Happy ICLW!

After a couple months off from ICLW, I'm back in the swing of things!

Welcome to any new readers, and hi again to my ol' faithfuls.

Brief summary of my TTC situation: My husband (Buster) and I have been trying for 4 years. We've done 7 medicated cycles, and I've taken the following drugs (NOT simultaneously!): Clomid, Femara/Letrozole, Bravelle, Follistim, Menopur, Ovidrel, other hCG triggers and progesterone. That's not counting any OTC vitamins and such. We have done 4 medicated IUI cycles, all BFN. My last IUI was canceled due to me having 8 mature follicles. My (former) RE is a douche. I have been "diagnosed" with unexplained infertility, but after a phone consult with Dr. Sher, I am having several tests done and hope to find a reason for my struggles. I have never been pregnant. No miscarriages, no chemicals, no nothing. Especially no baby (unless you count my 9 month old Golden Retriever Kelsey!). We are now facing IVF, and this testing is basically a pre-cursor to that.

Ok, now that I got that out of the way...

I am seeing my first concert in probably 8 years tonight! I am soooo excited! Not only is it one of my favorite bands (possibly my favorite), but it's an old theater downtown Pittsburgh!

So yes, I am really, super excited. I went and used up the rest of gift card I had burning a hole in my wallet and got a cute outfit to wear. I want to stop and get a 6-pack on the way there and chug a couple beers in the car before we go in. Yes, I'm classy, I know!

That's all I have for today, so I will leave you with my favorite Decemberists song. My blog is titled after a line in this song. I reallllllllllly hope they play it tonight!! FX :)


  1. Hi! I'm found you through ICLW. :)
    Your new RE sounds amazing! I hope the testing goes well and yields some answers.
    Enjoy the concert!

  2. Have a great time tonight!! We called it car barring in college, enjoy that six pack!!

  3. Hi from ICLW! Hope you had a great time at the concert and good luck with your IF journey!

  4. Happy ICLW!

    I recently changed fertility specialists and it's the best decision I ever made! Just wish I had done it sooner! I hope your new doctor gets you that BFP!

    Best of luck with your journey. xx

  5. I LOVE your style, a six pack is exactly what you need on the way in. Thats when you build up the excitement and hype of the night! I hope you have the best time and let loose. This ttc stuff really takes its toll on us.

    I hope the new RE is a winner and you blog turns to talk of big boobies, complaints of not being able to see your knees and baby names. Cheers to you!
