Happy ICLW!

This is my first month participating in ICLW (International Comment Leaving Week, or IComLeavWe if you’re nasty.), and so far it has been an eye-opening experience.

First of all, I literally had no idea that so many infertility blogs existed.  It makes me sad and angry and warm and fuzzy all at the same time.

And second, I am learning so much about the different paths available to women with fertility issues.  By the time my appointment with the RE rolls around in June, I should be the most educated patient they’ve ever had.

Doctors love that.  Right?

So, if you’re visiting me for the first time–Welcome!  And thank you for stopping by!  I hope you find something you like that brings you back again soon.

If this isn’t your first visit, then you know the drill:  TMI, snark, over-punctuation, and too many ellipses…

Happy Commenting!  🙂

    You had me at “if you’re nasty” … and then totally became my BFF at “over punctuation, and too many ellipses”.

    I am new to infertility blogs too. I got pregnant in college (I was one of THOSE people who got pregnant without even trying which given that I have PCOS is kind of a miracle in and of itself…maybe I should try the tactics I used then…but I have no idea how to make a single serving of jungle juice). She’s 11 now…(which means I’m 33, I think) and desperate for a sibling. I look forward to reading your blog!!!

    Welcome to ICLW! It’s a great way to open your eyes. But I find that if you are in the midst of an exciting time in ICLW, then you will get more hits. Just my experience, which is shit as in currently on a break till May!! I hope your ttc journey ends really really soon! Cheers!!

    thanks for comment on my blog! not sure if my story really inspires or scares those gearing up to tackle the RE’s office and possible treatments, but if you somehow found it inspiring, then thanks! just know that while it appears i’ve held it together, i’m a master crier and breakdowner! looking forward to following your own adventure!

    yay for taking the plunge into ICLW, I have met some of the most amazing, supporting women through this week and thanks to them I’ve no doubt pissed my doctor off royally on more than one occasion 😉

    So much of this IF game is waiting, I hope the wait for June goes nice and quick for you and the RE has some answers for the multitude of questions you’re going to have after this week 😀

    I look forward to seeing how you get on.

    As soon as I saw “snarkiness” in your ICLW description, I knew I would be following your blog! My assistant manager give me a hard time about saying snarky. He claims I made the word up! I wish!

    Welcome to ICLW!

    Oh snark, how I love the word. The first time I heard the word “snarky”, was out of the mouth of Mrs. Foreman on “That 70s Show”!

    Now SHE was a snarky little lady herself. Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you stick around! 🙂

    It’s my first ICLW too and I am also waiting for my first RE appointment in June. Coincidences abound! I also enjoy/employ snarkiness, so I’m going to keep reading!
