Good Morning, Blog Land!!!

Well, I'm finally taking the plunge and creating my own blog. I've been lurking on several blogs of my infertile sisters, been writing my little musings in journals for over 20 years, and I'm now entering the digital age. I guess I always liked the handwritten page, but it will be very nice to share my musings with friends (not sure about family) and my fellow bloggers.

I'm sure I'll need to put together an about me section, but I'll introduce myself for now. I'm a soon to be 34 year old woman with a husband, one daughter who is 4 years old, and a 7 month old Golden Lab puppy, as the second child is not about to come along anytime soon.

We suffer from sort of secondary infertility. I say sort of, because this is the time that it seems to have us beat. My daughter is a product of ovulation induction and IUIs (husband's no problem there!), after laporascopy to repair my endometriosis-ridden body. We immediately tried for DK2 on our own, but after her second birthday went back to the same doctor. One more laporascopy (sp?), 7 IUI cycles, 1 miscarriage, 2 IVFs, 1 integrin test later, no baby. After two years of treatments and strain on our marriage, we decided together to give it up and get a dog. I'm taking herbal treatments to regulate my cycle (short luteal phase), to keep things to 28 days so I can predict when I'll be getting it (makes the sex life better too!). We've been very happy in our second honeymoon phase, getting to know what we like for fun in bed again instead of having everything be so much work.

Well, I have to go. The elliptical machine is calling me. I also have to find out how much snow we're supposed to get tonight, so I can figure out if I'm going to work tomorrow.
