Welcome, ICLWers!

Welcome to anyone stopping by my little piece of the interwebz from ICLW! I love finding new blogs during this time of the month... and I love when new people find me! But really, who doesn't, right?

You've found me right at the start of our journey with our first round of IVF. After almost three years of trying, three rounds of clomid, and two IUI's with menopur, this PCOS-er is moving on and pulling out the big guns. I've got super cystey ovaries, so IVF is the best way to stim them and still control how many babies I pop out at the end :) We took our last BCP on Thursday, and are patiently waiting for AF to arrive so we can start our stims for the antagonist protocol. Either way, our suppression check is tomorrow, bright and early.

Aside from that, I'm your typical almost-thirty year old infertile. Lots of obsessing over each little thing, crying at HIMYM, wistfully staring at moms participating in stroller 5K's.

Oh yeah, also? I've sworn off sugar until I start stims. Today marks my 22nd day. Which, you'll notice, started on HALLOWEEN. I know not why I torture myself.

Stop by and say hi... I'll do the same!


  1. Yup, I cried at HIMYM too. I think I screamed first. As soon as she made her announcement DH knew it wasn't going to go over well. And yeah, next week is NOT a new episode either. GL with u/s today!!!!!

  2. 22 days with no sugar! Your pretty damn amazing!

  3. If you can do 22 days without sugar IVF will be a piece of cake! Oh, um, sugar-free cake!

  4. Way to go with the 22 days! Hope it's gotten easier now. Keep it up girl!

  5. wishing you the very best in your ivf cycle!!!

  6. Hi from ICLW!

    Best of luck for your IVF! Fingers crossed!!


You know you want to tell me how ridiculous I am...
