Hi, I'm new here. DH and I just decided to go ahead with IUI and possibly IVF to conceive our 2nd child. Our DD is now 9 years old and was conceived on my 2nd cycle, the old fashioned way. We've been trying for about 7 years to have a second and have looked into infertility treatments a couple of times, but realize time is running out or has run out. We just never seemed to be ready at the same time before, but now feel like it's now or never. We just met with the RE last night. I'm about mid-cycle, so we will most likely try a few IUI cycles before going ahead with IVF. I had gotten used to the idea of having an only child, but DH has talked me into trying again. We have the option of going right to IVF, but I want to give IUI a chance. If nothing else, it will get me used to the idea of IVF and all the increased risks associated with that.
Wish me luck. I'm still a little shakey.
