Hi all,
it's been about 5 months since i've been on this board. I was in my 2nd cycle of iui and all the craziness that goes with it. I had to stop for a very personally family crisis and in that time I have gained 20 pounds. I have also noticed that I need to have major dental/gum work done. I really want to go back the the fertility doctor I was seeing, but will I be able to safely have my gums done while pregnant? I just don't want to take even more time away (time that I so deperately need) to work on the gums. I'm 44 yrs.Old and long for a child of my own. I can't imagine my life without a little one. Also should I be embarrassed to go back to the fertility doctor after leaving 5 months ago and didn't really let them in on the loop. Would it be weird to go back to him?
Any advice would be soooo appreciated!
