It is really great to have found this community. As little as a year ago I never would have dreamed I would need it, but in that time my whole life has completely changed. My very own Prince Charming (finally) showed up about 4 years ago, and then just about this time last year we got engaged. A very busy 6 months later we married and on our honeymoon he brought up kids (a subject I thought was closed with a big fat NO). Fast forward through lots of late night conversations and we decided we wanted to have kids after all. We had planned on waiting a while but a trip to the ob/gyn clued us in that our best years are almost gone and the clock is seriously ticking.
Now, all of a sudden I am starting IVF ( in 3 days ) and I am totally overwhelmed. The hardest part is finding doctors that are really looking out for my family's best interest. Between birthing options, vaccine concerns, and all the rest I feel like I am battling them instead of working with them to keep us safe and healthy. DH is very supportive but he travels for work and I am not familiar with the area I am in so I have been feeling like I am on my own in some ways. It will be really great to connect with people and have advice on providers instead of the constant fishing expeditions.
