Introducing Mickey

AWC > Introduction  > Mickey > Introducing Mickey

Hello everyone! I am super excited I was asked to contribute to the Army Wives Club on my Trying to Conceive journey!!

Before I delve into my TTC history, let me tell you a little about myself. My name is Mickey.  I am originally from Fort Worth, Texas. I am a Music Educator and Army Wife.  My husband and I were high school sweethearts and have been married for 12 years in May 2013.  My DH is 31 and I will be 32 in a few months. 

We have been through a few PCS’ both accompanied and unaccompanied: Ft Sill, OK(accompanied), Ft. Bliss (unaccompanied), Ft. Carson (unaccompanied), Hunter Army Airfield (accompanied), and Ft. Lee (accompanied). DH is stationed at Ft. Lee, VA.  I am an avid music nerd and am currently in the process of getting my teaching certification transferred over to Virginia from Georgia.  In the meantime, I am substitute teaching in a nearby county to try to get some networking in and to get out of the house.

 We have two “furbabies”, Paper and Zeus.  Paper is our 11 year old crazy beagle that has been with me through all 4 of my DH’s deployments and every PCS we have been through.  Zeus is our full of personality 2 year old long haired Chihuahua. 

Now for a brief intro to my TTC journey, we began our journey in December 2009.  After a year of naturally trying, I was diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS).  This meant that I needed some medication in order to stimulate my ovaries. 

Medications I have tried are: Clomid (50mg and 100mg), Femara (5mg) and Follistim. My body did not respond to Clomid or Femara, but Follistim seems to be my ticket to finally getting my BFP.  After two miscarriages in 2012 (one in July and one in November), we did a blood panel for reoccurring miscarriages. The results came back positive for methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR).  This is a blood mutation which keeps me from metabolizing vitamins which are vital for fetal health, Vitamin B and Folic Acid. 

We are currently in our 27th month of TTCing, during this time I have found TTC community on FB and on YT.  I began my channel, TexasMickLoz, to document my journey and to hopefully help someone else in my position.  I found that vloggin has helped me vent and keep my sanity through this whole processes.  It is also a great form of support and knowledge.  Even though some days may feel like it’ll never happen for us, we are still optimistic that one day we will have a child in our arms. 

Thank you for allowing me to join this group and I look forward to contributing in the future. If you have any questions, please post them in the comments section below.
