Happy ICLW!

I'm just going to go ahead and lie
 here until someone casts heal
Just wanted to post a quick hello to everyone here from September's ICLW.

Here are two good posts to get any new reader's up-to-date:

Our IF diagnosis(es...essssss... oh god there are so many diagnoses...)

7 (ish?) IUI's and 0.7(???) IVF attempts later, we tapped out:

What started here as a place to talk about treatment, is right now becoming a place to talk about not being in treatment anymore. While adoption is on the table for us, we are pretty beat up at this point. The plan right now is to head back to the inn to sleep the last fight off, then we might go grind a few levels to max out our HP, do a fedex quest or two, then get out there for the next round. Yea... video games...  


  1. Hi from ICLW - wishing you all the best whatever you decide to do next!

  2. Hi from you've really had quite the journey!! I wish you the very best and I will say a prayer for you.

  3. Wow, that is a long road that you have been on. Hope you rest in this break and find the wisdom you need to make the decisions for the future. I really hope it works out for you.

  4. Hi from ICLW...I have not gone through all that brutal fertility treatment stuff like you...but I do know what it's like to be in that insanely difficult time between stopping TTC and starting adoption - the grief of knowing you'll never have a baby that looks like you & your spouse, yet there's relief; a weight off your shoulders.

    1. you nailed it Rhonda, it's a mix of grief and relief - it's difficult to deal with the conflicting emotions sometimes.

  5. Happy ICLW to you too!
    I hope you and your hubby will take some time to heal and figure out what your next step(s) will be. Infertility it definitely rough on the body and mind, not to mention relationship.

    I love the gaming references. Hehe

  6. Hi from ICLW...IF is def a hard road
