    Hi ladies my name is Nicole, I've posted before years ago in the pregnancy boards but this is a first for TTC. I have 1 daughter she will be 4 next month, it took us a year to conceive her and now we have been off and on trying for a few years. I took Clomid a year ago and just tried ovulation kits at home and no success. I've since seen a fertility specialist and this cycle (which started January 13) I did 100mg of Clomid days 3-9 and I got a smiley face on my ovulation kit on day 11, I went in they did an u/s and I had several follicles but my biggest were 2 16cm and 1 17cm. My dr told me to do my o kit again yesterday morning and if there was no smiley face to call in and we actually did our first IUI. So yesterday my DH took his sample in and I went in and they said his donation was great (he had been on meds to up his testosterone) and they did my IUI. Afterwards, my dr did another u/s and I had a 21cm follicle, 19.5 cm follicle and a 17cm follicle, he said they all looked great in that they could produce an egg. So now we just wait. So this is my story in a nutshell, I'm in nervous wreck and just praying it worked. I can't wait to chat with you ladies and get to know you!
