Welcome ICLW!

Welcome ICLW!!

My name is Aly. I am 29 years old and SAHM to our IVF miracle, London. 
Welcome to my little slice of the interwebz. 

This is me:

This is the hubs 
(AKA: Mike)

And this is the little man who stole our hearts
 (AKA: London).

Now a little bit about us. 

After 2 years of infertility treatments (due to unexplained IF) we were finally able to get pregnant with London after our very first IVF cycle.  He was born in February 2009 but I officially have baby fever again. My husband was an Army Captain before getting out and starting a job in the civilian world just a few weeks ago. It has been quite the transition but we are slowly getting used to things on "the outside". The good news is that his new company offers infertility coverage including IVF. So we really lucked out in that department. We have decided to do IVF #2 in January but the wait is all but killing me. 

Feel free to look around and make yourself at home. Here is our complete Infertility Journey starting back in 2006 if you would like to read all about it.  I love comments so don't be shy!
Prop up your feet become a follower and stay a while. 

Thanks for stopping by, I look forward to getting to know you (and your blog).

Waiting sucks, but I can't wait to see your next little miracle!

I hope you enjoy being on "the outside". What a stroke of luck that you get IVF coverage just when you are getting baby hungry again!

One thing I love about ICLW is everyone's "welcome posts"...which I sadly do not do anymore. LOL.

I totally understand how you feel. We are attempting to have baby #2 after having success with our first IVF. My son was born only one month after yours! I wish you the best of luck.
