I am a 31 year old *Former* Army wife and stay at home mom to our IVF miracles, London and Holden. Join us as we try to navigate life raising two CRAZY boys while learning to enjoy our triumph over infertility. You can not take away my struggle with infertility just because I have had success. We had plans to do a FET with one of our frozen embryos in a few years, but God had other plans. We are currently pregnant with surprise naturally conceived twins. It's going to be a wild ride!
Well it is that time of month again, and no I am not talking about AF. It's time for ICOMLEAVWE!! This is only my second month participating, but I had alot of fun last month so I think I might just become a "regular".
My name is Aly and I am an Army Wife and Stay at Home Mom...WAIT, don't leave yet. I know since I am secondary infertility it can be a put off to some people, but I was primary infertility at one point too. You see, London is the product of 2 years of TTC and finally an IVF/ICSI/AH cycle. Something some people find interesting is that I did IVF through the Army at Womack MTF. (I just wanted to put that out there in case any of you stopping by are military, and don't know about this program. Email me if you want details.) I did IVF in June 08 so if you want to read all about my cycle, you can do so HERE (start at the bottom). If you want our complete infertility journey you can click HERE. If you are already bored with my ramblings you might want to leave NOW because I tend to do this alot. :) (and and yes, I use smilies too.)
Currently, we are TTC number 2. We are still in the early stages of trying, but are really hoping not to have to go back through IVF. It's a long shot, but there is always hope. Last month we did our very first round of infertility drugs since we started TTC #2. It was Gonal F and an HCG trigger. I had 3 mature follicles, but apparently none of them "took" because I ended up with an ugly BFN and a very rude AF. We are taking this month off (of the meds at least) because we are MOVING!! RE visits every other day this month would just be too much to take on in the middle of a move.
Take a look around, and make yourself at home. Thanks for stopping by my little world.
