How do people keep doing this?
I guess it's moving on for another month, so close to 2 years now. My DS wants a sibling so much but I am afraid he will be so old by the time one comes along he will resent the baby and they won't be close because of nearly 4 years (or more) between them.
This month may be my first IUI if with the timing the clinic can get me in. I feel like they don't favour IUI patients and it's all about their IVF patients.
I am not sure how I have made it this far without going completely bonkers. Taking time out every now and then from trying (mostly for medical reasons) does help.
I too want a sibling for my son as well. He is now five.
If we take time out I am not sure we will go back to TTC unfortunately. I had a CD10 scan booked, I hope I can get the time off work, it will all come a week before I have documents that need to be lodged for court so the worst week to be taking time out of work, especially as my appt for the scan is at 9:45 because thats the earliest they have because of theatre patients so it will be nearly 1 before I get DS to day care and me to work after the appt and driving home assuming the appts only take an hour (scan, meet with dr, meet with nurse, all with a 3 year old running around)
Can you drop DS off at day care earlier than normal to avoid that extra stress? (yep I have taken DS with me to an IUI appointment I just made sure he has plenty of things to do, like colouring in, ipad movies ect)
Not this time, we have a birthday party in that town the day before so to save on petrol costs we will stay up there the night. I won't have hubby with me either because he doesn't get his roster until lateish Sunday night so can't come. I will just take some books or toys for him, it will just have to be the scan he sits quietly for
I amso sorry you are having all this stress on top of stress.
I do wish you huge luck though.
Iui seems to have worked wonders for quite a few of the ladies here... So I hope it does for you too.
I'm not sure if the RE thinks we will be successful, he said we should be good candidates for it, but wanted to see us do 3 attempts before the end of the year, so not sure I should get my hopes up, though I guess with unexplained secondary infertility they don't have real answers as to what will work
*hugs* I hope your son behaves at the appointment! Also, that it helps/works! Unexplained infertility sucks! It's such a toll on your body, mind, and relationship to have to go back and forth to clinics. And if I recall, yours is far away!
I agree, how do we stay sane month after month of it not happening!?!?!? I guess it's the idea there is a baby at the end of it all - and that's totally worth it
I'm so sorry you have all this extra stress - it sucks doesn't it! We not only stress when it doesn't happen, we stress about what's wrong, and then stress about seeking help, and paying the medical bills, and getting time off from work, and if it's going to happen or not...then there is the paperwork, and phone calls, and research. boy it's time consuming!
I wish there was something we could do to make this easier on you...I know just talking and venting helps. (well at least it helps me!!!) We're always here to listen and give support!
