I'm Back :o( — The Bump
Secondary IF

I'm Back :o(

SO after a much needed hiatus after 2 rounds of clomid with TI, 4 IUIs with injectibles,  an IVF cycle, 2 chemical pregnancies, and a summer of trying on our own, I am sad to report that I am not pregnant.  I thought for sure that once we switched REs back in April and I got my PCOS diagnosis, which I am now on Metformin for, I would be pregnant, but I'm not.  If I do say so myself, I've done a pretty damn good job at remaining optimistic and trudging through, but I can't lie, its getting near impossible to remain hopeful.  I was so confident that it was going to happen that I pushed off doing IVF again until November from our initial September start date.  Anyway.....I'm back.  SIGH!

I've followed the board since I left in April and popped in to support those I know from time to time.  I'm sad for those of us that are still here and feel bad that there are so many newbies.  However, I am happy that there is this amazing board to help us all through. 

So that's the re-introduction that I've been dreading to post.  I hope that everyone's stay is short and sweet and we are all blessed in no time.

    Keep it Natural, Baby!
  • Welcome back! I've SO missed you!

    Selfishly, I'm glad to have you back around, even though I really wish you'd had the luck of Pixie and JamieBeth.

    My 3rd-and-final IUI is scheduled for Thursday and Friday, assuming all goes well at my Wednesday u/s.

    In line with your Reiki in a way, I've been really been trying to focus differently during acupuncture, and have been doing a yoga for infertility DVD that has different workouts for the menstrual, follicular, ovulation and luteal phases. And taking my chinese herbs that totally have my in a better place.  And my midwife gave me some different herbs, so despite our major IUI/femara/menopur/hCGtrigger/lutealhCG intervention, I'm trying to have some natural stuff in place, too.

    Let's get some old timers off this board (except to lurk)!
