Well hello there fellow bloggers! 
This is my 2nd ICLW and I figured I'd give a quick rundown of who the heck I am!

I am 30 years old (31 in August!!) and My Love is 33 years old. We are celebrating our 10 year anniversary on Thursday!!!!

10 pretty awesome years at that! My Love is in the military and is always in and out of training...only adding to the stress of TTC, but it is a good life and I am proud of him.

My daughter: At about 25-26 years old we decided to TTC cycles were happening for me though, a year later, went to the Dr....tests and tests and tests later, low and behold I have PCOS. Got on Metformin and Provera...2 cycles later, BFP! 9 months later...a beautiful baby girl! I will be posting her birth story next month, in celebration of her 4th was kind of traumatic, but she is here and perfect (except for the fever she has tonight...poor thing!)

Anyhow...3 years ago, in August, we started TTC#2...I was already on Metformin and taking Provera to get things going...
Not happening.
Seek RE.
Clomid resistant...start injectibles...
1.5 years of fertility injections,
4 IUI's,
all BFN's...

typical PCOS ovary w/1 large follicle
CURRENTLY: I am 24 days into this cycle with injections...2 vials of Menopur daily...tons of ultrasounds...started with 3 eggs...then 3 slightly larger eggs...then 15 eggs (what the hell happened??!?!?!)...and as of today, 1 larger egg, 2 medium sized and well...that's all that really matters...the little ones don't count. I go back Thursday for another ultrasound.

 I love my miracle daughter and stay-at-home with her right now. I go to school online full-time and I help organize a large playgroup in our area. I love taking photos and I like to talk (a lot) which is part of the reason I started a I could stop talking my fertile friends ears off...they don't want to hear this stuff and I know & understand that.

Random facts about me: 
  1. I am 6'3" tall.
  2. I am losing weight and finally weigh what I did when I got married...still 20lbs to go (at least).
  3. I was an exchange student in high school and was fairly fluent in Hungarian.
  4. I never played basketball but I was the mascot.
  5. I want another baby very badly and get tired of people asking/telling me that one is enough. 
She deserves a sibling. She is awesome and would make a wonderful big sister.

I hope to "meet" some new friends this cycle of ICLW and can't wait to hear your stories. 
Blessings to all of us in whatever portion of the journey we are on...

Please feel free to explore and leave comments. :) I love comments...but who doesn't?!? 


  1. Great intro! I'm very sorry that people are telling you that one is enough. You/ I should be able to have as many children as we want; infertility is so unfair.

    Wishing you the best with this cycle. Good luck with the ultrasound on Thursday.


  2. Aww your daughter is beautiful!!! I don't know how people can say that one is enough! I am wishing you the best this cycle and I hope it is the one that leads you to your BFP!!!!
