    sorry I rambled a bit but it’s important.

    Hi I am 28 years old and DH and I have been TTC for 3 years now. I have a 28 day cycle and AF always arrives on time like clock work. (unfortunately)

    At first we were very excited, we had made the big decision to try for a baby and for the first 6 months we had fun doing so. After that I was a little concerned that things were not happening for us and by the end of that year I was upset most of the time. During my first year TTCing my two cousins and friend conceived their first after that it was a snowball effect and everywhere I looked everyone was pregnant. Everyone but me.

    The second year we were visiting lots of people with their new born babies and after 2-3 various baby visits I couldn’t do anymore I was too emotional. During the second year TTCing (in May) I had a lap and dye operation to see what was going on in there. Fine. All was well tubes clear, ovaries clean it all looked good. We were told that after such a procedure you are likely to become pregnant, just like that, as your tubes have gone through a “spring clean” (is what they called it) just give it a few months.

    Months went past and then I was in to my 3rd year of TTCing. Over the course of that year DH has about 3 semen analyses’, he passed the tests every time. His swimmers were buzzing around just fine. I had numerous blood tests to test my hormone level, all fine. I had many tests to see if I was ovulating, I was. But STILL we tried and STILL NOTHING!

    We arranged to see our fertility Dr on NHS she heard our story and thought it best to start the IUI procedure in January 2010. I felt much better, something was finally being done after all this time, roll on January.

    Then something happened………………..on 11th December I found out I was expecting my first baby, I couldn’t believe it, I did so many tests just to make sure and everyone of them had two little bright pink lines. I was shocked, stunned, I always dreamed of this moment and always wondered how I might reach to such a result. I sat at my desk at work and stared into space for about 1hr in a daze. I went home that night sat DH down and told him. He burst into tears, didn’t expect that I can tell you, but I can’t cry, cannot release all those years of TTCing until I see my little treacle on the scanner.

    I’m taking each day at a time and not getting my hopes up as it’s early days, when inside I just want to shout out how happy I am to the world.

    What did we do differently, we I suppose you could say I relaxed a little. Knowing my procedure was coming up in Jan I was so much more relieved. Also another thing we tried differently, a tip from the Dr – DH sustained himself for about 3 to 4 days before 'ovulation' to improve his count and on the 13th day of my cycle we did the Baby dance and on the 15th and on the 17th. Don’t know if this was the reason for our success this month compared to other months but we hadn’t tried this yet.

    Also I completely stopped smoking and drinking for 2 months (even when AF reared her ugly head), not a drop of alchol in those 2 months and to be honest I never smoked much anyway just casually but I completely stopped. Don’t know if that made any difference either.

    Pre-natal vitamins I stopped taking as I got fed after 3yrs of taking them but started up again once I found out I was pregnant. I did eat well too lots of veg and red meat and exersise. I did i must admit put it all to the back of my mind and took charge of my life to get it back, wasn't looking forward to xmas though, always a reminder of another year of faliure.

    What ever the reason, I hope this has shown you that after all this time we managed to finally get there and that there is hope just around the corner. I hope and pray you receive your special two pink lines soon too because we deserve it after all this time!!

    xx
