TTC after 35

Lurking forever now introductions

So I've been lurking for a long time now and reading everyone's stories have helped me but I haven't really made introductions or posted much.

I have been TTC since June 2010. I have DX of PCOS and insulin resistance. I've been working with a RE since July this year. Had my first IUI after a round of femara and gonal-f injections. So I'm in the TWW and going crazy. What have some of you done during previous TWWs to keep your mind busy?

ME:37 DH:30

MARRIED: 07/19/2010, TTC #1: 07/19/2010

DX: PCOS, First IUI: 10/01/2015, BFN

Re: Lurking forever now introductions

  • Welcome to the board!!! Fingers crossed for your IUI! The TWW can be stressful, but i get through it by staying focused and busy on the many other cool things going on in my life. We also have a tww thread that is good for the expressing the stress and crazy emotions that can come up :)   Keep us posted!

  • I'm glad you decided to emerge from lurking! This is a great community.  I'm in the TWW too.  It's hard to keep distracted, but I just try to go on walks and keep busy with the other things at hand.  Of course, it's also pretty much impossible (for me) to not be hyper-aware of every little thing I feel that might be a symptom. :)

  • Welcome to the board! I have no tips for the tww because I failed at it. The second week was definitely harder than the first. Fx for you!
