Hi everyone! (new to the board)
Hey ladies!

I am new to the board and as of today felt I should move over here. As of this afternoon, my hubs and I are officially signed up for an IUI in August! Well, not signed up since I can't predict my actual O date, but my doc is penciling me in for the office to be ready for my IUI! I am a little nervous about the IUI. Not the actual procedure, but just if it will work. I know there is no way of knowing, but my hubs and I have been ttc for 2 years and we are just hoping this will work for us! I am not on any meds (so far), so I am a but unsure if I belong on this board, but I'm giving it a try. I just am looking for a little support (and hopefully give some as well!) as I don't have many people to tell about our troubles that will understand and it is somewhat lonely for me.

A little background on us: We are both 30 y.o. and in August, it will be 2 years of ttc for us. I had a laproscopy and a d&c last month that wound up finding I had a lot of endomitriosis (which I had never been diagnosed with before) and wound up losing one ovary and one tube to in the end. My hubs has a lowered sperm count with some low motility, but otherwise docs have said he is okay. He was also recently diagnosed with diabetes, but so far no one suspects it being behind our issues, so that is a plus. Our do. Did suggest that an IUI may be our best option, but was not a necessity, but we are going for it. We have been ttc for so long (in our eyes) that we want to do whatever we can do to get us to the end point - a family.

So, that is us in a nutshell as we start our IUI journey!

Baby dust to all on these boards!

Hello and welcome! IUI sounds like a good plan! I had a laprascopy in February to remove significant endo (I also did not know I had it) after 2 years of TTC with no luck. We had several failed medicated cycles and iuis before the surgery, good sperm count and only being 24 they were confused to why I still couldnt acheive a pregnancy and the endo seems to be the answer to why. I am now 5 weeks pregnant after my first medicated cycle and iui after the lap. Good luck to you!! KUP!

Welcome! That's where I started my TTCMA journey, too...with unmedicated IUIs. I hope it works for you!

Re: Hi everyone! (new to the board)
I also have been TTC for 2 years this summer but we started TTCMA a while back (this is my 3rd time doing TTCMA- i have 2 boys) and it does feel like a long while even tho many people have tried longer. It becomes a part of your routine in life and now I wanna bust out of this routine and start another y/k?
Do plenty of research and ask plenty of questions here! The ladies are very knowledgeable!
Good luck and I hope the IUI works and your stay is short!

Re: Hi everyone! (new to the board)
Hi ladies!

Thanks everyone for such a welcome to the board! You make me feel like this is a great board to be on already and I appreciate that so much! I have been lookin around the boards and already gathering more information for myself and to hear some of your stories. You are all so special to be able to help each other and be a great support, and I am looking forward to getting to know some of you too!

I am mostly just learning more about the IUI process that is to come for me, but also trying to deal with some things going on in hopes to keep from stressing out right before the IUI, but I guess I'll see what happens. Just trying to keep stress out of my life these days, but sometimes it is hard. Just got to stay positive though!

Thanks again for the warm welcome ladies! Baby dust to you all!!!

Welcome and good luck! Acupuncture or massage can help with the stress, if you are worried about that.

Re: Hi everyone! (new to the board)
I am so thankful to have found this board. The more and more posts I read I see how supportive you are of each other, and that is the vibe I was looking for in a place I can talk about my ttc journey and be myself! I have so many questions but don't know where to start, but I am trying to organize my thoughts to start really using these boards and all of you knowledgable ladies!!!

I was wondering though, I have heard from a friend who is a chiropractor how beneficial chiropractic care can be for all ages, and my aunt says her chiro says he can offer help with aligning a lady's body for pregnancy. So I am just wondering what your thoughts are on a chiro? I was thinking it may also help my stress levels. I know Leah you had recommended acupuncture or a massage - I would love a massage, but I hate needles and have never been able to try acupuncture because of this aversion.

Lucy S. July 29th, 2013 03:36 PM

Re: Hi everyone! (new to the board)
Yes I have read a lot on chiro to help with TTC! I tried it but I don't have anywhere close by I like so I gave up :(
I think it helps make sure the pelvis is aligned and I am sure it helps with blood flow.

mrs.ceebee.0915 July 29th, 2013 03:54 PM

Re: Hi everyone! (new to the board)
I have never been to a chiro so I'm a little apprehensive about it, but I also want to try as many options as I can, so I'm considering it. I'm debating now on whether try to go before this upcoming IUI or wait until the next? I feel like I am kind if sitting back just doing research and not "doing much" this time around since we decided to go ahead with the IUI. I know there are a few chrio's in my area (though I've never been to any) but I am going to try starting wih the one my aunt suggested. Hoping, hoping, hoping...

Lucy S. July 29th, 2013 04:25 PM

Re: Hi everyone! (new to the board)
Well I would do it... I didn't start acupuncture until a couple months ago and I wish looking back I would have done it sooner. I kept saying "I will next cycle".

Impatientlywaiting July 29th, 2013 05:02 PM

I second everything Lucy said about acupuncture. The first time I did it I got my first BFP that cycle... May be random chance but I def think it helped. Also the needles are hair thin... I can't feel most of them when the "tap" them in but the ones you can feel just feel like a tiny mosquito bite. And it's a huge stress reducer on top of all the bloodflow and ovary stumulation benefits
