Hi! I am a long time lurker and would like to join you all! After 6+ years of battling IF my DH & I have finally saved enough to try IVF. I finally got pregnant in 2009 but it resulted in an ectopic pregnancy and I lost my left tube. I hope to join in the journey of IVF with anyone else going through it. My baseline is Jan 3rd. I am very excited but very nervous.
