Sunday, 21 April 2013


This week I am trying something new. As a matter of fact, it seems that April 2013 is going to be a month chock-a-block full of new experiences for me. I wrote my very first blog post, had my first frozen embryo transfer (it failed), will have my first WTF appointment on Tuesday and now, for the first time ever, I am participating in IComLeavWe. haven't heard of IComLeavWe, hey? Well, it works like this - I think: it is one week a month where bloggers can go round the web, read other people's blogs and, if they like what they see, leave a comment.

In the spirit of embracing my infertility, instead of letting it slowly eat me up from the inside, I am also trying to embrace blogging and join, as a fully participating member, the blogging community. So, if you are just stopping in from ICLW, welcome to my blog. Please make yourself comfortable, look around and enjoy. And, just so you know where on earth you are, I have written a little about my journey below:

On Tuesday, my husband and I will have an appointment with our fertility specialist to discuss why, even though my lining was perfect and we had two exceptional embryos, the frozen tranfer failed. They call it a why-the-fail appointment but my heart tells me that those three letters should really stand for something else. We are hopeful - we are always hopeful, that is, until reality slaps us round the face once again - and we are looking forward to being told that we can get on the IVF merry-go-round for one more go. I never thought that I would want to hear the words "yes, let's do another IVF cycle" quite so much as I do today. And, it has never before occured to me that I would dread hearing, "no, not yet, we just want to do a few more tests first". Please, oh, please doctor, no more tests.

So, in a very brief nutshell, that's where I'm at. I hope a few of you stop by and leave a comment and tell me where you're at too.

Oh, by the way, if you are not on the ICLW train and have just stumbled past, feel free to say "hi" as well.

Right, I'm off to find some blogs to comment on......
