Another ICLW is upon us. For those of you who are here for the first time, a disclaimer: despite the title of my blog, I am actually pregnant (6w on Thursday). But I am feeling a little too superstitious to change my blog title just yet, so apologies for being misleading. I won't be offended if you don't hang around.
My infertility story: I'm a little bit pregnant after 2.5 years of trying, including 4 Clomid cycles and 1 IVF cycle. I'm 33 years old, hypothyroid, and married to a wonderful man with not-quite-so-wonderful amounts of sperm. I started this blog just as we were starting our IVF cycle, so if you're curious about how that went down you can read the whole sordid tale right here.
Other things about me: I love food and wine, and write about them here (although the wine not so much right now). I've also been known to consume a bit of TV programming, including such cultural gems as American Idol and Gossip Girl. I live in Northern California. I've got a high-stress job that honestly seems a lot less stressful after dealing with the stress of trying to get knocked up.
I'm amazed by the ALI blog community, and can't imagine getting through the last couple of months without the support, stories and strength of all of the women (and men!) who put the most sensitive parts of their lives out on the internets. I'm looking forward to getting to know even more of you this week!
