Welcome February ICLWers


Hello ICLWers!

I can't believe it's time again for ICLW. I missed the January ICLW. Actually I thought I signed up for it, and then found out it didn't register. I was probably too late.

Anyway, I've been a bad blogger. It's been more than a 2 weeks since my last post. I thought I was doing so good, and then I fell off the bandwagon. Again.

Anyway, if you are now to my site, welcome. If you've been here before, thanks for stopping by again =)

Our story: In a nutshell, Babe (DH) and I have been TTC for over 7 years. Yikes! It's been seven years! We were first diagnosed as having "unexplained infertility", with 4 IUIs and some surgeries thrown in for good measure. We have done a total of 3 IVFs, with the last one just completed in July of last year.

Based on the last 2 IVFs, my RE determined that we have low egg quality issue. Well, after TTC for 7 years and me turning 38 in August, I suppose age is a factor. I wonder if egg quality was an issue 4, 5, or even 6 years ago when we first started trying? I guess we'll never know.

For now, we are "taking a break" from TTC. It's nice to be able to just not think about what cycle day it is, having to avoid alcohol, sushi or soft cheeses, taking prenatal vitamins, etc. I also started a new job in September, which is keeping me really busy. We will probably do another round of IVF in the next few months since with my new job, we get insurance coverage. When I did my IVFs, I was not working. Now I am not looking forward to working and going through the IVF regiment at the same time.

So stick around to see how this all plays out!

Facebook Got Me Again.....

I saw this tonight on Faceb.ook .....

[Insert name here] is EXPECTING AGAIN!! I know, I know it's pretty crazy isn't it? I really don't want to believe it myself. I wasn't going to put it on here, because it will be obvious soon enough, but thought I needed to make it official. I mean who would have guessed AGAIN!! So now you know, it's official. We are expecting *frigid weather* AGAIN tonight and tomorrow!! **Re-post if you have any sense of humor.!!*
ha ha got ya!!!

When I first read this, I thought "Crap! Not another Faceb.ook pregnancy announcement! "  Then I thought what a stupid post!

Yup, Faceb.ook got me again!  Not sure whether to be pissed off, or just relieved.  I guess I'm relieved.

Thanks, I have a sense of humor ........ but no thanks, I'm not re-posting this.

For those of you not in the Midwest, or have not been up to date in US news, here's what's happening in most of the Midwest of the United States.  Check out this video.

I found these hilarious videos.  They are just dripping with sarcasm!  No explanation needed.
