ICLW February 2010

IComLeavWe
Hey, it's time for IComLeavWe again, also known as International Comment Leaving Week.  Time to meet new people, to find new and exciting blogs and to leave comments.   The goal is to leave at least 5 comments and return one comment daily, until the February 28th.

For those coming from ICLW, welcome!  I hope you make yourself at home and look around where you're here.  I'd love to hear and learn more about you.  If you are not already part of ICLW, make sure to contact Mel to be included in future ICLWs.

A little about me..... my Babe (DH) and I have been married for 7 1/2 years, and we have been TTC for #1 for 6 years.  We have "unexplained infertility" (I hate that term!), and have gone through 4 rounds of unsuccessful IUIs.  Last year around this time, we did one round of IVF overseas, but unfortunately did not result in a pregnancy.

We are now in the beginning of our IVF cycle.  I am currently on day 21 of BCPs (birth control pills).  I just had my first Lup.ron shot this morning (more on that later).  If all goes well, my expected egg retrieval should be during the week of 3/15, and my blast transfer would be 5 days later.  We are praying that 2010 will be the year for us!

I hope you stop by to visit from time to time.  I'd love to hear from you and read about your story.  Have a great week commenting!

  2. Brings me back to my IVF last September/October. You're at the exciting part where you're actually getting to do something! What I loved most about IVF was there was something to do nearly every day, and that made me feel like I was in control, like I was "working" at getting pregnant. On the brink of success. The transfer will be here before you know it. Good luck!!

  5. Good luck with this cycle! We did IVF two years ago, didn't work but are gearing up for another cycle this spring--surreal isn't it to be going through it again? But I do believe 2010 is the year of the baby!
