Topic: Back in the saddle again...

Well here I am, back after a several year hiatus of visiting the forum here at NW.  I was here several years ago with my friend friendamy and the two of us were looking at TTC.  She of course has a beautiful little boy and I decided to move back east, finish my Masters degree and get life in order.  Well, here we are, 4 years later and AF showed today so I am ready to go!!!

I can't even believe it.  I'm so very excited and I can't wait to do this smile

I'm planning to use NW for my sperm donor, I'm a SMBC, an elementary school special education administrator and going through my doctors office for now.  I am beyond thrilled and can't wait to post my BF soon!

So here we go folks, onto cycle #1 with NW..

Re: Back in the saddle again...

5DPO - Feeling slight cramps during the day but clearly not AF cramps.  No bbs tender but that's not uncommon for me at all.  Nausea on and off all day.  Tired! POAS just to see if the HCG was still in the system and BFN

6DPO - Acupuncture oh how I love you smile Was nauseated going in but coming out...no nausea.  Drove to CT to see the family and on the way stopped to walk around a little because I was tired.  As I was walking around the store short burst of nausea again and some cramping.  Now it's late and I have some tender bbs.

Re: Back in the saddle again...

So here we are....I figured I'd give everyone a little history on where this journey has come...

I started TTC in September of 2007 but was thinking for many months and almost years prior.  My first TTC was at home and I just charted my way through it.  I think I always knew I'd end up at the doctors office so after I got a BFN I headed off to the doctor charts in hand.

I tried with the doctor for several months taking Clomid and that did no good at all.  I then moved on to injectable medication.  I did that for 3 tries with no luck at all.

That's about when I decided to take some time off and focus on grad school.  I graduated with my Master's Degree in School Administration last May and decided...okay, time to make a baby!

I've now done 3 cycles with a new RE whom I LOVE LOVE LOVE! First 2 were a bust which leads us to today....where I sit and wait for my 2nd beta to come back.  The first was 33.4 and I'm hoping for doubling numbers today.

It has been such a long journey filled with many ups and downs but I'm so excited to be here and posting this today.  I actually got a BFP...My body knows HOW to get pregnant now we need to teach it how to STAY pregnant smile
