Edit: Add your intros here!

Shall we do some intros?
I'm Peanut on here and Hitched. Got married to T last December and have just bought our first home in East London and moved in this weekend, very exciting! We have been TTC#1 for a couple of months now, I have PCOS and had a long cycle for cycle 1 so we'll have to see what happens this cycle. No fur babies either although we're hopefully getting a cat soon.

Hello from me too!

I'm Ducky. I always knew I'd have issues TTC as I rarely, if ever, ovulate due to a complete lack of cycle. After I married my H last summer, we decided to seek help for my lack of ovulation. It turns out my H has a poor sperm count and poor morphology, which meant we were referred straight for IVF. Hopefully we will have completed out first cycle by the end of 2013.

I'm Figaro. I was Mrs J to be over on Hitched and got married last June. We have been TTC ever since (so almost a year now). Our journey is not helped by the fact that H works away most weeks Monday - Thursday/Friday, so I am often sat at home alone with my cats when I'm ovulating.

Hey! For those who don't know already - my h and I married early last year, started ttc straight away and fell pregnant a couple of months later. Unfortunately that pregnancy ended with a TOP at 12 weeks for abnormalities found at the scan :(. H and I started ttc again soon after and we're now on cycle 9 with no luck so far :( I used to post on the ttc and mttc threads a lot but had to take some time away as was finding it all too hard, but now with the new board I think im ready to post again!
Hi to those who follow x

Ooh ok my intro...
I’m OB. I’m 23, husband is 30. We got married in September 2011 and started trying in November 2011. I was very lucky to get pregnant in Jan 2012 but unfortunately miscarried at 7 weeks. Been trying ever since and for some reason it’s not happening! I’ve had scans which showed one cystic ovary but my bloods came back ok. I’ve also had a lap which came back ok too. I put on a bit of weight after the mc so I’m trying to lose that before going to the doctors for a fertility referral, but so far I’m not doing too well (zero self control!). I have three fur-babies, two rabbits and one brand new puppy.

Ooh what puppy do you have OB? I have a border terrier but he's 1 now. I remember the puppy days well - the toilet training and the not taking your eyes off them for a second lol! So worth it though!x

Hi Everyone :) H and I married last November and we started TTC on New Years Day 2013. No luck so far but just trying to chillout and not get so worked up with it all. I’ve just got a new job, which I should be starting in the next couple of months and will hopefully be less stressful and more TTC-friendly! We have one fur baby, a rabbit, who is our practice baby so gets loads of attention and treats :)

Hi, i'm 34, have been married for 2 years and have been ttc'ing for just as long. I've recently been diagnosed with Premature Ovarian Failure which means we have only the tiniest chance of conceiving either naturally or assisted with my own eggs and so exploring the option of using donor eggs. Completely gutted, but am grateful that I at least have the chance to carry our child. Our next consultation is on 3rd July with a specialist in egg donation and POF.

CO, she’s a Shetland Sheepdog! We’ve called her Rosie. Shall I flash a pic?!
28/05/2013 at 12:41
Ooh yes would love to see a pic!

'm not sure how much i'll be on as i wasn't really for the idea of splitting the board BUT i will give it a go perhaps as a lot pf others seems to be looking forwards to.
H and i are officially not trying to not get pregnant and we'll see what happens. For those of you who don't *know* me i have a 15 month old daughter but a very chequered history with TTC and early pregnancy including multiple losses. The whole pregnancy was actually very stressful too! The road to getting my baby was not easy and i'm fairly anxious about starting the journey aging, hence the just not trying to not get pregnant for now! MTTC was a fabulous source of support and advice when i was previously TTC so i will try and dip into there as much as i can.
Also i hope perhaps i can be useful now and again, i charted successfully when TTC P and so i'm fairly good with questions on that side of things!

This was the first time we saw her...
And this is her now...
And one more (because I can’t resist!!)

Intro - I'm Rod. 27, H is 32, been married 18 months and started TTC Sept 2012. Fell preg in Jan 13 but discovered we'd had a MMC in March at our first scan. Now TTC again. I'm at the beginning of my 2nd cycle, around CD11. My cycles are a bit irratic so I have no idea how long it will be this month! DTD around the time i think I ov but dont use OPKs or anything.
Havent been on MD for a while now because I have been finding it hard seeing BA's and had to tear myself away from the Tri threads because I was still trying to follw my own non existent pregnancy - but now the TTC board is here I may be on here a bit more. Cant guarantee I will post all the time because I dont want to get completely bogged down in it again. I drove myself mad last time!
Love to all! x
