VENTING!!!!!!!!!! — The Bump
TTC after 35


ok, i used to come to this board all the time.  I mostly read and learned from many of you, but didn't post that much.  We had unexplained infertility and were very lucky to have a successful IUI the first cycle.  Well, my DS is 2 1/2 and we love him dearly.  We have been wanting to grow our family for over a year but we were living with family and it just wasn't possible to try. so we decided to concentrate on raising our little one and TTCing a little later.  Well, my 40th bday snuck up on me and now everything has changed!!!!!!!!!!!

first, polyps! 2 hysteroscopys, then abnormal mammo all while trying to do IUI.  We got one cycle in and it was unsuccessful.  I know we were very lucky the first time, so I have been trying to remain optimistic.  Now, due to my abnormal mammo, i have to have a biopsy which means IUI on hold.  At least the good news is that i  can save my trigger shot for next month. yay!

just like all of you, I just want to be pregnant.  I feel like i'm running out of time every day. i know there are many who go through so much more just to get pregnant.  i just feel that my body and god destiny or whatever are doing everything they can to make sure that i can't get pregnant.

anyway, thanks for letting me vent.  Wishing you all lots of baby dust. :)

  • welcome back...

    You are welcome to post here.  There are checkins weekly.  You might benefit from secondary IF board as well.  This board is great and mostly drama free.  Many woman on here are TTC#1 and many if not most going through some sort of treatment.  We are open to those with children but if you do post about your child please put a warning in the subject line. We are sensitive to those who are struggling and those going through losses.

    P.S We won't flame you on this board for "baby dust" but many boards will.  The bump boards are pretty adverse to anything cutesy. 

    good luck!

    I'm sorry ladies but the term 'baby dust' creeps me out, all I can think of is ground up baby.  I don't think I was this sensitive to the term before my loss, but since then that term hits way too close to home for me.  You know, "ashes to ashes, dust to dust"... not cute at all.   :(

    At any rate, welcome to the board OP, we've all faced struggles of some sort and can relate and support each other through this trying process.

  • Thanks to all for your kind words. And I'm sorry for my faux pas. I guess I should brush up on my etiquette since it seems things have changed a bit since my last time here. I truly wish each of you the best and hope we can help each other down this difficult road.
