Thank you... I am down 30 lbs (179) from when I weighted my heaviest at 209. So my bmi for that is 30.7. I have to get down to 145 to be in a normal bmi range

Loves2...really great work on the weight loss! 30 lbs is huge! I'm really sorry fertility treatment is so expensive for you and I hope the Irish bring you some luck this cycle!

I'm on cd8 today...one more day of letrozole and then I go in for a follicle check on Saturday (St. Patty's Day...go figure). I feel better about this cycle...AF was much more normal and only lasted 5ish days as opposed to last cycle's 11 days. My bbt is also running a bit warmer this cycle and I'm not sure, but I think that's a good thing. We shall see.

I hope everyone else is doing well.

I've ordered some tea with vitex. I don't seem to have any problems with irregular cycles or weak ovulation, but with my history of CPs and MCs, I wonder if I don't have low progesterone! Anyone tried vitex before?

I haven't personally, but I do know that some fertility clinics specialize in helping women maintain viable pregnancies after having multiple CPs and MCs. Maybe something to look into?

I haven't had any sort of hormone testing done, and there's no way we're at the point of seeing a specialist. I don't think our insurance would even start covering the basics of getting this investigated for a few more months. 12 months of TTC is typically the timeline they follow.

I'm 35 now but this is only cycle #8 of TTC. I say "only" but it feels like an eternity. 7 cycles passed, 2 CPs. We had a MC and a CP last time we TTC, and it ended up taking 7 or 8 cycles for our sticky bean, so we're really probably on track. I've had a nurse tell me that every CP counts as a conception, and that 2 conceptions in 7 cycles is excellent and not yet at enough losses to be considered problematic. All 8 of my losses have occurred over a long enough timespan that they don't really count as anything abnormal, though I certainly feel that it's a lot more than there should be.

I just feel like there's more pressure to resolve this now that I've hit AMA, and my midwife expressed some surprise that no medical professionals had ever recommended hormonal testing with my history (though she didn't schedule me for any tests, either).

On the one hand, I really want to try the vitex tea and see if it does anything for me. On the other, since my cycles themselves are normal, I hesitate to risk messing with them.

Dill....I hope the tea works for you. I've been trying for about 7 years now, so I get that it feels like an eternity. I hope I didn't come across as pushing or anything like that, I just know from my own story that I really, really wish I hadn't waited to go to a doctor. I'm 32 now and don't have any kids yet so I'm really starting to feel the clock you know? Anyway, like I said, I really hope the tea works and I hope to hear good news from you this month!!!

Zoey...welcome! I'll get you down for the 6th!

I feel you on the ticking clock thing. I'd expected to have our sticky bean before I hit 35, and even then, I'd felt like we'd probably waited too long. But I'm at the mercy of my insurance. I hope I didn't come across as snappy. I know you're not being pushy, I just hate my insurance!!! I would love to have gotten some hormone testing done by now.

I'm sorry that you've been dealing with it for 7 years! Keeping my fingers crossed that this is your month!
