1st entry

So this is my first entry on my ttc blog. I decided to create a blog because sometime I feel that writing is the best therapy, good or bad. So this will help me put down my thoughts and frustrations on this journey of mine to ttc.
So let me start to introduce myself, My name is Gee (my blog name), I'm in my early 30's & I have
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome.
I'm married to a wonderful, kind hearted and the most beautiful man in the world. We've been married for a little over a year now, but we've been together since 2002. I also have 2 children from previous relationship. I have a teenage son who will be turning 15 next month and a daughter who's 7 years old.
My husband and I are in our 9 months of ttc our first bambino together. Late last year I was diagnosed with PCOS and 'til this day we haven't been able to get a BFP. We've been ttc since Jan, actively, but really for over 3 years. Jan. 2005 at 6w I miscarried. We had gone to our first doc appt and had our first u/s, but a week before we went in I started to spot. She did an u/s and she said that I had more blood in my cervix. She was a little concern and did explained to us what might happen within the next few days.

On New Years Day I miscarried. Having a m/c was the most devastating thing we had to go through. We had decided to let nature take it's course and not stress and try again. Well 3 yrs later with nothing I started to wonder why. I saw 3 different drs. My first dr appt she ran test and told me the news. She started me on Provera to induce my cycles. Well after a few rounds my cycles were acting weird and I stopped it. I went back and saw dr # 2 and he recommended me to chart my cycles. Since then I started to chart this Jan. I started charting with fertility friend and 'til this day I've only had 4 cycles. My longest cycle this year lasted 92 days without ovulation. That was hard for me because I just felt so frustrated and wanted to get it over with. But I have to say that every cycle is looking better and some shorter. My current cycle looks like this.

I'm currently 5 DPO and I'm officially in the 2ww. I'm suppose to wait until 09/17 to test, but if my temps stay high and keep getting higher I will test on Sun. I know that's early, but I see a lot of ladies from different chat boards I hang out in who test as early as 9 DPO and get a +.

Well anyways, I hope to keep this blog going.
So I as go through this journey I hope to find readers that will keep coming back. Here's to a new blog and a BFP...hopefully.
