[Trigger] Hello All. My husband and I have been TTC baby # 2 since July 2010 so we are 17 months of trying. I will say it is much easier having my son now. He is 2 and since i've had him it hasn't been as bad at all as it was the first try to get pregnant with him. With my son we tried for 9 months and nothing happened and then I took clomid and got pregnant the first month on 50mg so I just knew this time it would happen just as fast as I took clomid the last time. Well little did I know that normally doesn't happen the first try with Clomid especially clomid alone without anything else. With baby #2 we have taken 3 rounds of clomid with timed intercourse only(w/o IUI) and didn't get a BFP so I took 2 months off to rest. Now I am back into trying our first IUI with Clomid 50mg and it failed for the month of July! The month of August we are taking a break from trying again and having surgery on the 25th. After surgery they found I had severe scar tissue on abdomen, bladder and uterus all stuck together, ovaries had mild endometriosis and interstitial cystitis on bladder and took appendix out. Husband went back to the urologist end of September and he put him on vitamins to help boost his low motility. We are hopeful that after 3 months on the vitamins his counts will improve and we can do another IUI with clomid around December or Jan.
I am so blessed to have my son and know that if we can't have anymore I am completely satisfied with him alone but we do want another baby one day and feel adoption is something we want to look into further and have already starting looking into it. We will see what happens, we could end up with 3 babies in the end one day
I took a test tonight and after us trying for 18 months I am hopefully pregnant it showed two lines. I will go to the dr. to confirm but don't give up hope. We weren't on any meds or anything just on vitamins and God made it happen in his perfect time. I am praying it will stick! Baby dust to you all!
I am on day 26 and I took a pregnancy test cause I didn't want to be disappointed for my birthday and i took it at 12 midnight and it said negative after 30 seconds i read it, so i got in bath for about 5 min or so just to rinse off and looked again and it was positive with two lines. It is a 10ml pregnancy test that shows up the very early and I am on day 26 of my cycle so I already got a positive. I am soooo excited I am trying not to get my hopes up tho. I hope it's really true I am Pregnant, FINALLY! WE are not on any fertility meds at all just both on vitamins that his urologist recommended I hope you will keep trusting God it will happen in his time View Thread
HI i know now Lopersgrl is taking a break from the boards but has also been trying 4 years. I sent her a message over on the clomid community. That is where she usually is. Hopefully you could post there and I am sure she checks it pretty regular still just may not post but if you post that about 4 years she may. I am so sorry you are having to go thru this. So glad you got the results from hubby tho, that is promising. My hubby has low motility also and his urologist put him on vitamins. Vitamin E, C and zinc were the 3 he suggested for motility but I also got us both fertilaid to take. We are about out of it but I just ordered a GNC megamen pill for him and one for me to take too. They GNC megamen pill has all he needs and some more than the fertility blend did so I am excited. I recommend putting hubby on that ASAp cause it takes 3 months for them to work. So We are coming up on the 3rd month in december and I am hopeful soon we will get a BFP. We have been TTC for 18 months now and i had surgery in August so I can't imagine 4 years. I will be praying for you. Keep in touch!View Thread
I do believe that if God grants you to have children you will have them. I am a born again believer in Jesus Christ he is my savior, and I know that God is the creator over all the universe. I know he knows my thoughts before I have them on my tongue. I know he is the one that created me in my mothers womb and I also know that he is my maker, savior and my deliverer. I also believe that God has given these doctors the ability and knowledge to do the things they do and know the things they do. I don't think that someone that has to take medication for diabetes or other conditions or diseases is any different in this case. I have been tested and all came out normal with me and hubby so we decided to try clomid back in January 2009 after TTC for a very long time. I had prayed and prayed about what to do and God just worked everything out from my appointment and everything. He made it all possible, I wasn't supposed to go for 2 months and they called with a cancellation(which they said never happens)and I got in sooner. I knew it was something I needed to do. I only took 50mg of clomid(the