This is my journey to motherhood. It's a bumpy road, but I'm traveling it whole heartedly.

1st RE Appt
So I've got my very first RE appt set up for both Rob and I on Sept 9. I'm finally feeling some relief, that I've done what I can to get this show on the road. Of course, I'm secretly hoping, that this cycle will be our blessing, and that I won't have to go back to the RE, but honestly that's wishful thinking. At the rate we've been going (2 years, 3 months), even though I am Oing (which I know is a step in the right direction, especially since I'm not on Clomid), I just feel like something else is going on. My thyroid levels are normal, I'm on the right meds for that, so if it's not my thyroid screwing with stuff, then what is it? I need to know, so that's why I went ahead and made the appt. By the time the appt comes, I will have O'd by then, so I can at least know for sure if I did or not and let the RE know. I'm thankful I can at least do most of the consults here in town, but I'll have to do all the actual testing in Jacksonville, which means time off from school for me and off from work for Rob. But I know it's worth it and luckily he feels the same way. We're both tired and just ready for this mess to end in happiness.
My name is Melissa and I'm 28 years old. I've been married to my husband for six years. We've been together since we were 18. We started TTC in May of 2007. I've been thru 8 rounds of Clomid, 3 IUIs, and IVF#1 which all resulted in BFNs. FET#1 and IVF#2 ended in chemical pregnancies. FET#2 resulted in our little miracle Liam, born 8-17-11. This is now my journey through motherhood and past infertility.
