    Greetings to all! I must say that I feel very honored to be here. I am a 26 year old newlywed and I've wanted a family of my own for as long as I can remember. I've never been pregnant before, but I've honestly never actually started trying until about six months ago.

    My husband and I started TTC unassisted for about four months and then decided that something was wrong. I've never been "regular," and I have always suspected that I've had problems ovulating regularly. We decided to seek the help and knowledge of a fertility specialist, and had quite a few tests run. Come to find out, I have polycystic ovaries and was told that I have borderline Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. My androgen levels are just a tad high. Also, I had major abdominal surgery about eight months ago and was advised that I might possibly have one blocked fallopian tube. Win, right?

    This past month, we started our first cycle of fertility medicine. The doctor put me on Femara (letrozole), but I could only do that medicine for one cycle due to the fact that the fertility coverage part of my health insurance only lasted until the end of last month, and that drug is way too expensive to purchase without help. So, any future cycles will be done with Clomid.

    I went through the process of having ultrasounds, getting blood work done, BBT charting, ovulation testing.. Now we're at the end of our two week wait. Aunt Flo is supposed to show her lovely face either today or tomorrow, but I feel like I've had pregnancy symptoms for the past week and a half. I haven't had a positive pregnancy test yet, but my husband tends to think (whether it's wishful thinking or not!) that we have a little baby in my tummy.

    Nonetheless, I'll test for sure this Friday and if I get yet another BFN, I'm going to go ahead with my second cycle of meds, first cycle of Clomid.

    And there you have it! My story in a nutshell. Or eggshell. Whichever is more appropriate. :happydance:

    I've always heard, and have been told, that being part of a TTC forum is just about as good as any type of therapy you could seek while trying to get pregnant. So.. Here I am! It's great to meet you all. <3
