Jumping on the bandwagon here. . . . the A to Z of TTC
A. Age when you started TTC: 27
B. Baby Dancing or Sex: Sex.
C. Children wanted: what ever we are blessed with
D. Dogs/Cats/Fill in Children: Beast of PUG the omni-fur-ous.
E. Essential Oils/Vitamins/Snake Oils: Flintstones (2 a day, prenatals give me a metal taste in my mouth)
F. Fertility Meds I’ve taken: Clomid, Ovidrel, Femara, Gonal-F, Menopur
G. Gain: I weigh about the same today as I did before we started TTC
H. HSG (Hystosalpingogram): had one in June of 08, identified as a subseptate uterus, removed 7/09
I. Infertile Pet Peeves: The advice people give you instead of just listening to you vent.
J. Job title: Social Worker
K. Kids' names you’re afraid will be taken by the time you can use them: Norah *already has but not by someone super close* Evan, Jonah, Emilia, Rebekah, David (I like all kinds of names)
L. Length of time TTC: 3.5 years
M. Miscarriages: zilch
N. Number of times you’ve switched OB/GYNS, REs, FSs: 2 OB/Gyn's & 2 RE's
O. Ovarian quality: Poor, they either produce or they dont. I never ovulate on my own. They are polycystic in nature, so the eggs are probably bad too. This is the source of all that is keeping us from a bfp I think.
P. POAS or wait for AF: Sometimes I cave and poas, but not usually. I know my body pretty well.

R. RE, OB/Gyn or other? RE
S. Sperm: Superman Steve
T. Time you tried naturally: from Nov 07 thru May 08
U. Uterus quality: Perfecto now that the septum has been removed and the small amount of endo was ablated.
V. Vagina: Normal
W. What baby stuff do you already have? A crib (hand-me-down from my sister) staring at me everytime I do laundry. A fishy night lamp I couldn't resist at a garage sale.
X. X-tra X-tra Hear all about it! How many people know the ins and outs of our crazy TTC journey? Everyone who reads this blog. My mom & sister. A couple coworkers. My in-laws when they ask.
Y. Yearly Exam (do you still go in even though someone sees your lady parts most months?): yes
Z. Zits: rarely
