Hello and welcome to my blog. I decided to do ICLW again this month. It has been a while, but I am looking forward to it. 

My name is Liz and I am 28. My husband is W and he is 30. We have been TTC baby #1 for about 2 years and seeing a RE almost the entire time. I got a referral quickly by going to my GYN for a pre-conception check up. At that time I requested blood work since some of my cycles had been a bit longer. My testosterone was high and I quickly received the diagnosis of PCOS and the suggestion to see an endocrinologist. In addition, I lost my left tube to a paratubal cyst last March. 

 I have done 2 IUI cycles (both BFN), 3 IVF cycles (1 BFN, 2 chemical pregnancies) and 1 FET (BFN). Once I get AF again we will do our second FET with frozen embryos from IVF #3. If you want to find out more you can check out the other pages on the top of my blog. 

I am a speech pathologist and work with children from birth to age 5. I love my job, challenging as it is. The children say some of the funniest things, and it always keeps me on my toes. Today I arrived at a house and their two boys were in the pool swimming. I see the younger brother for therapy and the other brother loves to join in most days. Today he decided he was going to stay in the pool instead. After our session was over we headed back outside. I guess at that point the older brother decided he wanted to come inside. He took one look at us and said, "I missed all the fun?" As if swimming in the pool isn't more fun. 

I like to ask other people questions for ICLW so here goes:

What is your favorite color?
Mine is green

What would I find in your refrigerator right now?
We have a ton of prepped food for our BBQ we are having tomorrow. Coleslaw, potato salad, chicken, beer, wine, and some hot dogs. 

What is the last book you read/the last movie you saw in the theatre?
I read the Hunger Games and am currently embarrassed to admit I am reading Fifty Shades. The last movie we saw was the 5 Year Engagement

If you were on death row, what would your last meal be?
Lobster, corn on the cob, and salt potatoes 


  1. . Best wishes with your transfer! You guys have really been through it.

  2. Blue.
    The makings of a yummy Greek salad for my lunch and my favorite grape juice.
    The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and Titanic 3D (which I wished was not 3D, I just don't get it, it ruins my suspension of disbelief, although Leo was still worth it)

  3. Green.
    Beer. Jello. Grapes. Pickles.
    Hunger Games. 21 Jump Street.
    Pei Wei Pad Thai w/ Chicken.

    Looking forward to hearing about your next FET!! FX

  4. Purple

    Sheesh, two fridges, what don't we have? lol

    I have been on a SciFi short story binge, so the one I am reading right now is Ursula LeGuin's, Four Ways to Forgiveness.

    My husband and I have been watching the Olympic trials in between naps today.

    I can't think about food. Being in pain means I never think about it until my husband brings something and tells me to eat.

    I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was 22. This week I turned 36. The combo of PCOS and early trimester miscarriageswere the focus of my life, even after my younger kids were born. My youngest is now three, and we keep going back and forth about our feeling that there might just be one more out there. Until the other health stuff is dealt with, I don't have to think too hard about it, but occasionally I dream/nightmare about Chlomid.

  5. I'm so sorry that I'm so far behind on commenting... I joined up ICLW then completely missed it :( Thinking of you for your upcoming FET cycle... maybe we'll be doing our FETs around the same time :)) xoxo

  6. Hi from ICLW! I'm a speech therapist as well (communicative disorders, not a speech path). I won't answer all of your questions, haha, but my refrigerator is stocked with every kind of condiment imaginable, a ton of fruit and veggies, and a 2L carton of almond milk. That's about it, I'm afraid.
