ICLW Welcome!

For those of you visiting for the first time, welcome to my little corner of the world!! Here is a basic overview of my infertility journey:

Married 11 years
Diagnosed with low sperm count after 1 year ttc
Went the adoption route
2 failed adoption later returned to ttc
Diagnosed with azoospermia, endometriosis, PCOS, and blocked tube....we got it all!!!!
4 rounds DIUI....all negative
This past July began the embryo adoption/donation route
A match has been made and transfer scheduled next month

That about sums it all up! Infertility is doing its darnedest to make me cray, but I am still hanging on........though barely! My blog chronicles the embryo adoption/donation journey as well as the day to day struggles that we all go through. Infertility is a merciless enemy, but I believe that if we all band together we can get through it! I look forward to getting to know all of you!


  1. I loved ICLW last time, it was my first time and I met so many great people! These blogs are what keep me 1/4 sane. :)

  2. Hi! I bumped across your blog and wanted to say hello. My husband and I are on the lovely infertility journey, as well. I'm interested in embryo donation - would you mind emailing me the name of your clinic?
    Best wishes to you!

  3. It's very nice to meet you too! That must have been tough to go through the failed adoptions, but I'm glad that you've got something to look forward to with the embryo adoption!

  4. You know me :) We're on the same path as you :) CANNOT believe my sweet ones will be home tomorrow! Can't wait til we are PREGGERS together :)

  5. I am hoping and praying that this cycle is the miracle you have been waiting for.


  6. Thanks for stopping in and leaving a comment on my blog! I hate hearing that you've had a hard road up until this point, but I really hope that the embryo donation will be your key to your LO!

  7. Wow, embryo adoption! That is something my DH and I have begun discussing as an option quite recently. I am really excited for you that you have found a match! I will be following along on your journey. Much luck to you guys.


  8. Wow, you guys really do have it all (the diagnoses). I hope that the road you're on will bring your baby(ies) home to you!



I love comments! They make me feel important.
