to announce a ! This was our first Femara cycle, and I don't think it did a thing for us at all. Next month is a break month because of the lap, so at least I won't have to use progesterone supps!

Myshel, testing this AM did make me wonder--would you like to establish guidelines on this thread for people who get bfps? I'm on a thread where everyone is asked to put pregnancy-related news into spoilers. It's just an idea. If you have anything in particular you'd like women to do, we could establish it as a habit early on.

Hey Pebble.

EDIT** Oh YES Collin Firth!

I think that is a great question and to be honest I have no idea!
What would everyone prefer?

We are officially the originals in this group so if everyone would rather see spoilers than the dreaded pregnancy countdown than I think that would be a good idea.
I don't want people not to be able to celebrate especially because for us it is such a journey, but blocking or hiding tickers is probably a smart idea. Does anyone have any other suggestion?

Sorry about the bfn, I know you are doing the lap but still it stings. Big hugs. I know my first lap I had it in my head that it was my last chance to get preggers before the lap and I was devastated with I started af even though i knew the likelihood of getting pregnant was pretty minimal

Hi Lemon,

It is, nice too see/meet you. hopefully this first cycle will kick everything into gear for you!

So how is every ones weekend going? Any big plans?

Since it is our wedding anniversary this week so we decided to treat ourselves and get nice sheets and cover. Second year is cotton so we thought it would be perfect. Who knew there are do many choices, it took us two hours to pick them out!

Lookout Mtn - on N Crest, I love that area so much. It's so peaceful and quiet - Chattanooga is just wonderful, it's close enough to the main cities but its not all hustle and bustle like Nashville and Atlanta

I'm in agreeable with the spoiler alerts - But at the same time for LTTTC'ers, I almost like seeing BFPs because it gives me hope. It only drives me almost to drink with the ones who have been TTC since April. Of this year. lol

That would be wonderful... I think that's a great idea. Hubby and I really do need a new comforter and sheet set. I have 4 that I swap out between now but they're very masculine colors - grey, black, blues, plaid and then comforters are all pretty masculine outside of my white down. I want something with color and a feminine touch. Maybe some yellows with hues of gray and a nice soft pattern ... Oh man you made me think of something wonderful! haha

hey ladies

I'm shellie most of my story is in my signature/journal - long and complicate story lol LTTTC#1 for 12 years (2 different partners - first DH also had issues, my now DH SA is fine) HSG showed both tubes were 'blocked' (i say it in inverted commas as they refused to say they were blocked - 2nd attempt opened the left one ) left one now open after HSG, right one, well i'll find out on 25th june the official diagnosis for the right one. This is my first cycle after my HSG (HSG cycle was obviously a bust or i wouldn't be posting lol) so hoping the clear out has done me some good. I've lost a lot of weight over the last 7 months but my hormone results were excellent before i lost weight (much to my FS's dismay!) My FS are pretty much done with me after this next appointment and won't give me clomid to boost Ovualtion as i O on my own So relying on Soy Isoflavones to do the job instead until after this appoitment then i'm switching to the other hosptial who have already agreed to accept me. I'm a chronic spotter with short cycles, LPD and never a BFP in all the years i've been trying (and my current FS don't see any of these issues as a problem!)

Hoping this next few months with a clear out finally do the trick

good luck ladies x

Hi Shelly, 12 years! Hopefully soy works for you, i have heard positive things about soy so good luck.
How long have you been with your current DH?

J_Lynn - We had the best sleep on them last night, it was such a good idea we totally needed new sheets and the comforter (just a light blue with stitching) wasnt too warm or to light, it was just right.

hiya, we've been together 5 and half years. my Ex and I together for 9 previously. DH and I tried to let nature take it's course as he has 2 kids already... but i knew deep down it wasn't going to happen and would need interventions of some kind. Soy gave me a 25 day cycle with no spotting the cycle before my HSG so hopefully i can get the same with a BFP at the end of this one! lol x

I'm sorry for your bfn pbl_ge! Yay for no supplements though, enjoy!

Sorry, this might be a stupid question from a newbie, what are the spoilers you are talking about?
For my part, seeing bfp here would make me incredibly happy, and rather than being upset it would give me lots of hope! I would'nt mind seeing any bfp announcements, but i'm happy to go with any decisions.

Talked to dh about supplements for him, and I will get some later today. Great to see him so supportive.

Our plan A is, take supplements and try to improve his motility and count, and try hard to get pregnant naturally. Plan B, try ivf, Plan C is go back to plan A

Hi Ladies - mind if I join you?

I'm not sure if this is quite the right place for me as technically I am not LTTTC#1 (my daughter was stillborn), but I don't feel right on the secondary infertility boards either as I don't have any living children

My story

DH and I have been together for 12 years now. In 2002 we had an early MC and after several years of NTNP we seriously started trying again in April 2010. A year came and went with no joy so we were referred for fertility testing. We had all the baseline testing done by our GP and they referred us to a specialist who carried out further testing. In November 2011 I was due to have a HyCoSy but instead got my first BFP in 10 years that month however my daughter was stillborn in early 2012

We started trying again pretty much straight away and now due to the length of time we have been trying again we have been referred back for more fertility testing. I had my HyCoSy last week which showed my tubes are open which is a bit of a relief.

So at the moment we are listed as having unexplained fertility problems, however we both do have some known issues. I have polycystic ovaries and somewhat irregular cycles (they vary between 27 and 41 days but in the last 6 month they have evened out). They are not convinced I ovulate every month (my day 21 bloods are inconclusive) but I chart and most months I do get a temperature rise which indicates ovulation (not in all months though). DH has some fairly major issues with his motility and morphology although his count is ok.

Our consultant has said it is unlikely that we can conceive naturally (not impossible, just unlikely) and that IVF with ICSI is our best chance. However we had a miracle happen once so we are still TTC whilst waiting for IVF.

We are currently waiting for our next consultant appointment to see if they will fund an NHS cycle or two. If not then we will go private (I was all set to go private and had several of the initial tests and scans done then the private consultant told us to go back to the NHS as we are eligible for funding due to the fact we have been TTC for over 3 years with no live birth in this time).

We started DH on some Wellman conception tablets + Vitamin C after his last SA showed very poor motility and morphology. He has been on them for about 6 weeks now, so it will be another 6 before they start to take effect.

As for myself, I take Sanatogen 'Mum to Be' tablets (which I have been on for over 3 years now), Vitamin C and Omega 3, 6 & 9 every day with some additional evening primrose oil and vitamin B complex tablets from CD1 to ovulation.

If anyone has any other suggestions I would be grateful to hear them
