    Even though I've been here forever I'll sign in here so that anyone who is new will know a little about me:

    My name is Julie and it's what I like to be called!

    I came up with my username because my husband's name is Tima nd the guys at work call him "TimTim" and when I go into the dept. to see him they call me "TimTim'sWife".

    This is our 40th. month TTC. Yep, three years and four months. We have done clomid, IUI and IFV. We know our turn is coming soon! Oh, and we have unexplained infertility which is frustrating!

    I just want to say that TTC is a journey. If you are lucky you get pregnant fast. If you are like me and Tim, you learn how to be patient. Good luck to everyone!

    Hi,
    I'm new to this site. My DH and I have been trying to conceive for 14 months. I've been diagnosed with secondary infertility (unexplained). I have one child from a previous marriage. Now my DH and I desperatly want a child of our own. I'm on my 3rd cycle of clomid and second IUI. I'm praying it works this time! I have postive feelings about this time. Anyway, I'd like to hear from anyone going though a similar situation. Anyway, Good Luck to you ALL!

    What is your name (or a name you'd like to be called)? My name is Heather and I am 25 years old.

    How did you come up with your username? Jules is a nickname that we have for our six year old son--Julien

    How long have you been TTC? I actually got remarried in August 2006 and found out two weeks later that we were expecting. This was a huge shock because I was on the pill. Nevertheless we were thrilled because we were planning on trying for a baby right away. Unfortunately we lost that baby the first of september. Now that my body is back to normal we are ttc again.

    How did you find out about APA? A friend told me about apa when I was having trouble with the miscarrage and I am so thankful to her because this site is very helpful.

    Anything else you'd like to add? I am just really thankful that I was told about apa it was very helpful in dealing with the loss and now that we are ttc it is wonderful to have so many women in the same boat all supporting each other.

    What is your name (or a name you'd like to be called)?
    Lydia, and I'm 36 years old.

    How did you come up with your username?
    Actually, my parents came up with it, and I didn't bother to get more creative. I like my name.

    How long have you been TTC?
    One month or eleven months, but it's a little complicated. We were fortunate enough to get pregnant the first month we tried, almost a year ago, and I discovered APA about 4 months into my pregnancy. I hung out with the August moms and delivered a healthy baby girl, Esme Claire, two months ago. The day after we brought her home from the hospital we found her passed away in her bedside bassinette, from SIDS. DH and I just got the word from our hospital that no problems were found, it seemed to be straightforward (if that's possible) SIDS, and that any future children we conceive would not appear to be at elevated risk. My hormones are still settling down from the pregnancy, so although I've had AF, I'm not ovulating yet.

    How did you find out about APA?
    I don't even remember, it was so long ago. I lurked for a while before I became active, mostly in the August moms. I remember I checked out a couple of other pregnancy forums, and this seemed like the nicest one.

    Anything else you'd like to add?
    Throughout my pregnancy, Esme's death, the grieving process, and as I recover, APA has been an incredible support. People here knew more about my fairly uneventful pregnancy than anyone else besides DH, so there was a connection there. When Esme died, I got cards from people I'd never met in real life, and actually not just people from my close-knit August moms group. When a joy or tragedy happens to one of us, it affects us all. People who have been through similar situations have been an incredible help and inspiration to me. Now I try to check the Pregnancy Loss section to see what support I can offer to others when I feel up to it. TTC isn't a forum I've been in much, but hopefully I'll get added to the November testers soon and learn my way around.

    Hi.

    My name is Denise

    It was the first thing that came to my mind today. AF came today and I feel like a crazy person obsessed with having a baby!

    We started TTC in May. I had MC in July and we have been TTC since then.

    I googled and O calendar and found this site....I LOVE IT!!

    I wanted to join and get to know you guys, because all the people on here seem so sincere, loving and helpful. It is comforting to know there are others out there that not only understand your emotions, but sympathize, support , and most importantly encourage you. I look forward to offering my help and support to anyone that may need me.

    How long have you been TTC?
    We've been TTC since last January, conceived for the first time in May and lost the baby at 11 weeks (August 2006). We just started trying again after letting everything get back to normal after our loss.


    How did you find out about APA?

    Google When we conceived the first time and wanted to share the excitement with others (and not our families at that point) APA was where we landed.

    After months of 'lurking', I've decided to take the leap and actually join in!

    How did you come up with your username?
    It's a nickname from college - a combination of my first initial and the beginning of my maiden name that we used for computer log-in.

    How long have you been TTC?
    Feels like forever. Went off the Pill in Sept '05, started really TTC in Feb '06, got pregnant the first cycle, was diagnosed with a missed MC (and had a D&C) in May (thought we were 11w3d but it had stopped progressing at 8w3d) and we've been trying again ever since. So we're in our fifth cycle this time around...

    How did you find out about APA?
    Internet surfing while pregnant earlier this year but have really gotten addicted (!) ever since our MC.

    Anything else you'd like to add?
    I think the support and friendship people find here is really incredible and I know the knowledge I've gained just from poking around has been invaluable.
