In Anticipation of...

Welcome and thank you for visiting! Since tomorrow is the first day of the IComLeavWe, I have noticed that a lot of blogger give a little intro on the first day, so I am getting a jump start on mine!

My husband and I have been TTC since January 2009. I already knew that I had endometriosis and ovarian cysts plus I had been on BCP for ten years, so we knew we were in for a wait to actually get pregnant. After a year, I started to get a little anxious and talked to my (then very crappy) PCP and she told us that due to my prior BC use and Endo, hoping to get KU after a year was optimistic. I believed her because I didn't want to be broken and need help to do what women are made to do: Make Tiny Humans. 

After two years, we changed insurance companies and changed doctors. My new PCP taught me all about temping and CM and wanted me to give it a shot for a month or two and then come back and see him to get a referral to an RE. Life got in the way (LOTS of crazy drama with my DH’s family) and long story short, we didn’t actually get that referral until 2013. Once we went to an RE we found out DH was great and I had a confirmed DX for PCOS and endometriosis. We have been trying with medication and first TI then moved on to IUI’s since July 2013. I had a CP in December on a natural cycle and am now in my TWW (8dpiui) from IUI#2. I take Femara and Pregnyl for trigger and boosters for LP support.


While I fail at making tiny humans, I am great at a lot of other things! DH and I live on a 24 acre horse and goat ranch in the Foothills of the Sierra Nevada’s in Northern California. We have a ton of dogs, cats and chickens in addition to our goats and horses and we own our own wholesale decorative glass business and work from home. We are expecting at least two baby goats in about a month and will have a litter of puppies this summer (at least something around here can get knocked up)!

    1. That is awesome! We have two business in one, one is smoke shop accessories and for the other we do hand blown glass; ornaments, jewelry (glass pendants and crosses), beads, bells, wind chimes, vases, wine glass, coffee stirrers and on and on! My DH is an amazing glass blower, I'm so-so. I generally just do jewelry, he does everything else!
