Welcome ICLW

Welcome ICLWers! This is my second time participating and I am very excited - I can't wait to meet new people and find some great new blogs to add to my list. If you are visiting my blog for the first time, you will find that I pretty much only write about our infertility. I have an IRL blog that talks about our life, our son, etc. and frankly I don't have time to write about it twice. This is an anonymous blog...that isn't becuase of you. I'm not worried about you finding out who I am, I am worried about people IRL finding out about the blog. I started this blog becuase I felt like most people IRL didn't want to hear what I really was thinking or feeling. If they hurt my feelings or make me mad, I want to be able to write about it without fearing they may find it.

If this is your first time here, my husband (W) and I are trying to get pregnant with our second child. We had our son (Jr.) in 2007 with the help of Clomid and began trying again in June of 2008. So far we have done 5 natural cycles with Clomid, 3 Clomid IUIs, 1 Clomid/Follistim IUI and 1 IVF. I did get pregnant from the IVF however we found out at 6 weeks that it was an ectopic pregnancy in my left tube. Becuase of the Methotrexate used for the ectopic...we had to take a 3 month break from TTC. It was great to take a break from the drugs, the appointments and the stress, but we are at it again. I started Lupron for my FET about a week ago and we are scheduled to transfer on July 13.

I hope you stick around and read some of our journey...


  1. HI :)
    here for ICLW...and wishing you luck with #2. It's been a long 2 yrs and you deserve that BFP and new child that you are wishing for.

    I am also so sorry about your loss. HUGS

  2. Hi!

    Happy ICLW

    Best of luck with this round of IVF. I hope it's your round. We have just start ttc number two. I know the journey can be long and stressful! Hang in there!! ((Hugs!))

  3. Found you on ICLW! I am #42.

    We ended up doing 12 rounds of IUI both medicated and natural and it wasn't in the cards for us. We ended up finally getting our BFP after our 2nd IVF...(with ICSI). WE also have babies born in 2007....

    Hoping you have a great day!

  4. I totally understand why your blog is private. I sometimes feel that I can't fully express my feelings at the chance of hurting someone that I loves feelings.

    Best of luck to you!

  5. I know exactly what you mean, my TTC blog is also anonymous. No one in IRL (besides DH) even knows that I blog and I would be devastated if they found out because everything I write in it is so personal. Plus I occasionally vent about them too!

    Best of luck for your FET.

    Happy ICWL and thanks for stopping by my blog.

  6. Best of luck for your transfer.
    Now I know that I will cry at ToyStory as well. I'm a sap.

  7. So sorry for your loss...wishing you all the best with the upcoming cycle!!

  8. This is my first time doing ICLW. I have really been enjoying it. It's been fun reading so many new blogs!

    Good luck on child #2 :)
