My husband, David, and I had been trying to have a baby since November of 2007. After 'letting things happen', we got the amazing news that we were pregnant in June of 2008. Sadly, that pregnancy ended at 9 weeks with a natural miscarriage. After two more chemical pregnancies, we turned to fertility treatments in 2009. That decision was a disaster, with lousy medical care and poor monitoring. In December of 2009, we made the huge decision to move onto IVF. Things fell into place like magic and we began treatment on January 15, 2010. After a blighted ovum in March, we did a successful FET in June, only to endure another blighted ovum in July. We kept up and underwent another IVF in September/October of 2010 with the arrival of our son, Brogan in July of 2011! After our lovely success (finally) we decided to undertake yet another IVF treatment and hope for a sibling for our little red headed boy. Well... so far it's worked. Our story continues below!

A Visit In Edmonton. Wedding Plans. Clomid.

I went and visited David in Edmonton last week. We met on Jan 16th and I flew home on the 20th... it was one of the nicest times we've spent together! We met David's old buddies for a great dinner and basically spent the rest of the weekend eating at our favorite restaurants, catching a couple excellent films and just being in love.

I've started the wedding plans full tilt... so much fun! I am beyond thrilled that Lori is coming with us.... Excited about the wedding... David and I are writing our own vows, which will be read at the ceremony. There are still a lot of things to plan out but most of it is falling into place pretty easily.

There is also news on the conception front. My doctor put me on clomid this month and it looks like I ovulated at the right time and have a good chance for a pregnancy! Ovulation was hell on my body, a good sign. Cramping, naseua, sore breasts and fatigue. Yes, I love it!

4DPO (days past ovulation) now and still feeling like crap but trying to ignore it and not get my hopes up too much. Either I am pregnant at this point or I'm not..... it's just a waiting game. I will look for an implantion dip or a triasphatic pattern in my temps as a great sign.... those can happen anytime between 7 and 12 days.
