Welcome ICLW June 2011!

If you haven't been here before, welcome. On the ICLW website, I'm listed as doing a FET this month. I actually did the FET last month and found out it failed a few weeks ago. Since I'm apparently a glutton for punishment, I'm doing another fresh IVF cycle this month. Again, welcome. I look forward to reading your blogs, too.

FET #1, failed

  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'll look forward to following your story as well. Surrogacy in India is a very unique path that I began researching by following others' blogs. In coming into contact with what has now become my India surro-online family, it seems everyone else started out the same way. If you ever have any questions please feel free to email me. Best, Bernadette

  2. Hello, I'm an English girl living in South America and picked up your blog from fellow expat bloggers. I wish you all the best for this cycle. Love the title and the photo too :)

  3. So sorry about the BFN on your FET. I hope the current IVF cycle will bring you that much-awaited baby.

    Good Luck!

  10. Hi there! I'm also a mama of a baby girl and we're thinking of jumping back into the world of TTC soon ourselves. I'm so sorry to hear that your latest attempt didn't work but I'll be thinking of you as you go through your next IVF. Good luck to you!

  12. I'm not sure what this ILCW thing is -- Googled and couldn't find it. I'm too chicken to blog about my IF journey away -- I just spend my time on anonymous message boards! I'm on IVF #3 as well (have a 2 year old from a FET the last time around) -- and am 2 days into the 2WW with two embryos transferred.

  13. Hi there! I'm here through ICLW. I am so sorry your most recent FET didn't work out. Good luck on this IVF cycle!

  14. Good luck with this cycle! We are actually doing our last FET from the embryos left over from our successful IVF that gave us our son Henry in 2009. We find out our results tomorrow!

    I will be keeping my fingers crossed for us both :)
