This blog is intended to help me deal with the issues I am facing with IF(infertility). I release a lot of stress while writing. My hope is that others dealing with IF or trying to get pregnant will be able to read this as well and be able to relate or heck, make you feel better about yourself and your issues. Warning: This blog may contain strong language that may be not suitable for children and easily offended people. With that being said read at your own risk:) You've been warned!

Okay, so I already broke my resolution of blogging two times a week. But at least it wasn't 60 days between posts. Well, we are starting treatment again. I started Femara 7.5 mg today and will take it through Friday. I guess the positive side of this is I won't have the shitty side affects of Clomid. I will go in next Wednesday for a monitoring check up. Good God, is there ever an end in sight! At least I can start focusing on my training for the half-marathon which I signed up for yesterday. As a treat here is a photo from last years race, I am the one in all black.

Finally, after a 2 month hiatus, I have decided to give blogging a second chance. Thanks Mrs. F, for talking me back into it. Let me catch you up on the last two hellish months. Our 3rd IUI was a giant fail. We went in with 3 mature eggs and 9 million sperm and nada, zip, zilch. We were both devastated and angry. Both of which really weighed on our marriage. So we made an executive decision to take a treatment break for financial and emotional reasons. Since then I have started working with a trainer at my gym. He is the bomb diggity and has helped me tremendously focus my energy in other areas of my life. For cycle 18 we decided to try a non-treatment cycle( notice how I didn't say "natural" cycle) which ended up being another fat fail. We are currently on cycle 19 and are completing another non-treatment cycle. We are very hopeful for this cycle so we don't have to re-enter the horrendous world of treatment again. I am also beginning to train for a half-marathon in May. I did one last year and loved every minute of it. I will be completing this on the day after we return from FLORIDA!!! We will be going to Florida for a family vacay for a week in April. Can't wait, literally, can't wait. I will begin blogging not only about our infertility battles but about my battles on the treadmill. The treadmill and I are not friends, we have a love hate relationship which stemmed from running close to 200 miles last year for training for the half. I have made a resolution to blog at least 2 times a week, so America, as in the words of the Terminator, I'll be back.....
