Welcome ICLW'ers!!

Hello All!!

This is my first time participating in ICLW and so far it's been great!! I've found a ton of new blogs to follow and I've gained 3 followers so far YAY!! I hope I don't disappoint!

I also love the fact that I've gotten some great responses to the "To Shave, Or Not To Shave, That Is The Question" post, so please keep them coming!! We need to have a little fun while having to go through all this, don't we?!?  On that topic though, I do agree with the waxing, it hurts like b**ch but it lasts way longer.

I just want to send out a BIG thanks for all the support you all have shown me so far wither its for IF stuff or the stuff I'm going through with my dad and his newly diagnosis of unknown primary liver cancer. It's been great to be able to escape here and to chat with people who have gone though similar stuff, though I wouldn't wish it upon anyone, it has been great.

To read more about what I've gone through as far as IF goes you can check out my first post Here or...

In short, I'm a 34 your old with stage 4 endometriosis diagnosed at age 30. Started ART approx a year and a half ago. Check out "Our TTC Journey... So Far" to get a more summarized detail on the cycles we've done so far.

I've tried Acupuncture and taken tons of vitamins and still nothing to show for it. Next steps, G (my hubby) and I have chosen to seek out DE at Oregon Reproduction Medicine with Dr Hesla. FX that this step brings us to our dream of baby.

Happy ICLW Week!!

    Dear Hopeful1, you've been through so much - and you have so much to contend with. Take time to soothe yourself and calm your spirit so that you can continue to take care of others.

    All the best.

  4. Returning a comment for ICLW. This is my first month too! I'm originally from Oregon, so it was great to see the state mentioned in your blog.

    I'm thinking positive thoughts for you and your dad.
