August... really? Wow, this summer flew by! Happy ICLW to new and old readers. My name is Liz and I just turned 28 a few weeks ago. We have been TTC for 15 months but seeing a RE just about the whole time. Our journey started with a diagnosis of PCOS and a huge cyst on my left fallopian tube that I ended up getting 2 laparopscopic surgeries for. The first time we drained it but then it returned a few months later and I ended up losing my left tube with the second surgery.
In January I became pregnant but that pregnancy ended in a miscarriage at 8 weeks (only measured 6 weeks). After that we tried 2 IUI's but were unsuccessful so moved on to IVF. I did my first IVF cycle in July and wasn't able to transfer the embryos due to fluid in my uterus the day of transfer. We froze the 5 embryos on day 3 and tried a FET in August. A few days before the scheduled transfer we again saw fluid. Most recently I had an endometrial biopsy to try to determine the cause of the fluid. I haven't gotten the complete results yet but it appears like it will involve more complications and delays.
Outside of IF treatments I work with young children and love my job. My hubby graduated in May and we recently became a DINK family (dual income, no kids). We have 3 fantastic fur babies that keep us occupied and entertained.
I like to ask readers questions for ICLW and also answer them, so here goes:
When you have 30 minutes of free-time, how do you pass the time?
On my phone or computer cruising the internet.
What did you do growing up that got you into a lot of trouble?
Everything and anything. The biggest ones? Sneaking out of the house and being a smart ass.
Have you ever had something happen to you that you thought was bad but turned out to be for the best? This didn't happen to me personally but my hubby tore his ACL skiing. He loved physical therapy so much he chose it as a career path. You never know when a big mistake will turn out to be a blessing in disguise.
What is your first memory of being really excited?
I remember getting a new bike for Christmas when I was about 5 and then riding it into the lake we lived on.
