My life in a nutshell

Posted in Infertility, Life tagged at 9:12 am by lifebytheday

I’m doing ICLW again (International Comment Leaving Week, for those of you not in the IF community 😉 ), in the hopes of meeting some new bloggy friends.  So, for those of you visiting for the first time, I thought I’d give you a quick snapshot of me and what’s been going on over the past several years.

I am 28, and have been married to my soul mate (my Irish leprechaun) for six years.  We live in a western suburb of Boston with our dog and cat furbabies – we bought a house and moved back to my hometown about two and a half years ago.  We love living life, but we’ve definitely had our fair share of challenges.

I was diagnosed with a severe case of PCOS (without the weight gain or hair ;-)) and we have been trying to have a baby for more than four years.  We’ve been through four rounds of Clomid, and five rounds of IVF – and just got our miracle BFP on our fifth – and final – IVF cycle!  I am now seven weeks pregnant and trying to wrap my head around the fact that we might actually be having a baby in 7+ months.

I would love to meet some other pregnant bloggers (I still can’t believe that I’m part of that club!) and some other IF-treatment veterans.  I had a great support system, both IRL friends and bloggers, and I’d love to give back to the community if I can.  So drop me a note and say hello!

Happy Friday everybody! 🙂
