Final Trimester - Hoping to maintain...
I'm Frances. From Dublin. Just bought a house with my BF of 3.5years and moved in in December (2012). We've been "unofficially" TTC for about 2.5 years with so far no success..
There are no issues that we know of, so I took myself off to the docs last July to have some tests done to see if its just been our time, or if there's something medical stopping.. So ATM we're in the process of having tests done to check that all is medically OK, that i'm ovulating as I should be and his swimmers and swimming in the right direction..
So far we've not taking temps or that but I do keep record of my cycles and dates of intercourse etc on MyCycles app.. When (am tryna be possitive here) we find out all is OK with us both I'll buy the ovulation kit n start taking temps n doing more to help us along the way.. For now its a waiting game..
So, so far I've had my Day 3 n Day 21 blood tests and my BF is due to give a "sample" in on the 24th of this month.. Then our next step is for me to have some dye injected to check for blockages in my tubes and then scans to check my reproductive system (I think).. For now all we can do is wait.. And the keep on at the fun bit
As with many of the diaries I've read on here I too have been losing weight both to get myself healthier and happier (in myself) and to help my chances of getting pregnant... So far I'm down 2.5stone and am aiming for another stone (at least) off.. So hopefully this year is my year...
If anyone has any questions/tips/advice please feel free to post..
Looking forward to chatting with people in the same position going thru the same train of thought as me

Hi all. Thanks for the replies, the welcome n the very kind reception
Look forward to sharing each n every journey with u
Well, this has been put on the long finger for a bit as my BF has gone n broke him arm
I blame him, but really we were very lucky in escaping a fire place explosion in our house with him just breaking an arm.. Was so bad we're told we're lucky to have both gotten out alive.. Him especially as he got the full explosion as he was sat directly in front of it...
His appointment at the hospital (to leave in his sample) is for tomoro so we'll get that in and get them getting on with their part to check that there's nothing medically stopping us...
Will keep you updated
Oh my goodness that sounds horrific! Glad you're both ok! Hope you get good semen analysis x
Yea was bad alright.. But we were extremely lucky.. So, the brightside

If there is any problem they usually repeat 3 times so should be accurate
Oh great.. Thanks.. Didn't know that
Im glad you're both ok (apart from his arm!!) X X

His count was normal, and my eggs are releasing so that good news... I have to take a prescription as my thyroid is "off" so they need to stabalise it as it could lead to early miscarriage should we be successful in getting pregnant...
So I've started taking that and my folic acid (I know I should have been taking that from long ago... bold bold girl!)
Next step is to go in and have a HyCoSy scan... So I've to wait til my next cycle and ring for an appointment on day 1.. As it has to be done between day 1 & 10, after bleeding has stopped and I was on Day 10 when I was there.. So next cycle it is!!! And
I've to go back in 6 weeks to have my thyroid tested again to check its normal...
I was baffled as I've only recently enough had a thyroid test and they said it was fine.. But she said if I wasn't trying to get pregnant its not at a level they'd treat, but my GP knows I'm TTC so doesn't make sense.. But its being treated now I s'pose... (Wonder if it has anything to do with my weight issues.....hmmmm)
Anyway.. Will update as n when
Hey Frances nice to see you on this part of the forum. I'm here too. Taking myself away from the ww mindset for a while, think its becoming too much about food and not enough about just making me healthy and happy. Don't know if you know as you don't seem to be on my ww page, but I'm trying for my third baby. Please come visit if you get a chance, can't remember what I called my thread but I'm sure you'll find it lol. I need a friend with a good head on her shoulders and the ladies on here all seem to be that.
I know you've been trying on and off for a while, I hope it happens for you and Jonathan soon!!! Laura xx
