June ICLW!

June 21st already!? Happy first official day of summer! This is the first time I have participated in ICLW. I'm a newb!

So, for those of you that are new around these parts - welcome!! A lot of my history is included in the sidebar on the right. To sum it all up, my husband and I have been working at TTC since September 2008. October of 2009 we sought out medical help. I learned then that J has perfectly performing swimmers and I have PCOS. After three cycles of failed Clomid, we started Femara. May was the first time I was confirmed to have ovulated. Timed sex and BFN. This will be our fourth Femara cycle and our first cycle of IUI if today's appointment shows I have good follicle development.

In the past two years I have lost almost 50lbs and I am working on losing about another 30 in hopes that it will help with my PCOS. I've been eating much healthier, but I've been a slacker with the exercise, so I've got to get with it!

It has been a long and bumpy road so far and I'm sure there is more bumpy road ahead of us. One thing IF has given me is relationships with incredible women through blogging and the internet. I hope to 'meet' even more cool ladies through Stirrup Queens and ICLW.


  1. Hi there-
    Stopping by through ICLW. I hope that todays appointment goes well and that you have a few big follies ready to go!

  2. Good Luck at your appointment! I will keep my fingers crossed for big plump follies!

  3. Hi!

    Good luck with your appointment today! I hope this cycle results in your BFP, you definitely deserve it! Fingers crossed for you!


  4. Good luck at your appointment and I hope that you have a great follie or 2!!!!!


  5. Thanks for stopping by! Nice to "meet" you. Congrats on losing 50 lbs. That is awesome. Good luck with your IUI (you may have had it by now). They are super easy, although I wouldn't call them fun. ha! My Dr. told me they increase your chances of conceiving to a higher rate than that of your regular fertile 25 year old. I'll take that any day!!!

  6. Welcome to ICLW! This is only my second time, but it's an awesome way to find people that are going through a lot of things similar to what you are going through! I have found some really amazing stories on here. Good luck to you!

  7. Congrats on the 50lbs! That's wonderful! You'll have to blog about how you did that. I'm having the hardest time. Best of luck to you in getting your BFP!!


  8. Good luck on your upcoming IUI!

    Happy ICLW!
