Sorry the blog has been slow! It will be kinda slow until mid/late December when we start the estrogen priming portion of IVF #3 take 2. Anyways, I took my last letrozole pill yesterday. Of course I'm praying for a miracle. One miraculous super sperm from Mike to find it's way all the way to an egg next week! I know it's a hail Mary but why not at least try right? The drug was only a $10 copay! So today is cycle day 8. Typically I ovulate around cycle day 16/17 but I guess on letrozole it's pretty much going to force it to happen around day 13/14 which will be next Sunday/Monday. We'll do the deed and sit and wait for 12-14 days to take a test. No way I'm testing early this time. I say that now, but I am an addict. Out of my 100 internet cheapies I am down to only 7 or 8 though so I can't waste them!

- After an 8 year battle with infertility and countless struggles, our family is finally complete. This blog chronicles the journey it took for us to start and build the family we always wanted. Background on the blog (started in 2012, just days before I found out the embryo transfer for our son worked).... I decided to start a blog after realizing I have only been able to make it through my TWW's (two week waits) with the help of Google and with the openness of other women suffering from infertility sharing their own stories and giving others hope. I have time and time again found my exact symptoms on other women's blogs and felt an overwhelming sense of calmness they provided me. I thought it was time to pay it forward and hopefully provide this same thing to other women on their own journeys.
