Hi All...I'm not sure if any of you remember me. I was a casual user of The Bump TTC board in 2013. After 4 years of trying and DH and I are about to start our first IUI cycle next month. I'm caustiously optimistic. It's been a LONG journey. I was told by my first RE that I need to get down to a certain BMI before they would agree to treat me. Well...after struggling to lose the weight, which I nearly did...they were insistent that I get to their idea of proper weight before treatment. I ended up switching insurance and changing clinics. I'm now working with an RE who agrees weightloss is important, but that my age, 39, is more of a factor at this point. I'm still on my weightloss mission as well.
I would love to hear your experiences with IUI and what your thoughts are on plus-size TTC. I am also nervous to try new meds. It looks like I'm going to be doing clomid and a trigger shot. I'm trying to find out what the NAME of the trigger shot drug is, I forgot to ask my RE on Friday. Thanks!
