Hi all, new here

Hi all,

Just wanted to share my experience in ttc so far. I have been ttc for approx 2 and a half years with no sucess. It took me until 6 months ago to actually go to the doctors to try to establish what the problem is. Many bloods tests done up to now but thats about it. Had my first appointment with a specialist about 3 months ago all blood tests coming back clear. Specialist told me I will only see him every 4 months - great :-(

Anyway got my next appointment Oct 12th, having a scan so hopefully might spot something. Anyway, I was advised by the doc to stop smoking, which I have, and to loose weight, still working on that one. I have also started having accupuncture. Had 5 sessions so far and I think its brill.

Basically I have really irregular periods, sometimes I go without for 12 months sometimes 3 months, unfortunatley there is no system for me to get my head around. Anyway, just keeping my fingers crossed that this next appointment will shed some light.

Why does it feel that the world and its best friend are pregnant on the days when you are just aching to feel the movement inside your belly of a little life which you have created. Damn, one of those days for me today. Sister in law has had a little girl last week. So, so happy for them but can't help feeling a touch of the green eyed monster. I know I would be a wonderful mum. Just hope I get the chance SOON.....

Hope to hear from you all soon,

Best wishes,

Leann.

Hi leann1982 Welcome to the club! Don't worry wish I was pregnant too and not a member :D .
You said your Dr. did blood work-did he check you for PCOS-polycystic ovarian syndrome? It's known to cause irregular periods and ovulation.
I don't have it but am slightly over weight as well and the insulin the body makes is too much and screws up the other hormones. Basicly you produce too much testosterone and not enough estrogen. Again this is a weight issue-now saying that - slim woman too can have this so go figure!
Somethin to ask the Doc. Good luck to you!~

Hi lovebabies,

Thanks for the reply. I don't know exactly what blood works was done but I had to go back a couple of time for more blood to be taken for more testing. My GP said that the specialist has been really thorough with the the blood tests so I am presuming I would have been tested for the PCOS also. I too am a little overweight and although I know this can be a factor I also know that many, many bigger women have no problem having a baby. :(

Thanks again for your reply though it is something worth mentioning to the specialist.
