Happy ICLW!


IComLeavWe


Welcome to all you ICLWers! This is my second ICLW and I'm excited to see a few new folks visiting my blog.

Just to give you a bit of introduction...I'm 34 years old and my husband, Doc, and we have been TTC for 13 months. Not too long in the whole scheme of things, but considering my age, we don't feel like taking any chances and waiting.

We've been diagnosed with unexplained infertility and have gone through 1 round of clo.mid, and two rounds of fe.mara/let.rozole with IUI. With my last BFN in early February, we decided to take things to the next level and go the IVF route.

Right now, I'm on BCPs and will be starting the stims (men.opur and foll.istim) on Friday. My doctor has me on the antagonist protocol due to my age and my low-average antral follicle count. My retrieval and transfer are scheduled for early/mid-March. We're keeping our fingers crossed and hoping for the best!

Thank you for coming by to visit my blog!

We are the same age, and it appears we took the same approach...why mess around? My 1st IVF was so exciting! Finally doing something that felt tangible! After the shots started, it all seemed to fly by. Hope you find the same to be true.

Best of luck in your cycle!

Hi! Wishing you the best on your first IVF!

I saw in your previos post that you go to Tahoe often. I've never been there but my cousin and her husband live there and keep inviting us to visit. But I have never skiied a day in my life, which is odd bc I hail from the Northeast. But, that doesn't mean that we shouldn't visit them just bc we don't ski. I mean, there are other things to do there, right?

Happy ICLW!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! :) Looks like we won't be far behind you with our IVF. Mine should take place in the 3rd week of March if all goes well.

Wishing you tons of luck!!!
