Hello Bump - I'm glad to have found your page. My name is Valerie and I'm 37 years old. I got married to the love of my life during COVID in February 2021. We wanted to wait a year before trying to get pregnant to have some just married time; in my thoughts at the time, pregnancy was going to be easy and due to me being older, and my husband about 8 years older than me, we wanted some time for adventure before children. We started actively trying to conceive in March 2022. We got pregnant in June 2022, and lost the pregnancy at 8 weeks. We didn't find out about the loss until 12 weeks. It's frustrating that we didn't know sooner - there was a lot going on in our lives at the time (my father in law had just died and there were/are many issues with settling his estate, plus we were traveling for a close friend of the family's wedding.) We started trying again in January of this year, and have not gotten another positive result. I've been working with a fertility specialist since this summer, and they dx me with a pullup that they removed. I was hoping I'd be able to get pregnant right away after that, but I haven't. Currently we're doing timed intercourse, (and we have been for 2 months - my pullup removal was in August. I'm not sure if I should give timed intercourse more time, or move on to IUI.
I'm really glad to have found this page, as I'm feeling quite lonely in my infertility. I have many lovely friends who are amazing and supportive, but I'm just not sure how to bring it up.
looking forward to getting to know some of you. Best wishes to you all.
