The inner thoughts of a stay-at-home mom who hopes talking to the computer will be at least a little more rewarding than chatting with a stuffed elephant.

Boogity Boogity Boo. Poof!
That's the magic spell M invented this morning. It summons dragons, which then dance with her. I tell ya, as crabby as I've been lately, she can still manage to crack me up and/or charm me on a regular basis.
This didn't start out as an infertility blog. I had my daughter, M, in 2005. Totally easy conception and pregnancy. We started trying for another child in August 2006, figuring we'd have no problems. And here's what happened:
10/06 -- BFP!
12/06 -- First ultrasound -- Twins! Unfortunately, one was already dead.
1/07 -- Other twin dead, D&C.
4/07 -- BFP!
6/07 -- Horrible cramps, ER visit, laparoscopic surgery to remove ectopic pregnancy and left fallopian tube.
10/07 -- Clomid cycle (just in case), BFN.
12/07 -- Enough of this trying crap. Bring on the IVF!
1/08 -- Add "poor ovarian reserve" to the mix!
2/08 -- Oh, and also, probable poor responder. Whoopie!
3/08 -- First IVF. Successful in every way except for actually getting me pregnant (plenty of eggs, plenty of blasts, but BFN).
5/08 -- FET cycle. Positive!
If all goes well, we'll be having a baby in February 2009.
