Well hello there fellow bloggers! 
This is my 3rd ICLW and I look forward to reading other's stories, finding some new blogs, and hopefully gaining a few more followers on mine.

Brief history (stolen partly from the last ICLW)

I am 30 years old (31 in 4 days!!) and My Love is 33 years old. We were married 10 years ago.

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! Her birth story.

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,
5 IUI's,
all BFN's...
3 years TTC#2 this month.

typical PCOS ovary w/1 large follicle
CURRENTLY: I am 10 days into this cycle with Femara and  injections...2 vials of Menopur daily...went in Friday for an U/S and had 3 at 10mm and 2 at 12mm, but my E levels were REALLY low (33) they are likely cysts.

 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.

I am going to ask and answer a few very random questions for my bloggies:
1. How tall are you?
I am 6'3" tall. No, really, I am. 

2. What is the sexiest thing about your partner while you are TTC?
I love that he is so supportive and helpful around the house, especially when he sees I am bummed out from failed cycles or bad news.

3. Do you play an instrument?
I did in high school. I played the French Horn, but do not play anything anymore. 

4. Do you play sports? 
I bowled, golfed, swam in swim team, and played some volleyball in high school, but could never run. I SUCKED (still do) at running.

5. What is your favorite body part?
I would have to say my legs. I have very long legs and I think they look nicely shaped. 


  1. 1. How tall are you?
    I'm a full foot shorter then you are, I'm 5'3

    2. What is the sexiest thing about your partner while you are TTC?
    He was all into what was going on ... understanding charting when we did it... and all of that.

    3. Do you play an instrument?
    I taught myself how to play the piano ...

    4. Do you play sports?
    I go bowling, not very good ... but .. I have my own ball and shoes, that makes me special right? LOL... other then that, the only sport I do - is chasing after the kids...

    5. What is your favorite body part?
    My hair, I have great hair .. wish I hadn't chopped it off recently ... but I did... I could say something profound like "my stretch marks because they are the essence of my miracles" but ... LOL...

    Happy ICLW from #86 :D

    I'll try to answer your questions:
    1) I'm 5'5"
    2) He never cared about timing it or not, he just always wanted to have fun!
