About Me

In reading some other blogs of women TTC, I've been inspired to blog about my own journey. Although I've been at this for a short time compared to some others, I've had so many frustrations already. None of our family and a very select few friends even know that we are on this journey. Hopefully, this will give me an outlet to vent, and one day let our child know the lengths we went to in order to bring them in to this world.

First, a little background on us. I'm 34 (soon to be 35) and I work as Program Coordinator at a preschool for children with special needs. I have a Master's of Education in Special Ed. My dear, sweet hubby has just turned 35 and works at a local bank. We dated for 3 1/2 years before getting married this past February. We've waited a little longer in life to begin having children. It was the best thing for us, but it does make us feel that we are pushed for time. Having worked in special education for 11 years, I know all too well the statistics of having children with birth defects after age 35.

I quit taking birth control in May. I chart my BBT on a daily basis and use OPKs to determine my fertile days. My cycle seems to be a normal length, my temperatures seems to be within the normal range, and I get positive OPKs when expected for the most part.

We did manage to get pregnant in October, only to miscarry the weekend before Thanksgiving. We are waiting for the first "normal" cycle after the miscarriage to being Clomid. So....that kinda catches us up to the present. I would love to have comments from anyone who reads about our journey and would love for you to share your blogs with me!
