About Me

I am a mom to amazing twin girls, a wife, and I work full time. I battled infertility for 2 years and over the course of treatments, a twin pregnancy, and raising twins I managed to gain about 80 lbs. I’ve lost about 50 lbs so far and would like to lose another 50 in my quest to become a hot mama.

Let's see, as a newbie I guees a brief synopsis is in order.  DH and I have been infertiles for a little over 2 years now. Very sad.  It's been a heartbreaking experience that NOBODY understands.  If I have to listen to one more story about "So and so stopped trying and the next week...guess what!  They got pregnant by themselves."  You know what probably happened...So and so got so tired of everyone telling their stupid stories about other people that just "got pregnant" or "adopted and then got pregnant" or "just went on vacation and got pregnant" that they said fuck it...I am going to do another round of IVF and not tell anyone.  Enter stage left-DH and I.

This is our 3rd attempt at IVF.  1 Fresh cycle that was a BFN, 1 frozen cycle that was cancelled after 2 months of meds because my lining sucks, and 1 frozen cycle that I am currently in the 2ww.  After shedding so many tears and having to tell SO many of our family and friends that yet another cycle has failed...we decided to say "fuck it." It is none of their business and when we have good news to share, they will know then.  We both have terribly supportive families but listening to them ask day in and day out if there is "any news" is just too much.  So instead...we are telling them we are taking a break due to the purchase of our new house.  

WHich segues into the next topic...we just bought a new house.  On transfer day actually.  DH and I are super happy about it and so ready to move in!  Now we just have to sell our townhome. ::bites nails::  Hopefully January 18th will have been a good day when I get my BFP!    I still believe that a BFP is like a unicorn....or lipstick lesbians.  You want to believe they are real, but they really aren't.

And for all of my visual followers....here is a time line in pictures:

Let's try to have a baby

RE is a dumbass

  3. Hi, I am new to your blog and in the midst of my first IVF cycle. This post made me laugh! I am already at the point where I just want people to mind their own business after 5 failed IUI's and am not looking forward to all of the questions in a few weeks. Keeping my fingers crossed for you!!
