Well, it's that time again! Man, ICLW seems to roll around fast. When I signed up this month I didn't realize I would already be off work for the holidays, but I am going to do my best to get to as many blogs as I can on this months list!

If you just stopping by Bio Girl for the first time, Hellllllo there! you can see our TTC history here. The short version is that I have stage four endometriosis. After three failed medicated IUI's we were blessed with our sweet Henry from our first IVF. We are now gearing up for baby number two, hoping to do an FET in March!

Speaking of the FET in March, I called Doc's office today to let them know I finally started my period (only a 54 day cycle) and to see what they wanted us to do next, now that we were waiting until March rather than February (due to lack of funds before tax returns). They said we could take one more month to try on our own, then to start back on birth control on January 24th. Assuming I am not pregnant. ha....ha. (Christmas miracle, maybe?). It would be nice if I could at least ovulate this month. It might make me feel a little more fertile rolling into the FET!

So that's it. We are infertile, but one of the lucky ones that have a sweet baby. We want another. My husband and I are huge nerds. Henry is awesome. That's us in a nutshell.


  1. Here's your first comment. You know I love your blog!!

  2. Thanks for your ICLW comment on my blog...hope you get your Christmas miricle but if not, very best wishes on your FET in March!

  3. Wouldn't a Christmas miracle be great, a little blessing for baby Henry? If not, good luck on the FET!
    Happy holidays and ICLW!

  4. I love your blog banner! Did you make it? I think I need to do something similar for the barren chemist!

  5. Praying you get a Christmas miracle but, in lieu of that, that the FET does the trick!

  9. Maybe, just maybe, some Christmas magic will spread into the New Year and you may not need that birth control come Jan 24th...
