Re: Journey to Conception group grads!

I had my dd 6 months ago....IUI. No, I've not had any doctor suggest birth control to me. They will answer questions when I ask first. I feel that my infertility issues could be related to previous birth control I was on in addition to other things. I am against going on any type of hormonal birth control.

Right now, we are not specifically TTC but if we had an unexpected pregnancy, we would be excited even though our baby is only 6 months old.

I have heard that mamas with infertility can sometimes have the floodgates open in the baby department by having that first baby....like it kicks you up a notch since your body knows how to handle a pregnancy now. Not sure how true or untrue that is. I just seem to hear it a lot with mamas that had to wait 6 months or a year for a baby...not really from mamas that had to wait years though.

Re: Journey to Conception group grads!

I didn't have an IUI or IVF, but I have never been able to use hormonal birth control. It get sicker than a dog. I throw up all day every day while on it. ( I get really bad HG during pregnancy up until the last two months) Condoms are our birth control until we are ready to NTNP or TTC again.

No BCPs here, but I didn't end up needing IUI or IVF-- we needed meds to get pregnant the second time around too...

And Stephanie, your little man is SO STINKIN' CUTE! Congrats mama!
