Hi everyone, my name is Amanda and I am 28 years old. I have a son that will be 5 next month. I was always told I could not get pregnant on my own and we were very surprised and blessed with him. I also have a daughter in heaven that was stillborn 3 years ago this July. I was on medication to conceive her. We started TTC again about a year after my sweet baby went to heaven and months of medication and 2 IUI's later we still have not conceived. I am currently working on getting myself healthier while ttc. I take daily pre natal vitamins and my husband and I both take extra folic acid. Oh, and by the way, I have unexplained infertility. My husband's counts are great. I am looking for any advice and most if all support and friendship. I do not have any friends that are going through anything like this. I struggle daily with grieving the loss of my daughter and struggle trying to conceive. I am blessed with an amazing husband of 9years and a fantastic little boy that is my world. I homeschool my son so we stay very busy. I appreciate any and all feedback. Thanks so much!

Hi Amanda,
Welcome to the board. I'm sorry not wo have welcomed you earlier, but I've been away.
I'm Rachel (35) and married to Lemuel (36) for 5 years. We've been TTC#1 for almost 4 years. I have one fallopian tube that's blocked, but the other works, so I guess we have unexplained infertility too.
I'm so sorry for the loss of your daughter. I hope that this will be a safe place for you. I also hope that you will be blessed with a BFP soon. In the meantime, it would be great to get to know you better. I'm CL for the board, so let me know if you have any questions. I hope that you'll feel at home amongst us.

Welcome to the board, acasleton :) I'm so very sorry about the loss of your daughter, my heart goes out to you. Does your doctor want to try IUI again, have you discussed changing up the meds a bit?
