Just wanted to intorduce myself. — The Bump

Just wanted to intorduce myself.

Hi Everyone.  I am 38 and my DH is 39 and we have been dealing with TTC for about 6 years now.  Here is a bit of our background.

We started our journey in 2007 right before our wedding and nothing was happening for us, so we began going to our Fertility Dr.  We did 6 months of Clomid and about 2 months in my husband broke his knee, so with that happening and 2 surgeries later, still no baby.  We decided to take some time off because my weight was also a factor.  I had GBS done in May 2011 and I have sucessfully lost 105 pounds and have kept it off.  So we decided that it was time to head back to the doctors and now we are back on Clomid (100 mg) and just did our 1st IUI on Tuesday, May 14th.  We have had every test done under the sun and the problem that we face is that the sperm is unable to get from point A to point B safely.  His counts were amazing and I had 2 follicles measuring at 18 & 19 the day before our IUI. 

 This has been such a long, crazy, heartbreaking journey for so many of us.

    Hey there!

    I'm sorry you've had such a long journey so far and I hope that your IUI works out this cycle. Congratulations on your amazing weight loss too!

    This board is for women who have spent 6mo+ on the Infertility board, and have built relationships and offered support to others on that board during their journey. It would be best if you introduced yourself there. You'll find more folks going through IUIs over there, and better support for where you are in your journey. Us veterans frequent that board as well.

    Best of luck with your cycle and I hope things go well!
