Ahh, another round of ICLW! Nice to start off the year with this. Welcome to my blog. If you'd like to learn more about how I got here, you can click on the About Me tab at the top of this page. It's long though, so for a short version, here goes:
Been married nearly 5 years, we're now in our 4th year of trying. We have unexplained infertility and recurrent miscarriage. 4 times I've been pregnant (twice on our own, twice with fertility treatments) and I've never made it out of the first trimester. My last pregnancy was with twins from our second IVF cycle. One passed at 7 weeks, the other at 11 weeks. It's been a tough, tough road.
We're now far into the adoption process: homestudy ready and right now in the middle of getting profiled. We're so hopeful something will happen with that this year, because it's been such a long road. We're also pursuing surrogacy, thanks to the generosity of my inlaws. Basically we want a baby/babies - any way it happens for us. Someone wants to drop one off on my doorstep? We'd be thrilled :)
Anyway, I'm not the greatest writer, this blog is more pretty much Word Vomit Thursday, every day I write. I write to release my feelings, so more often its been depression, sadness, and anger. Whatever comes into my mind I write, because getting it out feels better than keeping it in. Welcome!
