Hello ladies!! I an new to this forum, though I am not new to IV. Once upon a time, I started in an expecting club-July 2005. My oldest DD was born in June of that year and is now 5 and in Kindergarten. My youngest DD turned 4 in October and is in preschool. My DH and I have been married for 10 years, and are TTC #3 now, and have had 2 cycles thus far. (AF is just making her appearance now, unfortunately)
A little bit more about me-I am 35 and a SAHM. And I have a title now..."advanced maternal age." Yikes! I had always wanted a big family, but after my youngest was born, I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis, which is an autoimmune disease. I have a moderately severe case of it (those are their terms) and have had many ups and downs with that in the past few years, which has put any TTC efforts on hold (I was in a drug trial for almost 2 years, and not allowed to get pg less I risk being kicked out, then that med stopped working and now I am on something else). Because of quite a bit of predisone (corticosteroid) use in the past few years, my cycles are not being cooperative at all. I have an appt to see my OB on 12/1, and hopefully we can figure out a plan!
Oh, and to complicate things, lol, my DH really wants a boy, so we are trying to time everything for that as well. Eeesh.
So glad to be joining you ladies, and I hope and pray everyone gets a BFP very soon!!
