September ICLW

Today starts ICLW - International Comment Leaving Week! I just wanted to welcome those of you coming over for ICLW. Here is my standard "Hi, I'm Tkeys and I'm infertile" intro.

I have PCOS and fibroids, and DH has MFI. In December 2008, after several rounds of Clomid, IUI with injectibles, and finally IVF w/ ICSI, I gave birth to our first son, Micah! For a more detailed description of our TTC journey, click here. DH & I are in our second month of TTC #2. We are starting by TTC naturally again (with the help of the CBEFM and Instead cups). Yes, I'm aware that this is likely a futile effort. Our current plan is to return to fertility treatments in December or January. We will probably start out with another 2 or 3 rounds of IUI w/ injectibles (why not) before going for another round of IVF next August.

Although my goal is to try to keep my cool during this time of TTC "naturally," I failed miserably last month and got a case of the crazies. My cycle was much shorter than I expected and I started spotting at 5dpo (which contributed to the crazies), but this month I am really going to try not to let the crazy things going on in my cycle rattle me, or worse yet, give me hope. If this month is just as crazy, I may go back on bcps until we are ready to undergo fertility treatments.

Miracles happen, why not to you? That's what makes me a little nuts too every month even though we now know it won't happen "naturally".
Congrats on a beautiful boy and good luck with #2 :-)
