Thread: READ FIRST and Sign the Welcome Mat!

  1. #751

    Default Welcome Mat

    This is a very appreciated thread - thanks...

    What is your name (or a name you'd like to be called)? Jen, Jeni, or Jennifer

    How did you come up with your username? "MSJENI" is what the day care kids have called me all my life - always worked with children...been doing home child care for almost 20 years now and feel it's my turn to be the mommy...


    How long have you been TTC? Started this "mission" a year ago (last August)... was pregnant for 4 months in between (Dec. to Mar.), but lost the baby - So technically, one year, but "trying" that doesn't count the pregnancy in between, nine attempts with donor insemination (single woman).

    How did you find out about APA? One of my loving friends in my support group - I'm fortunate to have so many people backing me up with this mission...makes a single woman feel so "un-alone"... She had done some online research on how to help a woman stay strong while going through the IUI sessions... Sweet, eh?

    Anything else you'd like to add? Since coming online to your site, I've felt less LOST and terrified... Sure, I've done the research on the science of it all and how it's emotionally difficult - duh, right? - But to actually read about others going through the same situation makes things seem completely different...I no longer feel this self-pity (as much) - just feel like this is tricky and other women are riding this wave, too... Thanks for everything - all of you...

    Hey, and I've only been on this site for less than a week!! Woohoo!!

    How long have you been TTC? We've just started after four years of marriage. We were set on not having children so we opted for a vasectomy before marriage. Rash, I know, but at the time it was right for us. Now my DH has had vasectomy reversal and here we are. We are very hopeful!

    How did you find out about APA? Found on search engine after typing "early signs of pregnancy"

    Anything else you'd like to add? I really enjoy forums and I hope to be able to share joy with you all.

    How long have you been TTC?

    That's a tricky one. We actually decided we'd like a baby last summer when our little girl was 10 months, but I was still breastfeeding and AF hadn't returned yet. It came back in January 08 about 8 weeks after I stopped bfing, but it was very light and I didn't have another one for about 3 months. My doctor referred me to a gynae clinic were I was given Provera and had a forced bleed from that. I also had blood tests and a scan done. The scan for PCOS was fine, but blood tests showed up a thyroid problem. When that was sorted my cycles went back to being regular and the gynae said to count TTC from June/July this year instead. So in conclusion we've been trying since July 07, but only with any chance of a BFP since July 08!!!

    I've been a member of a UK forum for years and someone posted a link to here.

    Talking new member

    My name is Kara and I came up with my screen name because I have a wonderful son, Christian, and he was born in 2004. I am hoping for a sibling for hime soon. I have been TTC for 7 months and have been off of my pills since November. It is difficult for me that I have to try this time around because I did not have to try with my son. It`s frustrating because everyone around me, trying or not, seems to be pregnant. I found this forum but doing searches about pregnancy online and was brought to this. I think it is a wonderful site for support for women (and men) going through the same problems.
