Welcome ICLW

Welcome ICLWers! This is my third time participating - 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 out.

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. We were supposed to do a FET last week but at one of my last ultrasounds before the transfer they found some problems with my left tube. My cycle was cancelled and I am having surgery on Friday. We are hoping to try the FET again in September or October.


  1. Hi Beth, stopping by from ICLW and so sorry for your ectopic pregnancy. I wish you all the best for your surgery on friday and I'll keep an eye out to see how your transfer goes after the summer! Love, Fran

  3. Hi Beth! Thank you for the comment you left on my blog today! I started my blog for the very reasons you described. I had to start writing since I couldn't talk about it the way I wanted to.

    LOTS of good thoughts for your surgery on Friday!

  7. Best of luck with your surgery, hoping the transfer goes well for you and that you get your much longed for 2nd bubba sooner rather than later.

  8. Here from ICLW. Hope you are recoving quickly from your surgery. How horrible to have a tubal pregnancy from IVF! I used to think that wasn't possible. Now I'm in the middle of IVF myself and it's scary all the things that can happen!
    Love your blog title and picture. This week I've actually been photoshopping a picture of Dorothy for my blog. It's kind of funny I think - I'll forward it on to you if you shoot me an email (I don't see your email address on here). Best wishes.
