Looking For Buddies! Jumping back in and TTC #3


Hey all! 👋🏼

I am a returning BnB momma. My husband and I are getting ready to TTC for baby three! I had my second (a boy) in Nov 2016, and we are ready to expand. It's a lengthy process for us as I have PCOS and need fertility meds/consultations.

This time will be a little different, as I have different insurance and cannot go to a FS (fertility specialist). I also had to get an entirely different OB/GyN.

Thankfully, he does do clomid, so I am crossing my fingers that my body responds to it and I can take a relaxed approach to it. I sure am getting antsy. We have been trying on our own since basically aug of last year.

Who wants to do this together!?

Currently CD 1 I believe after a LONG and odd cycle 😂

I am also TTC #3! My fertility is essentially non-existent. I actually went in to get blood work today to get re-approved for Clomid.

Today is cd 21 for me but I will need more Provera to start another cycle so right now I am in limbo waiting on the results and hopefully a shiny new prescription of both Provera and Clomid.

I am with a new OBGYN this time because my old practice closed, but she claimed that my old history of infertility was okay and just wanted the one blood test to confirm so here's to hoping.

Hello! Iím also TTC #3 and have PCOS. I live in the UK and would get very little if anything in the way of help this time around. Iím ovulating on my own at the moment (and living in constant fear thatíll suddenly stop again) so hoping for the best!
Iím at the end of cycle 2 of trying now. AF is actually due today but am still waiting. All BFNs (one faint grey line on a blue dye but I donít trust that).

Fantastic that youíre able to get clomid. It was a wonder drug for me first time around. Good luck!

Hoping the best for you, jellybeanxx!

That is really unfortunate that you are unable to get Clomid. Is there a particular reason that the UK doesn't do it after the first child?

I was offered it with DS2, but funding for the NHS has been really tightened so fertility treatments have been limited. It tends to depend on which area you live in. For example, the guidelines are that people who need IVF should get 3 rounds on the NHS but very few areas actually offer that. Some have stopped offering any IVF treatment at all.
I think Iíd get basic blood tests for fertility from my GP but I wouldnít get referred to a clinic. I feel fortunate in that I havenít had to pay any money at the point of use for any of my medical care during fertility treatments, pregnancy, and birth (or any other medical care). It does mean there arenít unlimited funds though and it has to stop somewhere.
Thereís always the option to go private of course but I donít think itís something weíll do.

Welcome!! I actually made an appointment with my own fertility specialist anyway. After posting this today, I decided what is a re- consultation going to hurt. I called to see about how much it was going to cost for another visit with him plus an ultrasound and they were thinking around $500. I figured if it gets the ball rolling again, I may as well start!

The appointment I have with my OB is on August 23, so if I'm patient enough I could always cancel the other with FS 🤷🏼*♀️

Looking forward to the journey with you! I hope you get your script!!

Welcome!! Fingers crossed for you! Maybe late implantation and you'll get BFP! 🤞🏼

I respond well to clomid, so I'm crossing my fingers I just need that and timed ovulation 😄

Wow- it crazy how different things are based on where you live! Insurance doesn't make sense here AT ALL! 😒

I am glad that you haven't had it effect you financially! Health care in the States is a little wonky too. It seems it is really an all or none thing here. Luckily, my insurance is one that covers most fertility options. Not sure about IVF but we haven't had to try that yet thankfully.

How are you feeling today?

That's awesome! I had a pouty day today hoping that my Ob would call. As long as she calls within a week so that I can stay on track with my plans! I have been planning for August and I will stomp my feet if I can't get started. xD

Have you done anything to fight off any impatient urges? I have been doing my best to keep busy and stay positive. It took a long time to conceive #2 and I want it to go quick but I feel I need to be prepared just in case. I have a naive hope that if my ob scripts the exact dose/timing I was on that it'll all just happen.

I have already ordered OPKs
