Looks like there isn't any activity on this board, but I'm hopeful, so I'm gonna put my info out there and see if anyone bites.
Hi, I'm Beth. I'm 30, and trying to conceive via DI. I've gone through all the tests, and I have PCOS (and slight IR), but no other problems that they see thus far. When we started this my cycles were 38 to 42 days, so they put me on OC to tighten them up. We went directly into a clomid cycle, triggered based on U/S measurements, then did the IUI 24 hours later. I'm on 13dpiui. Have had spotting and annoying symptoms that could be pg, pms, or just the progesterone suppositories having fun with me. Got a BFN from HPT yesterday morning, am waiting until beta to discontinue prog. I'm trying to look ahead psoitively to my next cycle, but having trouble not obsessing over every smell that makes me want to hurl and how much it will cost if I have to move to IVF... I am very thankful that my RE was so thourough and agressive, I hope this works for me soon.
How'd I get here? Well, I am only 30, but I had a child when I was 15, and gave him in open adoption to wonderful and loving parents who are raising him to be an amazing person. If you've seen Juno, you probably understand that every teen girl who gives her baby for adoption thinks that 'it will be her time to be a mom someday, just not now." And of course, that wasn't the right time... but I thought the right time would come before I turned 30, and that didn't happen. So I've been considering this for a while, and realized that I was pushing every relationship to be 'right' so that I could be a mommy, not a wife. I realized about a year ago that that wasn't going to work for me, I'm not a settler, and marrying the wrong person just to have a child would end up hurting both of us. Still, it never occurred to me that my long cycles might mean that it would be tough to do... I mean, I'm ONLY 30! So, when they told me PCOS, I realized that now is the right time... I may not have huge problems now, but it could get alot worse in the next few years. And I've always been ok alone, I'm not all that bothered by the idea of it. I have several friends with small children, and they complain all the time about how their DH doesn't do anything to help... so other than the extra paycheck, I think I'm good. Not to metnion the divorce rate and lack of daddy-drama with a donor.
Love to hear your stories...
