Newbie here!

Hello all,

I'm trying to find a good forum that I can express fears, hopes, good news, bad news, anxieties and all the rest of the emotions I'm feeling. None of my friends, or my husband, really understand the roller coaster I'm on with the TTC meds and the let downs and build ups. It's great that they are trying to be supportive, but sometimes I just need someone to understand that going to the fertility doctor for an internal ultrasound and bloodwork makes me a little nervous.

I am on my second round of Clomid, and my cycle does not adhere to the usual cycle of what the specialists are telling me, so I have to go in to check things out once or twice a week so we don't miss the opportunity (even with using a digital opk every day). While the facility makes it SO quick and SO easy, and they are super nice and efficient, it still doesn't make it any less nerve wracking or daunting. I can't help but be a little overwhelmed, but all I get from people is "there's nothing to be worried about until they tell you there is, so stop stressing b/c it's going to ruin your chances of having a baby." Literally.....like I'm doing all this to just sabotage our chances.

I just needed to be able to talk to people who understand what we're all going through here!

Thanks for letting me vent!!!

Hi Alison!

I too am on Clomid, ultrasounds, and trigger shots as we are TTC using IUI. I've been TTC for almost a year straight now, and finally started seeing an RE about 5 months ago (we did IUI's at home previously).

I'm sure everyone here understands how overwhelming and stressful this journey can be - although they have good intentions,
