04/05 – Met DH
11/07 – He Proposed.
07/08 – We got married.
I wanted to start trying right away, but that freaked him out, so we waited. We compromised on the spring.
02/09 – DH lost his job. We freaked out about $$ and decided to put off the TTC until the summer.
06/09 – Friends who got married 1 week after us are preggo.
07/09 – 1 year anniversary. Had the TTC discussion and decided to give it a go! Naive. Think it will happen the first month (which is how most of my friends did it!).
08/09 – BIL and SIL who got married 20 days after us are preggo. I assume this is great – the cousins will be close in age!
09/09 – 8w cycle. Realizing something is wrong, but hoping it’s just my body getting rid of BC hormones.
11/09 – 7w cycle. Wasting oodles of money on pregnancy tests.
12/09 – BFF who got married a couple months after us tells us she is accidentally preggo. Hurting, but trying to be only happy for her.
12/09 – Start charting BBT, etc. Helps so much to know what’s going on, but realizing there’s no ovulation happening.
02/10 – First Doctor’s visit. I know it hasn’t been a year, but I see no reason to wait since I’m not ovulating – it’s not like we’re not timing the BMing right!
We do a ton of bloodwork on me and semen analysis on DH. Everything looks okay and I’m relieved.
The next week they do my ultrasound and the doc sees a ring of pearls. Looks like PCOS. Dammit.
03/10 – First round of Clomid (50mg) after provera to start my cycle. Last cycle was 118d.
04/10 – Still no AF. No BFP. Waiting, waiting…
04/05 – Met DH
