I have been hesitant to post because my DP and I both prefer to keep our personal lives private, especially with something like TTC. But in our brief journey with this so far, we been surprised and unprepared at times. I have already found guidance on this board, so I am looking forward to being an active part of the group.
We are currently in the 2ww of our first IUI. Today, 8dpIUI, my body is telling me that AF will be coming soon. So I have low expectations that this will be a successful cycle. We already had in our heads that the first cycle would likely be a bit like a test run. We are working with an RE office. Our experience with them so far has been mediocre. Hopefully things will be smoother now that we know a bit more about what to expect.
DP and I have been together for 7 years. It took us a while to get to the point where we both agreed that this is the way we will grow our family. I am regretting that we didn't start sooner since I am over 35, but I also know that our relationship works best when decisions happen organically, like this one did. Although I am worried about all that lies ahead, I am mostly hopeful.
