I am starting this blog because I have been thinking about it for a while, to document my trying to conceive experiences. I also think I just need a place to go to express all the emotions that comes with this journey. I could easily do this in a public forum like myspace, but most of my "friends" on their do not know we are TTC (trying to conceive), and I want to keep it private. If you stumble on to this blog, most likely we are just people in the same stage of life, and don't know each other in the real world.
I got married in Oct 2007, and had not been trying to prevent pregnancy for about 1.5 years before that. In April of 2008 I did start talking to my OB/GYN about wanting to start a family in the near future. After an awful experience doing a saline sonogram, I cried my eyes out and decided to put it on the shelf for a little while. Also, we bought our first home in May 2008 so we got super busy with all that entailed.
December 2008, I had "the talk" with my husband, that I really wanted to start officially trying to have a baby. So I went to a new Dr that month by our new home, and he put me on 50 mg of clomid cycle day (cd 5-9).
It is now Feb 2009 and I just started my 3rd cycle of 50 mg of clomid. I am taking it cd 3-7 though this time, also I am taking evening primrose oil, and will take generic robitussen to thin out my CM (Cervical Mucus). I also just started a regular excersice program that I do at home, and it makes me feel alot more relaxed.
Thanks for reading my story. I will update as my journey continues.