lowest dose) and they said I responded very well to it. They said to take the HCG trigger shot but I just didnt feel a peace about it so we didn't do it and I got pregnant my very first try with clomid and the help of God I believe. I know he made the medicine work and it was him that got my son here. I had never been pregnant before and carried him full term at 38.5 weeks. He is such a blessing from God and I also named one of his names Asher "meaning Blessed' out of the bible. He is going to great things for the kingdom of God and I am praying everyday that God just teaches me to train him up right. I want him to do awesome things for the Lord and know he is going to do something amazing. So I do not judge you for having this conviction, I wouldn't do anything until you feel like it is something God wants you to do but you are still young and you are just over a year so if you want to give it more time I would for sure do that. It took my friend 18 months and they just finally got preggers own their own. Baby dust to you and I hope you get your BFP soon. We are now TTC baby#2 so my example of God has to make it all work still stands. We have been on 4 rounds of clomid this time and 1 IUI and I have had surgery and still after 17 long months TTC we are not pregnant and I am so at peace about it all. I know God wants me to trust him and listen to him so we have not done any treatments ect. for over 4 months and we are both taking vitamins since hubby has low motility. We are hopeful that God will bless us with a 2nd child soon and we are also exploring the possibilty of adoption and if he leads us to that we will follow where he leads. I am excited about our future. He is an awesome God and I thank him for all he has given me. I will be praying for you and hope you get that BFP very very soon without any meds Keep me posted.View Thread
sorry to hear this, yes it is hard my husband says that to me often. I am like hush, I dont want to hear "it will happen" one more time. I know that's mean but good grief I know it may happen but how does he know It will happen, ya know. Anyways, I know only one person knows and I am trying to trust in him alone. My personal favorite is you have a 2 year old son who is healthy and you should just be thankful that you have him. like I am not thankful at all that I have him. Or my other is he is such a handful why would you even want anymore. Also both famous quotes from my oh so positive mother who for the longest had no idea we were TTC baby # 2 for 18 months now. I finally told her enough of her mouth we were trying and it's been hard 4 clomid cycles, 1 IUI and surgery later it's been rough and I dont need her negative remarks on top of it all. Thank you very much so just be blunt and honest is my philosophy. They want to be blunt and dish out the suggestions so I just dish out the truth back at them. I try not to be mean but gosh after a while you just have to be blunt with them. Some people just don't get it. I will never again ask someone if they are going to have children, are planning on having anymore or want kids, ect. It's just not going to be something I ever ask again.View Thread
I love this, hahahaha I will for sure have to give this one a try. He may be leading us towards adoption too. We have a DS that is 2, what is the adoption process? I am excited to begin trying to adopt within the next few months possibly if it's time!View Thread
what i say when they say that is, I have tried, not tried, stood on my head, stressed and not stressed been thru 4 rounds of clomid, 1 IUI a surgery and nothing so don't tell me to relax or just stop trying. Trust me we have "stopped trying" and until God says it's TIME, it will not happen for us. I know ppl think they plan things ect. but GOD has his hand in it every single time. He is the one that makes these beautiful babies here. They usually quit talking when I say that. I am not smart but it's the truth and they need to be educated before trying to just run their mouth and fix me. Sometimes people just have a harder time getting pregnant, staying pregnant ect. but again God made us that way for a reason and again decides when we all get pregnant or not.View Thread
That is good to hear. He takes fertilaide but also specifically takes vitamins C, E and zinc that his urologist recommended. Hopefully in about 3 months it will be up where it needs to be. For our IUI hubby only had 5.02 million usable sperm so I was very devastated by that number. I know some may be him and some could be me. Just have to wait and hope for the best. Good luck to you and baby dust.View Thread
I am not sure if that would cause you to not get pregnant or miscarry you may want to ask your dr. Have you had any testing done further? If not it may be a good idea since you've been trying for that long. Baby dust to you.View Thread
