I am a constant lurker and sometimes poster to the IUI and IVF boards. I guess I don't want to admit to myself that my IF is maybe related to my age! Hence my not posting here before! (Ain't denial great).
I thought I would introduce myself. I am 41 with DS, 2 1/2, concieved naturally after 6 mo TTC. After TTC #2 about 8 months (now 4 mo ago), I stepped it up and started with an RE. We've now had HSG, cleared out a blocked tube and 2 IUI with clomid cycles. Turns out DH has varicocele and low sperm count (< 5 mil/ml). I am 11 days post IUI #2 and although I swore I would not take HPT until tomorrow, I took it this morning... BFN.
We are ready to move onto IVF and have orientation scheduled for next tuesday (unless AF doesn't show...highly unlikely). The waiting is killing me...I am trying not to obsess, but I am not succeeding. I am sick of the waiting and wish there was something I could DO!
How do you guys deal with not obsessing and all this waiting?
