ICLW

Whew! I barely made it in under the deadline this month! Since I am recovering from surgery, I figured that this would be a great week to participate in ICLW. Yay!

Our IF journey is approaching 2 years in August. We have gone through 3 cycles of Clomid, 3 Clomid IUI's, a couple of cancelled IUI's, and most recently, a laparoscopy and hysteroscopy. On the laparoscopy, 3 fibroids were removed and some mild endometriosis was removed as well. There was also a large cyst on my ovary that was removed. Roto-rooter of the reproductive organs, I say!!

Anyway, we are hoping that in some way, the surgery helped. We will have a followup visit with the RE in about a week to talk about the surgery and the next step. We're planning on doing IUI with injectibles, but will likely move on to IVF rather quickly as we're paying for all of this out of pocket.

So, that's the egg in a (nut)shell!

Hopefully the roto-rootering of your reproductive system will be the magic bullet you need.

Seems that 'tis the season for roto-rooter work on the lady parts... I'm going for my hysteroscopy tomorrow and another bloggie friend had hers last week. Glad you're recovering well, and your hubbie is incredibly sweet!

Thanks for the comment on my blog about Orangette. I have checked it out before, but it seems like she is on hiatus for now. I'll keep checking though, she had lovely pictures.

And here's to a speedy recovery for you! I hope the cleaning of the insides will be the ticket you need to get your BFP!

I'm sorry you've had to go through this journey as well... Sounds like we've had very similar things done, so I feel your pain. Good luck with the RE and I hope this year brings you your much deserved BFP!!!

I had laparascopy last month for endometriosis, so I can empathize with your recovery. I go for my post-op tomorrow. I'm also keeping my fingers crossed that the surgery helped. I look forward to reading about your post-op/next steps!

Just wanted to say hi! I've dropped by from a sea of clicking on blogs! Yours is cute, btw. :)
I had a lap last Monday. It, too, was my first surgery ever and I was scared to death! I'm so glad it's over!
I went in to unblock my tubes and the doc discovered I have stage IV endo...I am trying to learn what happens next.
Good luck with your next cycle and hope you recover from your surgery quickly! :)
