Hi all!

 

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 daysbigeyes.gif ) 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.

Welcome to Mothering!  My first was an IVF baby, and I remember that overwhelm really well.  The infertility forum here saved my sanity more than once.  I hope you find a good home here, and if you need to talk, feel free to drop me a PM! ;)

Congratulations on starting this journey!  It sounds like a lot of big changes lately.  It can feel pretty lonely, I think, in the beginning.  MDC really helps mitigate that--I think you'll find lots of support 'round these parts. :)

 

As Adina mentioned, you might find the Infertility forum to be helpful. 

 

Cheers, and welcome to MDC!

Hi there AdinaL and To-Fu! Thanks for the welcome. I have been reading there a little bit and plan on posting in the IVF forum shortly.
