Hi Sinan,
you could try to solve the recurrence equation that defines your continued
fraction:
i.e.
f[x_]:= x+(x+1) / f[x+2];
with x=1.
Also try to solve separately the 2 recurrence equations:
RSolve[{A[k + 1] == (2k - 1) A[k] + 2k A[k - 1], A == 1, A == 1},
A[k], k]

RSolve[{B[k + 1] == (2k - 1) B[k] + 2k B[k - 1], B == 0, B == 1},
B[k], k]

and the limit of their ratio exists and it is the value of the continued
fraction:

Limit[A[n] / B[n] , n->Infinity].

You are now busy little job ;-)
