ICLW March 2011

Happy ICLW!!! If this is your first time stumbling upon my little place in web space, welcome! I'm a 30 year old NICU nurse, and mom to a 4-year-old piece of work! DH is 34. We suffer from MFI, endometriosis, and hydrosalpinx (removed in Nov). Our little boy was the most awesome result of our first cycle. Briefly after IVF #2 we explored adoption (and were getting ready to do our homestudy) until our insurance changed and we were given the gift of another IVF cycle covered by them. If you checked us out last month then you might remember that we were in the middle of IVF #3. The update on that is that we had a BFN (Big Fat Negative) on 3/11. We believe we have enough left in our savings and insurance cap combined to do a FET (frozen embryo transfer) this year. We are moving right into that, and I'm currently on birth control pills to get me ready for this. By next ICLW, I should have had my transfer!

For a little overview of our blog and where to look if you want to know about something specifically, we started the blog with the adoption adventure back in May 2009. Insurance changed July 2010, hydrosalpinx issues and info start around October 2010, and IVF consults start about the same time. I hope some of you will stick around and follow us on our journey to complete our family. :)


  1. Hello! It looks like we will be having FET's pretty close together! Best of luck with this cycle!!! Also Your little boy is gorgeous.

    ICLW #143

  2. Stopping over from ICLW from #63 & #153. Best wishes with your next cycle!

  3. Hi Jen- Thanks for stopping by my blog! Just wanted to wish you lots of luck with your upcoming FET! I hope it brings you all your heart desires! :-)

  4. I wish you tons of luck as you approach your FET. Happy ICLW!

  5. Good luck with your FET. We just had our transfer for our first IVF and it is such an exciting time. I love stumbling across others going through the same process (even though I HATE that anyone has to go through IVF). Make sense? :D
