Happy ICLW Friday!

Quick summary for those of you who may be stopping by for the first time:Buster (my husband) and I have been hoping to get pregnant for almost 4 years now. For the past 15 months or so, we've been really trying hard (reading, obsessing, peeing on things, IF treatments, etc). We have been "diagnosed" with unexplained infertility (nothing wrong with me that they can tell, Buster has super sperm). I am awaiting AF so I can officially say this past IUI cycle failed. I have done 3 rounds of Clomid, several months of Metformin (for no apparent reason, lol) and this past cycle was my first with Femara. I hope to convince (read: force) my RE to go the injectibles route for next cycle. So that's it, in a nutshell! Oh, it's probably worth mentioning that we are currently in a bad luck slump. I'm hoping we are at the tail-end of it, as we have gotten our fill.

This short week for me has lasted a year. With several BFNs early in the week, and several knock-down, drag-out fights with Buster later in the week, I am ready for a beer. Or ten. One failed IUI coupled with job loss and non-working vehicles makes for a shitty week!


Song of the day! "Evening on the Ground (Lilith's Song)" by Iron and Wine. Enjoy! :)


  1. I'm a new follower. Found you through blogfrog. Hubby and I are TTCers but only for a few months now. I find myself obsessed with everything related to pregnancy or getting pregnant. Glad to follow along and wishing you tons of luck with your treatments.

  2. Great summary. The way you wrote it sounds like one big breath.

  3. Sorry you've had such a lousy week! I hate those last few days before AF arrives...I always wish I could just fast forward through it. I hope that if things don't work out this cycle, you're able to get more aggressive.

    I love Iron and Wine :)

    Hope you're feeling better after the weekend!


  4. I have yet to mention to you that I love your songs of the day idea! Music can really move people in many ways. Wishing you better days ahead...

  5. Oh my dear, I sure hope your bad luck is G.O.N.E. It has overstayed its welcome for sure!! <3 you bunches, you tell Awful to give you what you want, or ELSE!!! :)
