Anything else you'd like to add? This forum already seems like a great place for support, advice and rants. Can't wait to "dig in"
How did you come up with username: I enjoy outdoor activities and my house is in the woods
How long have you been TTC: since Nov 2013. I got pregnant in December but miscarried around 7 weeks. I waited one cycle then started trying again in March.
How did you find APA: I came across it during my extensive Google searches leading up to my miscarriage. I was looking for a reputable site for information and wandered over to the forum section. I admit that I have been stalking ever since. You ladies are so supportive of each other!
I want to say how excited and happy I am to have found this board. I have lurked on a few other boards, and it seemed like the posters were anything BUT supportive. (I'm sorry, run FAR away from cafemom!) I finally chose to stick around this board because everyone here seemed so lovely and supportive, and that is exactly what I am looking for. I'm interested in meeting other people in the same boat, offering support to others, and in turn, gaining trust and support of the members. I read all the newbie stuff, and I'll do my best to follow it!
What is your name (or a name you'd like to be called)? My name is Michelle, and my username is Magic_Mikki.
How did you come up with your username? My first name is Michelle, but my family has always called me Mikki (short for Michelle). My very first screen name and email ever, when I was in middle school, was Magic_Mikki. I have since ditched the email, but always kept the screen name.
How long have you been TTC? My husband and I have been trying to conceive for about a year. I went off birth control in March 2013, but we didn't start "actually" trying until last July 2013. In August I started using OPKs. In January 2013 (a few months before we started TTC) I had been to the doctor who had diagnosed me with PCOS. Since then, in January 2014, I have had labs redone and they have come back normal. Yeeeey! But, we're still TTC so our next step is that DH needs to do a SA. I have FINALLY found a doctor that is taking me SERIOUSLY and it feels so good.
How did you find out about APA? I used to be a very active member of another board that was smaller and more intimate. I made true friends on that board. But that board slowly died down, and the group of us that became close created a closed, private Facebook group. When DH and I decided to TTC #3, I consulted my friends in that group and one of them sent me here! She was an active member here at one point and only had good things to say about. (The conversation came up in that group because I was struggling with all the mean, negative trolls that were on another site, and I reached out to those ladies for their opinions on good forums.)
Anything else you'd like to add? I already have two children (5 and 7) from a previous marriage. DH and I married last year, and he does not have biological children YET! He is a wonderful man, and treats my kids like his own. I would be honored to share the stages of child-bearing with him! That is about it, for now!
My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for about a year now. I know this means I should be posting in the veterans forum but I don't really feel comfortable posting there yet because I have not done nearly the same amount of research or doctor visiting as the other ladies. Honestly, it seems a little intimidating for me. So I hope no one else minds if I hang out here for a while.
What is your name (or a name you'd like to be called)? I respond to Hayasaka, Midge or Jessie.
How did you come up with your username? Hayasaka is a web comic character I just adored in high school. I have used this name in some variation for almost every account I've made online since my sophomore year in high school.
How long have you been TTC? As I said at the top of this post my husband and I have been trying for around a year. I had my last depo shot in April of last year. And at our first wedding anniversary in July of last year we stopped using condoms. So far, no dice.
How did you find out about APA? I originally signed up for this site a long while ago when I thought I was pregnant. Thankfully, I wasn't pregnant then! Life was a complete mess. I came back after having completely forgotten about this site until a Google search of a possible pregnancy symptom reminded me.
Anything else you'd like to add? My husband and I have been together for ten years (as of last week!) but only married for two. I have a sneaky suspicion that it was the two years I spent on depo that have made getting pregnant so hard.
What is your name (or a name you'd like to be called): Julia or Jules or cowgirl
How did you come up with your username? I have always loved horses, and cowgirl2213 is just my go to name 22 is my birthday and 13 is my DH and 2 of my children's birthday plus it is our anniversary. Basically 13 is a really lucky number for our family and Friday the 13th is a family holiday!
How long have you been TTC: For this child we have just started.
How did you find out about APA? Honestly I found it from Google. or an EX friend of mine mentioned it. I joined in 2010 like days before I found out I was pregnant with my 3rd daughter.
Anything else you'd like to add? I have 3 girls Kiara who is 10, Serenity who is 8 and Faelyn who will be 4 in September. I have also had 2 miscarriages between Serenity and Faelyn. I am praying that I don't have another.
Welcome Julia! Hope your TTC journey is short and sweet!
Me-Kelly (29) DH-Phillip (33) 2 unexplained losses. Ready for a rainbow baby!
What is your name (or a name you'd like to be called)? Tracey
How did you come up with your username? I just got married in 2014, and its my lastname.
How long have you been TTC? Starting this month.
How did you find out about APA? Doing a Google search.
Anything else you'd like to add? I have a 7 year old daughter from a previous relationship that never ended in marriage, and I had 3 miscarriages before she came along.
My name is Michelle
My username is part of a nonsense name (Minky Boodle) from a cartoon I used to watch, Space Ghost Coast to Coast. It always cracked me up.
Started TTC in April, so 5 months now.
Google led me to APA, when doing my infertility research.
I've been married 7 years, but been with my husband for a total of 18 years, we were college sweethearts. In all that time, we've never had a close call, never late, no accidental pregnancies in spite of only being on the pill for 2-3yrs when we first got together, then only withdrawal method since then. So I'm inclined to think that on probability alone, odds are something is wrong. Because I'm 37 and have no time to waste, I just had my first visit to a fertility specialist. Hoping for the best!
