Welcome July ICLWers!

IComLeavWe
Happy ICLW everyone!  ICLW or IComLeavWe stands for International Comment Leaving Week.  It's a great time to find new blogs and meet new friends.

I will be turning 37 in less than 3 weeks (Ugh!!), and Babe and I have been married for almost 8 years.  We have been TTC for our first baby for more than 6 years.  It has been a very long and tough road for us.

This ICLW coincides with a pretty exciting time for us.  Babe (my hubby) and I just completed our 3rd round of IVF.  You can read about our egg retrieval last Friday here and our transfer on Monday here.  I am so excited to finally a have photo of our embryos, Icsi & Dicsi.  We had a BFN on our first IVF, and at our last cycle, our embryos did not make to to transfer.  We now we are optimistic and praying that this cycle will work for us.

I just completed my 48 hours of bed rest as of noon today.  So now I'm in the dreaded 2WW (2 week wait).   Any suggestions on how to deal with the next 2WW?  I'm thinking maybe a mani/pedi.

Also, I'm PUPO!  I'm pregnant until proven otherwise!

Thanks for visiting my blog, and I hope you stick around to see how this cycle plays out.

  1. I always try to read a good book...try the Twilight series. Easy reading that's entertaining - even if you are not into that kind of stuff.

  4. I think I'm almost just as nervous as you! LOL! I'm keeping all my fingers and toes crossed for you! How about making a 4,000 piece jigsaw puzzle to take your mind off 2WW? I just bought myself a 2000 piece one!

  5. How about going out to dinner with your DH or friends? To the movies or renting movies? I love renting movies when I want to relax! Mani/Pedi are always nice! Lots of +++ thoughts to you!!

  7. I agree with everyone who said read! Get some good chick lit (harry potter and twilight were good ideas as well). I've also used the time for scrapbooking projects. Keeping my fingers crossed that you get good news!

  8. i think a mani/pedi sounds great! as does a visit to the perfect bed and breakfast for some sleeping in with babe.... maybe toss in a good book and some delectable treats in your most favorite flavors! :) random long meanders down a beach at sunset... movie marathons :) happy pupo! praying icsi and dicsi make themselves really comfy and snuggle in!

  9. mani/pedi for sure will help pass the time. i also recommend retail therapy and immersing yourself in a really good, long, distracting book! i'll be thinking about you!
