You have GOT to be kidding me!?!?!

Ok, I was sickened enough by the magazine covers announcing Brit.ney Sp.ears supposed pregnancy, taunting me. I was going to decide for sure that the universe was definately out to get me if the rumors were true . But her 16 year old sister!?!?!? Give me a flipping break universe...

Just adopted....

I have officially been "just adopted" by... wait for it... my very own mother. I was calling to tell her that my first injectible IUI cycle failed and this is how she shows her support and compassion!?!? How can a person who has two biological children not freaking understand the desire to have your own children??? She also seems to think you can "just adopt" like, STAT. I explained to her that even if I was at a place where I was ready to entertain the idea (which I currently am not) that it takes YEARS to do such a thing. She responded to that concept with utter disbelief. Wow. She has been instructed that if the word adopt is ever brought up in conversation again, it will be brought up by me when, and if, I am ready. Until then she is to keep her suggestions to herself. Am I being too hard on her? Maybe I was just taking out my anger at the failed cycle on her?

Tap, tap- is this thing on???

Well, I cannot believe I am officially entering the blogosphere, so first let me introduce myself. My name is Lisa (33 yo) and I have been TTC since a miscarriage in the summer of 2005. Before that we were just haphazardly "seeing what happens" and managed to get the elusive BPF within a very "normal" six months. Since then? Not so much. Since we believed all was in fine working order, we waited about a year and a half before consulting an RE. 6 rounds of Clomid (4 with O.B.) and 2 IUIs later (one Clomid, one Follistim) I am currently sidelined this cycle due to ovarian cysts from the Follistim. After lurking the IF blogs for a while, I decided to start this blog to help myself stay sane!
