I posted in the August check in but figured I should properly intro to this board. I'm 36, H is almost 32. I'm active on TTGP but as others have said, it's nice to be among my own
people. I also side eye the 25 year olds who lament CD1. Not that I
don't sympathize, I do, but I'm less sympathetic when they have a decade before their fertility "dramatically declines" and I'm a year beyond that.
I did RE testing last November and had fibroid surgery in January, for the second time. The first time was 4 years ago because the fibroid was the size of a grapefruit and causing problems I didn't know were problems until it was gone.
We're trying on our own for one more cycle, then my RE said he wants to do medicated IUI to "improve our chances." I'm wary only because the IUI procedure isn't covered by insurance. Meds are, so I don't know how much that would defray the cost. I'd prefer to do it the free way!
And as I said in my title, Dorothy is my hero. I wish I had half the sass she did.
I look forward to the conversations about dentures and epsom salts with you all!
