Hi ladies, long time lurker, first time poster here! I have to thank you all for all I've learned from these boards so far and also for helping me feel less alone as all my "real-life" friends are blessed with excellent fertility and many have recently welcomed (or soon to welcome) their own perfect little ones. So they sympathize but totally don't relate, and I don't like to talk about my struggles too much with them because I don't want them feeling sorry for me or feeling guilty that they have been so fortunate in that area. I'm so happy for them but it sure feels lonely on this island sometimes! A little about me, I'm 34, husband is 35, we've been married 3 years and on this IF journey since June 2015 - I was diagnosed with lean PCOS in November (I don't ovulate on my own at all) and have been riding the Clomid or Femara waves these past few months with 3 failed TI cycles and then 3 failed IUI cycles. We are meeting with our doctor tomorrow for our IVF consultation - I'm a little nervous but also really hopeful. I have had a rough go of it with the meds but just keep reminding myself that it's all going to be worth it one day! So I'm anxious to get started with this next step.
I was wondering, for those ladies who have gone through IVF, are there questions you think are really important to ask the dr. or any you wish you had asked at the time but didn't? Any suggestions you might have for an IVF newbie would be really appreciated - I already have a million questions but I'm sure there's so much I haven't thought of. I've learned this infertility adventure has been sprinkled with surprises and unknowns at every turn!
Looking forward to joining in the discussions more often now that I've "gone public." Thanks ladies!
