Hi everyone, I've been lurking and wishing the best for everyone for quite some time now. I'm GoldenKeys... unfortunately I am not new to infertility treatments and have been trying to have our first for more than three years. I'm here to give support, to help any way that I can as a moderator for the Infertility boards, and to hopefully make some new friends in the process.
DH and I met later in life but I already knew that I had fertility issues before I got married. I had several losses in a prior relationship but had stopped TTC'ing when we realized that the relationship was not working. I am now married to the love of my life! However, the goal of motherhood has been very difficult. I had a fibroid removed (myomectomy) and six rounds of IUIs without success.
Going through this grueling process has been devastating financially and emotionally. (I'm doing better now though) IF has also forced me to become a huge medical advocate for myself and an avid reader about any subject concerning TTC. It's crazy how much bad information is out there. I joined the support group RESOLVE two years ago and I not only attend meetings but have gotten politically active about healthcare reform. I have seen a lot of success IF stories IRL from other couples and this gives me hope for myself and others too.
I put my highlights in my siggy. I hope that you'll have me.
Married for 7 years, TTC for 4 years
