This is the first ICLW I'm participating in, and I'm really enjoying it so far. For far too long I've felt so alone in my journey, as friend after friend gets married and starts having kids about 2 months after starting to try and I continue to also try and wait and nothing happens.

I hope it's not a misery loves company thing, because I don't want to be that kind of person, but it's awfully nice not feeling like the only person in the world this has happened to.

My story is pretty well laid out in the sidebar. Today is 8dp3dt in my first (and hopefully last?) IVF and I feel like shite and am hoping it's for a reason and not all in my head. 3 more days. I am more than willing to feel like shite for 9 months if only for this reason. Please.


  1. Tons of good vibes that this is IT for you! I hope that you will get great news in a few days!

  2. I know what you mean about feeling alone in this. It is almost "taboo" to talk about with our family. The people I can to about it are women online in support groups, or the 3 women I know who have IVF babies in real life. Otherwise, no one gets it. It really helps to know you aren't alone. I hope you get your much deserved BFP soon! Sending you lots of sticky babydust!

  3. Stopping in for ICLW...and praying that you get good news for this cycle!

  4. Enjoy ICLW, I really do!!! And good luck with your IVF, I hope its a BFP!!!

  5. Hello C,
