Hi everybody, new user here

Hubs and I have been NTNP for the last year but since that didn't work, we're now actively TTC our #1. I found this forum because of vent thread (love it btw). I'm 33 and he is 36 and so far we don't have (or know of) any medical conditions. Hoping to get my little bun in the oven in the 2018

Hey, i'm pretty new myself.
Me and hus are moving from WTT here to TTC. We're trying with the next cycle for our first baby. I'm very nervous because i suffer of hypothyroidism and possible endometriosis (haven't made a laparoscopy though). I've been on a diet for awhile now, improved my lifestyle a little and i've been taking folic acid forte for a few weeks.

Hope to hear from you and catch you all around.

Trying to conceive (TTC)

Hey all,

I'm new to this, but like you, I am TTC for about a good year now. Went to the doctor and she told me that I have a slightly high LH. My results were 4:1 LH/FSH ratio. I asked if I had PCOS but she said she's not too worried about it because my testosterone levels were fine. I guess that just means that my eggs are not fully producing or something? I was just wondering if anyone has any tips or is in a similar situation. I'm currently taking maca root pills because I've heard that helps balance hormones and my doctor put me on prenatals for now. Considering that my LH/FSH ratio seems to be off, I thought this might help. I have also considered using soft cups after baby dancing to help assist the sperm. Not sure if it would help with my issue though.

Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated.... Never thought it would be this hard to get pregnant

Feeling Hopeless

My husband and I have been TTC for #1 for 15 months now. I have been trying so hard to be strong but I have reached my breaking point. I needed an outlet so thought I would give this group a try. I find myself crying on nights out with the girls or in conversation with my hubby and its getting crazy, I'm an emotional wreck and feel like people think I'm losing it because they can't relate, all of my friends pride themselves that they're husbands sneeze on them and their pregnant

I went for an HSG test on Aug 2 and the radiologist said my left tube was blocked, we went for our follow up and the fertility doctor disagreed so now I have to go back for another HSG at the end of the month to confirm one way or the other (crazy!). At this point it seems as if the first test may have messed with my cycle because my OPK's have all been negative and I usually ovulate anywhere from cd17- cd19, i'm on cd22 today and feeling like now we have decreased our chances even more by trying to help our situation. This constant roller coaster ride of emotions is getting to me now and I'm ready to stop tracking everything and just accept it for what it is.

My husbands SA came back with low motility but the last follow up we had showed that his numbers are getting better due to some lifestyle changes that he made (so at least we think) other than that we seem to be perfectly normal.

This is an unfair process as I look around and see people that take it for granted (being a parent) it makes me that much more upset. I need to get back into the positive realm but I'm having a hard time doing so.

Anyway thanks for listening to me rant if you made it through this entire post.
