HAPPY AUGUST ICLW!

Welcome friends (both new and old).  Happy August ICLW week!  It's been awhile since I have done one of these so let me fill you in.....

I married my husband in July 2006 after dating long distance for 8 years.  We started trying to conceive in August 2006.  We were given two shots of Femara, which both failed and we were referred to an RE because of my PCOS.  However, fate had other plans as we learned that we did NOT have any type of insurance for fertility.  I gave up and became depressed. 

In 2007, we visited the top RE for PCOS in San Diego but were passed down to a new dr who had the personality of an turd...and I am not even joking.  Many issues with him and his green money seeing ways and we decided not to go back.  Deeper depression....

In Oct of 2008, we moved back east as my adorable husband was offered a better job....with a better job came better insurance....MUCH better.  It wasn't complete coverage but it was something.  We made our first appt with our RE here who we adore...DR. GODFATHER.  We started seeing him regularly last August!

After 6 IUI's (5 with clomid and one with injectibles) I am glad to say that I am now eight weeks pregnant.  This road has been a long one....full of ups and downs...highs and lows.  The greatest gift I have received through this infertility is my amazing relationship with my husband.  He is incredibly supportive...my strength.... my rock. 

As thrilled as we are for this pregnancy, we are incredibly aware and nervous of things that could go wrong.  We have had a couple of instances of spotting....one with a trip to the emergency room.  I take each day as a blessing...one foot in front of the other!  I waited a long time for this....

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoy reading my blog as much I enjoy writing it!  Feel free to poke around and follow me!
