This is my 4th ICLW and I look forward to reading other's stories, finding some new blogs, and hopefully gaining a few more followers on mine.
I am 31 years old and My Love is 33 years old. We have been married over 10 years.
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 #1...no 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 and some pretty scary complications in the end...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...
Clomid resistant...start injectibles...
1.5 years of fertility injections,
Only positive pregnancy test I've ever seen resulted in that beautiful baby above.
Just because I have one, doesn't lessen the want or hurt for another, though I wish I could say it does. Secondary infertility is horrible and traumatizing and hard. I do have my daughter, yes, but I want so badly to give her a sibling, to give My Love another child, to hold another baby of mine in my arms (and hopefully not miss out on the birth!). I ache for this and because I have a young daughter, we go to school, birthday parties, and playdates with mom's who have had their 2nd and 3rd children in the time we have been trying for one more. I put a smile on my face and cry on the inside.

I love my miracle daughter and stay-at-home with her right now. She just started going to pre-school for 2 half days a week and she loves it.
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 blog...so I could stop talking my fertile friends ears off...they don't want to hear this stuff and I know & understand that.
