ICLW February 2013

It's probably been literal years since I participated in ICLW, but here I am! Thanks for stopping by! As per the typical IF blogger format, my long and ongoing IF journey can be found on the right hand sidebar, but beyond that my previous year has been a bit challenging with the loss of my mother and our second miscarriage in October.

We have one beautiful three-year-old son via IVF/ICSI and are considering pursuing one last IVF to add to our family in the next few months, except we're well aware of the uphill battle it will be considering we face both MFI and borderline FSH. We have also strongly considered open domestic adoption and may pursue this once we feel we are 'done' with treatment and have somehow recouped our $$.

This space is where I moan and complain about the ridiculous costs of treatment and various other life circumstances. Welcome!

The cost of treatment is crazy high... it's so ridiculous!

Happy ICLW!

Welcome back to ICLW! I was looking at a few of your past posts and am impressed with your shopping around for clinics. Good luck with your decision. I never shopped around, but I can imagine that if you do, it can be a really touch decision!

Nice to "meet" you Shelby. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Yes, we are indeed nearby. I'm near Sacramento. I'd love to follow your blog but don't see a button. :(
