Welcome to The Sea of TTC.

What is TTC?
TTC stands for Trying To Conceive.

Why is TTC a sea?
Infertility is complicated. Multiple people are involved. Emotions are raw. Options are endless. Most options are expensive. Couples dealing with infertility can be tossed by emotions, swayed by advice, and sunk by bad news.

How do you know?
We are there. We have been TTC for over three years.

Here is a summary of our journey:
  • January 2011- Stopped prevention, assuming pregnancy was only months away.
  • August 2011 - Moved across the country.
  • May 2012 - Discussed infertility with doctor for the first time. Ultrasound revealed no problems.
  • August 2012 - Moved away from doctor.
  • March 2013 - Met with new doctor. Test results ruled out male factor infertility and revealed normal hormone levels. Doctor ordered HSG, then recommended visiting a specialist. 
  • July 2013 - Moved across the country again.
  • February 2014 - Met with new doctor. Create a plan for further testing.
  • March 2014 - Hysterosalpingogram (HSG) done. Slight scar tissue revealed on one side. Not enough to change previous plan.
  • April 2014 - Lab results normal. First round of Clomid.
  • May 2014 - After Clomid fails, decide to stop testing/treatments. Plan to take summer off and pursue adoption in September.
