Hi guys,
 
I thought it would be nice to start a new thread for those of us that have been TTC for over a year-there are lots of us in here that have lots in common but we in different threads- such as TWW, charting girls, clomid pill poppers, IUI, TTC number 1 under 30 etc. There are amazingly strong women who have been TTC for some time in here, they may have a few war wounds from their TTC journey but are not giving up. It would be great to share our strength when we have it and help each other when we need it in here while still also sticking to our regular threads-anyone keen??

Ah pitterpatter, it takes me a while to get used to the new names sorry! But great idea!

I've been TTC #1 for over 18 months now, had one miscarriage earlier this year and that's it. On the waiting list for IVF in December but hoping for a sticky BFP before then!

Hi guys, choice there is other long timers keen for this thread.
Epic yeah very confusing changing my name after all this time-not even sure i like my new name that much! Feel free to shorten to whatever as it is a bit long. That is so choice you have IVF booked for Dec but heres hoping you get your BFP way b4 then, fx for this cycleCool
Babycrazy really hoping this iui round is the one Smile
Greenery really hoping it happends soon for you now you have your health problems sorted. Did it take you long with number 1? Our number one was a suprise so it is a bit of a suprise that number 2 has taken so long. We lost one in Nov last year at 10 weeks which was gutting, have recently had our first FA app and DP checks out ok and my ov is fine so she thinks it is a problems further along. Lap surgery in 6 months (hopefully before Christmas) to check for endo and any blockages, but like you Epic hope it happens before then.

#1 was pretty instant. like 2 months. so been stressful this time around.
I have had a root canal (and now the other side of my jaw is sore so need to go back to the dentist!!) and i have a kidney stone. haha
So have had a few stops and starts. Had taken it bad as alot (and i mean a crazy amount) of friends and family are pregnant. But i must say I am impressed one has had her baby and I reacted way better than I thought I would lol. I am glad i have a few good friends that are supportive!
Yes I hope our journeys arent too long!!

I'm glad a thread like this has popped up! I'm starting to consider myself an 'old-timer' with no BFPs as yet! Went searching in the infertility threads for somewhere to fit, but I'm not on clomid or doing IVF - currently waiting for a lap before any further investigation/treatment is done. Was feeling quite downhearted being in the TWW thread, etc. where the turnover of people coming and going with their BFPs is very high, and there's a lot of talk about their other children - I know it's obviously something that comes up, but it's really hard for those still waiting for their first, without other children to focus on.

Been trying for 2 yrs and 2 months, but have been on this site for nearly four years! First 2 years spent in the Waiting to TTC thread.

TTC#1 since Apr11
On hold for study!

I think the longer you're in the game the more barriers you put up. Now when I hear that someone is pregnant I pretty much roll my eyes and think "Oh yeah of course!!" Sounds cynical I know but its a way to cope. I hit rock bottom when my younger brother had his baby so now it takes a lot to upset me.

Sometimes I look back to the time when we were ttc for 6mths and I laugh at how naive I was and what I still had to face. Find it easier to not think about how long and focus on what comes next :)

Ahhhhhh pitter patter now I know who you are lol Mumma!!! Its so hard to keep up with the name changes on here Im liking this new thread!

We have been TTC #1 for 2years... Have had 3 rounds of clomid with our first round bringing us our first BFP in March and then sadly MC.
After having the HSG/SIS scan this week I have been diagnosed with Poly cystic ovary syndrome which is not ideal but at least we know why and what plan to do next.
Which is another round of clomid (4th round) at a higher dose and using trigger injections. Im waiting on my bloods today to see if I can start today as im always so far behind on my cycles.

Babycrazy I am totally hearing ya! I feel the exact same!!!

PCOS, 5 rounds of Clomid. 1 round of Letrozole 5mg & metformin
Puregon injections Aug & sep 2013
March 2013 Angel Baby
TTC #1 for 18Months+
IVF early 2014
When is it going to happen for us?

So great others are keen for this thread too!! Brownie I don't even like my new name now but don't want to add to the confusion by changing it again!
FX for your bloods today brownie so you can get going on next round
Rach are you on a wait list for your lap? They think I have an approx.-5-6 month wait. Gd to talk to someone else doing the same.
Greenery hope that isn't another root canal!
Hope you guys have a good wkend

Hi ladies,
I will jump in here too - 'know' some of you.

Been TTC for 3+years recently found out I have PCOS and on first round of clomid. DD 14 she was very much a suprise. DH yet to be an actual dad.

Was just at a neighbours mid winter dinner and talking about older relatives from families of 12 -16 kids ---- I was just smiling and thinking one would be nice!!

Having one of those - grrr I hate how long this is taking and why me and I hate all the drama involved moments.

I am so dreading this next round of iui.

Tips for recharging my mental health would be welcome lol. Really failing to see the light at the end of the tunnel :) Hope you're all feeling sunnier than I today xxx

Welcome icecream-how is your 1st clomid round going-where you at in your cycle now? FX the clomid does the trick.
Babycrazy gutted for you hun. Ok tip for recharching battery this is shallow but the other day I had voucher for a facial also got my eyes done. OMG the facial with head massage was sooo nice, in darkened room with music, jeeze woke myself up snoring!! But my skin feels so nice now and was heaps more relaxed. Anyways I just think give yourself a treat and the time to feel stink for a couple of days if you need to before moving on.This journey is really hard but we will get there in the end, we may be taking the long scenic road but we will get there in the end. I haven't done IUI and know it must be hard-hugs to you xx

Thanks Pitter Patter - nice to read your post upon getting up this morning.
Just have to soldier on I suppose. And if I were to look at the glass half full aspect of this part of this next cycle runs over the weekend so it won't affect work as much as it would. This one just gone I had to have an early blood test and wait for the results incase I had treatment that same day so that meant I couldn't go to work as had to have the bloods 1.5hrs away (loooong story lol). Then ended up not having treatment until the next day so it was very annoying and I guess stressful too.

My aim this time is to completely cut out on drinking and work to be healthy. I've never really been big on eating for fertility or cutting out drinking (don't drink coffee or many caffiene drinks) because I'd be a sad lady if I didn't treat myself to a vodka every now and again after 3 or so years but I've decided the time has come to sacrifice some things to see if it helps!

Here's hoping that you don't get to the IUI stage...its not as hard as IVF (not that I'd know) but its certainly taxing on life.

yip its horrid!! I always expected it to be difficult to get UTD, as i knew I had PCOS which would affect things for me, but I NEVER ever imagined until after the first MC that I would have any issues once we fell pregnant.
We have decided that the emotional and phyical toll is too much for us, so we are only giving it one more go - throwing everything at it in a last ditch effort before we come to terms with the fact we may never be parents

Hi guys,
Living far from fertility specialists must be hard BC, we have only had one FA app and had to travel 2 1/2 hours for that and it sucked. I think trying to be really healthy for this next try sounds like a really good idea, really hope it makes all the difference.
Monkeys massive hugs to you Hug I really understand that decision, think we'll only go another year, this is a hard journey. FX this last go works xx
