Welcome ICLWers!

Hello fellow bloggers!  I've only participated on ICLW once, and it was several months ago, so excuse me if I'm a little rusty.  After our second loss I felt compelled to participate again and try to reach out to others that may be going through the same things I am. 

A quick background:  I'm 30 and my husband is 37.  We have been together for over 5 years, and married for 2.  We started TTC a year and a half ago, and a handful of fertility drugs and two miscarriages later, we are right back to where we started.  I always suspected I would have some trouble conceiving, but never in a million years dreamed it would take this long, or that we would face not one, but two, losses. 

Where we stand today:  our second loss was just a couple weeks ago.  I have a follow up appointment with my doctor in two weeks and at that time we'll be discussing in more detail having testing done for RPL (recurrent pregnancy loss). 

I look forward to "meeting" some new people and following your journeys!


  1. Hi fellow ICLWer. I am so sorry for your recent loss and certainly your first loss. Miscarriage is awful.....torture. I, too, have experience this first hand. I can't wait to follow your journey to you healthy, living, breathing baby. We can do this!! xoxo

  2. Here from ICLW: I'm so sorry for your losses. I hope that your dreams for a healthy baby to bring home come true soon. Having lost one myself, I know the feelings of loss. I hope you can try again soon! I look forward to following your journey.

  3. Hello from ICLW! I'm so sorry for your losses. I just recently went through our first miscarriage as well. I hope that your testing is beneficial and that you can try again soon.

  4. I'm so sorry for your loss. I come here from ICLW also (I'm #5)

    Having a miscarriage is such a horrible and traumatic event. I hope that you will be able to conceive soon. And I will be following your blog and hoping so hard for you.

  5. I am so sorry for your loss. After struggling for so long it seems us IF'ers should get a pass. Best of luck to you! ICLW #61

  6. Here also from ICLW. So sorry for your losses. I've had 3 so I know what you are going thru. GL with the RPL. Mine just came back with a blood clotting disorder. They shouldn't wait so long to do the testing! Best of luck!
