Happy ICLW everyone!
Hello to those stopping by from ICLW. If you are new to ICLW, it stands for International Comment Leaving Week. If you are new to my site, welcome. If you've been here before, thanks for stopping by again. It's been a while since my last ICLW entry, since I went missing in action for a few months last year after my last failed IVF.
Our story briefly: Babe (hubby) and I have been TTC for over 8 years (I cringe every time I look at the number!). We were first diagnosed with "unexplained infertility" Since then, we done just about everything... clomid, surgeries for polyps, 4 IUIs, and a total of 4 IVFs, with the last one done last July. My RE determined that we have low egg quality, probably due to age (I am 38). However, we have been trying for more than 8 years, so we wonder if it had always been an egg issue? I guess we'll never know.
Since the last IVF July, we had taken a break from fertility treatments, and now wondering what's next. We are thinking our next step will be adoption, though we are not sure which type type yet. We are leaning towards international adoption right now. I just posted about why we think we will do international adoption in my last post. In fact, tonight, we will be attending an information meeting with an adoption agency that has has a program with the US Marshall Islands.
Will keep you posted!
