Aw, damn.  Just missed it.  Hopefully they’re putting on more of these meet-ups.  I could use some peer support!

    I do believe, from the address on the flyer, that you are seeing my 1st RE. I just recently switched to a new one. I LOVED her but I wanted a second opinion and found one a little closer to where I now live. 🙂

      I bet it’s the same doctor. She’s super nice, and I have high hopes! 🙂

        Definitely the same doctor! She is very nice. I didn’t want to leave her but after 1 1/2 years working with her and no closer to being parents we decided it was time to get a new set of eyes on our situation. I am glad she has given you hope. I know she has a lot of success and even she had to admit, in our situation, she didn’t understand why I’m not getting pregnant.

    I’ve toyed with the idea of going to a RESOLVE meeting for many, many months now, but haven’t had the courage to go. I’m somewhat afraid there will be women and couples who’ve been through much more pain and heartache than I have… and they’ll resent me being there. Another part of me wonders how it could possibly help…. Curious what your thoughts are…?

    They usually meet monthly, http://www.resolve.org/support-and-services/

    Kboo, maybe it’s just me, but I feel like talking about infertility takes a lot of the stigma, and therefore the anxiety, out of the situation. I don’t have any close friends–the kind I talk to by phone, or know in person, or live close to–who have fertility issues. At least, not friends that are talking, anyway!

    I know people who’ve been through it, but I don’t have the face-to-face support of someone else who is RIGHT IN IT, like me. I think in this case, that checking out their meetings might be worthwhile. I also don’t have a ton of friends in the area that I know outside of work, or through my husband, so being able to meet someone who I already have something important in common with is appealing.

    I mean, if you hate the first meeting, it’s not like you have to go back, right? 🙂
