Success after IF

**~**TTC Again Check In**~**

Hello Ladies! This check-in is open to anyone that is part of the SAIF community and is currently TTC again, either on their own, or via injectibles, IUI, IVF, adoption, etc.

TTC again, even after successfully bringing home a LO (or multiple LOs) is a stressful process for all of us, and this group is meant to allow us the opportunity to provide support and suggestions to one another, and to receive the same in return.

A check-in will be posted every week. Please send me a PM or reply to the check-in post if you would like to be added to the group.

Each check-in will provide the opportunity for you to provide an update as to where you currently are in your TTC journey following SAIF and a response to the QOTW.

**If anyone is interested in taking over the weekly check-in, please let me know and I will send you the Word doc I use for updates. It is not difficult or particularly time consuming, just trying to clear some things off of my plate right now.

QOTW: In a perfect world (ha!) how many children of each gender would your family include, and why?
