Welcome all ICLWer's to February's International Comment Leaving Week. I hope you find my little corner of the internet comfy and welcoming. Stick around whilst I spin a tale about a young couple who lives in the middle of nowhere who are just trying to start a family...

Actually...I'm not that clever or creative in my writing. I'm not that funny and I don't do jokes. My metaphors are lame and I couldn't tell a story in a concise way to save my life. If anything, I'm pissed off and frustrated with life right now.

We've been TTC for 2 year as of this month, and we're not a whole lot further along than we were when we started. No pregnancies thus far. I'm 3 IUIs into this. My husband has been diagnosed with varicocele which has been repaired (a lot of help that was). I have been diagnosed as hypothyroid which is now more precisely diagnosed as Hashimoto's Thyroiditis. A recent blood test showed possible lupus, so I'm in the throes of trying to meet with a rheumatologist to look into this. Also, I'm finally going to get in to see a RE who will hopefully be able to manage all of this for me as I have been seeing different doctor's for each thing, I pick up the RE referral this week. (See my timeline page above if you really want the nitty-gritty details, probably too much detail actually, maybe I'll get around to further organizing that some day)

I'm not actively cycling, although I ovulate every month on my own. So I've been posting on other topics, to include: knitting, weight loss, cooking, and an upcoming post on making new friends.

Follow along with me and give me your opinions on these things, there is nothing I love more than the comments people leave on my posts, except maybe the real friendships that come from the blogging world.


  1. Following your journey this months, as always! :)

  2. You sound fairly clever to me!! Good luck with the referral to an RE. I hope you get some good answers :)

  3. I am glad I found this blog! My husband and I are both from New Mexico and I love it there! Your picture from the balloon fiesta makes me miss it! Anyway, good luck with your upcoming/continued journey!

  4. Hashimoto's is seriously the pits. It took my doctors close to 17 years to figure out how to deal with mine. Hope you're able to find answers and successful treatment with everything soon!

  5. Hi! I live in Albuquerque and am also on this infertility roller coaster. I also have thyroid problems and my husband's counts are low, but right now endometriosis is kicking my butt. I'm always happy to find more New Mexican friends!

  6. Hi,

    I'm finding you for the first time through ICLW. Sorry to hear that it's been hitting the fan for you. I look forward to reading your post on new friends, so will surely return for that.

    Best wishes,


  7. Hi. I'm also visiting from ICLW. Hope all goes well with the RE! I've heard counts after varicocele surgery can take months to come back up. Hopefully you'll see a big improvement soon. And I love the land of enchantment!


If you can relate to this post or have an opinion about it, please leave a comment.

I do read everyone of them and look forward to hearing what you have to say.
