Today I stumbled upon this Board and I am hoping this will help me find peace or at least it brings me to a place where I am not alone in my infertility struggle. I am the oldest of 8 kids...Some are full,

I totally know what you feel like when you say you feel like a misfit. My sister got pregnant accidentally and I felt like I was broken. It was devistating and I had a hard time coping with it. However the ladies here were such a profound help. It is relieving to be able to speak freely about these issues and have someone understand. Our emotions are so raw during this struggle that it takes other women who know what this is like to lean on.
Are you planning on trying any more IUI maybe with different meds? Let us know what your next step is. I wish you much luck and baby dust!

Sorry that IF has brought you to this point, but I do agree that finding other women out there who know what we're going through can be very helpful.

Hey there! Glad you found us!

I'm definitely in the same boat as you. We haven't found the right drug combo to get any mature follies either. DH also has some issues so we have a double whammy. I'm hoping weight loss will increase my sensitivity to the medications and that next time we try something, it will work. I am also surrounded by Fertile Myrtles. My sister and also my best friend get pregnant if their husbands look at them. My sister has had two "oops" pregnancies and my bestie just told me she is pregnant for the second time over the holidays. Her first just turned one in October and she got pregnant both times the very month they started trying. I'm happy for her, but yet so frustrated and sad. I had a good cry so that made me feel a tad better. :) I also want to believe that everything happens for a reason, but I struggle with that with my infertility. I just don't understand what the reason could be for denying my dream of becoming a mother. I wish I had the answers!

Again, I'm so glad you found us. It's so wonderful to be able to talk about IF with other women who won't judge you or dismiss your feelings. We're here for you!
