Hi ladies! My name is Tracee and as you can probably deduce, we’re starting clomid this month. Today actually. I’m trying not to be too nervous.
Any tips or things I should know? Anything I can do to increase our chances? Dr. said “Don’t piss off hubby” when I asked her, lol. My hubby is in the USAF and I think our process is a little different than most but unless we want to pay for it we have to do it their way. I haven’t ever been diagnosed with anything, but do get cysts. I’m pretty sure I have PCOS, I have almost all the symptoms. However, military dr.s… they don’t really care to diagnose any one with anything we’ve realized.
Quick infertility background - We have a bio son, age 11 who was an “oops”. Started TTC when he was 1 year old, maybe a few months before that. Around 2 years trying we found out hubby had a varicocele, he had that fixed. 4 years trying we got pregnant after an HSG test but lost the baby at 11 weeks. We lived overseas with military and they don’t really do anything for infertility and we couldn’t afford to pay overseas prices. So we weren’t able to do anything. In 2007 we moved to Texas and became foster parents and adopted 2 little girls in 2009. So we are TTC bio #2 but child #4. We have had no birth control for 10 years and also only done basic fertility work up a few times, no clomid before. That is the short, short version. So 10 years TTC, but naturally I guess. We also are still foster parents and have 2 foster kids currently who I’d love to adopt, but hubby still needs to come around. We’ve only had them 3 days
That is me in a nutshell!
