Well I have an amzing nurse practitioner and I told her how I had these horrid pains on my left ovary so bad they made me want to cry for a whole week and that I had been ttc for about 9 months already. She is so amazing and had me get an ultrasound at her office. They found I had something on my left ovary so I was sent to my OBGYN who did another scan (to make sure it was not bowl) and it was a cycst. It showed that it was smaller than the first scan and would not be a problem (fortunately it wehnt away on its own). So, I then also had my annual OB apt the same day of the US because I knew I wanted tests for infertility and so I scehduled my apt like 3 months early hahaaha. I just felt in my heart that something wasn't right. My dr. had already done tests at my 6 month mark of ttc as I insisted on going in then too-cd3 tests. At my 9month mark of ttc she said, okay, lets test your husband-gave me the "goodie bag" aka his sperm cup LOL and he did his thing. It came back very abnormal in their words, so we did a 2nd one-also abnormal. He went to a urologist a couple times, had a scrotal ultrasound, and whilst already in the processes of IVF we learned that DH had a genetic defect in his scrotum causing the sperm to not be able to come out enough and properly. This is unfixable-and IVF is most likely the only way for us to get pregnant together. sorry for the long explanation-in such a ranty mood this morning!

Almost - Thanks for your story. So happy you got your bfp in the end!
I suffer from panic attacks too with anxiety and can faint when I have them which causes a seizure. I am worried it will happen while pregnant but have told doctors this and none of them seem concerned. I have a fab doctor right now, I went back on my anxiety meds in Feb and she said she wouldn't be at all concerned about me being on them while pregnant and she has other paitiants on 4 x the dose i'm on (not what others doctors told me) but I'm very gradually reducing my dose now (with her support) as I'm feeling good and haven't had a panic attack in months!

I agree with what you say about still enjoying life while ttc. I have cut right back on drinking (not that I was a big drinker) but I have found going out and having a drink occassionally helps keep me sane!

I don't have anything, other than pre af spotting!, to indicate a problem so fingers crossed it just happens but I guess if not I know I have a great doctor who will help me through any tests we need in the new year!

Thanks for sharing Almost. I have had numerous us' whilst ttc. I had a cyst removed last March. I also had the more invasive one to test for polyps. So far so good, but it doesn't explain why it's taking so long to concieve. I've asked for bloodwork and a sa for my husband, but they keep telling me I have to wait. I really like my doctor so I am just going to listen to her and try and relax.

Cupcake, sounds like you have everything in order and a great doc. If they say not to worry, try and listen. Hard to do sometimes.

I totally agree about living life as usuall. I can't not have a glass of wine out to dinner with friends. People would think something is up if I didn't.

unfortunately you can get all the tests you want when you want, my dr. said only cd3 tests for 6 months of ttc, and even then I think she was being generous!

Just wondering....


Did any of you ever get a medical reason for your spotting? I'm worried mines got worse since D&C.

Also, I'd had HSG carried out and could see the uterus wasn't filling properly and left tube looked blocked but then found I was pregnant anyway (hence finally miscarrying) and I'm worried there is something but I don't know yet! Dr has booked follow up for Jan and suggested lap & dye if still not conceived by then...

Mrs pttc - I found sleeping bags to be an absolute godsend it's one less thing to worry about in winter knowing they won't kick their blankets off or worse still cover their face or get tangled . Not sure about summer months as JJ was older then but am assuming I'll be using them again for jelly2.

YomsYoms TTC can be a really tough road at times everyone deserves to rant when having a bad day

Goblino - sorry AF arrived

Katiettc - hope the spotting isn't anything serious fingers crossed

Welcome Tootsie

Chloe, just one month left, this is crazy. It feels like you were sharing the positive news not so long ago and here you are about to deliver. You're right, our shower is a bit earlyish, but we're having it in Dec because my husband's family is in Philly, mine in Europe and everyone is getting together for Christmas, so it's gonna be a shower/family reunion kind of event. I wanted my folks to be there for that.

Welcome jodspods, sorry about your mc I don't have any experience with AC or epo, so can't really comment on that. All I know is my spotting was never explained, but it didn't prevent a bfp. I wasn't taking any extra meds (besides folic and png) the month we succeeded. Good luck to you!

Almost, cupcake, wow I didn't know much about panic attacks, I didn't know you can faint during those. Are you allowed to drive? Hope they stay away!

Girls, who are expecting, there's one nagging question that's been on my mind: Pampers or Huggies? Or some generic brand? I'd like get some diapers ahead of time, but have no idea which ones to choose. I know most of you are first time moms also, but perhaps you did more research or had some input from more experienced moms. Hope ttc girls don't mind us discussing baby stuff on here.

Good, I had to give up my license for 6 months after the seizure and it's been hell. I'm counting days till Dec when I can get behind the wheel again. It sucks to have to constantly rely on someone driving me places since public transportation in our area is practically nonexistent.

Thanks jellycat, my baby will be a spring baby, but still think sleeping bags will come in handy so it can't kick the covers off.

Katie, Pampers all the way! All my friends prefer pampers, apparently the huggies leak a lot, plus DH can get them cheap from work so saves us money!
