Welcome to ICLW

This is my first time participating in International Comment Leaving Week. I have considered doing it before, but never make the deadline and then forget the next month. LOL

My blog is mainly about our infertility struggles, but I also blog a fair amount about other stuff going on in my life.

I've been married for almost three years. We've been ttc for almost two. We've been seeing an RE for ART for almost a year.

Five medicated cycles, four of them with IUI, and then one IVF so far. We are technically, "unexplained infertility", although our first IVF cycle revealed there is some sort of problem with fertilization. We are currently in the middle of an IVF cycle, in which they will be using IC.SI. A more detailed list of our ttc history is here.

When I'm not talking about ttc, I'm usually talking about my dogs. I have two rescue dogs who I adore. My first dog, B-dog, I got when I was single. She and I are BFFs. Sadly, she has lymphoma and we will likely have to have her put to sleep by the fall. When that happens, I don't know how I will bear it. M-dog is my cuddler, and I'm counting on him to help me get through it!

So that's the important stuff in a nutshell. Welcome to new readers! Hi to regulars!

Best of luck in your IVF and welcome to your first round of ICLW. Dogs are the best support - I don't know what I'd do without my big beast of a boxer!

So sorry about your dog! My dog Linus is my baby and I don't know what I would do without him!
