After reading about IComLeavWe (ICLW) on some of the blogs I follow, I decided to investigate what it is all about and how I could get in on the action. So I have signed up for this month and am really enjoying finding some new blogs to read and sharing in some more journeys similar to my own.

Sooooo...hello to all those that are stopping by as part of ICLW February 2011 and thanks for stopping by! If you decide to follow my blog, please let me know so I can follow yours. And if you have been lurking but not commenting-now is your chance to say hello and introduce yourself!!

Our detailed TTC journey is off on the right hand side of the blog....but here is a quick summary if you are short on time!

DH and I met at the end of 2002 and were engaged in March 2005.
We married on the 14th April 2007.
We have been actively TTC since August 2009.
I was diagnosed with PCOS in June 2010.
We completed 4 cycles on Letrozole & Metformin from June-September 2010.
In December 2010 we undertook our first cycle of IVF. All went perfectly and we were left with 6 embies to freeze.
3 days before Christmas we were given the news that I was pregnant, but sadly just before I reached 8 weeks I miscarried in January 2011.

So that brings us to now. I have just had my first period post miscarriage and was told by my current specialist that he wants me to wait 2 cycles before we commence FET. DH and I are currently waiting to see a new fertility specialist (who has a 2 month wait list) as we were concerned with some of our current doctors actions once I was told I was pregnant and with the handling of my miscarriage. We have an appointment on the 25th of March. Only a month more to wait...not sure what this will hold for us and when we will get the chance to try a FET cycle so it's limbo land for us for now.

Happy ICLW! I am rooting for you that your FET works and gives you your sticky baby(ies)! Also, good luck with the new RE - I hope that he/she is great and that you feel comfortable with him/her.

Hi from ICLW! I clicked on your blog because you are right below mine on the blog list! I'm also interested in anyone who's done an IVF cycle as we are currently doing one. I wish you lots of luck with your FET and will be following along for sure!

Hello! I found your blog through ICLW and am now following your journey! I'm wishing you LOTS of luck with your upcoming FET! I too am getting ready for an FET (in March.) We had our first IVF cycle in January and unfortunately were not able to transfer our embryos due to OHSS. Sounds like we might be having our FET's around the same time! Very exciting!
So terribly sorry to read about your miscarriage....

Welcome to ICLW! This is the one 'time of the month' that I love.

Our anniversaries are the same... exact day and year. Very cool!

I am truly sorry for your your loss.

You've really been through the ringer the past couple of years. I hope things get better for you soon.

You asked for comments we've gotten? The best was from my own (step) sister: "God will give you a baby when He's ready for you to have one." This was said to me the day after emergency surgery for a ruptured ectopic aka loss #3. Brilliant, right?

Best wishes to you for your upcoming appointment with the new specialist.

Happy ICLW, and thanks so much for visiting and commenting on my blog! Glad you decided to join up ICLW this month....it's a LOT of fun with lots of fun things to read and learn about other people. I'm so sorry to hear of your miscarriage. :( Looks like you and I could be cycling buddies with our FETs! Hoping we both get BFPs and carry through all 40 weeks! :D

I'm so sorry about your miscarriage. Please take good care of yourself.

Your list is spot on - I think you should print this on T-shirts and we should all wear them to shut everyone else up.

Best wishes!
